Consistent with its mission to continuously provide the most quality and family-friendly health and wellness products, PascualLab launches its newest pedia product ProBio7 Kids. ProBio7 Kids is a probiotic food supplement powder with 7 probiotic strains, that goes beyond improving digestive health¹ — it also helps augment the body’s immune system.
With the pandemic still looming over our heads, everyone, including children, continue to be susceptible to attacks from COVID-19 and its new variants, as well as other viruses that can cause infections.
While probiotic strains are more widely known to aid gut health by increasing a child’s probiotic diversity, ¹ they also help the body’s response against viruses and bacteria.² Studies show that children who take probiotics are less likely to get colds and flu, thereby reducing their absences from school.³
Moreover, some studies also show that probiotics even help boost the growth of children as it aids digestion of nutrients, ⁴ especially of lactose. ⁵
