This product has been specially designed for the healthy development of the infant intestinal microbiota and immune system/function. It contains a combination of four strains – Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei together with Bifidobacterium lactis (formerly known as B. infantis) and Bifidobacterium bifidum at a dose of 2 billion organisms per gram of powder supplement.
This symbiotic combination of appropriate healthy bacteria is researched and formulated for the use of children between the ages of 1-14 years.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is one of the most widely used probiotic strains and is a natural inhabitant of the human gastrointestinal (GI) tract and reproductive mucosa.
Lactobacillus casei is a strain of lactic acid bacteria commonly used for fermentation processes and is a natural inhabitant in the mouth and human gastrointestinal tract.
Bifidobacterium lactis (infantis) has been found to inhibit adhesion of gastrointestinal pathogens and helps to boost the immune system.
Bifidobacterium bifidum is the predominant bacteria found colonising the large intestine. As a producer of lactic acid and acetic acid it can help to reduce the colonisation of opportunistic pathogenic organisms and has been shown to have a role in immuno-regulation.
Inulin (prebiotic) – inulin acts as a prebiotic (promotes the proliferation of good bacteria) and when brought together with the probiotic species shown above, creates what is known as a ‘synbiotic’ formula.
Digestive support e.g. childhood diarrhoea, dyspepsia, dysbiosis. Immune / allergy conditions. Microbial infection. Eczema and atopic conditions may be benefit from improved gut flora balance. Adjunct to antibiotic use or for post-antibiotic use.
