In a recent article in Natural Standards, research is being done with regards to Probiotics use in young children.  “Probiotics are beneficial bacteria (sometimes referred to as “friendly germs”) that help to maintain the health of the intestinal tract and aid in digestion. They also help keep potentially harmful organisms in the gut (harmful bacteria and yeasts) under control. Research suggests that probiotics, especially those in milk or food, may help boost the immune system. However, commercially produced yogurt may not be as effective.”  The article continues to describe the use of L. Reuteri which Joe is considering adding to Probiotic Essentials in the future.  Joe feels this is very news worthy and does believe that with or without L. Reuteri, Probiotics are critical for daily use in most children as well as adults.
