Healthy Kids need Healthy Digestion – Do you know what’s really in your child’s probiotic…

A child’s world is pretty different to yours; it’s not surprising their internal world is different too.

Giving them a good probiotic makes sense to support healthy digestion and immune function, but where do you start?

Children need probiotics made for children

Did you know your child’s digestive ecosystem is comprised of different microflora (good bacteria) to yours? An infant’s intestinal microflora comprises up to 90% Bifidobacteria especially the species B. breve, B. infantis and B. longum. So important to their gut’s ecosystem, these three species are known as ‘foundational species’.

This is good to know when looking for a probiotic to give your child, but there’s more to it. Not only does the species matter, you can also give them specific strains of each species so you know exactly what you are giving your child and why.

Who cares about strains?

The name of a probiotic is like a ‘first and family name’, you get a good idea of ‘who’ the probiotic is. The strain is like a finger print; it’s unique and tells you exactly what type of probiotic you are giving your child.

When it comes to children’s probiotics, look for these three probiotic strains B. breve M-16V, B. infantis M-63 and B. longum BB-536. Replenishing the internal microflora with these specific strains, provides three clinically evidenced benefits to children’s health;

  • Digestive Health
  • Supports healthy bowel function
  • Reduces tummy upsets and infant colic
  • Immune Function
  • Reduces the incidence of upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs)
  • Allergies
  • Protects against allergies such as eczema
