Normal intestinal flora of children, need special attention

A newborn finalizes the process of forming their intestinal flora in the first three months of life.

For natural born baby the colonization is made firstly from vaginal mother’s flora who shares many similarities with the normal flora of the digestive tract. Thus, they benefit from a forming process faster and more balanced.

Children born by caesarean section develop their normal saprophytic flora harder. They are colonized with germs from the environment different from mother’s flora.

If we consider that probiotics were discovered by an immunologist, we can just starting to make a clear parallel between immunity and intestinal tract health.

Gastrointestinal problems in the first months of life are mostly related to the disturbance of intestinal flora. Colic is one of the most common disorders in infants. 25% of infants fed with breast milk or milk powder have a period of colic at least once.

The homofermentative probiotic intake significantly reduces infants’ with cramps crying periods in comparison to placebo. This is because they have the capacity to switch and antagonize the pathogenic bacteria, without producing gas, in comparison to other bacteria.

In order to be efficient in the infants’ cramp management, the probiotics need to be able to cross the digestive system’s physic-chemical barriers, and thus join the intestinal mucosa.

 

Bio Sun Colic, contains two types of homofermantative strains, identical to the ones of the newborn’s digestive tract, which have an antagonist role over a wide range of pathogenic bacteria, an anti-inflammatory effect, without bloating and gas induction and a 95% survival rate after being exposed to similar conditions as the ones in the infant’s gastric tract.
