At least 70% of the immune system is in the digestive tract, but a diet high in sugar and low in fiber may deplete the amount of good bacteria in your child’s gut, which in turn may affect digestion and immune health.
Probiotic supplements for kids are a safe and gentle way to help replenish the balance of good bacteria in the digestive tract and support the developing immune system.* Below are three key benefits of adding a daily probiotic to your child’s diet:
- Support immune function* Added beneficial bacteria support a healthy digestive balance and help teach the immune system to respond appropriately to outside challenges.*
- Support bowl health* Regular elimination needs a healthy balance of good bacteria in the gut. Daily probiotics have been shown to help support that balance, which in turn promotes regularity and helps prevent the occasional upset tummy.*
- Promote healthy digestion* In addition to producing vitamins—including important B vitamins—probiotics produce digestive enzymes and support regular, balanced digestion.*
