OptiBac Probiotics 'For babies & children'
From birth onwards, 'For babies & children' (For your child's health) from OptiBac Probiotics can be given as a natural supplement.
Having an imbalance of good and bad bacteria in the gut is thought to cause issues in digestion and immunity for infans and children, in particular in:
- Formula-fed babies
- Babies, infants & children during and after antibiotics
- Infants delivered by Caesarean section
- Premature infants
- Babies and children with digestive problems such as colic, diarrhoea, constipation and lactose intolerance
- Babies & children with allergies and skin irritations such as eczema
Children given antibiotics may develop an imbalance of good and bad bacteria in the intestines, as antibiotics can deplete normal levels of good bacteria. An imbalance in the gut is thought by many to manifest in the form of allergies and digestive problems in children.
OptiBac Probiotics 'For babies & children' (For your child's health) is a natural supplement, and is completely free from sugars, artificial flavours & colourings which can be found in other children's supplements containing live cultures.
At OptiBac Probiotics we specialise entirely in live cultures, and only use strains of the highest quality, with extensive research behind them.
'For babies & children' (For your child's health) can easily be mixed with your child's favourite cold foods or beverages. This OptiBac Probiotics supplement can be taken with formula milk when it is at room temperature, but not when warmed (as heat reduces the viability of natural bacteria.)
Take as following, or as professionally directed:
- Infants from birth to 12 months: one sachet per day.
- Children 12 months and above: one to two sachets per day, as desired.
- Pregnant and nursing mothers: one sachet per day.
- Adults & children should ideally drink plenty of water during a course of live cultures.
- Best taken with a meal, preferably with breakfast.
- OptiBac Probiotics will not cause dependency, and can safely be taken on an ongoing basis.
It is not recommended to give live cultures to patients who: are severely immunosuppressed, have pancreatitis, are in the Intensive Care Unit, have blood in the stool, have central venous catheters; or to post-surgical patients with open wounds, or infants with short bowel syndrome; unless under a doctor's care.
Fructooligosaccharides (FOS); Filler: potato starch; Live probiotic cultures (Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52, Bifidobacterium infantis Rosell-33, Bifidobacterium bifidum Rosell-71).
Each sachet guarantees 3 billion micro-organisms + 0.75g prebiotic fibres.
