Are Probiotics Helpful for Kids?

In a word: Yes.

One of my preferred methods of delivering probiotics is Good Belly probiotic juice drink, and Parents Magazine concurs.

Yes, yes, yes.

Probiotics can help with many, many issues for kids as well as adults, and should be de rigueur for everyone after completing a round of antibiotics, for starters.

Probiotics, in case you don’t know, are the “good” bacteria that live in our guts and help us digest our food. Each person, indeed, each mammal, is host to a unique colony of micro-bacteria that begins to develop in the womb and continues to populate throughout your life as you live and eat. Each person’s microbial biome is a unique as a fingerprint.

Antibiotics can wipe out entire colonies of good bacteria along with the bad, and the good bugs must be replenished through ingestion. Sickness, fever, viral infections, acidosis (when the body is too acidic), food poisoning, parasites, and other issues can also cause a deficiency of good bacteria in the gut, leading to incomplete digestion.

Incomplete or inefficient digestion can play a role in everything from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and Crohn’s disease to eczema, fatigue, constipation, or headaches in children and adults. Studies have shown that probiotics can help by improving digestion.

At least 80% of our health status is directly related to the health of our digestive tract. Probiotics and plant-based digestive enzymes can help get yours back on track. An Enzyme Urinalysis is a scientific analysis of your urine to see what is happening –or not happening– in your digestive system.

  1. Yes, some things never chgnae. And that’s good for so many reasons .wonderful friends, humor, being especially able to laugh at yourself, the ever rising human spirit, healthy gyno exams that are now over for another year, being able to produce almost any good piece of work from 5-8 am, hearing someone tell you you are worth it!, cats to hug, and the need to exercise more than you always do.
