Approximately 100 trillion microorganisms made up of more than 500 species already live in a normal, healthy colon with no two kids having the same mix of bacteria. But there are several reasons why the balance between “good” and “bad” bacteria can be thrown off and leave a child’s delicate gut flora causing uncomfortable symptoms of diarrhoea, bloating, pain, cramping, gas and even colic.
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that work by colonizing the small and large intestines and that inhibit the growth of harmful organisms. They have been found to stimulate the immune system and enhance the absorption of certain nutrients. Research shows that certain strains can be helpful for restoring a healthy gut flora after the use of antibiotics and in cases of diarrhoea.
