Children's Acidophilus by Natural Factors
This product can control both constipation and diarrhea. A new and updated Natural Factors Probiotic formula ideal for infants and children, as well as those with lactose intolerance or dairy allergies. Use at weaning and early years. To maintain optimum bacterial balance take 1/4 teaspoon and mix in juice or sprinkle on cereal or fruit. S. thermophilus and L. delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus grow in symbiosis, quickly producing important amounts of lactic acid that inhibit growth of putrefactive bacteria; they produce the enzyme lactase that helps prevent lactose intolerance; enhance immune function. L.acidophilus produces lactic acid which keeps a proper pH balance in the small intestine, inhibiting yeast growth. Studies have show that L.acidophilus is effective in reducing lactose intolerance, inhibiting undesirable organisms in the intestine, reducing cholesterol levels and controlling diarrhea. B. infantis, one of the more important lactic bacteria for infants, is particularly good at inhibiting shigella spp., responsible for much infant diarrhea. L.rhamnosus is probably the most important probiotic strain for health of the mouth to the small intestine. It protects by coating the mucus, preventing toxins from reaching the blood. It even results in better smelling breath.It survives temperature extremes and is resistant to bile salts and stomach acid, ferments 23 sugars and inhibits negative bacteria and yeast growth. It is hardier and keeps better without refrigeration. Compared to L.acidophilus, L.rhamnosus is 8 to 10 times more prolific, has a larger spectrum of sugar fermentation (important for people with milk sugar intolerance) has better control over putrefactive microbes, and is more effective at inhibiting disease-causing pathogens.
