How it works
In babies and children, the friendly bacteria that naturally inhabit the intestinal tract play an important role in both digestive health and the development of the immune system. However, their establishment and ecology are easily disrupted by invading microorganisms, formula feeding, illness, and the use of antibiotics (among other factors).
Fusion® Kids’ Probiotic Advanced™ helps maintain babies’ and children’s intestinal microflora and healthy digestive function, and may help to prevent and relieve tummy upsets such as flatulence, colic and abdominal bloating.
For children with constipation, Kids’ Probiotic Advanced™ eases bowel movements by promoting normal bowel transit time and improving the consistency and other properties of the stool.
The clinically tested strains of Bifidobacteria in this formula (B. breve, B. infantis and B. longum) also support the developing immune system, and may reduce the risk and recurrence of upper respiratory infections such as colds.
In children with atopic allergies (such as eczema and hayfever) the faeces contain reduced proportions of these Bifidobacteria species. Taking a probiotic supplement may enhance affected children’s immune responses, reduce their risk of developing atopy (allergic conditions) and/or provide symptomatic relief from allergic conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.
Fusion® Kids’ Probiotic Advanced™ also contains a prebiotic blend of inulin and pre-gelatinised rice starch, which acts as an energy source for Bifidobacteria and aids the absorption of nutrients vital to growing kids, such as calcium, iron and zinc.
Healthy maternal microflora during and after the birthing process is an important contributor to optimal bacterial colonisation in newborn babies, so this formula is also suitable for use by expectant and breastfeeding mothers wishing to support their babies’ gastrointestinal health.
