Pure Encapsulations Probiotic 123 Pediatric Formula (Dairy-free), 80g
Pure Encapsulations Probiotic 123 is a pediatric probiotic formula for children ages 1 and up.
Probiotic 123 provides 2.25 billion CFU naturally occurring, dairy-free beneficial bacteria Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium lactis to support gastrointestinal and immune health.
Animal and human studies have indicated that L. acidophilus supports the mucosal lining of the G.I. tract, helping to maintain healthy G.I. barrier function. Several trials involving children have also revealed that mixed probiotic bacteria supplementation helps support healthy yeast balance and G.I. comfort. Another study involving almost 200 children suggested that a probiotic supplement containing bifidobacteria provided support for occasional diarrhea.
Research indicates that probiotics support immune health, enhancing B cell, T cell and NK cell function. Additionally, they support healthy cytokine production, particularly in the colon. One placebo-controlled 2-month study involving 27 infants indicated that probiotic supplementation promoted healthy serum CD4 levels and skin comfort.
Lactobacillus acidophilus (La-14 strain), Bifidobacterium bifidum (Bb-06 strain), and Bifidobacterium lactis (Bl-04 strain) are dairy-free and soy-free strains. Pure Encapsulations probiotic products contain a unique form of rice starch produced through a natural enzymatic process. This proprietary starch has been extensively tested and is added to protect the viability of the probiotic organisms.
