HOW IT WORKS
The human body relies on a healthy level of probiotics for numerous functions, including metabolizing foods, absorbing nutrients and maintaining a proper balance of intestinal flora. Probiotic microbes have a symbiotic relationship with their human hosts—both the probiotics and the humans benefit from their relationship. It is estimated that over 400 different types of normal flora inhabit the human gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts. Studies have shown that children age 1 to 6 years old who attended day care centers and were given milk containing Lactobacillus rhamnosus missed fewer days of day care than children not receiving the probiotic. Studies have also shown that a healthy intestinal bacterial colonization may reduce the risk of food allergies in infants. Researchers have also found that probiotics aid digestion. Each chewable tablet of Sunshine Heroes® Probiotic Power contains 1 billion friendly cultures from 11 strains of probiotics.
WHY PROBIOTIC POWER?
Children need supplements that work, but they won’t eat them if they don’t taste good. Probiotic Power contains some of the best and most popular strains of beneficial bacteria in a kid-friendly blend. And each tablet features premium, good-for-you ingredients, including the Protector Shield blend of antioxidant whole foods, essential amino acids and fruit juices, plus natural sweeteners. Probiotic Power delivers support to the intestinal tract, bolstering microbiome health anytime there’s tummy trouble.
THE STORY BEHIND PROBIOTIC POWER (SUNSHINE HEROES®)
The concept of eating fermented food goes WAY back. By about 500 A.D., Koreans had found a new technique to preserve food for winter: burying jars of cabbage, cucumber or radishes mixed with strong spices. Kimchi is one of many fermented foods that offers health benefits for the immune system. And while fermented foods are more popular than they used to be, some of us, especially kids, prefer tasty tablets.
L. acidophilus was first discovered in 1890 by Dr. Ernst Moro. It has been studied ever since. Similarly, bifidobacteria were first isolated in 1899 in the diapers of breast-fed babies. L. rhamnosus wasn’t isolated until 1983. This species is known for thriving in the intestine and its ability to survive in acid environments. Another relative newcomer, L. casei, was only distinguished as its own species 50 years ago.
