Many bacterial and air-borne illnesses are only experienced once as the body recognises how to deal with it should another potential invasion occur.
As adults we carry inside a huge cocktail of bacteria mostly in our digestive system and particularly in the mouth and intestines. In the intestines many bacteria are serving a purpose in helping to break down food and are essential as an aid to infusing nutrients through the lining of this part of our anatomy.
Oddly enough babies are born without any bacteria that only begin to invade in the birth canal. Children are then invaded by hundreds of different strains of bacteria as they grow.
It’s therefore hardly surprising that the invasion of many different common types of bacteria in no particular order means very young children are susceptible to all sorts of coughs and colds, loose stools and temperature highs and lows.
At the end of any bout of illness it is inevitable that some good bacteria will have been lost and now there is a replacement product for young children.
There are many different probiotic supplements taken by adults but it is only now that a carefully formulated kid’s version is available in the form of Kidslac Probiotics.
There are good and bad bacteria in our gut although this is a bit of a simplification as the bad may be keeping the good in prime defensive and aggressive state. Probiotics have been known about for many hundreds of years despite the fact that it wasn’t until the seventeenth century and advancements in microscopes that anyone had seen bacteria.
Health is something that is attained by sensible diet and physical exercise and unfortunately there are a depressing number of parents that are clearly obese and setting a bad example for the children.
Giving a probiotic supplement should only be part of a program to ensure obesity is not allowed to happen through a healthy diet and exercise for the young.
