Info: 30 Chewable Tablets with Orange Burst Flavour

Children can be subject to ongoing digestive disturbances even after sorting their food sensitivities out, and they're certainly prone to sore throats and upper respiratory tract infections. And given their reluctance to take medications (even natural ones), wouldn't it be great if you could address both those issues at once in a format they'll actually take, or even enjoy? Well, now you can! These chewable tablets with an orange-burst flavour (sweetened, but with tooth-friendly xylitol, not sugar) are a very palatable way to support your child's digestive system and help prevent throat infections and lessen the duration of respiratory infections.

Product Notes:

Probiotics or beneficial bacteria can be a great way to restore an imbalance of the complex ecosystem of microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract (which can be brought on by antibiotics, poor eating, stress, or other factors) to help resolve digestive issues. They can also help the immune system -- which is actually based mostly in the gut. But that's not all: some can also help prevent or at least lessen the duration or severity of respiratory infections in particular, by populating the membranes in the respiratory tract and preventing the infectious organisms from entering the body or attaching to the receptors which would take them in.

Specially formulated for kids, Renew Life Kids Throat Defense Probiotic features three strains which have been used in many clinical studies. The first two strains are of animal origin, and when they were used in combination in a randomized controlled trial conducted by Gerasimov et al., they found they lessened the duration of acute respiratory infections in children from ages 3 to 12 by an average of two days compared to the placebo group.
