Our high-potency, 12-strain formula in convenient powder form helps establish and maintain healthy digestion and immune-system functions from infancy through adolescence.
Children’s Probiotic contains 10 billion colony-forming units consisting of 12 scientifically proven probiotic strains. These select species work at specific sites throughout the entire intestinal tract. This establishes favourable conditions for the dominance of healthy microflora critical for maximum nutrient assimilation and superior immune-system function. Our ultraconcentrated formula also strengthens resistance to childhood diarrhea. The benefits of our diverse formula include establishing the attachment of probiotics within the mucosal lining of both the small and large intestines to help maintain or rebuild a “friendly” intestinal flora.
Children’s Probiotic comes with a convenient scoop for ease of dosage. It can be added to juices or easily incorporated into foods such as yoghurt, smoothies, and apple sauce, without changing taste or texture.
