The male teenage years are fraught with challenges; whilst teens may seem to eat constantly, it's hard to know if they're getting all they need during these critical years through puberty and beyond when their bodies & minds are still developing.
Blackmores Teen Multi for Guys contains a blend of essential brain health nutrients as well as providing general vitamins and minerals to help them reach their full potential, both in and out of the classroom.
The five essential brain nutrients include:
Iodine: many teenagers have low levels of iodine, a nutrient that may support optimal intellectual development and function. Iodine deficiency in children and adolescents is associated with poorer school performance, reduced achievement and IQ.
Omega-3 fatty acids: Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for growth and development for all stages of life. The benefits of omega-3s are many including support of optimal brain development.
Iron: Iron is an essential brain nutrient associated with normal memory, attention, learning, alertness, reasoning and cognition. An iron deficiency during adolescence may be associated with reduced work capacity and less efficient response to exercise. Iron requirements for boys increase during a growth spurt as new muscle is laid down.
Zinc: Zinc is an important nutrient needed for normal brain development. It is associated with normal cognitive functioning, attention and memory. Zinc is also important for immune function, cell growth and repair. Long term effects of mild zinc deficiency include delayed wound healing and impaired immune function.
Vitamin B12: Another important brain development nutrient for optimal cognitive functioning and reasoning. It is required for the normal function of all cells and for the metabolism of carbohydrates.
