We all know a healthy immune system starts with healthy level of so-called ‘good’ bacteria in the gut, but it’s all too easy to get caught in that common childhood cycle of sickness followed by micro-flora depleting antibiotics followed by yet more sickness. That’s where Udo’s Choice® Children’s Blend Microbiotics comes in handy. It contains seven strains of child-specific bacteria to help kids get well and stay well. Lactobacillus helps their systems break down carbohydrates to experience better digestion and nutrition. L.acidophilus slows the growth of yeast and aids the immunity, while other strains combat the growth of vagina and urinary tract bacteria. Udo’s Choice® Children’s Blend Microbiotics helps with the absorption of minerals and with the production of those vital B vitamins – so important for energy, great circulation and finely tuned nervous systems.
Udo’s Choice® Children’s Blend Microbiotics are a first line of defence against common childhood diseases, infections and diarrhoea and are especially useful during the school term when kids get exposed to more illness. They have been shown to help with lactose intolerance and are recommended following a course of antibiotics. They are a terrific support for the immune systems of busy little people, so they can get on with all the fun stuff of childhood while feeling great.
Take 1 to 3 capsules per day after eating to help build up good intestinal flora.

Lactobacillus casei is a bacteria commonly used for milk fermentation and is naturally occurring in the mouth and digestive tract. L.casei breaks down carbohydrates and inhibits the growth of pathogenic and putrefactive bacteria in the small intestine. L.casei has been studied for its antimicrobial effects and its role in cellular immunity. It has also shown to be helpful in treating diarrhoea caused by antibiotics and viruses.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus is one of the most important microbiotic strains for the health of the adult digestive tract from the mouth to the small intestine. It is primarily found in the small intestine and vaginal tract and is beneficial in inhibiting the bacteria involved in vaginal and urinary tract infections. L.rhamnosus has a high resistance to bile salts and stomach acid and therefore grows prolifically. It protects against the invasion of harmful microorganisms by stimulating gut lining cells to produce mucin, a mucous coating that also prevents toxins from reaching the blood. It provides excellent control over putrefactive microbes, and effectively inhibits disease-causing pathogens. One of the most intensively studied strains of Lactobacillus, it has been shown to stimulate immune responses.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is one of the most prominent micro-organisms found in the small intestine. L.acidophilus produces lactic acid which inhibits yeast growth, as well as natural antibiotics which enhance immune functions. L.acidophilus has been shown to inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria such as Salmonella, Shigella, S.faecalis and E.coli. Moreover, studies have shown that L.acidophilus is effective in reducing lactose intolerance, reinforcing the immune system, and reducing cholesterol levels.
Lactobacillus plantarum a strain from vegetal origin, is another major species found in the intestinal tract. It secretes the natural occurring antibiotic lactolin and has beneficial anti-microbial activities. This microbiotic is being studied for its efficacy against allergies and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Lactobacillus fermentum has a wide variety of applications including food fermentation. Some strains of Lactobacillus fermentum have a natural resistance to antibiotics and have been associated with cholesterol metabolism.
Bifidobacterium bifidum is found primarily in the large intestine. As a producer of B vitamins, B.bifidum helps the body in the completion of its digestive process, specifically in the absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium and other vitamins and minerals. B.bifidum produces lactic and acetic acids, which lower the intestinal pH and inhibit unfriendly bacteria from growing. Recent studies have shown that B.bifidum can reduce the incidence of acute diarrhoea in infants and is beneficial in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Bifidobacterium breve colonizes the large intestine and is a producer of lactic and acetic acids that inhibit the growth of undesirable bacteria. It enhances immune responses against various pathogenic antigens and has been shown to repress the growth of ulcer-inducing bacteria. Recent studies have demonstrated that B.breve can colonize the immature bowel of infants very effectively and is associated with better weight gain in very low birth weight infants.
