Probiotics for kids

Why Probiotics for Kids are Important

Back to school is upon us, which typically means soon kids will be getting sick, going to class, and spreading germs all around their classrooms.  This vicious cycle wreaks havoc on tiny immune systems and it often takes weeks—sometimes even longer to recover.

One important step parents can take to help their kids feel better is to make sure they are taking a probiotic when they’re on an antibiotic. Antibiotics typically wipe out both good and bad bacteria in the gut, and a probiotic like Florajen Kids will help to restore the gut to a healthy microbiome once again.

Florajen Kids is a children’s probiotic that can be beneficial to tiny bellies even if they aren’t on antibiotics. Natural bacteria in children’s intestines help to digest food, destroy disease-causing microorganisms, produce necessary vitamins, contribute to immune function, and more. If children are unable to acquire the typical harmony of microbial flora at birth or through breastfeeding, or if antibiotics disrupt proportions, supplementation of good flora can help establish and maintain a healthy gut.

Florajen Kids is a refrigerated probiotic that can be found behind the counter with the pharmacist. The microorganisms (also referred to as strains, cultures, or cells) in Florajen Kids consist of the same “good bacteria” that occur naturally in healthy people.

Many off-the-shelf, unrefrigerated probiotics fall short in providing the number of live cells experts say are necessary to help the natural “good” bacteria in your body do their jobs. Florajen is a non-prescription probiotic brand that maintains continuous refrigeration from manufacture to purchase. But, it’s still easy to find – just ask your pharmacist or shop now.

Florajen Kids helps ease the unpleasant side effects of antibiotics, restores the natural balance of good bacteria, is specifically formulated for children, supports kids’ immune health and helps maintain regularity in the digestive system. Add this children’s probiotic to the mix so that when your child goes back-to-school this fall, you can feel confident in their overall health and well-being.
