Food supplement. Xylitol-lactic acid bacteria-chewing tablet.
An infant’s intestinal bacterial microbiota begins to develope after birth and continues until the age of two to three. At approximately three years of age, bacterial composition and diversity is most like those of adults. A child is affected by bacteria from his mother, environment close to him and diet. Lactic acid bacteria are one of the first bacteria colonising infant’s gut, therefore the intake of these bacteria during early childhood is beneficial. The factors modifying a child’s microbiota the most are diet and use of antibiotics. Repeated use of antibiotics can shift the composition and overall diversity of infant’s microbiota for years.
LACTO SEVEN KIDS contains seven different natural lactic acid bacterial strains (i.e Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium) that are naturally resistant to gastric acid. During the production of bacteria, they have been protected by a special Bio-support™ technology made of proprietary blend of peptides and polysaccharide complex. This technology ensures the survival of the bacteria when they are passing through stomach acidity and reach the gut. In the intestine the bacteria attach to gut mucosal membranes and colonise.
