Children's Probiotic Powder
Your children should have healthy bacteria lining their gut. This bacteria is essential for normal immune function, proper nutrient absorption and optimal digestion.
Antibiotics and Your Child’s Gut
As your children grow up they are given antibiotics for the treatment of earaches, sore throats and other infections but unfortunately the antibiotic ends up wiping out their normal, healthy bacterial lining that plays a significant role in their health. Without this essential bacteria present in their gut, they are prone to chronic infections, nutrient deficiencies and faulty digestion. It can take up to six months to rebuild the bacterial lining after just one round of antibiotics It is essential to supplement with probiotics after any course of antibiotics.
Poor Diet and Your Child’s Health
Unfortunately, our children are exposed to high sugar diets along with low fiber intake and these two factors sabotage their body’s ability to rebuild the gut flora and they often end up with rampant intestinal yeast (Candida) infections. This breakdown of the gut is commonly associated to autoimmune conditions such as food allergies, asthma and eczema, in addition to, cognitive issues and other chronic inflammatory disorders. Regardless of antibiotic use, lifestyle and dietary habits alone are a common way your child will damage their normal bacteria lining. Excessive sugar consumption will promote harmful bacteria and fungus to compete with the normal, healthy bacteria that grow in your gut. If your child’s diet is less than optimal, they should supplement with a probiotic.
