Pediafocus: Protein/Nutritional Supplement (now available at Integrative Pediatrics!)

pediafocusWhat should your child have for breakfast?  What is the best way to get all the micronutrients they may need?  Is there a nutritional protein supplement that is dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, preservative-free, with no artificial dyes or colors and no artificial sweeteners, HFCS, or GMO sugar?

YES!

After extensive searching, I have found what may be the best option out there: PEDIAFOCUS.  This product meets all of the requirements listed above.  The protein is from peas.  When I do micronutrient  testing (done by Spectracell, and tests the nutrients inside the white blood cells to give me a glimpse of what may be going on inside your cells and your brain), I often find children with deficiencies of various vitamins and minerals. I always find vitamin D deficiency, and often one or more of: glutamine, tyrosine, glycine, NAC (N-acety-cysteine), DMG (dimethylglycine), MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), taurine, phosphatidyl choline, phosphatidylserine, or inositol.  PEDIAFOCUS contains a good amount of all these nutrients. 

 

So, again, what to have for breakfast?  Avoid the processed cereals.  If no egg sensitivity or allergy, they are a great way to start the day. Steel-cut oats (organic from bobs red mill) are a great start and if there isn’t any nut allergy, add some ground nuts, and/or flax meal and fresh organic fruit.  In a hurry? How about a fruit smoothy with PEDIAFOCUS and ground flax?  If you can tolerate dairy, add naturaly fermented yogurt and if you cannot do that, add some probiotics.

Ask for PEDIAFOCUS next time you are in our office!
