A question I get asked so often is CanXida Restore and the CanXida Rebuild supplements be taken by children? So let’s look at the CanXida lineup of products here. We’ve got the Restore of course, the green labeled Restore. This is the enzyme probiotic. We’ve got the Rebuild, which is the multi. And then of course we got the Remove, which is the cleansing product. It basically cleans up the gut. All three supplements can be used by children. However, you need to look carefully at the dosages of these supplements when it comes to kids. For example, if we look at Remove, it’s a perfect supplement for many people really to get their gut in a really good state of cleanse. So for a child, if you were looking at a very small child, anything under five, you need to be quite careful. But you can slice these tablets up into three, four pieces, not a problem.
Some people crush, Remove and Rebuild for example, and just take a pinch of that and mix that in with food. That can be done for children, not a problem. The bigger the child, the older the child, of course the more you can dose up. So once you’ve got a say between five to seven year old, quite a robust child, you could probably look at a half a tablet, not a problem for the type of child. Cut it up into pieces or make it fine. It does not taste great. That’s the only problem. So mixing in with a tiny little bit of honey, a wee bit of honey or a little bit of mashed, some type of food can sometimes mask the taste on it. I know some people who’ve told me they’d actually pureed some fruits up and mixed it in with that. So there’s many ways you can get it in.
So yeah, it all depends on the size. So the tablets are easy actually to cut up with a proper tablet cutter. And of course when your child gets older, you can give them one per day. The Rebuild is a big chunky tablet. I didn’t want a lot of compression behind that to make it really small. I wanted to keep it in a more of a natural form, so I would cut the Rebuild tablet probably in three or four pieces and see how that goes for a swallow. For a child that shouldn’t be really a problem. When the child gets a bit older, of course it won’t be an issue.

CanXida Restore’s a bit different though because it’s a capsule. So you can open the capsule up, but it doesn’t work as well if you open as it would if you kept it in that capsule because it is a particular type of capsule, a slow release, which slowly opens up when it’s well inside the gut. So you want to get these probiotics down as far as you can and that’s the whole idea about Restore. But I do know several patients with children that have opened up the capsule and sprinkled it in yogurt or mixed it in with food. That can work too, but again the enzymes could be a bit strong tasting in the mouth. So you need to be careful with that for children. Once you set up that issue where they don’t like the taste of it, you could get a bit of resistance there.
But Restore is not a problem for children also. And particularly between the five to seven age group, they can often take one capsule with a main meal. Not a problem at all, but younger than that you need to open the capsule up. I would say little child and then you sprinkle a little bit on food and just play it by ear. See how it goes. You’d only do one or two doses over a few days and just see what the reaction of the digestive system is like. If it’s favorable, you can proceed. If not, you need to back off so you don’t push children too hard. Okay, it’s not a good idea with any kind of supplement to do that.
Of course with older children, they should have no problem in swallowing the capsules or tablets in their entirety. It’s just with the young ones, you’ll have to cut them up. But they are suitable. Babies, not a good idea. Not great idea to give these supplements to a lady who is nursing, breastfeeding not a great idea. Also for pregnancy, not ideally supplements to be used during pregnancy, but preferably after the child’s born. And also to be an element of caution naturally there, because if the mother is nursing, breastfeeding, it’s not really good.
I don’t usually like a lot of supplements used at that time. I prefer to rely more on food. I think that’s a smarter idea, but the supplements have their place and they can be used by a lot of people and they have been used by a lot of families and around the world. So don’t be afraid to use it on children. Just be cautious and go in slow and look at the dose of course, and the age. You don’t need a lot of the CanXida product with a child at all. Okay? Just small amounts. Give it a go.
