Our Story

How do we Keep our Kids Healthy?

That’s the exact question holistic pediatrician, Dr. Murray Clarke, asked 20 years ago when he noticed a dramatic increase in the number of patients coming to him with illnesses like immune deficiencies, allergies, eczema, asthma, ADD, and autism.

He researched obsessively and came up with the solution— great tasting, easily absorbed supplements that replace what’s missing in children’s diets.

He used extensive research from his pediatric practice and many medical modalities (Western Medicine, Homeopathy, Naturopathic Medicine, Nutritional Medicine & Herbal Medicine) to formulate ChildLife Essentials®. The first complete line of premium nutritional supplements made especially for infants and children.

He made sure only the highest quality, most pure, potent and natural ingredients went into his formulas and had them meticulously tested by third-party labs to ensure they are the best nutritional supplements on the market for children— Supplements Dr. Murray Clarke feels great about giving his own children, as well as his patients.
