Diamond Nutritionals’ Children’s Probiotic Formula is a probiotic supplement designed for children.
Probiotic is the term given to a group of healthy bacteria primarily used to support the gastrointestinal tract, although the uses are numerous. There are hundreds of different types of strains of probiotic bacteria. The two most commonly used strains in dietary supplements and foods are Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium.
Probiotic bacteria help to keep the balance of healthy microflora in our gastrointestinal tracts. When this balance becomes off kilter and overrun with bad bacteria such as E.coli, gastrointestinal disturbances may occur and our immune systems may become weakened. Probiotic bacteria help to restore the beneficial bacteria in the gut after such disturbances occur.
Many Americans, including our children, eat diets that are high in sugars and refined carbohydrates. These sugars can also have an effect on the microflora in our gut, causing them to be overrun with more bad bacteria. Taking a probiotic supplement helps to restore balance to the microflora.
Diamond Nutritionals’ Children’s Probiotic Formula also contains Saccharomyces boulardii, a potentiator for good microflora. This action enables a more effective probiotic presence, encouraging a healthy environment for vitamin uptake and immune support.
Probiotic bacteria are becoming more and more recognized as a go to aid in digestive health. Supplementing our diets with a high dose efficacious probiotic supplement will help bring balance to our gastrointestinal flora.
