Stop Missing Work Days because of Your Sick Children 04/30/10

Did you know that bacteria lead to good health?   That’s right, friendly bacteria are essential for a balanced immune system and for preventing illnesses like the cold and flu.

Our bodies contain trillions of bacteria and in our intestinal tract there is actually more bacteria than cells.  This friendly bacteria or “normal flora” is responsible for protecting us from bacteria, producing certain vitamins and minerals, and for providing us with energy.

I have written numerous articles about probiotics because they really do help people FEEL BETTER.  The ingredients in One Wellness Place Probiotics have been shown to help improve symptoms of constipation, diarrhea, yeast infections, acid reflux, rheumatoid arthritis, cholesterol, eczema and more.

But did you know that probiotics can keep your children healthy?  Yep, studies have shown that children that consume probiotics on a daily basis are healthier children.

In 2009 the Journal of Pediatrics compared children who consumed probioticstwice a day for 6 months to children that did not.   The results were astonishing.

  •  The children that took probiotics had 70% fewer fevers, 62 % fewer coughs, and 58% less colds compared to the children that did not.
  • Also in the event that the children who took probiotics did get a cold, the cold, fever, and coughing lasted only ½ the time as the kids who DID NOT take the probiotics.
  • Antibiotic use was reduced by 80% and days missed from group childcare was reduced by 30% in the children that took probiotics.

Remember healthier little children means less colds for adults and less absent days from work.

While One Wellness Place Probiotics are ideal for adults and children over the age of 12.  Younger children and infants require a different product.

Florajen 4 Kids, is a pharmaceutical grade probiotic blend that contains 4 different strains of friendly bacteria.  Each capsule contains 6 billion colony forming units of good bacteria that can be easily mixed with water, juice, or milk.
