Kids Supplement Protocol from Dr. Daryl Gioffre

Kids Supplement ProtocolKids Supplement Protocol

One of our favorite gut experts is back on the blog today. This time sharing a general supplement protocol for children. Dr. Daryl Gioffre is here to tell us exactly what he gives his kids on a daily basis (age 6 and 9) complete with brands, directions and WHY our children need each one.

If you have yet to meet Dr. Daryl, he has been on the blog and The HIM & HER Show many times. His expertise in the field of wellness, specifically gut health, gut labs and supplements with his own ‘acid-kicking’ formulas is unmatched. He has given us incredible tips and recommendations over the last few years and we’ll link every single one at the end of this post (plus, a code for you to shop).

In this post you can expect recommendations on the best greens, probiotic, Omega-3, minerals and D3/K2 for children. As always, be sure to check with your own healthcare provider when starting a new supplement.

With that, let’s get right to it with Dr. Daryl Gioffre.




Acid-Kicking Berry Greens by Alkamind

Directions: Mix 1 scoop in 6 ounces of water upon rising or before breakfast. 

It’s important that our kids eat their greens, but DRINKING their greens is even better. In a recent study by the CDC, only 1 in 10 children are consuming the recommended amount of vegetables and greens. One glass of Acid-Kicking Greens is an easy and cost-effective way to meet these requirements in less than 30 seconds. 


ProbioMed Kids by Designs for Health

Chew 1 tablet with breakfast.

Our gut is our children’s first line of defense, so we need to STRENGTHEN it every day with a daily probiotic. ProbioMed™ Kids is a custom, synergistic probiotic formula offering 10 billion colony-forming units (CFUs) per dose. It includes 11 diverse, well-researched strains, including Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium probiotic bacteria strains and the nonpathogenic yeast strain, Saccharomyces boulardii. The amounts of each strain are clearly disclosed, and the formulation is designed to promote gastrointestinal microbial diversity in children. These chewable tablets have a natural berry flavor sweetened only with monk fruit, free of any artificial sweeteners.


Acid-Kicking D3 + K2 by Alkamind 

Directions: Dosing depends on age

+ I give my son Brayden (9 years) 5 drops in the mouth at breakfast = 2,500 IU

+ I give my daughter Alea (6 years) 4 drops = 2,000 IU

Our children can get Vitamin D from the sun, but research shows most are significantly deficient, and they need to supplement.  Vitamin D improves immune function, supports for their growing bones and muscles, cell growth and also inflammation regulation. 

ImmuniKid by Zahler

Directions: Chew 1 tablet with breakfast

A grape-flavored chewable tablet that promotes a speedy immune system response, with Vitamins C, A, Zinc, Elderberry, Beta Glucans, and more. 

OMEGA-3 FISH OIL (Inflammation and Brain Optimization):

NeuroImmune DHA 900 by Dr. Green Life Organics 

Directions: 1 teaspoon in mouth, 1 hour before bed

With 1,400mg of Omega-3 per teaspoon, this is exactly what our children need to reduce inflammation, and also support healthy brain function and nervous system development. Best part, it’s tasteless.

Acid-Kicking Minerals Lemon by Alkamind

Directions: Mix 1 scoop in 3-4 ounces of water, 1 hour before bed

Minerals play crucial roles in our children’s growth and development, and the research shows they are massively deficient (because our soil is deficient). In fact, a recent study looked at the mineral content in spinach, and they found that we now must eat 75 servings of spinach, to give us the SAME mineral content that only one serving gave us in 1948. How CRAZY is that!  Our kids need to supplement with minerals, especially magnesium, every day. Acid-Kicking Minerals contains the 4 most crucial medical-grade minerals, in an easy to absorb form, in 3 delicious flavors.
