OptiBac Probiotics For Babies and Children (10 sachets)

£5.99

The types of natural bacteria that reside in an infant’s or child’s intestines are very different from the types found in adulthood. Bifidobacteriaum infantis and Bifidobacteriaum bifidum are the dominant and most important beneficial cultures found in healthy infants and children during their early years; this product contains both of these bacteria, in strains which have been tested to survive stomach acidity and bile salts. This supplement contains a third type of natural bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilu Rosell-52, which has been scientifically shown to survive stomach acidity and to reach the gut alive.  OptiBac probiotics  appreciate the importance of using various species and strains of natural bacteria – these three strains will target different areas of the gut as opposed to just one. Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), makes this product naturally high in fibre.

Having an imbalance of good and bad bacteria in the gut is thought, by some, to be related to digestion and immunity for infants and children, in particular in: formula-fed babies, babies and children on antibiotics, babies delivered by Caesarean section, children with regular colds and flu and babies & children with digestive problems such as colic, diarrhoea, constipation and lactose intolerance, as well as those with allergies and skin irritations such as eczema.

Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, including women expecting a Caesarean birth, can safely take this supplement.
