Aliness Kids Balance is a mix of probiotic bacteria strains form the Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, Streptococcus kind, which was composed with the youngest (above 1 year of life) in mind, in order to support theirs gastrointestinal tract microflora. Having in mind the comfort of the user, dietary preferences and the occurrence of food allergies, the manufacturer chose the form of capsules, created completely from vegetable materials and without the addition of popular allergens (soy, gluten, lactose).
Thanks to the deliberately applied encapsulation technology, microorganisms have been placed in structures that resemble cell membranes, which protect them from annihilation in difficult conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. Capsules are kept in a container which is built from violet glass that limits the access of UV irradiation and preventing form oxidation or decomposition processes.
The composition of this product includes:
Lactobacillus (rhamnosus, paracasei, plantarum, casei) – lactic acid bacteria, which naturally dwell in the area of gastrointestinal tract and female genital tract. Their main task is to oversee the metabolic transformation of fatty acids and glycogen to lactic acid, as well as other organic compounds. What is more, they participate in modulating the action of the HPA axis (hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal), reducing the feeling of stress, tension and helping with rest.
Bifidobacterium (breve, animalis lactis, bifidum, longum) – bacteria of this kind are the first to dwell in the gastrointestinal tract of newborns, and because of that they have a positive effect on the development of tiny organisms from the first days of life. Inside the gastrointestinal tract they produce weak, organic acids that inhibit the growth of pathogenic strains responsible for the emergence of dangerous infections – C. difficile, H. pylori, E.coli or C. albicans.
Streptococcus thermophilus – bacteria from the viridans group, which, as a matter of fact are the only representatives of this group that do not naturally occur in the organism, yet they support its functioning in every field.
The essence of microflora, regardless of age
The organism of a young human is undergoing continuous growth processes, the implementation of which requires the fullness of health and preservation of inter-systemic homeostasis. Frequent infections, caused by weak defense forces of the immune system, affect the overall development
Hardly any people realize that an adult human is dwelled by many probiotic microorganisms. The number of bacterial and fungal cells surpasses the number of organism’s cells many times over. They are not useless, since they fulfill strictly defined functions – they participate in immune reactions, inhibit the production of toxins and their penetration through mucosal barriers, among others, and also participate in the production of vitamin K.
The composition of the microflora is influenced by many factors, including maintaining a diet – supporting or hindering its development. Children often eat foods that can facilitate the growth of undesirable strains. What is more, frequent infections treated with antibiotics lead to effective sterilization of the gastrointestinal tract and the development of pathogenic bacteria.
Not only the health of intestines
A common problem in children is the occurrence of a colic, so a suddenly starting abdominal pain with a not-well-determined cause. Sometimes they are accompanied by nausea, vomiting and even diarrhea. These symptoms are associated with food poisoning and the intrusion of pathogenic bacteria into the intestinal lumen. Symptoms can be really arduous because they exclude a child from everyday activities.
The prevention of such incidents is possible thanks to the introduction of supplementation with probiotic bacteria into the everyday diet. By colonizing the large intestine, they prevent the occurrence of inflammatory conditions, which can lead to pain and digestive problems. What is more, the IgA antibodies which are produced by them are acting against pathogenic bacteria.
Not many people realize the role of intestines in the regulation of nerve functions. Due to the rich innervation, comparable with the number of nerve cells of the spinal cord, they are called the visceral brain. It was shown that the proper composition of the microbiome determines homeostasis on the intestinal-brain axis, stimulating, among others, good frame of mind – and as it is commonly known, a happy child is a well-behaved child.
Often, seasonal allergy episodes begin in childhood period and last for many, many years. Allergic rhinitis, commonly known as hay fever, is a condition that is quite burdensome for both the child as well as for the parent. It has been observed that the supplementation with probiotic bacteria may slightly alleviate the symptoms associated with the hyperactivity of the immune system. This can be explained by the fact that they lead to an increase in the anti-inflammatory level of interleukin 10 – a mediator involved in the communication between immune cells.
The addition of prebiotic
Each cell, in order to grow, needs nutrients, from which it is ready to obtain energy. Compounds specifically designed for bacteria are called prebiotics. They are most often a mixture of sugar derivatives – polysaccharides, which decomposed into the basic parts, are included into the metabolic pathways of microorganisms.
Fibregum™ Bio LAW is one of the prebiotic formulations, which is characterized by a low water activity of the carrier (it is the shell of the capsule). Because of that, the water available in large quantities in the gastrointestinal tract does not penetrate to the interior of the formulation, where it could become a suitable environment, serving for the activation of antibacterial enzymes. What is more, the lack of inulin, replaced by polysaccharides which are metabolized at a slower rate, protects from the discomfort feeling in the form of flatulence and overflow, which in a child could be manifested as colic pain.
To sum up, Aliness Kids Balance is a formulation created with the youngest in mind, in order to support the functioning of their gastrointestinal tract, as well as immunoregulation. Taking care of the proper composition of the microflora could be a key element in the fight against symptomatic hypersensitivity of the intestines as well as seasonal allergies.
