About the Productw
Udo’s Choice Children’s Blend Microbiotics has been trusted by Irish parents for over 20 years.
What are the benefits of taking probiotics? Bacteria have a reputation for causing disease, so the idea of tossing down a few billion a day for your health might seem — literally and figuratively — hard to swallow. But a growing body of scientific evidence suggests that you can treat and even prevent some illnesses with foods and supplements containing certain kinds of live bacteria. Northern Europeans consume a lot of these beneficial microorganisms, called probiotics (from pro and biota, meaning “for life”), because of their tradition of eating foods fermented with bacteria, such as yogurt. Probiotic-laced beverages are also big business in Japan.
Not all probiotics are the same. Different strains of the bacteria have different effects. For example, one strain may fight against cavity-causing organisms in our mouths and don’t need to survive a trip through our guts.
Research has been promising for these friendly critters. Potential benefits of probiotics have been seen in the treatment or prevention of: diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, H. pylori (the cause of ulcers), vaginal infections, urinary tract infections, infection of the digestive tract caused by Clostridium difficile, pouchitis (a possible side effect of surgery that removes the colon), eczema in children and so on.
The World Health Organization (WHO) define these “good” bacteria as “live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host.”
