As a parent the last thing you want to do is give your child something potentially toxic or dangerous, yet this is often the case when it comes to nutritional supplements. Even if you're a health conscious and well informed parent harmful ingredients may be sneaking into your children's bodies through something as well-intentioned as a vitamin, mineral, essential fatty acid or probiotic supplement!. Highly processed, GMO, and chemically derived ingredients are surprisingly all too common in the supplement industry.  These ingredients include pharmaceutical glazes, waxes, glues, preservatives such as parabens and sodium benzoate, synthetic lubricants, hydrogenated corn, soy and cottonseed oil, chemical food dyes, talcum powder, magnesium stearate, GMO derived maltodextrin, and more. While this sounds like a chemical cocktail (because it is!), these products are marketed as health-promoting, and these toxic ingredients are even included without reservation in supplements for children.  However, that being said there are a handful of companies out there doing it right and creating organic, truly pure, whole food supplements free of all harmful ingredients. Sunbiotics is one of them.

Sunbiotics is the maker of the worlds most pure, completely vegetarian, certified organic probiotic supplement on the market and they've just come out with a probiotic powder specific to children. Sunbiotics Just4Kids is a blend of 5 highly potent non-dairy probiotic strains in a ratio specifically suited for the GI tracts of children. The following probiotic strains are included: Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Bifidobacterium Bifidum, Bifidobacterium Lactis, Bifidobacterium Longum, and Lactobasillus Plantum. In addition to the actual strains of probiotics the only other ingredients you'll find are organic, low temperature dehydrated heirloom fruit powder, and organic yacon root. Nothing else is added, pure and simple. The product currently comes in two versions that any child will love: Apple and Banana. Both flavors are sweet and delicious and blend easily into juices and smoothies, can be incorporated into raw energy bars, bliss balls or no bake cookies, and can even be sprinkled over cereal,  oatmeal, yogurt, and chopped fruit. The product is also
enhanced by the addition of a prebiotic. Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients that help support healthy probiotic activity, and are often times a missing link in todays probiotic market. The development team at Sunbiotics was sure to address the issue in the most organic and natural way possible by utilizing yacon root. Yacon is a South American superfood root vegetable that contains a form of sugar called oligosaccharide. This sugar isn't utilized by our bodies for energy,
however the beneficial bacteria in our GI system love it and thrive on it. The inclusion of this ingredient serves to increase the potency and efficacy of the product.

Probiotics have gotten a lot of attention lately, and for good reason! They are quintessentially one of the foundations of our health, if not THE foundation. Our very existence is completely dependent on the symbiotic relationship between our bodies and the vast quantity of beneficial microbes within us. The truth of the matter is that we have more bacteria cells within us than actual human ones. Probiotics, while microscopically small and silent in their activities, are literally helping to sustain our very existence. They are completely necessary in the production and assimilation of crucial nutrients such as B12 and vitamin K that we must have in order for our nerve and blood cells to function properly. They help us fully break down and absorb our food and act as our primary weapon against the invasion of pathogens thus playing a huge role in our overall immunity. The inclusion of a daily probiotic in a child's diet only makes sense since they are still in the process of building their immune systems to full capacity. It is surely one of the most important things one can do for their child when the goal is to foster a fully healthy and vibrant human being. Building up a good supply of probiotics within the GI tract will strengthen the entire system, preparing the child's immune system for contact with pathogenic bacteria, viruses and other stressors. It's best not to wait until flu season to start introducing
probiotics. A daily dose over time will have a much more potent effect.

 A health supplement should be health promoting and non toxic, not chemical and GMO laden. With products such as  Sunbiotics Just4Kids there is no reason to turn to lower grade, less effective and potentially harmful supplements for our children. They can't yet choose exactly what to put in their bodies, rather they must rely on their parents to make the best choices available. Sunbiotics is there to support health conscious parents everywhere in being able to offer the most pure and effective probiotics to their children for a robustly healthy future!
