Our products are for adults and children ages four years and older. The exception being ProBiota Infant (ages 6 months - 2 years).
Aside from the products intended for children, the serving size listed on our products is for a 150 pound adult. If you are wondering how much to give your child ages 4-17 years, you can get a ballpark idea with some simple math.
For example, if your child weighs 75 pounds, you can divide 150 by 75, which gives you 2. This means the serving size listed is double what your child would take, so they should take half the serving size.
Please keep in mind Seeking Health products are quite potent. We strongly recommend speaking with a qualified healthcare professional about serving size, especially if you have a younger child.
Because we are not licensed medical health professionals, the Seeking Health team cannot recommend a serving size of a product by age group. Dr Lynch, though a health professional himself, believes that serving size can depend on existing conditions, lifestyle, weight, activity level, diet and much more, making it difficult to determine.
Technically, the FDA considers adults to be individuals 4 years of age and older when it comes to nutrient requirements. Seeking Health recognizes that the dietary needs of a young child will be much different than that of a full-grown adult. Therefore, we have provided credible resources below from the National Institute of Health and Linus Pauling Institute that can help you determine the recommended dietary allowances and upper limits for nutrients by age, in conjunction with your trusted healthcare professional.
Note that this does NOT mean that the recommended dietary allowance is your serving size to take. RDIs are from ALL dietary sources, including food, and therefore your daily intake may be affected depending on food consumed. This is for reference only, and may help you and your health professional decide on a good serving size for your child.
