Did you know there are billions of microbiota inside the intestines that keep the digestive system working properly? An upset in the balance of these microbiota, or flora, can cause intestinal problems, including diarrhea and abdominal discomfort, which can range from moderate to severe. I had heard of these guys in Science class way back in High School but it was only recently that I started thinking about it more and more. As I get older and start thinking about how to keep myself in good health and from watching Jamie Lee Curtis on those yogurt commercials.
Florastor Kids is unique because it can be safely given to babies and children from the age of two months which is something I really like since most other diarrhea medications can't be used that young. Florastor® Kids is a great-tasting powder that can be dissolved in beverages, including infant formula, or soft foods, such as applesauce. Another thing I really like about it is the active ingredient in Florastor Kids has been clinically tested for more than 50 years and the active ingredient in Florastor Kids is mentioned by the World Health Organization for the management of C. diff-associated diarrhea . That says to me it isn't just some fly-by-night product.
Florastor Kids can be used to help prevent and manage antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD), acute gastroenteritis, traveler’s diarrhea and clostridium difficile (C. diff, which is a severe, possibly fatal infection of the colon that can occur after healthy microbiota are wiped out by the use of strong antibiotics, allowing a pathogenic bacteria to thrive; currently being seen more often, as C. diff is on the rise)
Florastor Kids is available in most retail chain pharmacies, and at independent pharmacies. Visit www.florastor.com to find out where to purchase Florastor Kids in your area. It is commonly found in the anti-diarrheal/stomach aid section, and can also be obtained by asking the pharmacist (many stores keep Florastor Kids behind the counter). It can also be purchased online at www.drugstore.com
Recently I was given a sample of Florastor Kids to try with my two year old son, luckily the arrival of my samples coincided with a road trip. Road trips are usually the only time the Little Guy has much trouble in the diaper department. This time I started him on the Florastor a day before our trip and continued for a couple days after we arrived at our destination. He had none of his regular issues while traveling, in fact it was just like we weren't even on the road at all. Florastor kept his system running just like normal, which was a big help to me. When you are traveling you need everything to go as smoothly as possible.
Now you can have your very own sample of Florastor Kids! I was given a second 10-packet box of Florastor Kids (a $12.95 value) to give away to one lucky reader.
