Hello! My name is Susan Marie Fluegel, I am a nutritional biochemist and the nutritional formulator behind Tally Kids. I wrote this for you, the parent, to outline step by step the research & thought process behind the vitamin package inside Tally Kids. This article is fully referenced.
With Tally Kids, our goal was clear. To design a nutritious plant-based milk for children that parents can trust. We have accomplished that with this formula and vitamin package.
I am thankful to Jon & Kyle for building this product following my exact recommendations.
For questions and comments, I can be reached through our company mailbox, email@example.com
Proper nutrition will boost your child’s daily life and mental health. Nutrition in childhood even determines kids’ susceptibility to diseases like diabetes, heart disease, cancer and metabolic disorders later in life.
Right away I knew we needed to add the whole vitamin B-complex: B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folate [folic acid]) and B12 (cobalamin). B-vitamins work together, so a deficiency in any one B-vitamin can reduce energy production; this can cause negative metabolic and health outcomes (Tardy et al. 2020).
Several nutrients, including B2, B6, folate, B12, choline, magnesium, zinc and vitamin D are involved in an epigenetic process called methylation.
In methylation a methyl group (CH3) is added to DNA which influences gene expression (the ability of the gene to code for proteins). Methylation can turn genes on or off or modify what proteins the genes create. (Amenyah et al. 2020)
Methylation is used to:
1) Create phosphatidylcholine; an important neurotransmitter that plays a role in memory and supports metabolic health.
2) Synthesize and modify proteins. Protein methylation helps regulate different cellular and biological processes.
3) Make methyl groups (CH3) which attach to DNA to help modify genes. Proper methylation of genes protects your children from future diseases such as cancer, autoimmune disorders, metabolic disorders, and neurological disorders (Jin and Liu 2018)
