This hypoallergenic blend of 5 Lactobacillus and 5 Bifidobacterium species is designed to safely meet the metabolic and intestinal support needs of infants and young children. All species in Ther-Biotic for Infants produce predominantly the L(+) isomer of lactic acid that can be safely metabolized by infants. Ther-Biotic for Infants is designed to support a normal infant microbiota that can be easily disrupted by cesarean section delivery, formula feedings, antibiotics, toxin exposures, or a variety of other factors.*
Supports normal maturation of an infant’s GI and immune system*
Microbial colonization of the gastrointestinal tract, vital for normal gastrointestinal and immune system development, begins at birth. However, this process can be disrupted by cesarean section delivery, hospitalization, formula feeding, antibiotic use, and various exposures. If an infant is breastfed, a maternal diet lacking in fresh fruits and vegetables can also affect microbial colonization. Ther-Biotic for Infants offers select probiotic species that support neonatal microbiota balance and healthy GI and immune system maturation.*
Protects microbial balance*
Ther-Biotic for Infants provides a blend of 10 different probiotic species. Research has shown that diverse probiotic strains are able to favorably shift the balance of gut microbiota towards more beneficial species by competing for nutrients and adhesion sites, producing compounds such as organic acids, hydrogen
peroxide and bacteriocins, and stimulating the body’s own healthy immune response.*
Supports healthy immune response*
Ther-Biotic for Infants supplies five essential Lactobacillus species critical for healthy development of the infant immune system and dendritic cell differentiation.
The five Bifidobacterium species provided are normally predominant in the neonatal microbiota and help enhance innate immunity and support healthy immune response.*
Designed for an infant’s unique needs*
An infant’s gastrointestinal tract is not fully mature and cannot metabolize the
D(-) isomer of lactic acid produced by certain Lactobacillus species often found
in adult probiotics, such as L. acidophilus and L. reuteri. Ther-Biotic for Infants
contains Lactobacillus species that predominantly produce the L(+) isomer of lactic acid, the safe form for an infant’s metabolism.
