The Importance of a Healthy Gut and Strong Immune System #BioGaiaProbiotics

Children start building their immune system at about 2-3 month age. Baby's immune system starts to develop when it comes in contact with bacteria and viruses. We know how important is to have healthy gut for little babies. Upset stomach, colic and diarrhea are just a few gut related issues everyone experiences during lifetime. Abdominal pain, flatulence and constipation affect up to five million Canadians. The foods we consume significantly affect and define our gut health. With astonishing number of 75 million people in North American suffering from upset stomachs we want to see our children growing healthy and strong.

Recently we were invited to an information session to learn more about Probiotics, and how BioGaia®  products can help adults and children achieve a healthy gut. The event was hosted by health professional Bryce Wylde whom I met before and attended his educational seminars. He specializes in homeopathy, clinical nutrition, supplementation, and botanical medicine. Julie Daniluk, the nutritionist and co-host of reality cooking show Healthy Gourmet (Oprah Winfrey Network), and in-house nutritionist on the Marilyn Denis Show (CTV) joined us to share her knowledge about food choices, health and presented her delicious recipes.

Everything starts with food choices we make every single day. Our gut flora changes depending on what we consume. If food is rich in sugar and low in fibre, we lose the balance between good and bad bacteria in out guts. While the importance of antibiotic is out of question, right now it is definitely #1 killer of probiotics. It takes from 12 to 24 month to get your digestive system back on track, that’s why the taking probiotics is so important. The demand in probiotics grows every year as the balance in the digestive system means strong immune system, healthy body, less stress, allergy and skin problems.


What you can do to improve, preserve and help children achieve a healthy gut:
  • Learn your body, remove food from your diet that cause constipation and an allergic response 
  • Get more good bacteria from fermented food like beans, fruts, grains (legumes), milk (kefir, cheese, probiotic yogurt) vegetable (kimchi, sauerkraut), pickles. 
  • Add some prebiotic food, our gut flora need to eat and grow with us, so eating more fibre helps good bacteria grow 
  • Born via C-section baby needs to be introduced to probiotics since she/he did not pass by the mother’s beneficial flora to strengthen little body immune system 
  • Freshly squeezed vegetable juices bring mineral content for the body band preserve & enhanced vit C and vitamin D 
  • Number of microorganisms does not make bacteria probiotic 
  • Add natural probiotics like BioGaia to the diet 
  • Stress and anxieanty is not only adult problem, children require digestive tract treatment, probiotics and fibre

This special probiotic naturally colonizes the digestive tract. It is even found in the milk of breastfeeding mothers. In fact, it is among the first bacterial species to become naturally established in the normal flora of babies.

L. reuteri Protectis is one of the most well-researched probiotics in the world, especially in children. BioGaia® products:
  • Are 100% natural 
  • Do not contain alcohol

We tried both Probiotic Drops and Probiotic Sugar-Free Chewable Tablets. I think that drops are perfect for little babies because you can add them to any drink. Elder  children of Teddy's age like Chewable Tablets more. Teddy gets sick few times a year especially during fall  and winter seasons with flu and cold, and last time his temperature was so high that the doctor gave him antibiotics to take and then probiotics to keep the balance in the digestive tract. Kids are getting sick very often especially with upset stomach, it is always good to have reliable products to support our children body and keep them healthy.
