What is Swanson Probiotic Powder With FOS for Kids?
Nowadays probiotics are everywhere. You can get them from foods, drinks or supplements. It doesn’t really matter how you get them, it just matters that you do. For anyone who isn’t quite up to speed on probiotics, they are the ‘friendly bacteria’ that are naturally found in your intestines, urinary tract and even mouth.
As perturbing as it may sound, all of us are made up of billions of these microscopic bacteria and they form an integral part of our digestive systems. So much that by the time we reach adulthood, they actually make up a substantial percentage of our body weight.
Without these ‘good bacteria’ your body’s natural flora (the ecosystem that lives on and helps to control our intestines) suffer and can be overrun by ‘bad bacteria’. The results can vary from stomach pains to diarrhea and even more serious conditions like IBS.
Because your children are just as susceptible to digestion problems (if not moreso), Swanson Probiotic Powder With FOS for Kids offers three of the most vital probiotics to protect and nurture your child’s intestines.
- Lactobacillus acidophilus
- Bifidobacterium lactis
What is Swanson Probiotic Powder With FOS for Kids used for?
Probiotics for children are actually more common than you think. Popular products include probiotically charged infant formulas, powdered probiotics to add to milk and yoghurts that already contain probiotics.
The only problem is that for some parents, the worry becomes ‘just how much should I be giving my child? Naturally, a child’s delicate gastrointestinal system need to be handled carefully. So how much is too much?
Swanson Probiotic Powder With FOS for Kids offers you a way to control the types and amounts of probiotics your kids are ingesting. And with reports already stating that probiotics can be used to treat and even prevent some illnesses in children, it’s little wonder that you’d want to.
- Keep harmful bacteria in check – The probiotic bacteria that already exist in your children’s gut work by fighting any harmful germs that may enter the intestines. This probiotic formula works by supplementing that process to combat intestinal inflammatory illnesses.
