Mom Knows Best : A Daily Probiotic Keeps The Doctor Away

A Daily Probiotic Keeps The Doctor Away


  My boys have been taking probiotics for about nine months now. They very seldom have any digestive problems. My picky nine-year-old used to have stomach aches at least once a week and I think his daily probiotic has kept them away. I also noticed that both boys did not get any colds last winter. Research has shown that the good bacteria of probiotics help suppress the growth of potentially harmful bacteria to improve immune function and also enhances the protective barrier of the digestive tract. This research and what I have observed in my boy's health is enough for me to keep buying probiotics. Probiotics are natural and can't harm my boys so I will keep investing in them. My boys also like the taste of kids probiotics and it is their daily treat before breakfast.


  I like that Zahler has a delicious probiotic formula for children. My boys like the sweet berry taste of the chewable which is good. If my boys don’t like the taste they won’t take it. So taste is important in my selection of probiotics for my boys. I like that Zahler's Kidoplilus Plus uses Stevia instead of sugar for its sweet taste. I also like that their chewable tablet contains plenty of four distinct probiotic strains in a 250 mg complex. I am still learning about the different strains of probiotics but I like when the bottle shows the amounts. Here are the types of strains in Zahler’s Proprietary Blend that has
10 BILLION LIVE CELLS: Lactobacillus Acidophilus,  Lactobacillus Casei, Lactobacillus Plantarum, Lactobacillus Bulgaricus, andBifidobacterium Bifidum.





  I try to be proactive in my boy's health. That means doing my best to make sure they eat healthy foods and get plenty of exercise. Their daily probiotic is a healthy way to keep their digestive track healthy too. Probiotics are the good guys that take care of the bad bacteria in their gut which keeps their whole body healthy. The more I learn about probiotics the more I say to myself "why did I not get my family on probiotics sooner?" I know that my daily probiotic keeps me "regular" in my potty habits as when I forget to take mine, I experience slowness and gas. I have my husband taking probiotics for his gingivitis and his dental appointments are getting better. My teen has been annoyed by acne and his pimple cream is not working. So I was even able to encourage my teen to take a daily probiotic as I want to see if it could help with his acne. It is simply amazing how our gut health is connected to so many other things in our body like our skin and immune health. 

                         Do you take probiotics? If so I would love to hear how they have helped you.

  13. It has really helped our granddaughter, too. Not only her stomach issues, but even if she gets sick, it doesn't last as long as before. Too often we wait until our kids are sick to be proactive and then it's too late.
