Vivomixx for children
Each individual is born with a specific and unique microbiota. Initially sterile, the baby inherits the good and bad bacteria of its mother during birth and passage through the vaginal canal, and by maternal milk. The microbiota slowly develops and by 3 years of age, the child can be said to have a mature intestinal flora that will accompany him throughout his life.
A balanced microflora is made of a majority of healthy bacteria, including microbiotics, which help digestion and assimilate nutrients. A healthy microbiota is important for the good physiological growth of children.
Some factors can alter the intestinal flora and trigger an imbalance in children:
- A bad intestinal health of the mother during pregnancy and the transmission of an imbalanced flora at birth
- Birth by cesaerean section which does not allow proper colonisation with the maternal flora
- Absence of breast feeding
- Nutrition and lifestyle
- Environmental factors
These imbalances can hinder the smooth development of the infant and of the child causing:
- Intestinal problems such as abdominal pain, cramps, colic, bloating, altered transit .
- Fatigue, allergies
Vivomixx® helps keep a balanced intestinal ecosystem, thus supporting a healthy growth of your child.
