Why Probiotic Power?
Children need supplements that work, but they won’t eat them if they don’t taste good. Probiotic Power contains some of the best and most popular strains of beneficial bacteria in a kid-friendly blend. And each tablet features premium, good-for-you ingredients, including the Protector Shield blend of antioxidant whole foods, essential amino acids and fruit juices, plus natural sweeteners. Probiotic Power delivers support to the intestinal tract, bolstering microbiome health anytime there’s tummy trouble.
The Story behind Probiotic Power. The concept of eating fermented food goes WAY back. By about 500 A.D., Koreans had found a new technique to preserve food for winter: burying jars of cabbage, cucumber or radishes mixed with strong spices. Kimchi is one of many fermented foods that offers health benefits for the immune system. And while fermented foods are more popular than they used to be, some of us, especially kids, prefer tasty tablets. L. acidophilus was first discovered in 1890 by Dr. Ernst Moro. It has been studied ever since. Similarly, bifidobacteria were first isolated in 1899 in the diapers of breast-fed babies. L. rhamnosus wasn’t isolated until 1983. This species is known for thriving in the intestine and its ability to survive in acid environments. Another relative newcomer, L. casei, was only distinguished as its own species 50 years ago.
Bifidobacterium bifidum, B. infantis, B. longum, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, L. acidophilus, L. bulgaricus, L. brevis, L. plantarum, L. salivarius, L. casei, Streptococcus thermophilus, FOS and our Protector Shield blend of whole foods complex (including powerful antioxidants), 10 amino acids and fruit juice concentrate.
