DN Infant Probiotic (66 Grams)
A multispecies probiotic formula to meet the special needs of infants.
• Formulated for infants up to 2 years
• Free of D(-) isomer of lactic acid-producing species
• Easy to administer powder formula
This hypoallergenic blend of 5 Lactobacillus and 5 Bifidobacterium species is designed to safely meet the metabolic and intestinal support needs of infants and young children. All species in DN Infant Probiotic produce predominantly the L(+) isomer of lactic acid that can be safely metabolized by infants. DN Infant Probiotic is designed to support a normal infant microbiota that can be easily disrupted by cesarean section delivery, formula feedings, antibiotics, toxin exposures, or a variety of other factors.†
Supports normal maturation of an infant’s GI and immune system†
Microbial colonization of the gastrointestinal tract, vital for normal gastrointestinal and immune system development, begins at birth. However, this process can be disrupted by cesarean section delivery, hospitalization, formula feeding, antibiotic use, and various exposures. If an infant is breastfed, a maternal diet lacking in fresh fruits and vegetables can also affect microbial colonization. DN Infant Probiotic offers select probiotic species that support neonatal microbiota balance and healthy GI and immune system maturation.†
Protects microbial balance†
DN Infant Probiotic provides a blend of 10 different probiotic species. Research has shown that diverse probiotic strains are able to favorably shift the balance of gut microbiota towards more beneficial species by competing for nutrients and adhesion sites, producing compounds such as organic acids, hydrogen peroxide and bacteriocins, and stimulating the body’s own healthy immune response.†
Supports healthy immune response†
DN Infant Probiotic supplies five essential Lactobacillus species critical for healthy development of the infant immune system and dendritic cell differentiation. The five Bifidobacterium species provided are normally predominant in the neonatal microbiota and help enhance innate immunity and support healthy immune response.†
Designed for an infant’s unique needs†
An infant’s gastrointestinal tract is not fully mature and cannot metabolize the D(-) isomer of lactic acid produced by certain Lactobacillus species often found in adult probiotics, such as L. acidophilus and L. reuteri. Ther-Biotic for Infants contains Lactobacillus species that predominantly produce the L(+) isomer of lactic acid, the safe form for an infant’s metabolism.
