Probulin® My Little Bugs™ Total Care Probiotic For Kids is a unique combination of broad-spectrum digestive support. Each chewable probiotic includes prebiotics and postbiotics for optimum digestive care for your child.
My Little Bugs™ probiotics are derived from organic fruits and vegetables. And as a part of the Total Care line, they provide a broad spectrum approach to supporting the microbiome. Features and benefits include:
Should my child be taking a probiotic? If you’re a parent of a young child, you may have already asked yourself this question. As an adult, we understand the health benefits of taking a daily probiotic – support for digestion and immune health. But do the benefits for adults translate to your child? The answer is yes, and for reasons that may, but also may not, be so intuitive. Let’s take a look at the benefits of probiotics for young children.
The reality is even newborns can benefit from probiotics. Often, mothers are given antibiotics during the birth process, sapping both mother and child of healthy bacteria in their bodies. If a child is born via C-section, the child misses out on the benefits of bacterial exposure during a vaginal birth. In either of these situations, providing probiotics to the infant can be beneficial.
The challenge is how to administer probiotics to such a young child. For that reason, the common age recommended for oral probiotics like Probulin’s My Little Bugs™ Total Care Probiotic is 4+. For most probiotics, the risk would be to avoid choking on capsules. My Little Bugs™ are chewables, which significantly reduces choking risk. But for safety, My Little Bugs™ also recommends consumption for ages 4 and up.
It’s not uncommon for children to have issues with digestion at such a young age. Things that create these complications can be related to diet, various medications like antibiotics, and so many other challenges. Taking a daily probiotic for children can help support digestion and digestive health, as well as support immune health. My Little Bugs™ Total Care Probiotic For Kids is a broad-spectrum delicious, watermelon flavored chewable probiotic designed to not only be good for kids, but fun too!
Research is showing us that the gut microbiome is not only vital for proper digestion and the dissemination of nutrients through the intestinal lining. We now know that there are important psychological and neurological benefits to a healthy digestive tract as well.
We know even very young children have persistent digestive issues and need immune support. A child’s modern diet consists of more processed foods relative to fruits and leafy greens, wreaking havoc on their developing digestive system. Children of all ages are, in many cases, challenged with increasing motility issues, are more sedentary, and have more stress in their lives than ever before.
For all of these reasons, now more than ever, children need good bacteria in their gut. And they can now get that in the form of a daily probiotic chewable for kids. Even if everything seems normal, they benefit from daily support of their developing digestive & immune system. And it can be a great habit for the child and parent alike to take a daily probiotic!
For children with persistent digestive issues, it is quite possible you will see a difference in their stool and in the comfort associated with their digestive tract. But other indications, just like for an adult, may be less visible. What we do know is that a healthy digestive tract benefits many important areas of our overall health. And taking a daily probiotic, providing beneficial bacteria to the gut, is a proven way to support gut health – in both children and adults.
When you are looking for a PRObiotic, it is vital to make sure that it contains a PREbiotic & a PRObiotic with a scientifically validated delivery system such as the MAKTrek 3-D Probiotic Delivery system. If you really want to step it up and make sure that your PRObiotic will be most effective, make sure that it not only contains the PREbiotic, PRObiotic, and proven delivery system, but also POSTbiotics.
Probulin’s Total Care Probiotic is a great choice for those who seek PRE-, PRO-, and POSTbiotics together. Live a healthier and more balanced you by making a well formulated PRObiotc part of your daily routine.
A PREbiotic is a fraction of soluble fiber that is a food source for the PRObiotics. You may have heard how important fiber is in the diet. Well, the fact that PRObiotic bacteria need this PREbiotic fiber as a food source is a big reason for this importance. If PRObiotics are properly nourished, then they are healthier. And their health is important to your health.
A PRObiotic is a microorganism (such as Lactobacilli or Bifidobacteria) that, when consumed as a food or dietary supplement, helps maintain and restore beneficial bacteria to the digestive tract. PRObiotics have been linked, by countless clinical studies, to support immune health, motility function, proper digestion of the food we eat, and so much more.
A POSTbiotic is defined as the compounds that are created by PRObiotics as they live and thrive in the digestive system. These POSTbiotic compounds created by the PRObiotics may include such things as vitamins like Vitamin K and B012, Amino Acids, Bacteriocins (natural compounds that destroy harmful organisms), Short Chain Fatty acids (that can become nourishment to the body and help to promote growth of beneficial probiotic bacteria in the body), other organic acids and metabolites that are vital to overall health, and so much more.
Lifestyle challenges, such as diet, normal aging, overuse of medications, stress, environment, alcohol consumption, and much more may all contribute to digestive imbalance of essential beneficial bacteria such as bifidobacteria. Taking a daily probiotic is an important part of your routine. Research shows probiotics may support:
The MAKTrek® 3-D three-step system has scientifically demonstrated an ability to ensure a greater number of surviving beneficial probiotic bacteria — beyond other probiotic delivery systems.
Using a sustainably harvested extract of brown seaweed, we have created a secondary barrier to protect the beneficial probiotic bacteria. We like to refer to this as our Seaweed Submarine. Even after the probiotic powder is exposed to 1.5pH stomach acid for 60 minutes, the probiotic bacteria inside the Seaweed Submarine are still dry and protected.
Before activation, the beneficial probiotic bacteria are in a dormant state. These bacteria are activated by exposure to moisture, but once active, they can over-hydrate and die. Using our proprietary isotonic delivery step, we acheive activation with a more balanced hydration. This supports higher survival rates in probiotic bacteria.
All strains of probiotic bacteria used in Probulin® probiotics are resistant to many pressures created by environmental exposure to common everyday elements.
Sustainably harvested Brown Seaweed (Lessonia nigrecens) which in used to form our proprietary “Seaweed Submarine” which protects the valuable probiotics from stomach acid and bile.
Key to the success of our MAKTrek 3-D Probiotic Delivery System, important electrolyte minerals help to support survival of our beneficial probiotic bacteria by helping create an isotonic (“balanced”) water environment.
Lactobacilli Bacteria are important beneficial probiotic bacteria that primarily live in the small intestines (Upper Gastrointestinal Environment). The most well-know is Acidophilous which has been studied in areas like immune support.
Bifidobacteria are important beneficial probiotic bacteria that live primarily in the large intestines (Lower Gastrointestinal Environment. These particular type of probiotic bacteria have been studied in the area of support for challenges such as occasional loose bowels and constipation.
Prebiotics are portions of soluble fiber that are the favorite food for beneficial probiotic bacteria. Prebiotics are important food resources for probiotics to ensure better survival. Prebiotic fiber can be found in Inulin as well as many other fruits, vegetables, seed & legumes.
If you’re looking for the ideal probiotic dietary supplement, you’ve probably noticed the broad array of brands and ingredients available in forms that include capsules, powders, and liquids. Trying to make direct comparisons between them can be confusing – unless you know what to look for. Here are some tips on what to look for:
You want your probiotic to include a PREbiotic fiber. PREbiotics, like Inulin, are food for the probiotics and necessary for their survival.
Taking more billions CFU (colony forming units) is NOT more effective. Evidence suggest more than 10-20 billion CFU may be unnecessary, especially if delivered properly.
Effective delivery of probiotics to the gut is significantly more important than the CFU count. This is why Probulin® uses the scientifically validated MAKTrek® 3-D Probiotic Delivery System.
