Build your child’s healthy gut flora with advanced gut health probiotic kids!
A healthy gut is essential to your child’s overall health. Researchers have found a link between reduced diversity of gut bacteria and the development of allergies and asthma—children who took antibiotics in the first 6 months of life were 2x more likely to develop asthma by age 4. But many children are only getting probiotics from sugar-laden yogurt!
Early life is critical in shaping your child’s microbiome! That’s why we made advanced gut health probiotic kids formulated with the same quality standards as our advanced gut health probiotic—but made specifically for kids:
✓ Supports a child’s gut flora and overall gastrointestinal health
✓ Multi-strain formula: 7 strains of bacteria to promote overall diversity
✓ Specially crafted for tiny guts: including Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG, one of the most researched probiotics for promoting childhood health and Reuteri, a natural resident of a healthy gut in childhood
✓ Made with clean, stable & pure strains: we use human, third-party verified strains that are triple-cleaned in a temperature- and humidity- controlled environment for a stable, clean and pure probiotic blend
✓ Unique chewable format: “Honeycomb” technology allows for immediate activation of the bacteria once the probiotics come into contact with the mouth—delivering them to where they’re needed
✓ Yummy lemonade chewables: Your kids will love them!
✓ Shelf stable: No refrigeration required
✓ Sugar-free: 0 grams of sugar per serving
✓ Free from: vegan and free from dairy, soy and gluten

- Product Q&A
If your child has allergies or reactions to concentrated lemon juice, it is possible that similar reactions could occur with the lemon flavouring since it is extracted from natural sources.
Yogurt can be a healthy addition to your child’s diet, but yogurt typically does not contain the range of species (usually just up to 4), CFU (around 1 billion) or a mechanism to protect the bacteria during their journey to your child’s gut! Additionally, children’s yogurts are typically loaded with sugar. A daily probiotic—like advanced gut health probiotic kids has 7 strains of bacteria carefully chosen for a child’s health, 5 billion CFU and a unique “honeycomb” tablet that gets the bacteria where they’re needed—is your child’s best bet!
Although we use “human strain” probiotics in our formulas, there are no humans or human by-products involved! These are identical species that naturally reside in our gut (and are acclimatized to the human GI tract) BUT the source of the original culture is so far removed from ever having been in contact with anything human. Bacteria is omnipresent in our environment, and can be collected from any surface, and cultivated in isolation from its original medium – without containing any traces of the original source!
We use a vegan medium that is proprietary.
Yes! advanced gut health probiotic kids contains both resident and transient strains of probiotics.
advanced gut health probiotic kids are recommended to children over the age of 3 and are best taken as recommended—by chewing! We cannot recommend that the tablets be modified to be given to a younger child, because we must abide by Health Canada’s guidelines by age.
For best results, we recommend consuming advanced gut health probiotic kids as directed on the label—by chewing! But, as long as your child is over the age of 3, you can try mixing the probiotic into a smoothie or adding it to yogurt. Just make sure that the probiotics are mixed only with a cool or room temperature product – the less acidic the better – and that it is consumed immediately to minimize the reduction in CFU.
advanced gut health probiotic kids is made with carefully selected acid-resistant strains. We then use an innovative tableting process to protect the viability of the bacteria from production to consumption. (While encapsulated probiotics do help to protect the bacteria, delivering them safely to the gut, it can also cause them to be inaccessible across much of the upper GI tract—including the oral microbiome.)
The spots are caused by ascorbic acid (vitamin C), which we use as an antioxidant that helps to keep the tablets stable. Over time, the ascorbic acid oxidizes, which darkens the colour and appears as small spots on the tablet. It’s worth pointing out that the tablets are still completely safe to take even when spotted!
