Probiotics:
The Good Bacteria

When there’s bad bacteria upsetting your child’s digestive system, who can you turn to? Probiotics, of course!

When bad bacteria are increasing in number and causing imbalance in our gut, we call it dysbiosis. And it is a time when it becomes very important to take probiotics to restore correct balance in your child’s stomach.

What are probiotics and why do we need it?

Probiotics are live microorganisms that are good for humans because they provide certain health benefits.

The use of probiotics is essential when the intestinal flora is out of balance. It can help regain that flora balance by fighting bad bacteria and other harmful microorganisms.

Where should you store probiotics?

Take note! Some probiotics need to be stored in the refrigerator, while some do not.

However, it is always best to check the label for storage instruction.

Probiotics that do not need to be stored in the refrigerator can be used during travel or on holiday

without special storage requirements. Because they are heat resistant, they can be given to children

by mixing them into their favorite hot drinks.
