Probiotics at any age

For Kids

We wish to protect them from any harm. These little ones are at the same time resilient but quite fragile. To help our young brave infectious diarrhea and treat eczema, probiotics like Probaclac Children with Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria have proven effectiveness1,2. In addition to supplementation, a varied diet and source of lactic acid bacteria (as found in yogurt and fermented milk) and prebiotics (found in legumes and fruits) is crucial3! Interestingly, the intake of probiotics by the mother will impact the babies’ intestinal flora. It would seem that prenatal supplementation would limit the risk of allergic phenomena in unborn babies4.

For Adults

Adulthood makes us aware of the importance of our habits on our quality of life. Probiotics with Lactocillus rhamnosus strain (such as Probaclac Adult) can help facilitate digestion and improve transit, in addition to decreasing gastrointestinal disorders5. For people with Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome, the Probaclac Extra-Strength supplement with Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium breve is particularly useful. Finally, a probiotic with Saccharomyces boulardii such as Probaclac Medic can very well act against the negative effects of taking antibiotics6.

For Seniors

Health is priceless and the desire of healthy aging is certainly unanimous. Over time, the intestine tends to become lazier and digestive disorders become frequent7. The precious Bifidobacterium bifidum found in Probaclac Adult 50+ regulates intestinal transit to prevent both constipation and diarrhea5. Among other benefits, probiotics stimulate the immune system, thus fighting infection that can seriously impair the health of older people8.
