Research on combinations of probiotic strains including those in FloraBABY have also been shown to be of benefit for the common cold, constipation, diarrhea and eczema. Why should children use FloraBABY? FloraBABY can be taken daily as a preventative measure against invading bacteria and to ensure intestinal development and good health. Ideally, removing what causes the destruction of beneficial bacteria would be ideal (stress, antibiotics, etc.). However, there are times when these medications are required and stress is often inevitable. FloraBABY can be used to replace the beneficial bacteria that is lost during these times. Whenever a child needs to take antibiotics, FloraBABY should be taken for one month afterward to replenish the good bacteria.

    • Ultimate Flora Kids Probiotic is a blend of 9 probiotics (good bacteria) that is specifically formulated for the intestinal tract and colon of children.

Probiotics are friendly, beneficial bacteria. While there are hundreds of different strains of bacteria that live in the digestive tract, some strains are more prevalent in children including; Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium bifidum & Lactobacillus acidophilus. These bacteria (as well as others) are normal inhabitants of the large and small intestines and are an important part of a healthy digestive system. However, the type and amount of bacteria in each child is dependent on which bacteria they acquired as infants. The intestinal system of a fetus is actually sterile; with no bacteria present. It is during a vaginal delivery that the baby is introduced to numerous strains of bacteria. Vaginally born infants have over 1000 completely colonized intestinal bacteria species by the end of their first year. Cesarean born infants are not introduced to the same type or amount of bacteria as vaginal born infants. Research has shown those born via c-section have lower numbers of bifidobacteria & Bacteroides, as well as more C difficile (a pathogenic bacteria) than vaginally born infants. 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. What is Ultimate Flora Kids Probiotic?
