Two classes of bacterial microorganisms that have been intensively researched for their probiotic health benefits are:
Lactobacillus - Lactobacilli are Gram-positive, rod-shaped, facultative anaerobes found throughout the gastrointestinal tract, but predominantly in the small intestine.
Bifidobacterium - Bifidobacteria are Gram-positive, microaerophilic or obligate anaerobes that are highly prevalent in the large intestine.
The Children's Probioticshave been clinically shown to improve the conditions of Gastrointestinal disorders that are common in children that may range from mild bouts of diarrhea, constipation, and upset stomach to more serious conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and celiac disease.
Probiotic organisms start colonizing the intestinal tract at birth and will persist throughout an individual's life. Numerous factors, however, can disrupt proper development of children’s probiotics, including preterm birth, cesarean delivery, bottle-feeding, unhealthy diet, emotional stress, excess sugar in the diet, use of antibiotics. These factors can give rise to an imbalance between Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria populations and a greater prevalence of pathogen bacteria. Alterations like these can interfere with the intestinal bacteria balance and have long-term health consequences. Imbalance (aka Dysbiosis) of the intestinal bacteria has been linked with many gastrointestinal and systemic disorders including diarrhea, constipation, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), increased risk for respiratory infection, allergies, obesity and metabolic disease.
Children’s probiotics use can help safeguard against these potentially serious conditions by promoting a healthy, balanced intestinal ecosystemfor optimal gastrointestinal health.Master The Body Children's Chewable Probiotics is a high-potency, multi-species probiotic supplement designed to support a healthy intestinal microflora in children 2 years of age and older. This Chewable probiotic can also promote oral health by inhibiting the growth of pathogenic microorganisms associated with dental caries and periodontal disease. The beneficial Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species in this product are heavily researched and clinically shown to improve the health of a child's: gastrointestinal system and immune system.

1. High Potency - 25 Billion Species. The potency of this supplement is also higher than other probiotic supplements for children of this age group and many adult formulas as well. Many supplements have fancy labeling but are selling you 5 to 10 billion species in a dose, which many times isn't enough to make a difference in the overall health with the impact needed.
2 . Master The Body Children’s Chewable Probiotic is formulated with xylitol, a natural sugar that has a sweet flavor children love and unlike ordinary sugars, discourages plaque and tooth decay. This natural sweetener inhibits the growth of different types of mouth bacteria that can be damaging to tooth enamel and gums and is an effective plaque-preventive agent. To avoiding the dislike many children have for pills and to increase contact time of the probiotics and xylitol with the mouth and teeth the best probiotic for a children's supplement is provided as a chewable tablet. In clinical trials, xylitol-sweetened gums or candies have shown positive effects against the growth of oral plaque. A long-term trial involving over 1,200 children found administration of a gum sweetened with xylitol reduced the risk of developing dental caries risk by 73%.
3. Master The Body Children's Probiotic is free from common allergens including milk/casein, wheat/gluten, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, soy, egg, and yeast.
“ Thank you, Dr. Allison, for recommending Probiotics for my daughter. Before taking this - I don't recall a period of time we went without a running nose and constant respiratory issues, especially when seasons changed. Now - I just feel that my daughter has a completely different quality of life! She loves taking the chewable tablets - she says they taste like strawberries and she is the one to remind me I should give them to her before bedtime! THANK YOU - this supplement has made a big difference for us!” I.A., IL
"My boys have been taking your probiotics religiously for the last 2 years. I really feel that it made a difference in their overall health, and my younger son no longer has constipation issues." Andrea M.
"Our chiropractor recommended that my son takes probiotics. We tried quite a few different formulas but my son had a hard time swallowing capsules. I came across information on your site and we are so happy we gave this a try. The chewable form of your probiotic made a difference and we were finally able to get the probiotics in without a fight. Thank you for getting back to us and answering all of our questions as well!" R.H.
