Are probiotics safe to give my kids?

Florify for Kids - Armor on the Inside

Is it safe to give my child probiotics?

Yes! Research suggests that probiotics are generally safe for healthy kids to take.1 In fact, according to a national study, probiotics are one of the natural products most commonly used by children—ranking right up there with omega-3s from fish oil.2

If your child has a serious illness or a weakened immune system due to an autoimmune disease, we strongly recommend consulting with your child’s doctor before giving your child probiotics or any other supplement.

Florify for Kids is everything you want in a children’s probiotic supplement.

Digestive and immune support.

Developed specifically for children, Florify for Kids gives your child great immune and digestive-health support.* That’s the extra protection anyone would want for their children—at school or play. Florify for Kids fortifies them from the inside, giving them the freedom to go about the business of being a child.

The right amount.

Each dose of Florify for Kids contains a guaranteed five billion active bacteria cultures (called CFUs) meant to flourish inside your child’s gut microbiome and replenish and maintain the healthy balance of good bacteria every child needs. That’s enough CFUs to deliver each probiotic strain in effective amounts.

Multiple, diverse probiotic strains.

Just like Florify® (our probiotic for grown-ups), Florify for Kids delivers probiotics in seven diverse strains—including Bifidobacterium lactis and Lactobacillus acidophilus. Compare that to Culturelle®†, a leading national brand, which provides just one probiotic strain. Seven strains is a big deal! Melaleuca knows that with probiotics especially, more diversity brings better results.
