Infant gastrointestinal microflora develops quickly after birth and is linked to development of the immune system. The first exposure is from the mother, who becomes a primary source of bacterial species found in the developing gut microbiota of the infant, and microbiota composition continues to develop through early childhood.
There’s no getting away from germs and viruses as children grow older. They are everywhere—at day care, school, and public transportation. Supporting a child’s immune system to combat seasonal stressors can be an effective preventive measure. All our HOWARU® probiotics that support pediatric immunity meet our HOWARU® VERIFY protocol.
