Are probiotics & vitamin D beneficial for babies?

How do you know what health products and supplements are necessary or not when it comes to your little one? How do you choose and what do you look for?


Probiotics are beneficial bacteria essential for improving intestinal health. The microflora of newborn babies is underdeveloped, making them more susceptible to opportunistic gut infections1.

By supplementing your baby’s diet with probiotics, you can strengthen the barrier effect in their intestines to keep them healthy2. Probiotics can increase the levels of beneficial bacteria in the gut, creating an environment that is unfavourable to the growth of harmful bacteria.

By introducing live probiotic cultures to the intestinal tract, the beneficial gut flora populations are increased and transitory flora, including pathogenic or bad bacteria, are unable to colonise3.
