As children grow and develop, their immune and digestive processes must adapt to frequent changes in their diet and environment—while still combating potential illnesses at the same time. Sudden variations in environment, such as daycare or school, can lead to a slew of challenges on a young and developing immune system. In addition, the digestive tract is under constant stress due to the fluctuations in their eating habits.
Just like adults, a child’s immune system is largely located in the gut or stomach. The gut, which is often only thought to be responsible for digestion, houses 70 percent of the cells that make up the immune system. Residing within the gut is the body’s microbiome—a collection of good and non-beneficial bacteria that makeup the digestive ecosystem. A balanced gut microbiome helps support the proper breakdown of food, absorption of nutrients, and acts as a filter to the blood stream. Without a balanced gut microbiome, children may suffer from:
• Digestive complaints
• Immune challenges
• And more
The good news is that there is a way to strengthen and protect your children and their digestive ecosystem from these inevitable daily challenges. Syntol Kids is a scientifically formulated combination of probiotics, prebiotics, and vitamins. It helps provide defense against the many challenges a young immune and digestive system may face.
