ProBiota Infant provides 5 billion organisms per 1 scoop (approximately 0.5 grams) to support gastrointestinal and immune system health, providing a blend of probiotic species that may be particularly well-suited for children up to the age of 2. As young children have sensitive dietary needs, we recommend consulting with a qualified healthcare professional to determine whether this product is suitable for your child. ProBiota Infant is specially formulated to support healthy digestion and absorption of nutrients in breastmilk, formula, or other foods. Developing a healthy balance of probiotic bacteria in the digestive tract is an important part of early development. Healthy intestinal microorganisms may support a lifetime of digestive health.*
This blend of probiotics may help support development of a healthy intestinal microflora and immune system. Beneficial strains of bacteria may support immune health by competing with unwanted or harmful microbes for space and nutrients in the intestinal tract. These bacteria may also produce certain enzymes and fermentation products that help the body’s natural resistance to potentially harmful bacteria, yeasts, and viruses(1). Five Bifidobacterium species normally predominant in an infant’s gastrointestinal tract are also included to help support the body’s healthy defenses against intestinal invaders and normal digestion of dietary proteins and complex carbohydrates. Probiotic species included in this formula may also help support healthy skin.*
To be effective, the living organisms in probiotic supplements must survive traveling through the upper digestive tract and stomach acids on the way to the small intestine and colon. ProBiota Infant uses probiotic species that are selected for their ability to survive this journey through the digestive system. This formula also contains inulin, a natural prebiotic fiber from chicory, which may help nourish and support bacterial colonization within the GI tract.*
