VivaPrime: Fighting Child Malnutrition (Plus, a Nutritional Supplements Giveaway!)

Can you imagine going blind from a vitamin deficiency? In the United States, that’s practically unheard of, but in other parts of the world, an estimated 190 million children suffer from vitamin A deficiency (VAD), and 350,000 go blind every year from the condition. Here are more sad statistics: One-third of child mortality is caused by under-nutrition. In addition, 450,000 children under five die each year due to zinc deficiency, and 136,000 deaths are caused by iron-deficiency anemia. Shocking, isn’t it?

VivaPrime, a global leader in providing nutritional supplements that promote holistic healthcare, has partnered with Vitamin Angels to prevent child malnutrition and provide essential nutrients to children in need worldwide. Vitamin Angels is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing vital nutrition in the form of supplements to developing countries, communities and individuals in the U.S. and around the world. VivaPrime donates 1% of all sales to Vitamin Angels and, through the Save a Life campaign, VivaPrime will donate $.25 to Vitamin Angels for each person who “Likes” the VivaPrime Facebook page. For just twenty-five cents, Vitamin Angels can help a single child with both vitamin A and antiparasitics for an entire year!

Although Americans rarely suffer from the nutritional problems faced by those in other countries, we often fail to live a healthy and balanced lifestyle, putting our health at risk. With this in mind, I encourage you to look at VivaPrime’s product line. They provide 11 different formulas designed to address specific areas of your health, such as vision, cardiovascular health, skin, brain function, digestive health, and more.

  7. I learned that they donate from every purchase to a children's charity that gives vitamins to the malnourished. I love that. I purposefully chose Pampers for my twins for a while when they were donating a vaccine for every box. Give-back promotions really speak to me. I also liked that you can look for products by specific conditions. Thanks! goodwitchglinda at gmail dotcom
