KidsLac Probiotics (up for grabs)

by Pam on September 14, 2012

“Mom, my stomach hurts!” I’ve heard this complaint so often over the years I sometimes hear these words in my dreams. My oldest daughter seems to be unable to eat much of anything with having issues. When complaining to one of my friends about my children’s latest round of tummy troubles, she suggested I try probiotics. “It can’t hurt,” she added.

When I received a box of KidsLac, probiotics specially made for kids, I decided to give them a try right away. Designed to help support kid’s natural defense systems and reduce occasional digestive upset, these probiotics came in individual packets of sour apple flavored powder. They’re made to be mixed with cold food or beverages or poured directly on the tongue. Because my kids are picky, I decided to try one of the powders first. The flavor is intense if you pour the entire package on the tongue at once, though the taste kind of reminded me of a Pixie Stix. I would gradually pour the powder on in the future. I did find that it mixed well with cold foods and added flavor to applesauce.

I offered the probiotics to my kids who asked me why they needed to take them. My daughter has frequent infections and has had to take several antibiotics. I explained that because the antibiotics kill off the good bacteria in the body, as well as the bad, probiotics helps balance the system and replace the good bacteria. Probiotics also help maintain a healthy digestive tract which can help the immune system and helps with the absorption of nutrients.

KidsLac contains five friendly strains of bacteria:

  • Bifidobacterium bifidum – Helps maintain intestinal flora.
  • Bifidobacterium infantis – The main bacteria found in breastfed infants.
  • Bifidobacterium longum – Helps metabolize a wider range of carbohydrates.
  • Bifidobacterium lactis – Supports the immune system.
  • DDS-1 strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus – Initiates the colonization of good bacteria and helps control PH levels primarily in the colon.

While we haven’t been taking the probiotics long enough to see a change in the amount of illnesses, I am hopeful it will work as we continue to use it.

Yes, we use probiotics for our daughter as well. Sometimes my husband and I take her kids probiotics because they work for us too. I like this piece. This looks like an interesting form factor I’d like to try with my daughter.

Absolutely! I’m going through menopause and I find I have fewer episodes of night sweats when I take probotics.
