Prevent Cavities and Pale Faces: Grandparents & Vitamins C, D, Niacin, & Thiamine

Vitamins play a vital role in growth and development. It is a long and perilous journey from an egg and sperm to a healthy adult. Many of the instructions contained in human genes are used only during growth and development. Like all genes, the specialized genes involved in growth and development often depend upon vitamins to complete their designated tasks. As a result, children need vitamins for more tasks than adults.

Vitamins were discovered in the early 20th century and have only been readily available since the 1950's. Since that time, the use of vitamins has grown steadily. More and more people are taking vitamins regularly. Of the available vitamins, only vitamin C, vitamin D, niacin, and thiamine prevent named deficiency diseases (scurvy, rickets, pellegra, and beriberi respectively).

Sadly, many children aren't getting the extra vitamins they need. There is no substitute for grandparents. Grandparents embody the wisdom of the community and maintain a special interest in the welfare of little children. Go to any drug store vitamin isle, and see for yourself that grandparents are the chief consumer of high potency vitamin supplements.

It's time for grandparents to take a more active role seeing to it that the children in their families get the same benefits from vitamins that they do. I understand the concerns for safety. That's why this blog is here. The supplements I recommend for the children are the most important four, and the doses I recommend are safe. Grandparents reading this blog can proceed with confidence.

Prevent cavities, pale faces, and anorexia. Take an active role in caring for children. Read more here. If you take vitamin C, niacin, thiamine, and vitamin D - see to it that the children in your family take them too. Questions? Feel free to write and ask.
