robiotic that contributes to a natural healthy gut flora.
Babies are born with an intestinal tract that is completely sterile. Soon after birth, bacteria begin to colonize the entire gastrointestinal (GI) system and form the unique and complex blend of both “good” and “bad” bacteria that are so critical to our health. Unfortunately, this bacterial balance is easily upset, particularly in babies and young children because of how they explore their world. For example, dirty fingers in the mouth, illness, or a course of antibiotics can introduce disease- causing bacteria. This causes the probiotic or healthy bacteria in the intestine to be overwhelmed which can quickly lead to an excess of harmful bacteria. Such an imbalance leads to stomach upset, including diarrhea, and begins a cycle of poor digestion and reduced immune function. A probiotic supplement is proven safe even in vulnerable infants and is a simple and effective way to help prevent GI problems, repair damage, and restore gastrointestinal health in children of all ages.
