Approximately 100 trillion microorganisms made up of more than 500 species already live in a normal, healthy colon with no two kids having the same mix of bacteria. But there are several reasons why the balance between “good” and “bad” bacteria can be thrown off and leave a child’s delicate gut flora causing uncomfortable symptoms of diarrhoea, bloating, pain, cramping, gas and even colic.

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that work by colonizing the small and large intestines and that inhibit the growth of harmful organisms. They have been found to stimulate the immune system and enhance the absorption of certain nutrients. Research shows that certain strains can be helpful for restoring a healthy gut flora after the use of antibiotics and in cases of diarrhoea.

Think about the infection-causing bacteria lurking in your child’s classroom, on the toys at preschool and the mats at “mommy and me” class. Every day kids are exposed to infectious diseases that infiltrate their immune and digestive systems. Even sugary treats and a diet low in fiber can let bad bacteria take over. Giving your child a regular dose of probiotics helps reduce the chances of gastrointestinal upset and can resolve bowel related pain and diarrhoea that can accompany the use of antibiotics.

CanPrev’s Pro-Biotik™ Powder is a family friendly probiotic powder that contains eight human strain probiotic species particular to the growing needs of toddlers, children and adolescents. Each species is represented at optimal levels to enhance the natural gut flora. Pro-Biotik™ Powder is completely shelf stable for ease of use anytime, anywhere – no refrigeration required. At the time of manufacture, it contains eight billion CFU (colony forming units – a measure of friendly bacteria activity), and three billion CFU at the expiry date.

Recommended Use

Pro-BiotikPowder provides probiotics that can promote a favorable gut flora.
