Assists you in supporting mind and body development. Blackmores Teen Multi for Girls is a multivitamin and mineral supplement including five nutrients essential for healthy brain development: omega-3 fatty acids, iodine, iron, vitamin B12 and zinc.
Teenage girls need a variety of nutrients to support their growth through puberty and beyond, when their bodies and minds are still developing. Ensuring adequate intake of nutrients through a balanced diet can be challenging at that age. Teen Multi for Girls contains five essential brain nutrients and general vitamin and mineral support, to make sure girls can reach their full mental and physical potential.
Teen Multi for Girls contains iodine, a nutrient that may support optimal intellectual development and function. Iodine levels are low in many teenagers, and iodine deficiency in children and adolescents has been associated with poorer performance at school, as well as reduced achievement and IQ.
Omega-3 fatty acids play an essential role in development and growth at all stages of life. One of the many benefits of omega-3 fatty acids is to support optimal brain development.
Many teenage girls are at risk of iron deficiency due to the combined action of continued growth, menstruation (which causes iron losses), and a low dietary intake of iron. A crucial brain nutrient, iron is associated with learning, reasoning, normal memory function, cognition, attention, and alertness. Iron deficiency during adolescence may be associated with a reduced intellectual work capacity and a less efficient physical response to exercise.
Zinc is another important nutrient needed for healthy normal brain development, yet many teenage girls consume less than the recommended daily intake for zinc. Zinc is associated with normal attention, cognitive functioning, and memory. Zinc also plays an important role for cell growth and repair, and immune function. Mild zinc deficiency can cause long-term effects such as delayed wound healing as well as compromised immune function.
Vitamin B12 is another important nutrient for brain development, optimal cognitive functioning and reasoning. Vitamin B12 is required for the metabolism of carbohydrate and normal healthy function of all cells.
