Babies are born with no gut bacteria. They apparently pick some up on the way down the birth canal. I say apparently, as that is only if the mother has any left to pass over. The way we live our lives these days does not promote the growth or maintenance of good bacteria in the gut, in fact it promotes bad bacteria, protozoans, and bad bugs, like Hpylori.
Babies have occasional digestive issues and one of the causes is not having enough good bacteria in their digestive system. BioGaia ProTectis Baby drops, a natural probiotic, can help keep babies tummies in balance, as it naturally promotes digestive comfort, and can even reduce crying time in colicky babies.
Researchers believe not having enough good bacteria in the tummy is a contributing factor in colic. By helping to maintain a healthy balance in a baby’s digestive system, BioGaia can improve symptoms of colic. In fact, administering BioGaia ProTectis Baby drops to colicky infants has resulted in significantly reduced crying time by up to 72%.
Any parent of a baby with colic knows the desperation of trying to soothe a crying infant. It is physically and emotionally draining and finding a good natural solution is a dream for many parents. Infant colic is widespread, making the condition one of the most common reasons to visit the paediatrician. No wonder consultants recommend the probiotic drops for their little patients!
BioGaia probiotics are available in both drop and tablet form. They contain Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis (L. reuteri). obacillus reuteri which is one of very few probiotic species whose natural habitat is the gut and it is therefore especially well adapted to thrive in this kind of environment. It is among the first bacterial species to become naturally established in the normal microflora of the newborn. Most other probiotic strains are only temporary or transient inhabitants of the gastrointestinal tract, derived from the intake of food.
BioGaia is a guarantee of quality probiotic products formulated and packaged to ensure convenient administration and a stable shelf life of live bacteria cells for many months, at ambient temperature. Lactobacillus reuteri is one of the most scientifically well-documented probiotics with regard to both efficacy and safety.
