Children's Acidophilus

by Vitabase

  • Acidophilus is a beneficial bacteria that may be killed by antibiotics
  • Helps with digestion and nutrient absorption
  • Multi-species probiotic for both small and large intestine
  • Microencapsulated to ensure passage through the stomach
  • Over 1 billion viable cells per capsule

There are over 100,000 billion viable bacteria in your digestive system made up of some 400 different kinds. Maintaining a proper balance between “friendly” bacteria and harmful bacteria is important to good health--even for children. With the explosive use of antibiotics today, children may experience unexpected side effects as the good bacteria are destroyed along with disease-causing bacteria. 

Probiotics are dietary supplements containing live bacteria taken orally to restore beneficial bacteria to the body. These supportive bacteria can help restore the digestive system to a proper balance.

Ongoing research has revealed a number of possible applications for probiotics. Acidophilus works to break down food in the small intestine and leads to the production of lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide, as well as other products that help suppress detrimental organisms.

Acidophilus also participates in the production of lactase, an enzyme that breaks down milk sugar (lactase) into simple sugars. This helpful bacterium is also important in production of vitamin K. Other uses include the possible reduction or prevention of some diarrheas. Bifidobacterium provides similar functionality in the colon. Everyone needs these helpful bacteria. Acidophilus helps synthesize important vitamins, nutrients and enzymes. Vitabase’s Children’s Acidophilus contains a minimum of 1 billion viable cells per tablet.

Children's Acidophilus is a high-potency, multiple species probiotic supplement. It provides beneficial bacteria in amounts that help establish an excellent digestive environment. Micro encapsulation helps to protect the cells against the destruction caused by the harsh acidic environment of the stomach. Without this, the vast majority of beneficial cells would be destroyed. Institute Rosell of Montreal, Canada, a world leader in probiotics, manufactures our Children's acidophilus through a proprietary process that ensures the survivability of the cells at room temperature; therefore, this product does not require refrigeration.
