Freedom from Food Allergies

Could Taking a Multi at a Young Age Prevent Food Allergies?

Karolinska researchers find children taking multivitamins at an early age were less likely to have developed food allergies.

Karolinska researchers find children taking multivitamins at an early age were less likely to have developed food allergies.

Taking a multivitamin may be kids’ best defense from forming a food allergy.

According to recently released findings published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, when researchers looked at kids who had taken a multivitamin before their fourth birthday, they found that they were about 40 percent less likely to have a food allergy compared to their fellow sub-4-year-olds that did not take one.

One caveat, though:  The findings were only applicable to kids that took a multivitamin before the age of four.  For the rest of the 2,400+ kids observed, there was no difference in food allergy incidence and multivitamin use.

The study is published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and performed by researchers from the Karolinska Institute.

The prevalence of food allergies among kids today is a confounding issue for many health professionals.  Twenty years ago, food allergies were few and far between.  That’s not the case today, as an estimated 20 percent of all kids—and 5 percent of all Americans—have at least one food allergy.    In fact, since 1989, there’s been a 400 percent rise in food allergies, mostly from things like wheat, eggs, shellfish, milk, and the mother of all food allergens, peanuts.

The question, of course, is why?  Some suggest it’s due to the prevalence of genetically-modified soy; others, referring specifically to the prevalence of peanut allergies, think it’s due to the way in which peanuts are prepared and processed, dry roasting them instead of boiling them (In China, where food allergies are far less prevalent, peanuts are predominantly eaten boiled).

To me—and to just about every one else in the natural health world, for that matter—it’s clear as day why there’s been an upswing in food allergies:  food ingredients.

The best illustration of this is with soy.  In 1996, in an attempt to make the soy crop more profitable and last longer, soy was genetically-engineered; in other words, its DNA was tampered with to extend its shelf life.  And it just so happens that in this same year, there was a 50 percent rise in soy allergies, cracking into the Top 10 list of food allergies for the first time.  It’s remained there ever since.

The prevalence of food allergies is one of the main reasons why I’m so passionate about natural health.  Because I firmly believe that if food wasn’t so packed with additives and preservatives, there would be no such thing as the “Big 8.”  In case you didn’t already know, the “Big 8” represents the eight most common food allergies.

Reform in the food industry is likely years, if not decades, away.  In the meantime, take some preventative action by getting your kids onto a multivitamin as early as possible.

There are LOADS of multivitamins to choose from.  But in my personal opinion, there’s no multi that’s better than Ola Loa.  Only this is not a multi you take, this is a multi you drink.

The nutrients in multivitamins are absorbed by the body more efficiently when they can be dissolved in liquid.  And while there are other multivitamins on the market you can drink, Ola Loa stands above the rest because their multivitamin is more than just vitamin C and sugar.  Theirs contains all the active ingredients that every multivitamin ought to have, including amino acids!

And unlike a pill, where only 10-20 percent of its contents are absorbed by the body, the absorption rate is 78 to 88 percent higher with Ola Loa, according to Physician’s Desk Reference.

Try it for yourself, and feel the difference!
