Nordic Naturals Probiotic Gummies Kids is a synbiotic which combines one, carefully selected strain of probiotic bacteria (Bacillus coagulans) with a prebiotic fiber. Every portion provides up to 1,5 billion live microorganisms.
This formulation was designed mainly with children in mind. It can be administered to children who are above the age of 2. There are no contraindications to its use in older children and adults. The supplement comes in the form of tasty, easily soluble chewing gums.
Bacillus coagulans are gram-positive, relatively anaerobic bacteria that have the status of GRAS and are considered as probiotic bacteria. They produce lactic acid and as one of the few species of probiotic bacteria are capable to form endospores, or spore forms, which helps in the effective colonization of the large intestine.
The prebiotic fiber differs from the probiotic in way that it does not contain any bacterial cultures. However, it provides substances that are a medium for beneficial microorganisms. They stimulate the growth and development of beneficial bacterial flora, they also contribute to the sealing of the intestinal barrier.
Restoration of proper bowel movement rhythm
The presented formulation may be helpful in attempts to develop a proper rhythm of bowel movements in children. It performs quite well with troublesome constipations with a functional basis. This problem concerns a large group of pediatric patients, and the etiology of the disease has not been fully understood. In studies conducted with children suffering from functional constipation, a significant improvement was obtained after supplementation with a formulation containing B. coagulans probiotic bacteria and prebiotic fiber.
Researchers suspect that the lack of balance in the colon microflora may play a role in the pathophysiology of chronic constipation. Therefore the interest in B. coagulans and other probiotic bacteria, capable of producing lactic acid, which causes the lowering the pH of the colon, which in turn has a beneficial influence on the peristalsis.
The presented formulation beneficially modulates intestinal microflora and increases the amount of beneficial microorganisms. It is recommended as an adjuvant in antibiotic therapy. Unfortunately, during the treatment with antibiotics, a part of the beneficial bacterial flora is destroyed, which promotes the spread of pathogenic microorganisms. As a result, diarrhea and abdominal pain often occur. This can be avoided by using probiotics.
What is more, in the scientific research, the effectiveness of Bacillus coagulans strains has been proved in preventing the so-called travelers' diarrhea and diarrhea accompanying the irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Probiotics based on this strain can also be used in children suffering from diarrhea caused by rotavirus.
Alleviation of functional abdominal pain
Functional abdominal pain is a very common functional disorder of the gastrointestinal tract that affects children in the school age. The reasons for this phenomenon are not fully understood, therefore there are great difficulties in the selection of effective pharmacological therapy. It turns out that probiotics and prebiotics may be very helpful.
In a randomized, placebo-controlled study, it was shown that synbiotic containing probiotic Bacillus coagulans bacteria and prebiotic fiber effectively relieves abdominal pain of unknown origin in children and adolescents without exhibiting any side effects.
Strengthening of the immunity
It is worth remembering that the immunity of the organism depends in a large extent on the condition of the intestines. A certain number of cells of the immune system (including T and B lymphocytes, macrophages, granulocytes, mast cells) are located within the gastrointestinal tract’s mucosa. Scientific research indicates an existing correlation between the intake of probiotics and a decrease in the tendency of infections incidence.
Better absorption of the nutrients
The presented preparation may contribute to the improvement of the absorption of nutrients, especially minerals such as calcium and magnesium, which are very important for the proper growth and development of the young organism. This is due to prebiotic fiber. Its fermentation in the large intestine results in the formation of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA), which contribute to the lowering of pH and stimulate the proliferation of colon epithelial cells. Under such conditions, mineral salts dissolve much better and are more accessible for the organism.
To sum up, Nordic Naturals Probiotic Gummies Kids is a one-strain dietary supplement, perfect for kids who are above the age of 2. It performs well in the case of common gastric ailments, which affect small patients. It can be used in as a preventive matter as well.
The formulation is based on one strain of probiotic bacteria, which is why it will be perfect for adults and children who have never used probiotics before. It can be used during antibiotic therapy and immediately after treatment.
The supplement is available in the form of soluble chewing gums. A child who is two years old should easily deal with its chewing. However, it should be ensured that the gum is not swallowed, only completely dissolved in the child's mouth.

Calories are the conventional name of the unit expressing the energy value of food, the demand and energy expenditure in human body, which in fact is 1 kilocalorie (1 kcal). 1 kilocalorie is the amount of thermal energy required to heat 1 g of water and 1 degree Celsius. The SI unit of thermal energy is 1 joule (1J), equal to approximately 4,185 kcal.
The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents. Most often Atwater equivalent is used: ratio for protein 4 kcal / g, for carbohydrates 4kcal / g, and for fat - 9kcal / g.
The energy value carried out with the so-called. "Caloric bomb" is equivalent to the physical energy, amounting to 4.1 kcal per 1 g carbohydrate to 5.65 kcal per 1 g protein, 9.45 kcal per 1 g of fat.
Nutritional value, determines the suitability of a food product for realizing life functions of human, the higher it is - the higher bioavailability and lower quantity for consumption for obtaining the effects.
Sodium is an important component of the intracellular fluids, and is a regulator of acid-base balance. Along with potassium affects the proper of growth and provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. The source of acquisition is table salt (NaCl) and bladderwrack, shellfish, bacon, beef, and of plant beets and carrots. People on salt-free diet should avoid, among others, spicy sauces and smoked meats and sausages.
Sodium deficiency is very rare, at heaving sweating after a long effort (e.g. in the marathon).
Excess sodium increases blood pressure (especially for the elderly), edema and increased thirst. Exceeding the daily dose of 14g a day can cause poisoning.
Carbohydrates are an essential nutrient. They are divided into: simple sugars (monosaccharides), disaccharides and polysaccharides. In terms of the human bioavailability of carbohydrates is divided into: digestabe, those which are digested in the gastrointestinal tract by transferring energy to the tissues or cells (such as starch, fructose) and indigestable, resistant to digestive enzymes (e.g. cellulose) . Affects blood glucose levels (glycemic index) and the metabolism of insulin (insulin index). The greatest demand for carbohydrates occurs before physical activity or in the middle of it, because they increase the exercise capacity, consumed after exercise provide regeneration. In the sports diet the absorption rate it is important of carbohydrates and reactions of the organism. Available in mono-preparation supplements and part of the energetic supplements, creatine stacks, nitrogen boosters.
Dosage: according to the statistics of the Institute of Food and Nutrition, carbohydrates should comprise about 50% of daily energy intake. In some diets, used residual carbohydrate consumption, not exceeding 30g / 24h.
Dietary fibre is a mixture of undigested substances and not absorbed by the human body. Due to the properties divided into: insoluble fibre (e.g. cellulose [polysaccharide] found in fruits and vegetables), partially soluble fibre (including hemicellulose occurring with cereal grains and soluble fibre (including pectin, gums, mucilages [polysaccharides]). Dietary fibre affects the digestive system and gastrointestinal system regulating its operation. By filling the stomach (satiety) reduces appetite, lowers triglycerides and cholesterol and consequently can support the weight loss process and maintain a slim body. It also affects blood glucose levels and cleansing the body of toxins. Available in powder formulations (capsules, and powders), mainly containing the soluble fraction (pectin, gums and mucilages) diet and meal replacements.
Dosage: 10-20 grams per day, before or during meals with some water.
Sugars - is the term used to refer to the crystal structure of the carbohydrate (sugar), characterized by a sweet taste. This group includes: sucrose (obtained from sugar cane and sugar beets and natural foods), fruit sugars (fructose) and glucose. Carbohydrate intake should not exceed 10% of the energy consumed during the day meals. Excess intake of sugars leading to diseases, including diabetes, atherosclerosis and obesity. Particular caution should be performed carbohydrate intake by athletes of sculpting disciplines and people on a diet. A greater need for carbohydrates, due being easily accessible sources of energy, may be in the periods before and after workouts and before and after the fight.
