ProBiota Infant by Seeking Health provides 10+ billion organisms per quarter-teaspoon 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 probiotic organisms may help support the 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. Lactobacillus bacteria are thought to be essential for the healthy development of the infant immune system. These bacteria may also produce certain enzymes and fermentation products that help the body resist potentially harmful bacteria, yeasts and viruses. Five Bifidobacterium species normally predominant in an infant's gastrointestinal tract are also included to help support the body's healthy defences 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 travelling 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 fibre from chicory, which may help nourish and support bacterial colonization within the GI tract.*
An infant's gastrointestinal tract is not fully mature and may not be able to process the D(-) isomer of lactic acid produced by certain Lactobacillus species often found in adult probiotic formulas. ProBiota Infant contains only those species that solely or primarily produce the L(+) lactic acid form that can be metabolized by healthy infants.*
