Probiotics for Children: Children's Acidophilus Probiotic

What are Children’s Probiotic

In the last decade, many people have begun to realize the incredible importance of good children's probiotic and a balanced gut biome. These beneficial gut bacteria, known as probiotics, control so many aspects of a child’s wellbeing.

Proper food digestion and nutrient absorption is key during the growth and development of children’s bodies.

Probiotics for Children

Children slowly develop a gut bacteria biome in the womb and early childhood. Babies born through vaginal delivery are more likely to have more beneficial bacteria.

The same applies for babies who are breastfed from a healthy mother, since probiotics can be found in natural breast milk.

But are probiotic supplements safe for kids? Although more studies are needed, the general consensus is that they are safe as long as you choose a children’s formulated supplement.

The National Health Interview Survey of 2012 found that the 3rd most used natural products by children were probiotic supplements (1).

There are many benefits children can gain from probiotic supplements. Most importantly, probiotic supplements and a healthy biome will promote optimal digestion and nutrient absorption which are critical for proper development, especially at younger ages.

Probiotics can also help bolster immune system and protect from various diseases and conditions, while reducing constipation and diarrhea which can be common during the potty-training phase.

There are other anecdotal and testimonial evidence that support children’s use of probiotics, but the benefits typically depend on the strain. This is important to keep in mind when choosing a healthy children’s supplement.

Its always recommended that you consult with your children’s pediatrician or healthcare professional before probiotic supplement use.

Children's Probiotic Benefits

Good probiotic levels can help regulate a balanced microbiome. The benefits of probiotics are quite vast and can be classified under proper bodily function, treatment of various conditions, and prevention of malnutrition and disease.

Probiotic benefits include optimal brain function, reduction of LDL (bad) cholesterol, restoration of a healthy gut, immune system boost, and healthy skin.

Probiotics are also often used to treat minor conditions such as systemic inflammation, digestive issues including IBS, chronic diarrhea, depression and anxiety, and UTI and vaginal infections.

It is also important to note the gut-brain connection. The brain and gut closely interact, which means that an unhealthy, unbalanced gut biome can lead to poor cognitive function and even depression and anxiety.

Biome imbalance with too much harmful bacteria often leads ‘brain fog’ which is a mental condition that prevents strong clarity, focus, and memory.  

Probiotic Bacteria Deficiency

An imbalance of gut bacteria can cause some serious life altering issues. This has been intuitively understood by humans for ages, with Hippocrates saying that “all disease begins in the gut” over two thousand years ago.

The negative effects of low probiotics count or an overall unbalanced gut biome can manifest in many ways, considering the many different functions gut bacteria perform.

The most common symptoms include upset stomach, GI disease, digestive issues, weight changes, and constant fatigue. Since probiotics also help us absorb nutrients from food, an unhealthy gut biome can cause malnutrition which can also lead to severe issues and disease.
