    Ultra Flora Kids Care 50g in New Zealand

    Probiotic For Beneficial Gut Flora, Bowel Function And Immune Health In Children


    The probiotic strains in Ultra Flora Kids Care have been shown to:

    •  Maintain beneficial gut flora and bowel function.
    •  Support healthy immunity in children.
    •  Dairy free probiotic and prebiotic combination.


    Clinical Benefits

    • The average Australian and New Zealand child can have up to 10 colds per year, with 70% of children (2 years of age and over) in day care, an environment understood to triple the risk of becoming sick. A randomised, double blind, placebo-controlled trial measured the effect of NCFM® and Bi-07 on immunity in 326 children aged between three to five years old in day care. There was a significant reduction in the incidence and number of sick days (Figure 1) in children taking NCFM® and Bi-07. Daily probiotic supplementation also reduced the use of antibiotics as well as days missed from school and day care. The study demonstrated the combination of NCFM® and Bi-07 worked better than NCFM® alone. Known for its immune-modulating actions, LGG® has also been shown to down regulate the immune system, specifically exerting a modulatory effect via butyrate producing bacteria, in addition to down-regulating regulatory T cells thought to be involved in allergy.
    • Ultra Flora Kids Care is scientifically formulated with extensively researched strains that have been validated results to support gastrointestinal health and bowel function. LGG® is one of the world's most researched strains, with over 30 studies in children. This strain has a balancing effect in microbial composition, increasing lactobacilli levels and bifidobacteria species, stimulating short chain fatty acid (SCFA) production, while also normalising and restoring the intestinal mucosal barrier. Utilising specific prebiotics (i.e. fructooligosaccharides) and probiotic strains, such as LGG®, NCFM® and Bi-07 provides an array of benefits for children. This combination supports prebiotic metabolism, colonic function and regularity, as well as healthy microbiome composition; thereby assisting immune responses including minimising risk of inflammatory issues, pathogenic activity and allergies.
    • If children have been taking a course of antibiotics, Ultra Flora Kids Care may assist in restoring healthy flora levels that have been disrupted. Research undertaken in 2015 during the winter period found that 51% of 0 to 4 year olds took at least one antibiotic. LGG® has been shown to reduce the use of antibiotics for common infections in both infants and children. Further to this, a 2018 Meta-analysis of infants and children who receive probiotics (including LGG® ) to prevent acute illnesses had a lower risk of being prescribed antibiotics, relative to those who received a placebo.

    As a precaution: Safety has not been conclusively established during pregnancy. Practitioner discretion is advised when prescribing for use in pregnancy due to the following cautions:


    Pre-eclampsia: A meta-analysis of four clinical trials shows that taking probiotics during pregnancy increases the relative risk of pre-eclampsia.


    The specific effects of Lactobacillus rhamnosus (LGG®) are unclear from this analysis.


    Not all cautions and contraindications are listed.
