Inner Health Skin Shield Kids 60g
Probiotics are fast becoming required nutrients for life based on the fact that we carry kilograms of bacteria in our fecal matter. Through research, specific species and strains of probiotic bacteria are being found to help not only with our gut health but also with brain function, skin conditions, urinary health, autoimmunity and inflammation. This is why we recommend only the researched strains and specific species of bacteria for certain conditions. Eczema shield is a specific strain of Lactobacillus Rhamnosus LGG which has been shown to reduce the symptoms associated atopic conditions such as Eczema. This strain has also been used in trials to help reduce Allergies as it seems to affect the immune function and in particular hypersensitivity reactions. Probiotics are so important in young children as the immune system and gut are being prepared for a life ahead. We recommend parents give kids this probiotic as a first line treatment of Eczema or Allergy. This product is fairly tasteless and can be easily given to kids. Pregnant mothers who know that Allergies and Eczema run in the family from either mum or dads side can take this throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding as this has been shown in research to reduce the incidence of children developing eczema.
Like all products we stock this passes the quality and efficacy test that we set as practitioners of natural health. Because if there’s not enough in it its not worth taking.
