Just say vitamin E

A study suggests that vitamin E could be used as a safe nutritional intervention that may benefit children with a new syndrome that presents with a combination of allergy, verbal apraxia, a speech disorder in which a person has trouble saying what he or she wants to say correctly and consistently, and malabsorption. Growing evidence support the benefits of omega 3 fatty acid supplementation in a number of neurodevelopmental disorders. Anecdotally children with verbal apraxia will often demonstrate leaps in their speech production when taking high-quality fish oil.The addition of vitamin E to omega 3 fatty acid supplementation in this cohort of children induced benefits that exceeded those expected from just speech therapy alone, according to parental report.Vitamin E Mixed Tocopherols delivers  a blend of alpha, gamma, beta and delta tocopherols which have synergistic benefits.

Xylitol can help prevent tooth decay

Formulating products with xylitol may reduce the development of tooth decay, according to a new study.Children consuming eight grams per day of xylitol had 1.3 few decayed teeth, compared to children consuming only 2.7 grams per day of the sweetener, report researchers from the University of Washington in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine.Xylitol (“ZY-litol”) is a natural sweetener that is made from Birch tree bark and corn husks and tastes just like sugar, but has 40% less calories and creates no sugar highs or lows! Also, Xylitol does not feed intestinal yeast, and does not raise insulin or blood sugar levels.

Xylibrush is a great tasting xylitol based toothpaste for both children and adults.

Xylitol crystals for use in cooking, baking and in drinks are available in 1.5 lbs, 3.0lbs packaged crystals and in individual sweetener packets for on the go.
