For your child's health.
At birth, infancy and childhood the types of friendly bacteria that naturally live in the intestines are very different from the types found in adulthood and old age. Bifidobacterium infantis and Bifidobacterium bifidum in ProbioStart are the dominant and most important beneficial cultures found in healthy infants and children during the early years and have unique benefits in supporting digestion, immunity and resistance to infection.
In cases of vaginal birth, a newborn swallows what will become its first healthy intestinal microflora as it passes through the mother's birth canal. This is nature's way for mothers to inoculate their babies and provide them with a foundation of healthy bacteria for future health. Caesarian babies and preterm babies unfortunately do not receive the full benefits of these healthy material bacteria. Following birth, development of the infant's microflora is influenced by diet (breast milk formula), environment, and medication such as antibiotics.
Infants 6-12 months: One sachet daily. Children 12 months and above: One to two sachets per day. Expectant and nursing mothers: One sachet per day.
