Everyone is susceptible to imbalances in their intestinal microflora – even young children. The delicate balance can be altered by antibiotics, occasional illness, or unbalanced eating habits, potentially leading to nutrient loss and digestive disturbances. Parents can mitigate such problems by helping children maintain a healthy intestinal flora with a quality probiotic. Big Friends Powder Multiprobiotic contains seven species of bacteria that reflect the natural intestinal flora of healthy children. It provides live microorganisms that temporarily modify gut flora to maintain digestive health and support immature gastrointestinal systems.
Each gram, or teaspoon, of Powder Multiprobiotic is guaranteed to deliver at least 3 billion active cells upon expiry. It is made from a synergistic mix of resident and transient probiotic strains, with over half composed of bifidobacteria because it is the dominant family of good bacteria in children. This includes Bifidobacterium infantis, found specifically in human intestinal flora.
Powder Multiprobiotic is for children aged one and up, making the unflavoured powdered format convenient for mixing in their favourite drinks or foods, such as cereal, yogurt, or fruit.
