Do your kids fall sick regularly?

Posted on17 Apr 2020
One way to manage antibiotic associated diarrhoea while your child is on antibiotics is to give your child probiotics, which are live, active, good, beneficial bacteria. Research shows that some probiotics for children can reduce antibiotic-related diarrhea by up to 70 percent. For this reason, pediatricians often recommend that kids take probiotics whenever they’re on antibiotics.

There are trillions of other bacteria (aka beneficial bacteria or good bacteria) that live peacefully in our intestines and keep us healthy. Probiotics, many of which come from one of two groups of bacteria called Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium, are live microorganisms similar to the good-deed-doers we already have inside us. (Strains in Lactomin and Lactokids)

Breast-fed children and children born vaginally tend to have more of both groups of beneficial bacteria in their guts than formula-fed children and those delivered by C-section (breastfeeding fosters the growth of good bacteria, and babies who are delivered vaginally are exposed to a healthy dose of beneficial bacteria as they pass through the birth canal).

Outside of our bodies, you can find probiotics in supplement form. (ie. Lactomin or Lactokids).

What do probiotics for children do?
Since antibiotics kills both bad and good bacteria, you can think of probiotics as the reserved soldiers — the reinforcements sent in to bulk up the numbers of helpful bacteria and crowd out the bad bacteria. These good little soldiers also help strengthen the intestinal lining so that bad bacteria cannot multiply freely, and they may change the intestinal environment, making it more balanced and therefore less desirable for bad bacteria.

Can probiotics for children help with other conditions?
It is possible. Researchers are studying probiotics and their effect on a whole range of conditions, such as inflammatory bowel diseases, digestive tract ulcers, allergies and eczema, UTIs and improving the immune function.

Bottom line is this: There are many research done on children probiotics and there are specific strains that do help children with their digestive system and immune function. So investing in a good and effective probiotic for your child is critical to building a strong and good gut. As the saying goes "Prevention is always better than cure." So start early and build up a strong gut for your child! We live in a crowded and dense population, where viruses and bad bacteria thrive, building a gut defense in your child would be worth more than anything.

Lactomin and Lactokids are clinically proven and we had so many positive reviews from everyday cases of both lactomin and lactokids helping adults and children.
