What is Probiotic and How I used it with Kai to Improve Digestive Health
When Kai was an infant, she was a happy baby except for tummy issues. Her gas problem was very bad and seemed so uncomfortable. Many times I had no idea what was wrong with her until she worked out a toot. As time went on, I began noticing the telltale signs: bloated tummy, thrusting tongue, face turning red. Her tummy issues became so disruptive we saught help from our pediatrician. We were told to perform a series of gas exercises that resemble baby yoga. Also it was suggested to us a pro-biotic will help. The combination of the two actually seemed to help her feel better!
WHAT IS PROBIOTIC
If you aren'y familiar with probiotics, don't worry, it's not scary! I was totally clueless before but I'm sure you have seen it everywhere. Probiotics are living bacterias that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. Probiotics in infants are used to improve immunity and digestive health. I even take a probiotic an an adult to help my gut feel healthy
One key term to understand here is B. infantis. It is a good bacteria that aids in complete breast milk nutrients absorption. Studies suggest that babies with a good amount of B. infantis bacteria inside have lower inflammation, lower risk of diabetes and allergies.
Unfortunately according to Evivo's website, studies have shown that women are no long passingB. infantis through to their babies. This is where Evivo comes in. It is a probiotic clinically proven to restore the baby's levels of B. infantis therefor restoring gut health. It aid in the development of the baby's immunities and can lead to many health benefits down the line.
