Details


While there are many probiotics for children on the market today, it’s important to know the probiotic supplement you’re giving your child will work for their digestive health needs. DNA is committed to giving you the best probiotics for kids, and that's why we've created DNA Chewable Probiotics. Bacteria are naturally present within the body and are concentrated within the digestive tract. Both healthy bacteria (probiotics) and potentially unhealthy bacteria populate inside the digestive tract. Maintaining a balance of these two types of bacteria is essential to maintain optimal health. Such a bacterial balance is especially important for children, and research has shown that consuming probiotics, whether through foods or supplements, can promote children’s balance of bacteria – and consequently, their health. 

But not all probiotic supplements for children are created equal. A quality probiotic product for children delivers effective strains of helpful bacteria to your child’s digestive system. Plus, the best probiotics for kids also ensure these helpful bacteria are protected before use (to protect the delicate bacteria during shelf life) and through the digestive process. DNA Chewable Probiotics contains five billion colony forming units from five carefully selected bacterial strains, and is formulated to help ensure your child receives the full benefits of the selected probiotics. Each probiotics strain used in DNA Chewable Probiotics has a unique, proven role to help support children’s health. Getting your children to taking their probiotics supplement will be easy thanks to the delicious, fruit-flavoured chewable. It’s just one of the many reasons DNA Chewable Probiotics is one of the best probiotics for kids on the market today, as we pledge a commitment to quality and care to give your children nothing but the best. Because Every Child is a Miracle ™. 

This product is sold with at least a 3 month shelf life remaining.

Ingredients


Clinical research has shown that probiotics have a positive impact on immunity, digestive health and much more. Probiotics help maintain a healthy balance of essential bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract and are increasingly important in the Canadian diet as we continue to rely on processed foods and prescription medications. 

Lactobacillus rhamnosus 
L. rhamnosus is a strain of probiotics that aids in balancing the gastrointestinal microflora. It is one of the most intensely studied bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. One of the remarkable things about L. rhamnosus is its ability to tolerate and even thrive in the harsh acidic conditions normally found in the stomach. L. rhamnosus has been shown to support immune function and help maintain the integrity of the stomach lining. A randomized clinical trial published in the British Medical Journal demonstrated that L. rhamnosus works better than other probiotics in relieving occasional diarrhea and supporting stomach comfort and regularity in children. 

Lactobacillus salivarius 
L. salivarius resides in the mouth and small intestine. It has been shown effective in minimizing unhealthy bacteria in the mouth, thus promoting dental health. L. salivarius may also support immune health. 

Lactobacillus paracasei 
Like other lactobacillus species, L. paracasei is acid and bile resistant. This aids in the bacteria’s ability to travel, viably, from the mouth through the stomach and finally into the intestine. L. paracasei and L. rhamnosus have the ability to survive in the acidic conditions of the stomach. 

Lactobacillus plantarum 
L. plantarum promotes a healthy digestive tract by promoting bacterial balance in the mucosal lining and also by competing for nutrients with unhealthy. L. plantarum is able to preserve vital nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins. Children who do not eat a wide variety of fruits, vegetables or certain fermented foods may have a deficit of very beneficial enzymes that probiotics provide. This may be remedied by supplementation with L. plantarum. Another amazing talent of L. plantarum is its ability to synthesize L-lysine, an essential amino acid which is required for countless necessary functions in the body. 

Lactobacillus acidophilus 
L. acidophilus is a strain found in the intestines and the mouth. These bacteria break down the sugar lactose in milk, but also have been used to control certain types of diarrhea. Diarrhea primarily caused by oral antibiotics has been helped the most with L. acidophilus. By replenishing the gut with L. acidophilus after an antibiotic, normal bacterial balance can be established again. Some research also shows its benefits on immune health.

FAQs


Can DNA Chewable Probiotics be taken with DNA Isotonix Digestive Enzymes? 
Yes, DNA Chewable Probiotics and DNA Isotonix Digestive Enzymes would complement each other when taken together as part of your daily nutritional supplement regimen. These products should not be taken concurrently. Digestive enzymes should be taken with a meal and Probiotics should be taken on an empty stomach at least two hours after a meal. 

Can DNA Chewable Probiotics be taken with other DNA children’s supplements? If so, which ones? 
Yes. DNA Chewable Probiotics can safely be taken with other DNA children’s supplements, provided one follows the recommended serving size for each product. 

What is the difference between DNA Chewable Probiotics and DNA Probiotics Extra? Can my child continue using DNA Probiotics Extra? 
While there is nothing to preclude children older than two years of age from using DNA Probiotics Extra, that product’s formula is designed specifically for infants and newborns. As they get older, the makeup of gut flora in children changes. That is why we have created DNA Chewable Probiotics, which is designed specifically for children older than two years of age. 

How should I take DNA Chewable Probiotics? 
Take one tablet before the first meal of the day. The tablet can be chewed or allowed to dissolve in the mouth. If you are on antibiotic(s), take at least 2–3 hours before or after. 

Are there any allergens in DNA Chewable Probiotics? 
DNA Chewable Probiotics contains trace amounts of milk from the fermentation process. There are less than 2 parts per million (ppm) of milk in each serving. This product is safe for individuals with lactose sensitivity. 

How long will it take before DNA Chewable Probiotics begins to support my child’s digestive needs? 
Each child is different, depending on their gastrointestinal tract and sensitivity, so results and timing will vary. In some cases, support will begin within a few days. In others, it may take weeks. 

How will DNA Chewable Probiotics affect digestion? 
There are many aspects to good digestion. They include enzymes (which start breaking down foods in the mouth and are found in the intestines), pH conditions, bile from the gall bladder, intestinal microflora and some digestive properties contained in the food that we eat. Diet and supplementing your intestines with probiotics can help support digestion. Well balanced intestinal micro flora will promote healthy digestion.

My product review

I have ordered these probiotics for my son and am amazed by the results. He has always been a picky eater causing him not to be able to go to the bathroom often. After using this product he has had such stomach comfort. Until he starts adopting a better diet.
