Supplemented foods such as yogurt and other fermented vegetables contain living microorganisms. These microorganisms are called probiotics. The living bacteria in yogurt are lactobacillus, which helps to keep the bacterial balance in the human body.
Generally, the word probiotic means promoting life. As the name sounds, probiotics provide some serious health benefits for your toddler. 90% of people think that bacterias only cause diseases and other health-related problems. That is somewhat true, but probiotics are the healthy bacterias that help to keep your toddler’s gut healthy.
Probiotics decrease the number of harmful bacterias in the gut of your toddler. These bacterias can cause inflammation and different infections that will affect the health of your baby severely.
Following are the diseases that are caused due to these bacterias:
These severe infections can be cured if your child is taking the right amount of probiotics.
So how probiotics are helpful for your toddler? Research proves that probiotics improve the immunity of your gut and your oral health, and it also helps to control eczema.
If your child is suffering from illness such as a bacterial infection or any other problem, you should look for proper treatment. Relying on probiotics is not a good option when proper medical treatment is required.
Here are some of the many benefits of incorporating probiotics into your toddler’s diet.
When probiotics enter the intestinal, they work to kill harmful bacterias in the body. This act directly influences the immune response of your toddler. This process prevents all the pathogenic microbes from spreading diseases, thus boosting their immune system and helping them resist infections such as flu, cold, etcetera.
Probiotics not only boost up the immune system of your child, but they also help to enhance the gastrointestinal health of toddlers. Probiotics help to reduce the rate of bacterial infections and other bowel diseases such as constipation and diarrhea.
Recent research on probiotics revealed that they help to control dental problems as well. If your child is facing oral issues such as bad breath, then probiotics may help to enhance their oral health. Probiotics such as lactobacillus and bifidobacterium reduce the growth of streptococcus mutans, which is responsible for bad breath, gum problems, and cavities. Lactobacillus can also kill the bacteria that cause tooth decay in children.
