Review: Florastor Kids, a Natural Probiotic

by Dagmar Bleasdale on April 30, 2009

Some medicines, certain diseases, travel, and stress can cause an upset of the balance of microorganisms in our body.

Florastor Kids is a probiotic that can protect your child’s intestines from “bad” organisms.

Florastor Kids is a clinically tested, natural, yeast-based probiotic that aids in the growth of good microorganisms in the intestines. It helps maintain or restore optimal intestinal health and promotes healthy bowel function. It also helps to eliminate or prevent diarrhea by promoting the growth of good microbiota.

Unlike acidophilus, which is “good” bacteria, Florastor Kids is “good” yeast. It is unique because it can be safely given to babies and children from the age of two months. Florastor Kids is a great-tasting powder that can be dissolved in beverages, including infant formula, or soft foods like applesauce.

Florastor Kids is okay to take with antibiotics. It can help prevent and manage antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD) and Traveler’s diarrhea. Florastor Kids has been extensively researched, prescribed and recommended by health care professionals, resulting in billions of doses being taken over the past 50 years. There are many published studies supporting the use of Florastor Kids. Dr. James Sears, board-certified pediatrician, author and co-host of the CBS-TV show “The Doctors,” has recommended Florastor Kids to patients for years.

My Thoughts:
I believe in making sure your body functions at an optimal level, and I take acidophilus every week and also give the kids version to Landon once in a while.

It is great that I can now also give him a product that maintains healthy intestinal function that is approved for small children, and I will keep Florastor Kids in mind if he has diarrhea.

The powder dissolved completely in his juice or water, and he didn’t even know it was in there.

{I was given one free box of Florastor Kids Probiotics for this review and one to give away. The giveaway is now closed. I was not compensated in any other way and this is my honest opinion.}

Why We Need Probiotic Supplements

Our bodies are designed to function best with millions of friendly probiotic bacteria living in our intestinal tract. In the past, we replaced the probiotics in our system by constantly through eating organic vegetables grown in dirt that was rich with soil-based organisms or drinking raw milk straight from the cow. I myself remember walking into the garden, pulling up young carrots, brushing as much dirt off them as possible and eating them on the spot. Think of the probiotics that were going into my system before I could wash them down the kitchen drain or boil them for 15 to 20 minutes.

Today we need probiotic supplements because there are so many influences that prevent us from getting the probiotics our bodies need.

* Today, at least in the United States, many people eat a horrible diet composed of highly processed foods that are filled with chemicals and simple sugars and carbohydrates. Potato chips and Oreo’s are utterly devoid of anything living as are most of the boxed and prepared foods sold in the grocery stores.
* Because of the modern agricultural practices, such as the heavy use of pesticides and fertilizers, the soil-based microorganisms are no longer living in the dirt of most farms. We need probiotic supplements to replace what is missing in our food.
* The use of antibiotics (remember the “anti” means “against” biotics) directly kills the all bacteria in our intestinal tract.
* Drinking chlorinated water destroys our intestinal flora. The reason we put chlorine in the water is because it is able to kill bacteria and, unfortunately, it gets the good ones along with the bad when we drink it.
* The medical treatment of radiation and chemotherapy also destroys our intestinal flora as well as damaging our immune systems. Any course of chemotherapy absolutely must be followed with heavy doses of probiotic supplements.
* Farm animals are continuously fed antibiotics to keep diseases down. When people eat them they also are taking in these antibiotics which then harm the beneficial bacteria in their systems.
* Many people who are concerned with health use enemas and colonics for detoxification. These practices can wash some of the good bacteria out of their systems.
* Alcoholic beverages tend to harm probiotics by killing them directly, encouraging harmful bacteria and yeast overgrowth.

I’ve dedicated my life to natural healthy organic foods, supplements and helping to educate consumers on what we need in our bodies and what we should avoid at all cost. Most consumer don’t know most of the things that can keep them healthy. With the very unhealthy mass produced, genetically modified, chemically enhanced foods and supplements on the market, consumers need the proper information to start avoiding all those products. When there is enough demand for high quality foods and supplements, then we will be able to tackle America’s Health problems. Until then, it will be very hard to fight big business and stop them from adding harmful ingredients and making products by un-natural mean just to stretch them further and last longer in-order to protect their bottom line. We have the power as the consumer and it’s all about spreading small amounts of information like this article to help educate everyone. You can follow the link “My Name Above” to my store and also join my facebook fan page from the link on my store where you canpost information and take information to post in great blogs like this. I hope to write another article soon and keep posting great content in blogs like this.

Thanks and keep up the great work!!

I wanted to try probiotic for my kids as my kids often complain of stomach pain and the doctor asked me to give them yogurt, but my kids don’t like yogurt and so I want to try this. If this will help I will give it to them every day, so I want to first try it out.

I have just subscribed to your blog – I was meaning to anyway and then saw your giveaway which sounds right up my alley. It looks like we are into the same sorts of things. Would love to connect with you on twitter. I’m @bfmom.

I have wanted to try probiotics for a long time. my kiddos have sensetive bowels so certain foods and medicines are bad for their tummies! Im a total hippie when it comes to medications so if I can get them to use natural healers I try! Happy tummies make happy babies!

I just subscribed to your blog and would like to have my little ones try Florastor Kids. I used to give them a probiotic but stopped months ago after we moved since I could no longer find the one they were taking. Thanks!

Cool! Thanks for letting me know about the Florastor Kids giveaway. I’d love to try it. I tweeted about this, too (@ForMyKidsLLC). Of course, I tweeted with mixed feelings because that just lessens my chance of winning. ;-)


Melissa April 30, 2009 at 8:48 PM

I tweeted!

Don’t enter me into the contest, but that does sound like a wonderful product. I love all natural medications. They are the only things that are safe for our little ones. I also take acidophilus but I take it every single day due to my history of digestive problems. It is also recommended that pregnant women take acidophilus along with a regular daily prenatal vitamin. (the other reason why I take it on a regular basis) Good luck with your giveaway!

Wow, I was just talking to a friend who told me about this today- she started her son on probiotics a few weeks ago and I want to try it. Thanks for the giveaway!
