CHEWABLE Probiotic for Kids
KOVOH Probiotic for Kids helps keep your little bundles of joy healthy and happy.
Our children’s probiotic provides 6 billion CFUs (colony forming units- the number of viable microorganisms), which work naturally with your child’s body to help support both immune and digestive health. The strains included have been chosen because of their proven benefits for children’s digestive health. They restore the natural balance of beneficial bacteria in their digestive tract to help support a healthy digestive system. Prebiotic nutrients are also included to help your child’s gut microbiota flourish
Probiotics have been shown to be helpful for children for several reasons. They keep harmful types of microbes from infecting your child’s gut, keep their immune system strong, and allow them to absorb more nutrients from their food. Research has found that a healthy gut microbiome is even important for children’s developmental processes.
Your kids are sure to love our delicious strawberry-flavored tablets! We know you want what is best for your little ones, and so do we. Our probiotics are completely free from artificial flavors, dyes, and sweeteners. They also do not need to be refrigerated, so you can keep them anywhere for convenient access.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus: this strain has been clinically-proven to reduce the symptoms of gastrointestinal upset and irritable bowel syndrome in children, including abdominal pain.23It can also help reduce cholesterol, triglycerides, and liver fat in children, promoting a healthier body weight and metabolism later in life.22
Lactobacillus acidophilus: acidophilus is perhaps the most well-known probiotic, since it has been used the longest to address gastrointestinal symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, and irritable bowel syndrome.4,7 It is also frequently used to restore a healthy gut microbiome following antibiotic therapy.8
Lactobacillus casei:this strain is excellent at keeping harmful mircrobes from growing, including infection-causing Candida yeast species.9 It has also been clinically shown to boost natural antioxidant and immune system function.10,11Some doctors even recommend it for newborn infants to promote the prevention of infections.9
Lactobacillus paracasei:this strain is particularly useful for enhancing immunity, and has been clinically-proven to increase counts of T cells.3,12 It also has been shown to reduce the amount of Ruminococcus bacteria in the gut, which can contribute to intestinal disorders and other health problems if allowed to grow unchecked.12-15
