Introducing: Daily and Kid’s Multi Essentials+, a liquid vitamin and mineral formula for the whole family
A good, well-balanced diet should supply most of the essential nutrients we need to power us through the day and support our overall health. However, let’s be real, not everyone is able to or chooses to eat as well as they should all the time and it can be easier than we think to get sub-optimal amounts of key vitamins and minerals – especially when kids with ‘choosy’ preferences are involved. We only have to look at some of the nutritional surveys done in the US and Canada to see that essential nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin C, magnesium, and calcium all have intakes by kids and adults that are less than stellar. These are critical ones for immune health, bone and teeth health, eye health and overall energy and growth and development.
Given the chance to develop a new vitamin formula from the ground up, we took these deficiencies into consideration and also realized that not everyone can — or likes to — swallow pills. Formulated for optimal digestion and absorption, Flora’s Daily and Kid’s Multi Essentials+ liquid formula can be used by the whole family (ages 4+) to support overall health and vitality and ensure any nutrient gaps in our diet are being filled. These comprehensive vitamin & mineral formulas come in a tasty fruit juice and whole food base that’s easy to drink straight or mix into smoothies or juice. Each 20 mL dose is packed with enough essential nutrients that it would require 2 large capsules if it were a powder formula.
Here's some of what you can expect:
- Vegan + Dairy-Free + Yeast & Gluten-Free formula
- No Artificial Colors or Flavors
- In a delicious base of fruit juices and herbs
- Formulated with an antioxidant blend of astaxanthin and organic elderberry and acerola powders

Here’s some of what each essential nutrient in the formula can provide:
Vitamin Ahelps to maintain eyesight, skin membranes, immune function, and night vision and is crucial for the development and maintenance of bones and teeth.
B Vitaminshelp to metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into energy and fuel for the body and are crucial for growth and development of everything from red blood cells, neurotransmitters, and tissue formation.
Vitamin Cis an antioxidant that helps to metabolize fats and protein, develop and maintain bones, cartilage, teeth, and gums, helps with wound healing and forming connective tissue and supports overall immune health.
Vitamin Dis a fat soluble vitamin helps in the development and maintenance of bones and teeth, helps the body to absorb and use calcium and phosphorus and, along with calcium intake, helps to prevent osteoporosis. It also plays a role supporting immune health. Vitamin D3 is the preferred form of this vitamin as it has been shown to be more effective in raising vitamin D levels in the body.
Vitamin EThis is another fat soluble vitamin that is an important antioxidant to help maintain health and protect cells and tissue throughout the body from free radical damage.
Iodineis a trace mineral important for overall metabolism and the maintenance of good health and it helps the body to create thyroid hormones for the proper functioning of the thyroid gland.
CholineThis fatty substance is needed for production of the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine and for transporting fats throughout the body. It is an essential nutrient for making key components of cell membranes (such as phosphatidylcholine). It also plays an important role in brain and memory development.
Calcium is an essential mineral for bone health and supplementation can increase bone density and strength while reducing the risk of fractures later in life. Calcium citrate has been shown to have slightly better absorption than other dietary sources, does not affect stomach acid and doesn’t typically cause constipation.
Magnesium, besides being an important mineral for hundreds of enzyme reactions in the body, also plays an important role in bone mineralization and in healthy teeth. About 50-60% of the magnesium in the body can be found in the bones. Magnesium also transports calcium across cell membranes in a process vital to nerve impulse conduction, muscle contraction, and normal heart rhythms.
