Children ages 5 to 8 years of age: We recommend giving children in this age group one Optimal-M capsule along with one Optimal-V capsule per day. If they are unable to swallow a pill or capsule, the contents of the capsule can be poured into a drink or meal replacement shake like ARIIX Pure Nourish. You certainly can blend in different frozen fruits to make these drinks tastier. However, you will not change the potency or the ability to absorb these nutrients by doing this.
Children 9 to 12 years of age (with weight ranging from 75 to 100 pounds): We recommend 2 Optimal-V capsules per day along with 1 Optimal-M capsule per day for this age group. Again, if they are not able to swallow pills or capsules you can follow the recommendations noted above.
Children 13 to 18 years of age (weight range 100 to 120 pounds. If weight is more than 120 pounds, use adult dosage recommendations): We recommend giving children in this age group one-half the adult dose of The Optimals daily. This would be three Optimal-V capsules and two Optimal-M capsules per day in divided doses-2 Optimal-V capsules and 1 Optimal-M Capsule with breakfast and 1 Optimal-V capsule and 1 Optimal-M capsule with the evening meal.
