There is such a thing as good bacteria.
Not all bacteria is bad. Your body needs certain bacteria to stay healthy. Bacteria helps aid in digestion, absorbing nutrients, and battling other germs that make you sick. Probiotics contain live, good bacteria naturally found in your body. People use probiotics to regulate their digestive systems.
Our gut harbors billions of bacteria, and the good bacteria is believed to overwhelm the unhealthy ones and keep us healthy. Probiotics add another layer of good microorganisms to the already existing good ones. Although probiotics are not a digestive cure-all, they can be highly beneficial to kids and adults. I hadn’t ever considered probiotics for my children until now.
I know I’m not the only mom concerned about my children’s bathroom habits. I keep mental track of their daily bowel movements and offer a balanced diet to keep things moving. It’s doesn’t always come without its fair share of challenges, but that’s parenthood. Right?
My daughter is obsessed with cheese. When we were potty-training, she would choose a cheese stick over a sugary popsicle as her reward. Too much cheese can present some issues, particularly constipation. This was a huge problem for us!
I didn’t want to deny my daughter her reward, but I also didn’t want her uncomfortable. Thankfully, Kyo-Dophilus® Kids Probiotics have been a huge help in our home. This great-tasting vanilla chewable tablet is easy to take, but is also free of GMOs, preservatives, artificial colors, sodium, gluten, soy and dairy .
