Renew Life Ultimate Flora Kids Probiotic
Ultimate Flora Kids Probiotic is a blend of 9 probiotics (good bacteria) that is specifically formulated for the intestinal tract and colon of children. Ultimate Flora Kids Probiotic is a chewable tablet with berry flavour from real berries and fruit for a taste that children will love.
Research has also shown that breastfed infants initially establish a different bacterial composition than formula fed infants. The prebiotic oligosaccharide (found in breast milk) is what feeds healthy intestinal bacteria. By providing gut bacteria with the food they require, they are able to colonize. Exclusively formula-fed infants are more often colonized with E coli, C difficile, Bacteroides, and lactobacilli, compared with breastfed infants who have higher counts of bifidobacteria.
Children born via C-section and those who have not been breast fed are not the only children who can have an imbalance of gut bacteria. Probiotics can also be impaired through stress, illness, antibiotics treatment, or changes to the diet. Thankfully they can also be brought back into balance through the introduction of the right balance of supplemental probiotics.
Research shows that taking probiotics can help to improve gastrointestinal function, respiratory and allergy response, as well as help to counter the negative effects of antibiotic use.
Further, these beneficial bacteria help the body to
- produce vitamins
- absorb nutrients
- control overgrowth of bad bacteria and fungus.
