A syrup that contains 75% of honey

Did you know that the Multivitamin junior syrup contains 75% of honey? A single bottle contains 157 grams of honey. The syrup is honey-based, since it significantly improves its taste and makes it more aromatic and more pleasant for consumption. At the same time, honey serves as a natural sweetener, the syrup therefore does not contain any added artificial sweeteners. In addition to this, the product protects against microorganisms, such as bacteria, mould and yeast, thus acting as a natural preservative. For this reason you do not need to keep it in a refrigerator, but may store it at room temperature during the entire period of the syrup being open.

Honey consists of approximately 200 different substances determining its taste, scent, aroma and colour. This bee product is much more than just a sweetener exactly due to its complex composition. 
 
The syrup is also enriched with pear and orange juice to make the taste even more pleasant for children who adore it. It also contains oligofructose, which acts as a prebiotic.    
     
 

Do children in Slovenia consume vitamins in a sufficient quantity?

Childhood is the time of a child's accelerated growth and physical, emotional and mental development. The nutritional status, energy and nutrient intake and eating habits of children are important factors that affect a child’s health and lay the foundations of an individual’s health during adulthood. The nutritional status is closely linked to an individual's lifestyle, which includes eating habits, physical activity and biorhythm. A safe, varied, mixed and protective diet, which is adjusted to the age and level of physical activity in terms of energy and nutritional value, has to be ensured to children during their period of growth.
 
During their growing up period, a balanced diet is very important, since it enables children an optimal growth and development, and protects and strengthens their health. At the same time, it prevents the occurrence of chronic non-communicable diseases, such as Type II diabetes, which is increasingly becoming an issue already in children, and also in over- and underweight children, and deficient diseases, such as hypovitaminosis (low vitamin intake).
 
Projections by the World Health Organisation for 2030 indicate that chronic non-communicable diseases will become the leading public health issue in all countries of the world. HBSC research data (2002, 2006, 2010) show that Slovenian children and teenagers do not have a healthy diet as well. They prefer to eat mostly unhealthy, energy-dense and nutrient-poor food, which is usually rich in discouraged fats and added sugars.
 
They do not consume sufficient quantities of vegetables and fish. Moreover, Slovenian children and teenagers do not have appropriate drinking habits, they are often thirsty and love to drink non-alcoholic (flavoured) beverages with added sugars. Children and teenagers also consume a small amount of daily meals with respect to the recommended quantity and at the same time eat irregularly. Data show that during the week, less than half of all teenagers have breakfast regularly every day, whereas a third do not have breakfast at all

Due to all the mentioned factors, children and teenagers do not always achieve the sufficient intake of vitamins and minerals. The Multivitamin junior, containing 9 of the most important vitamins for children during their period of growth, is here to help for such deficiencies.
 
     

What role do vitamins have in the syrup?

B-complex vitamins
Vitamins B work together and complement each other. Each has its task, which in certain cases may be achievable only if other vitamins carry out theirs.
  • Vitamins B are important for energy, metabolism and the nervous system and for a good cognitive development of children.
  • Important B-complex vitamins were added (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12).
  • Vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 contribute to the normal function of the immune system and normal red blood cell formation.
  • Thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B12 and vitamin B6 contribute to the normal function of the nervous system.
  • Pantothenic acid, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 contribute to reducing tiredness and fatigue.
  • Pantothenic acid contributes to normal mental performance.
  • Vitamin B12 has a very important role in the function of the nervous system.

     
Vitamin A
Vitamin A contributes to the function of the immune system and to the maintenance of normal vision. It also contributes to the normal iron metabolism, to the maintenance of a healthy mucosa and skin.

Children with frequent infections are most exposed to the risk of vitamin A deficiency. Children's eyes are exposed to a higher risk than the eyes of adults, since they have a wider pupil and less pigment. In addition to this, the ophthalmic lens of children does not filter harmful UV rays up to the age of 12. Children additionally burden their eyes during the school year, if they do not keep a sufficient distance from books and notebooks when reading. Nowadays particularly, they spend more time in front of displays as is recommended. For this reason they have to take vitamin A in recommended quantities.
Vitamin D
Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system. The Multivitamin junior syrup contains vitamin D in its natural D3 form (cholecalciferol), which absorbs well into the body. Experts have discovered that vitamin D-binding receptors are located in the cells of various tissues all over the body, and can also be found in most of the cells of the immune system. The optimal quantities of vitamin D in the blood are extremely important for the normal function of the immune system.
Moreover, vitamin D in combination with vitamin C is necessary for the normal growth and development of children’s bones, since it contributes to the maintenance of healthy bones and teeth.

     
 
Vitamin C
In their growing and development period, children need sufficient quantities of vitamin C, since the body is not able to synthesise it by itself. The richest source of vitamin C is food of plant origin, like blackcurrant, pepper, berries, Brussels sprouts, citruses, potatoes, etc. If there is not sufficient vitamin C in the child's diet or if the child refuses to eat fruit and vegetables, rich with vitamin C, it needs to be added.

Vitamin C (or ascorbic acid) is a water soluble vitamin that has an important anti-oxidative role and is involved in numerous biological processes. Vitamin C has a general and important role in the function of the immune system and contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Among other things, it also assists in forming collagen, which is necessary for the normal function of veins, bones, cartilage, gums, skin and teeth.

The classic clinical disease of vitamin C deficiency in babies is called the Moeller-Barlow disease. The symptoms of the disease in children are bone growth and formation disorders, which may occur before clinical signs. For example, general fatigue, and later reduced performance and disorders in the mental well-being and slower recovery after illnesses, and also susceptibility to infections and poor wound healing.
 
Vitamin C also contributes to:
  • releasing energy during metabolism;
  • improving the function of the nervous system;
  • the normal psychological function;
  • the increase of iron absorption.

Honey
Honey is a natural sweet gift, given to us by bees that make it from flower nectar (floral honey) or from insect secretions that remain on trees as sticky liquid (honeydew honey). Floral honey types are wildflower honey, acacia honey, chestnut honey, lime honey, and canola honey; honeydew honey types are forest honey, fir honey, maple honey, oak honey, and spruce honey. Bees process nectar or honeydew, enrich it with their gland secretions, and store it in the beehive to ripen. Honey is the source of solar energy and life fuel in the beehive. It contains precious nutrients and is a powerful substance.
