Innovative concept of safety and efficiency in infant’s colic pain management

Innovative concept of safety and efficiency in infant’s colic pain management


A child suffering from colicky pain can be described as one who, given he is healthy and well fed, has moments of irritability, nervousness and/or crying which last for more than three hours per day, in more than three days per week throughout a 3 week period. Although there is no known cause, research has shown that there are a series of factors which can be held responsible for cramps, thus sustaining the theory of intestinal flora disruption.

Infants with cramps show microbiota changes, meaning less species of Lactobacillus and more gram-negative bacteria. Medical studies confirm that probiotic intake reduces the infant’s colic incidence. The homofermentative probiotic intake significantly reduces 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 homofermentative 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.
