Together, VivaPrime and Vitamin Angels are working to prevent child malnutrition worldwide, one child at a time
An estimated 190 million children in the World suffer from vitamin A deficiency (VAD) and 350,000 go blind from vitamin A deficiency every year. Even more shocking, 1/3 of child mortality is caused by under nutrition. In addition, each year there are 450,000 children under five that die due to zinc deficiency, and 136,000 deaths caused each year due to iron-deficiency anemia.
VivaPrime is working with Vitamin Angels, 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, in order to reduce child mortality and prevent malnutrition. Through the social media `Save a Life’ campaign, VivaPrime will donate $.25 to Vitamin Angels for each person that “Likes” the VivaPrime Facebook page. For just $.25, Vitamin Angels can help a single child with both vitamin A and anti-parasitics for one year. In addition, VivaPrime donates a portion of each sale of VivaPrime products to Vitamin Angels to offer continuous support for Vitamin Angels and their courageous efforts.
VivaPrime holistic nutritional solutions are designed to target specific health concerns, while improving overall health and wellness. The products combine the best of nature with quality science, and are designed with optimum dosages to provide comprehensive, convenient, and cost effective solutions. Every VivaPrime product is blister packed to protect the potency of natural ingredients from oxidation and humidity. For more information visit VivaPrime’s website, or on twitter, or facebook.
