LifeSource Vitamins Kid's & Teen's Dophilus Extra Strength is a combination of probiotic bacterial strains designed to support gastrointestinal health and immune system function. In addition, healthy intestinal flora also helps to create a
favorable environment for the absorption of nutrients. FOS is included in
this product to assist healthy growth of acidophilus and bifidus organisms.
Kids Dophilus can be used by both adults and children. Because it is
sweetened with Xylitol, it won't harm teeth and it tastes great.*
What do they do?
Probiotics promote good digestion, facilitate the absorption of nutrients,
boost the immune system and help prevent an overgrowth of more harmful
organisms in the digestive tract.
You may want to know why, if these are naturally present in the digestive
system - "Do I need to give them to my child?"
The digestive system is host to hundreds of different species of bacteria,
some of which are `good' and some of which are `bad'. A healthy system will
have a balance of the two. However, there are a number of factors that can
affect the levels of `good' bacteria, and when this happens non-beneficial
bacteria and yeast can flourish. There are also many conditions and
ailments that may benefit from regularly taking a probiotic - such as
lactose intolerance, acne, irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn's Disease.
When would I give my child a probiotic?
Probiotics can be taken as a daily supplement as they help build a healthy
digestive system by replenishing levels of `good' or `friendly' bacteria in
the gut. If your child has had a course of antibiotics, give them a regular
dose of probiotics over the following two weeks to replace the beneficial
Diarrhea flushes out the intestinal bacteria, including the `good' ones,
this can leave the body vulnerable to infections - so boost your child's
immune system by replenishing the `good' bacteria that have been lost.
Allergies, Thrush, colds & flu's are all signs that the immune system
is functioning below par. Topping up the levels of `good' bacteria in the
gut will help boost the body's immune function.
The topic of probiotics is the latest information in the news. Probiotics
are friendly bacteria found in foods and dietary supplements that can help
bring back the balance of good bacteria. The question arises can children
take probiotics. According to Dr. Holly Lucille, Naturopathic Physician,
the answer is "Absolutely, In fact the use of probiotics can be very
beneficial for your children. A healthy digestive system is very important
for a strong immune system in kids as well as in adults." So what are the
best sources of probiotics for children?
As parents, we scrutinize all health information for our kids. First, let's
get a medical side of probiotics for children and adults: According to the
World Health Organization, they're "live microorganisms, which when
administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host."
This healthy bacteria is found in fermented food products such as yogurt,
sour cream, sauerkraut, and buttermilk. Probiotics are also available as
supplements; these formulations can be identical to the organisms that
colonize the gut. The health benefits of probiotics are a natural fit to a
Many medical experts believe probiotics may increase the amount of
beneficial bacteria in people's intestinal tracts as well as aid digestion,
boost the body's natural defenses, and fight off harmful bacteria that can
cause health problems. Experts are conducting studies to determine if
probiotics can be used to prevent and treat all sorts of conditions, many
of them common in kids, including asthma, colds, colic, lactose
intolerance, and dental cavities. Dr. Michael Cabana, chief of general
pediatrics at UCSF Children's Hospital, says there's an abundance of
studies exploring probiotics' potential, but relative few studies in U.S.
children. In the 1990s, Dr. Cabana says, there were one or two published
probiotic studies a year, while in 2005, over 350 studies were published.
Always confirm with your primary medical professional if you are adding
children's probiotics to their daily regimen.
