Naturally calmer children…..and happier parents!

Naturally calmer children…..and happier parents!

Kiwiherb, New Zealand manufacturers of organic herbal products, have just released their new certified organic calming product for children, Kid’s Calm.

Overtiredness, over excitedness and irritability can be everyday occurrences in the life of a growing child. Parents often feel helpless against an over stimulated child, and use of chemical sedatives or drug medication in such children and infants is excessively high. Many parents are looking for a natural calming agent as a gentle yet effective way of dealing with the situation.

Kiwiherb’s Kids Calm is an alcohol-free organic chamomile based product which has been developed to help promote relaxation and calm in children of all ages, as well as supporting normal digestion.

The digestive system of the newborn child is immature and most digestive processes do not function properly till around three months of age. Because of this, stomach upsets in infants are common, and can be distressing to both the child and their parents.

Chamomile has been used for centuries as a medicinal plant for gastrointestinal complaints and as a gentle relaxant to promote calmness and tranquility in children. Its traditional uses have been validated by scientific studies in recent years, and it is highly regarded by medical herbalists as one of the safest and most effective herbs for children.

Kiwiherb Kid’s Calm is a 100% natural formula manufactured from organic chamomile and flavoured with blackcurrant, vanilla and malt. Because it comes in a liquid form it works quickly in the body, is easy to take, and allows greater flexibility of dosage.

As with all Kiwiherb’s top quality products, Kid’s Calm has been developed by professional medical herbalists and pharmacists completely committed to producing safe and effective formulas.

Kid’s Calm is suitable for children ages 0 to 12 and is available nationwide from pharmacies and health food stores.
