5 billion CFUs in each delicious, chewable tablet. USDA Organic, Non-GMO, and designed to provide kids with daily digestive & immune system support.
The latest American Family Physician review found that probiotics might help treat inflammatory bowel disease and reduce the duration of diarrhea caused by gastroenteritis. In particular, the probiotic L. acidophilus appears to help children with acute diarrhea to recover more quickly. More and more studies are being done referencing probiotics for children, such as providing a helpful alternative to simethicone (a popular ingredient in gas and colic drops) for helping to relieve uncomfortable symptoms in babies with colic. According to the 2012 National Health Interview, probiotics are the 3rd most popular natural product used by children. Finally, some research suggests that probiotics may reduce the development of eczema in children. Our Kids Comfort Organic 5 Billion is a Certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO, delicious, chewable probiotic, with no added sugars or sweeteners, designed to build a healthy microbiome and support children’s digestive and immune health.
40% of the Worlds Population Suffers from Digestive Health Issues and more than 50% of these people have a moderate to severe impact on their overall health and mental well-being.
70-80% of the body’s immune cells are located within the gastrointestinal tract. Providing clinically documented probiotic bacteria may modulate immune responses and support the body’s natural defense.
No nutrient is more closely associated with Immune Health than Probiotics, other than Vitamin D.
üLifesource Vitamins probiotics feature Bio-Enhanced Acid Resistant Strains (B.E.A.R.S) that are cultivated to be gastric resistant and bile tolerant which eliminates the need for enteric coating.
üEach strain is carefully selected for efficacy using 50 factors, such as digestibility, acid tolerance, antibiotic sensitivity, and pathogen inhibition.
üFrom raw material handling, climate, and humidity-controlled manufacturing, and multi-stage quality control, you can trust the best-in-class manufacturing of Lifesource Vitamins to provide the very best probiotics for you and your family.
üAll of our Probiotics are manufactured to be shelf-stable without the need for refrigeration. (Upon opening them, we would like you to refrigerate them if possible, but not mandatory)
We Offer Unmatched Stable Probiotic Strains
We use only highly stable probiotic strains, each exposed to a series of harsh environments to developed heat, moisture, pressure, acidity, alkalinity, and antibiotic resistance. This resistance is critical in ensuring that probiotics survive long enough to fulfill their purpose.
Highly Specialized Low Moisture Materials
We use industry-leading, low moisture excipients, and capsules, limiting the amount of moisture trapped in the final packaging. The moisture level in the package is also controlled by a molecular sieve during its time on the shelf. Your products are protected by a highly controlled refrigeration system to help significantly extend the shelf stability of your probiotics.
Extremely Low Moisture Manufacturing Process
Our state-of-the-art climate control system, in-process moisture testing, and strict SOPs to control the entire ecosystem ensure that relative humidity and moisture are kept to a minimum and are among the lowest in the industry.
Packaging – Our Insulated Double Wall Bottles have an active inner core of moisture-absorbing polymers that:
üInsulate the Probiotic
üProtection remains active for the life of the product even after the bottle is opened.
üCapsules see virtually no moisture due to the moisture being trapped before entering the head space, due to built-in desiccant wall in our bottles.
What are probiotics?
Probiotics are edible products containing helpful or “friendly” bacteria (usually Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium) that normally inhabit the human digestive tract.
Why are probiotics necessary?
Probiotics are used to increase the number of beneficial bacteria in your digestive tract, promoting an environment for good bacteria to flourish.
- Restore normal microflora balance, especially during the use of antibiotics
- Aids & assists in your digestion
- Helps Facilitate the production of vitamins and metabolites
- Support our immune system and its overall functionality
What are the indications that probiotic supplementation may be beneficial or even necessary?
In addition to digestive health, there are studies and growing evidence that show that balancing levels of normal flora through probiotic supplementation has numerous other health benefits.
· Increased Energy
· Cognitive function and performance
· Overall Skin health
· Liver health & functionality
· Mood stability and stress response
· Cardiovascular function
· Immune strengthening & function
· Metabolic function
Other Benefits of Probiotic Supplementation:
The positive effect of probiotics and prebiotics on mood.
Research shows taking probiotics may be helpful in managing symptoms associated with mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, stress, and memory, among others.
The probiotic strains Lactobacillus Helveticas and Bifidobacterium Longum has been shown to benefit people suffering from anxiety and depression.
According to the Nutrition Business Journal (NBJ) there has been an 85% increase in Google searches of ‘probiotics for stress’. (American Psychological Association (2020). Stress in America™ 2020: A National Mental Health Crisis)
Healthy Skin - Increasingly, scientific publications indicate probiotic bacteria and especially lactobacilli can provide benefits for the skin.2 Specifically, lactobacillus paracasei demonstrates anti-inflammatory properties in skin models.
Acne - Small studies from Italy, Russia, and Korea have found that probiotics from food or supplements used in conjunction with standard acne treatments may increase the rate of acne clearance, and also helps patients better tolerate acne treatment with antibiotics.
Eczema - Finnish researchers looked at pregnant women who took probiotic supplements (containing Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG) found the probiotics reduced the odds of eczema in babies.
Rosacea - Probiotics may help control rosacea flare-ups and symptoms.
Anti-aging - Probiotics may help to build collagen, the main protein in skin that affects its texture and tone. Increased numbers of good bacteria may also help to hydrate aging skin, reduce sun damage, and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Stress Support - As an important type of “spiritual microbes,” probiotics show good prospects in relieving stress and preventing stress-related health problems. Scientists have discovered probiotics can reduce stress and improve mental function and memory, and potentially reduce mild forms of anxiety and stress. Data is also showing both probiotics and prebiotic-rich foods have been effective to help reduce cortisol levels.
Mood - A healthy gut is important for optimal production of serotonin, the happiness hormone, of which about 95% is produced in the gut.
Energy - Healthy gut bacteria create B vitamins, which are essential for the production of ATP (cellular energy). Bacteria communicate with other cells in charge of blood sugar regulation. If gut bacteria are out of balance, blood sugar levels can crash more easily, contributing to a drop in energy.
Children - While there is solid evidence that probiotics may be helpful in reducing both the severity and frequency of acute respiratory infection in anyone, children (0-15) seem to experience the greatest benefit. 21,22 Whether it is for immune, post-antibiotic protection/recovery, general digestive health or recommendation from the child’s health care provider, probiotics are the 3rd most chosen natural product by American parents for the well-being of their kids.
Probiotics, Helping to promote a normal allergic response.*
By helping to protect the membrane lining of your intestinal wall, they help stop undigested food, bacteria, and metabolic wastes from escaping into your bloodstream.
Here are some major reasons why your gut/microbes are out of sync:
- Antibiotics: Almost all antibiotics destroy healthy gut microflora.
- Certain Painkillers
- Sugar / Fructose
- Tap Water - Fluoride / Chlorinated
- Heartburn Prescriptions
Some Symptoms of Lacking Probiotics: When our microflora becomes imbalanced, an incredible variety of symptoms can and often do result. Here is just a small list of issues reported that relate to the lack of probiotics in our body.
- Abdominal pain
- Allergies – ALL
- Autoimmune Diseases – ALL
- Bloating – Gas
- CFS – Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Cold Sores
- Ear Infections – Chronic
- Food Allergies – Gluten Intolerance – Sugar Sensitivity

- Lactose Issues
- Prostate Inflammation
- Sinusitis - Chronic
- Upper Respiratory Infections – Chronic
- UTI – Chronic

Our Gut, Brain, and Primary Immune Defenses are all Connected. Our gut is quite literally your second brain, as it originates from the same type of tissue as your brain! During fetal development, one part turns into your central nervous system, while the other develops into your enteric nervous system. These two systems are connected via the vagus nerve, the tenth cranial nerve that runs from your brain stem down to your abdomen. Hence your gut and your brain work in tandem, each influencing the one another.*
Benefits of Probiotics: Should you take a daily dose of bacteria?
The idea of tossing down a few billion bacteria a day for your health might seem—literally and figuratively—hard to swallow. But the May issue of Harvard Women’s Health Watch reports that a growing body of scientific evidence suggests that you can treat and prevent some illnesses with supplements containing certain kinds of health-promoting bacteria, called probiotics (meaning “for life”). An estimated 100 trillion microorganisms inhabit every normal, healthy bowel, where they keep pathogens (harmful microorganisms) in check, aid digestion and nutrient absorption, and contribute to immune function. If these gut-dwelling bacteria become depleted—usually because of disease, stress, poor diet, or medications like antibiotics—health problems can result. According to Harvard Women’s Health Watch, probiotic therapy has been best studied for the treatment of diarrhea. It may also help people with Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and other gastrointestinal problems.
