Grumbly tummy? Probiotics help promote a healthy digestive system. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that help create a friendly environment in the gut. They make it harder for harmful organisms to grow and establish themselves, especially when they’re taken every day.
Research shows that certain strains of probiotics help restore a healthy gut flora after the use of antibiotics and cases of diarrhea. Orange Naturals’ Kids Probiotic is formulated with species naturally found in the human intestinal microflora and frequently documented in the research for their therapeutic action.
