10 Multi-Strain Probiotic Blend

90 Vegetable Capsules OR 150g Powder


Dr. Bo's® Kids Probiotics capsules and powder are a blend of ten beneficial probiotic strains, including L. Acidophilus DDS-1, L. Bifidus, L. Rhamnosus, L. Plantarum, L. Salivarius, B. Longum, L. Bulgaris, B. Lactis, L. Casei and L. Brevis (All Lactose FREE), plus a Prebiotic Blend to naturally help promote the growth of healthy micro-flora.

Many environmental conditions, plus the food and antibiotics we take can cause damage to, or even destroy, the body's delicate balance of probiotic bacteria in the digestive and elimination system. It is the probiotic "friendly flora" that helps us process our food and keep in balance putrefactive bacteria and potential pathogens, including Candida Albicans.

BOTH Kids Probiotics capsules and powder are Gluten FREE, Casein FREE (GFCF), Vegan Formulas. Each Capsule contains over 2 Billion organisms ready to begin the re-colonization process and each serving of the Powder has 10 Billion organisms.

✝It is recommended to refrigerate after opening due to changes in temperature fluctuations, and to avoid high temperature.




More Info

What Are Probiotics?
The term probiotic is derived from the Greek, "For Life," and is used to describe growth-promoting factors produced by microorganisms. These friendly bacteria begin colonizing in a matter of hours or days after our birth. The average human digestive system may contain more than one kilogram of bacteria and various strains of probiotics. Therefore, one's intestinal micro-flora can be considered as a post-natally acquired organ composed of a large diversity of bacterial cells that can perform different functions for the host.

These organisms are influenced and modulated in their composition and function by exposure to environmental factors such as nutrition and lifestyle. Specific components of our intestinal micro-flora, including lactobacilli and bifidobacteria, have been associated with beneficial effects, such as the promotion of gut maturation and integrity, antagonisms against pathogens, and immune modulation.¹

In addition, L. Acidophilus and related probiotic strains help the absorption of calcium, copper, iron, and magnesium. They also help the body produce B-Complex vitamins and Vitamin K. Other strains help improve the balance or homeostasis of these microorganisms.

Not All Probiotics Are The Same
Dr. Bo's Kids Probiotics capsules and powder contain 10 superior and viable strains which are non-dairy, high potency, acid and bile resistant (survives stomach acid), stable at room temperature for two years*, fortified with prebiotics, and packed in vegetable capsules, or jar in powder form.

In addition, these formulas contain patented, DDS-1 culture, which has a long-standing scientific validation and proven ability to colonize in the human gastrointestinal tract. DDS-1 produces enzymes, such as proteases and lipases, which can help the breakdown of proteins and fats.²

Kids Probiotics are also fortified with prebiotics, including Jerusalem artichoke flour and short chain inulin. Prebiotics feed probiotics selectively and enhance their growth in the intestines.

Ingredients
  • L-Acidophilus DDS-1 - Named "Acidophilin," a probiotic with antibiacterial properties produced by DDS-1.
    • Shown to inhibit Clostridium botulinum, Clostridium perfringens, Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilits, Salmonella, enteritidis, Salmonella typhimurium, Staphylococcus aureus, and Staphylococcus faecalis.
    • Additional studies demonstrated the effectiveness of acidophilus in decreasing the carrier state and on the incidence and duration of salmonella and shigella dysentery in children.
    • DDS-1 has the ability to inhibit Helicobacter pylori, the bacterium thought to be responsible for ulcers.
    • Shows positive effect in study against the prevention of recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI). The proposed mechanisms of action include the inhibition of growth and adhesion of pathogens to the vaginal and urethral mucosa (inner lining).
    • DDS-1 was discovered to have cholesterol lowering effects in 1978 by Dr. D.K. Sinha.
    • DDS-1 provides digestive support by producing enzymes such as proteases and lipases which can help breakdown proteins and fat.
  • L. Bulgaricus - a transient bacteria, not a colonizer, but acts as a great help to the resident bacteria that set up colonies in the intestines.
    • L-Bulgaricus is "famous" for alleviating digestive problems (including acid reflux) and taming a runaway appetite.
    • Recommended for overall support of friendly bacteria.
    • Enhances digestibility of milk products and other proteins, produces natural antibiotic substances, inhibits undesirable organisms, maximizes the effectiveness of waste disposal, cleanses the colon without disrupting friendly bacteria, and enhances immune function.
    • Used by Bulgarian doctors to treat gastrointestinal disorders such as entero-colitis.
    • Used to treat people who are struggling with the aftereffects of taking borad-spectrum antibiotics for long periods of time.
    • Has been studied for vaginal herpes (herpes simplex labialis); mouth lesions (aphthous stomatitis); ulcers of the cornea (dendritic ulceration) and genital herpes (herpes progenitalis).
    • For vaginal herpes the success rate was 95%. Most benefitted within three days.
    • Herpes, sores of the mouth, achieved an 80% success rate. Improvements were noted within 24 hours.
    • The success rate for herpes of the cornea was 46%.
  • L. Casei - Reported in Microbiology & Immunology to have the most protective activity (more than any other probiotic) against the potentially lethal Listeria bacteria. About 30% of those infected with Listeria die. Listeria infects shellfish, birds, spiders, and mammoths (including cows) in all areas of the world. Listeriosis is most commonly transmitted through the consumption of contaminated dairy products or raw vegetables. The most common manifestation of listeriosis is meningitis.


  • L. Plantarum - commonly found in sauerkraut, pickles, olives, kimchi, sourdough, cheese, and other fermented plant materials. These bacteria require oxygen, but do not have a respiratory chain or cytochromes. The oxygen consumed ends up as hydrogen peroxide and is likely used as a weapon against competing bacteria.
    • L. Brevis - enhances the immune response which may be attributed to stabilization of the intestinal flora.
      • B. Lactis - research studies show that B. Lactis has significant "immunological" properties. It resists acid digestion, the action of the bile salts and survives the intestinal transit allowing large numbers to reach the colon. Known to help alleviate constipation, prevent diarrhea (especially in children) and decrease chronic inflammation of the sigmoid colon. In addition, its antimicrobial properties decrease the effects of negative bacteria, especially clostridia.
        • L. Rhamnosus - one of the most intensely studied of all probiotic strains. Used in the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders such as lactose intolerance, viral and bacterial diarrhea, adverse effects of abdominal radiotherapy, constipation, inflammation, colon problems and food allergies. Source: Applied & Environmental Microbiology.
          • Demonstrates an increased resistance to yeast infection and urinary tract infection.
          • Shown to inhibit streptococci. Source: European Journal of Oral Sciences.
        • L. Salivarius - has the unique ability to eradicate the dreaded Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori).
          • Traditional treatment of H. pylori infection is with antibiotics, which does not always eradicate the organism and may be accompanied by harmful side effects. H. pylori can become resistant to antibiotics which can create a serious problem later on in treating the infection.
          • Able to produce a high amount of lactic acid and thus completely inhibit the growth of H. pylori and reduce the associated inflammatory response.
          • Effective against pathogenic organisms such as Salmonella typhimurium.
        • B. Longum - able to eliminate harmful nitrates found in foods. It has a unique ability to metabolize or degrade nitrates by an intracellular enzymatic activity. Source: Letters in Applied Microbiology.

        • B. Bifidum - disturbances of intestinal flora in connection with poor peristalsis, organ issues, radiation effects, etc., are usually related to the restriction or disappearance of B. Bifidum. Source: The Journal Immunopharmacology and Immunotoxicology.
          • Supportive therapy for intestinal infections and disturbances. Modifies gut flora to protect the body against the devastation of rotavirus diarrhea. Source: Digestive Diseases & Sciences.
