Baby probiotics work differently instead of destroying the bad bacteria your baby might pick up at the playground  (or from another baby’s runny nose), probiotics support gut health, the development of a balanced microbiota, and immune system. The average person has more bacterial cells in their body than human cells.,

    These cells are critical for all aspects of living well:

    They’ve been shown to aid with controlling weight gain.


    • They help regulate mood — 90 percent of serotonin is produced in the gut and not the brain..
    • They produce key vitamins that help fend off illness and infection from bad bacteria.
