August is back-to-school month which means stress levels increase, sleep patterns change, and chaos is heightened, not only for kids but for the adults around them! Prepare yourself and your kids by adhering to some good old fashioned parenting and Dynamite products.

Start enforcing bedtime and downtime a week to 10 days before school starts so your child is well rested and bedtime routine is established just as school starts. Remember, a good night’s sleep helps a body rebuild itself. Also, we recommend moving back to a normal school schedule and environment during the same period of time. Reduce or eliminate sleepovers, flexible dinner times and late night barbecues. As the new routine is being established, maintain optimal health and boost your immune system with these four Dynamite products*:


1. Dynamite Foundation Products—Stress depletes nutrients, so make sure to fill the reservoir and maintain a consistent level of nutrients for when the need arises. One very easy way to get a baseline of trace minerals into kids is to add Elixir™ to their freshly squeezed, whole juice. For kids 13 and older, who can swallow capsules, DM Plus™ and Tri-Mins™ will round out the nutrient spectrum.

HisSod2. Hiscorbadyne® (pronounced "HISS-CORE-BAH-DINE")— You know how citrus and other vitamin C-rich foods are the go-to cold fighting foods? Think of this product as super-enriched orange juice! Formulated with bioflavonoids, which are potent, plant-derived antioxidants, Hiscorbadyne promotes circulation, enhances the immune system, increases capillary strength, and stimulates bile. Ingredients also help with stress and of course, fighting colds!

3. SOD—This proprietary formula of targeted minerals assists a person’s immune system to build, repair, and stabilize itself. It consists of zinc, copper, selenium, and manganese chelated to specific amino acids. For children, you can open a capsule and put ¼ to ½ of the tasteless powder contents into apple sauce. Do this once a day, for the 10 days before school starts.

4. Mega Botanicals—This great tasting "super food" contains chlorophyll-rich super greens, digestive enzymes, immune-enhancing mushrooms, herbs, probiotics and powerful antioxidants. The combination provides natural energy as well as foundational, pH-balancing and long-lasting health benefits. Mix a serving size of Mega Botanicals with water or whole juice, and serve it in the morning.

 * Dynamite’s suggested usage is easily adjusted to children of all ages however we recommend you check with your pediatrician on amounts.
