Probiotics for Babies

FORMULATED FOR USE FROM BIRTH AND DURING THE FIRST YEARS OF LIFE

Babies can take probiotics in the form of powder to aid in the development of their intestinal and immune health. Likewise, if they are suffering from colic, it has been shown to reduce crying in breastfed babies. It is now recognized that establishing a robust and balanced microbiome (gut bacteria) in the first year of life is vital to support health and founding this microflora as soon after birth as possible is critical in supporting the development of healthy immune and digestive function. This microflora is influenced during pregnancy, childbirth and breast-feeding, but modern living conditions, which are more sterile and bacteria free, may inhibit or slow down the natural development of the normal flora. Therefore, be useful to support this process in newborn babies. If you would like to find out more please do not hesitate to contact ProVen Probiotics and speak to our resident in-house nutritionist.
