Ther-Biotic® Children’s Chewable is a broad-spectrum, hypoallergenic probiotic supplement designed for children 2 years of age and older. The convenient, naturally flavored chewable tablets deliver potent amounts of 4 Lactobacillus and 4 Bifidobacterium species that benefit gastrointestinal and immune health in children.
Supports gastrointestinal health*
Digestive discomforts are common among children and include occasional constipation, loose stools, gas, bloating, and stomach upset. The 8 probiotic species in Ther-Biotic® Children’s Chewable work together to help facilitate intestinal motility, support healthy cytokine balance in the gut, and support secretion of digestive enzymes that break down food components. They also help favorably shift the balance of gut microbiota towards more beneficial species by directly competing for nutrients and adhesion sites, secreting substances such as organic acids, bacteriocins and hydrogen peroxide, and stimulating the body’s own healthy immune responses.
Supports normal maturation of a child’s immune system*
Normal maturation of the immune system is highly dependent upon development of a healthy intestinal microbiota. However, children’s immune systems are continuously challenged by their environment, allergens and irritants in foods, chemical toxins, and overuse of medications such as antibiotics that can easily disrupt the balance of the gut microbiota. The substantial amounts of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium in this formula support a normal microbiota as well as augment multiple aspects of immune function including antibody production and leukocyte phagocytic activity.
Ther-Biotic® Children’s Chewable supplies Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species critical for healthy development of a child’s immune system.* The specific probiotics included also off er benefit for normal immune system function by supporting both innate and acquired immunity, healthy cytokine balance, and gastrointestinal immune responsiveness.*
