Product Spotlight

There is an increased interest in the use of probiotics in children because of the growing evidence suggesting these gut-friendly bacteria may convey numerous health benefits to kids.  Probiotics are the good bacteria already living within us, primarily concentrated in the gastro-intestinal (GI) tract (the gut).  They can also be found in fermented foods such as yogurt, sauerkraut or kefir, but often not in strong enough concentrations to be of full benefit.  Having a healthy gut flora full of good probiotics not only keeps your GI tract humming smoothly, it also aids in keeping your immune system strong, and can aid in mental health.

In our current cough and cold season, it is important to boost the immune system of one of our most vulnerable populations – CHILDREN.  Handwashing and proper nutrition remain the cornerstones of staying healthy this winter, but using evidence-based supplements with clinically proven results play a huge role in preventing illness.  The use of probiotics as a preventative during the winter season, and certainly during and after any course of antibiotics is necessary to keeping your family healthy this season.

MetaKids™ Probiotic provides a proprietary blend of highly viable, pure strains of “friendly” bacteria that have been clinically shown to support immune health. This delicious, naturally grape flavored chewable formula is backed by the Metagenics ID Guarantee for purity, clinical reliability, and safety via scientific identification of strains with established health benefits.

It has been shown in studies to significantly reduce the risk of upper respiratory tract infections (coughs/colds) by 34%, and significantly reduced the duration of these infections by more than 3 days.  This means fewer sick days and missed days of school or daycare for your little ones.

Dosed at 2 chewable tablets once to twice a day, children not only enjoy the fun flavoured chews, but parents enjoy the comfort knowing they’re doing everything they can to not only keep their children’s gut healthy but also boost their immune system.
