Feb. 10, 2015 -- For years we've been told to eat a low-fat diet to protect ourselves from heart disease.
But a new report says those"...
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children up to age 16, in areas where drinking water contains less than optimal levels of fluoride, receive daily fluoride supplementation.²
POLY- VI- FLOR 0.25 mg with Iron drops provide fluoride in drop form for infants and young children from 6 months to 3 years of age in areas where the drinking water contains less than 0.3 ppm of fluoride and for children ages 3-6 years in areas where the drinking water contains 0.3 through 0.6 ppm of fluoride.² Each 1.0 mL supplies sodium fluoride (0. 25 mg fluoride) plus eight essential vitamins and iron.
POLY-VI-FLOR (multivitamin, iron and fluoride) ® 0.25 mg with Iron drops supply significant amounts of vitamins A, C, D, E, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, and Iron to supplement the diet, and to help assure that deficiencies of these nutrients will not develop. Thus, in a single easy-to-use preparation, infants and children obtain eight essential vitamins and iron, plus fluoride.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
1.0 mL daily or as prescribed. May be dropped directly into mouth with 'Safti- Dropper,' or mixed with cereal, fruit juice, or other food.
POLY-VI-FLOR 0. 25 mg with Iron (Multivitamin, iron and fluoride supplement) drops are available on prescription only in bottles of 50 mL.
