Why Are Probiotics Important?
Did you know that 70% of our immune system is located in the gut? A balanced gut flora (good bacteria) can really help to support a child’s immune and digestive system and give them the daily support they need while growing up.
Having a balanced gut flora helps with regular healthy bowel movements and maintain a strong protective gut lining (where food absorption takes place). Any imbalance could lead to digestive issues.
How Do Babies Obtain Their Gut Flora?
At birth, an infant’s gut flora is obtained from their mother and the environment. Infants born vaginally are exposed mainly to microbes that originate from the mother as they pass through the vaginal canal, whereas those delivered by caesarean section appear to acquire intestinal flora mainly from the environment. Infants' microbiome can also develop with skin to skin contact and from breastmilk.
The live bacteria probiotics in Vivio Tummie are protected from stomach acidity by being surrounded in a protective oil coating, which releases the bacteria once in the gut, where colonisation and proliferation can take place.
