When it comes to probiotics, viability is critical to flood the lower GI tract with healthy bacteria. When it comes to children, the method of delivery and taste is vital! With the Complete Children’s Chewable Probiotic, both of these factors have been met … and then some! The majority of probiotics are grown on a dairy-based medium and can be aggravating to little tummies with food sensitivities. Our formulation is hypoallergenic and is packed with 25 billion CFU of 8 heavily researched strains of beneficial bacteria that …
• help facilitate intestinal motility,
• support secretion of digestive enzymes,
• support cytokine balance in the gut,
• augment antibody production for a healthy immune response,
• supports healthy leukocyte phagocytic activity (a key factor in a healthy immune system)
• supports both innate and acquired immunity
We’ve got the good stuff without the bad stuff … no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. This product is one of the leading formulations used by functional medicine practitioners around the country! With the high potency and specialized formulation that survives stomach acid and delivers more viable bacteria into the lower gut than most “leading” probiotics on the market, you can’t go wrong investing 30 to 70 cents a day (depending on how you dose it) for those little bellies!
Now let’s break down dosing … my kids all use this probiotic and here’s how I dose them. Clara is about 20 months and I typically give her ¼ – ½ tablet depending on what’s going on. If it’s sick season at school or she starts to get a runny nose, I give her a higher dose of a ½ tablet. My 4 and 6 year old run on the same pattern of a higher dose during times of sickness and exposure at school but I trend them between ½ tablet to a full tablet. I always recommend to patients first starting out to start at a lower dose and gradually add more if necessary. Generally, start at ¼ to ½ tablet depending on the health and sensitivity of the person taking it. After a week, you can increase and see if there is a noticeable improvement or change. Using a ¼ to ½ tablet a bottle of 60 will last a long time, depending on how many kids are using the probiotic.
