This is what Ethical Nutrients tell us about Probiotics for little tummies...
In the past, children acquired good immune system function by rolling around in muddy puddles, or even eating from the floor! Today, with the majority of people using disinfectants and antibacterial soaps, our exposure to germs has decreased dramatically. This may be one of the reasons we are experiencing an increase in immune system disorders. 70% of our immune system is actually in our digestive system. We can help support our children's immune systems by improving the balance of good bacteria in their digestive system.
Why does bacterial balance matter?
The balance of good bacteria in the digestive system plays a vital role in the development of a child's immune system. It provides the stimulus for the immune system to mature into an efficient infection fighting network. Probiotic (good bacteria) supplementation can restore balance if our gut flora, becomes disturbed.
Many factors can contribute to an imbalance in gut flora. An imbalance is caused when there is more bad bacteria than good bacteria. Infants and children are being increasingly exposed to factors that can cause an imbalance which may increase the risk of infections and allergies.
The following factors increase the need for therapeutic probiotic supplementation in children:
* Caesarean birth.
* Formula feeding as opposed to breast feeding.
* If the mother had an imbalance of gut flora during gestation.
* Antibiotic therapy.
* Abnormal transit time, such as constipation and diarrhoea.
* A diet high in fat and low in fibre.
* A diet high in sugar and preservatives.
Looking for a probiotic for your children?
Inner Health for Kids is an exclusive high potency probiotic powder containing Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG®), Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM and Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07. Inner Health for Kids supports a normal healthy gastrointestinal system by promoting the growth of good bacteria, therefore increasing the numbers of good bacteria within the digestive system. If a child has been taking a course of antibiotics, Inner Health for Kids may assist in restoring the levels of friendly bacteria that may have been disrupted.
It may be now possible to reduce the risk of our children developing eczema!
Eczema, a chronic, superficial inflammation of the skin, is often seen in children with a family history of immune imbalances that cause hayfever, asthma or atopic dermatitis. Ethical Nutrients Eczema Shield, containing Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG®), helps to balance the immune system and may help to reduce the incidence of eczema and food allergies in infants and children.
Clinical trials have shown that when taken by mothers during pregnancy and breastfeeding, or directly by formula-fed infants, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG®) reduced the incidence of children developing eczema. LGG® also reduced the severity of eczema associated with cow's milk allergy, decreasing symptoms such as itching and sleeplessness.
Preventing little coughs and colds...
Inner Health Immune Booster for Kids contains a exclusive blend of Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM and Bifidobacerium lactis Bi-07, that may be used for the prevention of upper respiratory tract infections and may reduce the duration and severity of colds in children.
Results of a clinical trial indicate that, when taken daily, the good bacteria in Inner Health Immune Booster for Kids may:
* Reduce the frequency of symptoms of cold and flu such as runny noses and coughs.
