Kitrillen is in multivitamins and mineral supplement for children. It contains more than 90 vitamins and more than 60 trace minerals. The formula does not contain sugar, starch, salt, wheat, gluten, yeast, and milk or soy derivatives.
Kitrillen contains a proprietary blend of Aloe Vera and whole food sea vegetation. Sea vegetation is known for its rich amounts of vitamins and minerals. Seaweed is a trusted food source in many parts of the world such as China or Japan and has an increased nutritional value. It contains fats, fibers and minerals necessary for essential body functions. For instance, the fat content is primarily composed of unsaturated fatty acids, making it a healthy food choice. Also, it is a good source of the essential fatty acids: Omega-3 and Omega-6. Dried seaweed samples studied in clinical trials indicated seaweed is rich in dietary fiber, with levels comprised between 50 to 55 %.
Minerals are also essential to a healthy development of the body and mind, particularly for children. Calcium is important for healthy bones and teeth and for the heart function, muscle contraction and the nervous system as well. Iron is essential for red blood cell production and carrying oxygen to the brain and other essential organs. Magnesium is also important to bone formation (along with Calcium), but also to the heart function. It is known as the calming mineral and helps regulate sleep, aids with stress and relaxes the body. Selenium is essential for the immune function, while Zinc is one of the most important elements to brain development, energy production and hormonal and sexual health.

Kitrillen contains more than 150 vitamins and minerals and is designed to offer support to children, during growing processes. While the large number of ingredients may be considered an advantage by the manufacturer and marketed as such, the fact that the amounts are not mentioned for all ingredients and that there are no consumer reviews to support the formula’s effectiveness are questioning the benefit claims as advertised by the producer.
We can agree that children need intakes of vitamins and minerals to support the processes that take place while growing up, however we believe that a more specialized, targeted to the needs formula, instead of a product that contains an extremely large number of ingredients is perhaps more suited.
Please ask the opinion of a specialist before using Kitrillen. Imbalances in vitamins and mineral levels may cause serious health problems.
