What is NatureWise Kids’ Care Probiotics?
Carefully formulated just for kids with clinical strains, NatureWise Kids’ Care Probiotics is backed by scientific research, and select prebiotics to help replenish the beneficial flora in children’s intestines for optimal health.
As with any dietary supplement, you should consult your healthcare provider before use, especially if pregnant, nursing, have a medical condition, taking medications, or have known adverse reactions or allergies.
How does Kids’ Care Probiotics support kids’ health?
Kids are exposed daily at school and at play to environmental factors that can challenge their immune systems. The balance of “good” gut flora that lives naturally in a child’s intestines can also be depleted by diets too high in sugar or low in fiber, and by exposure to antibiotics and certain medications. Any and all of these influences can deplete the friendly bacteria that kids need to keep their digestive and immune systems strong.
How is it different than other probiotic products for kids?
Other probiotic products for kids, like chewable gummies or liquid probiotics, are often designed primarily to be fuss-free for parents. Unfortunately, that means most of the live cultures are destroyed in the mouth and stomach, and only a miniscule amount of probiotics, if any, make it through to their targeted destination.
Is Kids’ Care Probiotics chewable?
The tiny micro-pearl is easy-to-take and designed to be swallowed whole. Accidentally chewing the micro-pearl is not harmful.
How many CFUs does Kids’ Care Probiotics contain?
Does it need to be refrigerated?
What is the WiseBiotics Delivery System?
What does ‘acid resistant’ mean?
Once your caplet is moistened by digestive fluids, the WiseBiotics delivery system forms a protective, outer layer that shields probiotics from harsh stomach acids and fluctuating pH levels. Not until the caplet reaches the intestinal tract will it then begin to slowly dissolve, continuously releasing beneficial probiotics from the caplet core.*
What does ‘sustained release’ mean?
WiseBiotics continues to repopulate beneficial gut flora over 8-10 hours. Enteric-coated capsules release their entire contents upon dissolution, but our WiseBiotics delivery system continuously distributes probiotics as the caplet moves through your GI tract. Our caplet technology directs strain-specific probiotics to the microenvironments best suited for them to flourish.
