The Basics

Why (and how) our products hold the key to immune-digestive health.

Probiotics

The key to healthy little bellies. Our bodies are filled with bacteria — some of it good and some of it bad. The good bacteria keep our digestive systems running smoothly and help keep us healthy.

Probiotics are live microorganisms that increase this good bacteria. They can be found in certain foods and supplements, and there are tons (and tons) of different strains.

Prebiotics

Bacteria are alive — so it only makes sense that they need something to eat. That’s where prebiotics come in. They’re indigestible carbohydrates that nourish the good bacteria, making it extra beneficial.

There are several types of prebiotics, and they have to be paired with specific probiotics for holistic efficacy.

HMO’s

HMOs, or human milk oligosaccharides, are naturally found in most mother’s breastmilk. They’re an indigestible fiber that act as a prebiotic, and in turn strengthen the immune system and digestion.

Synbiotic

Think of synbiotics as a mega dose of good bacteria. They’re created by combining the right prebiotics with the right probiotics, which kicks the probiotics into high gear.

The result? An exceptionally healthy gut and an extra strong immune system.

Microbiome

Inside your gut lives trillions (!) of microbes — including bacteria, fungi, viruses and protozoa. This is known as your microbiome, and it begins taking shape in the womb. It can include both good and potentially harmful microbes, so keeping it balanced is essential to good health.

Vitamin D

A key essential nutrient, vitamin D helps to build strong bones and teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are probiotics?
Probiotics, aka beneficial bacteria, are live microorganisms that increase the number of good bacteria already in the gut. These good bacteria help the body stay healthy and regulate the digestive system and fight harmful bacteria.
What are prebiotics?
Prebiotics are types of non-digestible fibers that stimulate the growth of good bacteria in the gut.
What are synbiotics? What are their benefits?
Synbiotics are simply a combination of prebiotics and probiotics. Since prebiotics enhance the benefits of probiotics, think of synbiotics as a super dose of good, health-improving bacteria that help increase the efficacy of probiotics in the product.
What do baby probiotics do? Why should kids take probiotics?
Probiotics for babies help support your little one’s immune system and keep their digestive system running smoothly. They can help with occasional instances of irregular bowel movements and constipation. Probiotics can also provide aid in the development and maintenance of their metabolism and oral health (depending on the strain).
Are probiotics safe?
Probiotics have been shown safe for babies, toddlers, children and adults. We do, however, always recommend speaking with your healthcare provider before use.
How long does it take for probiotics to work in kids?
When taking probiotics for specific instances of diarrhea or constipation, your child may notice an improvement in a few days. For support of overall digestive or immune health, it can take weeks to see valuable results. Make sure to always follow product labels or your healthcare provider’s advice.
What happens when infants stop taking probiotics?
Studies have shown that probiotics can be effective as a short-term solution to routine tummy troubles, but are often more effective when taken for an extended period. Stopping them will likely make your little one’s gut return to its pre-supplementation condition.
