What age is Calm Mind for?
Calm Mind is formulated for children 6+ years. Calm Mind contains Saffron ‘affron®’ which in children 12+ years calms the mind and soothes the nerves, reduces and relieves the symptoms of mild anxiety, nervous tension and unrest, and relieves irritability. While saffron hasn't yet been studied in younger children for these specific indications our other active ingredients (zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6) help to support nervous system function in children 6+ years.
My child in younger than 2 years, can they take these supplements?
Not all products are suitable for children as young as 2 years. Please read the label and follow directions of use. The tablet is also a chewable so your child must be able to chew.
If you are working with a healthcare practitioner and they have made an off-label recommendation, this is at the discretion of the healthcare practitioner.
Are the products regulated or approved?
Yes, the I’m Nutrients products are listed with the industry regulatory body in Australia. You can find our AUSTL number on the front of the label of each product.
In Australia, the TGA regulates complementary medicines. Supplements purchased overseas do not have the same restrictions and regulations to abide by. You’ll see supplements online that contain ingredients that are restricted in Australia for safety and efficacy reasons. They may also make therapeutic claims that we are not allowed to make in Australia.
When should my child take the chewable tablets?
The chewable tablet can be taken anytime of the day. For children, 12+ years, that require multiple tablets, we recommend separating the dosages. Eg. One in morning and one at night for best results and absorption. Each product is different so please read the directions of use on the label.
What if my child doesn't like a chewable tablet?
If you child prefers powder or liquid medicines, the tablets can be ground and added to water or smoothie.
Are there any side effects?
There are no known side effects.
How much iron is in iron immunity?
Iron Immunity contains 29.41mg of iron bisglycinate which is equivalent to 5mg of elemental iron, approximately 50% of the RDI for children aged 2-13 years. Iron bisglycinate is an amino acid bound mineral so it is easily absorbed in the small intestine.
Why does Iron Immunity say "not for the treatment of iron deficiency conditions"?
Iron Immunity helps to prevent dietary deficiency of iron not iron deficiency conditions. Iron deficiency conditions include iron deficiency anaemia, where iron stores are low (ferritin) and red blood cell formulation is low.
Do the products contain any animal products?
Most of the I'm Nutrients products are free from animal derived ingredients, with the exception of Iron Immunity which contains lactoferrin, derived from Australian cows milk. The lactoferrin we use is Kosher and Halal certified.
Are there any excipients in the product?
Yes, but we were very picky about which ones we used. Some excipients must be used to ensure quality and consistency during the manufacture process. Most vitamin companies do not disclose their excipients list however we feel very confident about ours.
Please email us, if you would like our very short list of excipients.
Does Iron Immunity contain sulfites?
Yes, one of our natural flavours potentially contains small traces of sulfites (less than 10 parts per million). The TGA requires us to include "contains sulfites" as a label warning as it is a potential allergen for those who are allergic, as with other allergens like shellfish, soy and dairy.
Your chewable's taste sweet, is there any sweetener or sugar in them?
No added sugar or artificial sweeteners. A miracle we know! We are the only Australian supplement company that is currently using monk fruit to sweeten our supplements.

Where is your lactoferrin sourced from?

It is prepared directly from fresh cow’s milk that has passed through our innovative manufacturing process designed to minimise protein denaturation, and so optimise the preservation of lactoferrin’s functional properties. The lactoferrin we use is both Kosher and Halal certified.
