New Higher count formula - 25% more viable cells Formulated with a viable count of eight specially chosen bacterial strains especially beneficial for a childs healthy intestinal flora. A childs healthy microflora will closely resemble that of an adult but due to their smaller size, a child needs much smaller quantities of the same bacteria. This child specific formula: Guarantees five billion viable organisms of beneficial bacteria* that are absolutely essential for proper digestion, strong immune function and over-all health. (*at time of manufacture) Formulated to include the bifidobacteria B.bifidum and B.breve essential for the healthy development of a childs digestive tract. What are Microbiotics? Microbiotics are the beneficial, friendly bacteria that occur throughout the digestive tract. Poor eating habits, chlorinated drinking water, stress and disease and the use of antibiotics in food production as well as in medical treatments can wreak havoc in the gastrointestinal tract by destroying good bacteria and allowing undesirable bacteria to multiply.
