Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Bifidobacterium Lactis, Lactobacillus Plantarum and Bifidobacterium Longum along with Inulin - the ingredients in Max Kids Probiotics Powder – all help to reduce occasional tummy troubles by restoring the balance of good and not-so-good bacteria in children’s digestive systems. Taken regularly, probiotics and inulin actually help your child’s digestive and immune systems to work better†.
Probiotics are live nonpathogenic microorganisms that are introduced into the digestive tract to improve microbial balance. Prebiotics and Probiotics have been shown to have the ability to change the composition of gut flora and support healthy immune response of an individual.†
Maintaining a strong immune system and digestive tract is one of the most important things you can do to for your child’s well-being.† Digestive system health is dependent upon the delicate balance of beneficial gut flora. This probiotic supplement increases the number of beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract, which restores balance and promotes optimal digestion and a healthy immune system.† With prebiotics and 6 billion CFU of probiotics per serving, this formula supports the breakdown of food, absorption of nutrients, and healthy elimination of toxins.†

|L. acidophilus is a bacterium commonly found in the intestine and shown to create an “unfriendly” environment for bad bacteria.|
|B. lactis is a bacterium commonly found in the large intestine and shown to reduce pH, creating an unfavorable environment for bad bacteria.|
|L. plantarum is a bacterium typically found in fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles and sour dough bread. It has the ability to destroy pathogens and to preserve critical nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants.|
|B. longum is a bacterium that helps to maintain a normal digestive tract, inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria and support the immune system.|
|Inulin is a form of soluble fiber that nourishes probiotics so they can thrive in the intestines; it is often referred to as “prebiotics”.|
Childhood is a time of rapid growth and that relies on a balanced and healthy diet. Establishing a healthy digestive tract at a young age is important because of the connection between the digestive tract and immune system. A child’s immune system is established during the first few years of their life, with the majority of this development happening within the digestive tract†. As your child grows, their digestive system has to adapt to changes in diet, stomach bugs, and even minor fluctuations, like when they eat too much sugar. All these changes can result in poor digestive health†.
One way to support the health of the digestive tract through the variations of childhood is by taking a daily probiotic and prebiotic supplement. Research suggests that supplementing with probiotics at an early age can benefit the immune and digestive systems†.
- Probiotics are a safe and effective treatment against infectious diarrhea and antibiotic associated diarrhea. The duration of infectious diarrhea is reduced by about one day when probiotics are used as part of treatment.
- Probiotics have been shown to reduce inflammatory cytokines and intestinal permeability in vitro. Such an effect would be beneficial in allergic disorders.
- Diet alone has the strongest and most direct impact on gut microbial colonization. Dietary consumption of prebiotics and probiotics has the ability to induce major shifts in gut microbial composition, directly affecting the mucosal immune system and resulting in positive effects on enteric inflammatory disorders and the systemic immune response.
- Bacteria that inhabit the gut regulate the colonization and eradication of pathogens. Thus, the administration of oral probiotics and prebiotics that boost the growth of natural competitors should be an effective treatment of enteric diseases.
- Research has demonstrated that probiotics may be particularly effective not only in intestinal inflammation but may affect the systemic immune response that occurs with food-related allergies in children. Studies in infants with eczema receiving probiotic-supplemented formulas have shown benefit in decreasing both gastrointestinal symptoms as well as eczema.
As with any dietary supplement, consult your healthcare practitioner before using this product, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, anticipating surgery, take medication on a regular basis or are otherwise under medical supervision.
