Picture this. You\u2019re sitting at the playground watching your kids play and then, something unusual catches your eye. A sudden realization hits you. Come to think of it, there are a few children that you usually see at the playground, and they never seem to have a meltdown. The parents are sitting and chatting animatedly, everyone seems relaxed and happy. It\u2019s like they\u2019re on some kind of prescription that oils the parenting machine and keeps their children in-sync. Everyone is having a good time, and the kids are squealing in excitement, tossing balls or getting on rides and playing well with each other. It looks like a dream and I have to pinch myself. That was real. I want me some of that. Is there a secret parenting club that I can join, or get on some of the meds they\u2019re on? In my quest for healthy, well-adjusted kids, the most common topic (among others) that trend on Google is probiotics. In a nutshell, probiotics are bacteria that provide health benefits when consumed by improving the gut flora. Simply put, it promotes a balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut. A healthy gut absorbs nutrients and expels waste better, so it is thought that a conducive environment equates a body that is conditioned to run on an optimized mode. That kind of makes sense. Babies who are prone to colic or tummy aches may find relief in a regular dose of probiotics to prevent them from backing up. When the body is functioning properly, the organs do their job and the rest just falls into place. That may explain the happy and calm scene in the playground. As I dug deeper, other benefits that constantly made the list include: \t Improve gut\u2019s health Probiotics work by giving your gut a boost of good bacteria and balances the gut flora. The spillover benefits have been extolled earlier and we can\u2019t emphasize more on the importance of balance in the gut. \t Reduce the severity of diarrhea Research has suggested that selected strains of probiotics ingested in suitable doses have been found to be an effective treatment for infants and young children in developed countries who are afflicted with acute diarrhea. These strains are namely Lactobacillus GG, Saccharomyces boulardii, Lactobacillus reuteri. Probiotic consumption of at least 5 billion\/d reduced the duration of diarrhea by about a day. We recommend that you consult your physician before embarking on self-medication. \t Intestinal problems - irritable bowel syndrome or inflammatory bowel disease There has been a growing interest in using probiotics as a treatment option for IBS and IBD in recent years. Microbiome provides the metabolic fuel needed for the growth of beneficial microorganisms (prebiotics), or by providing children with probiotics. \t Allergies and eczema With so much talk about maintaining the balance of your gut with probiotics, it goes without saying that the optimization of the gut promotes your organs to work more effectively. By cleansing the body of toxins which may trigger allergies and eczema, probiotics can claim some glory in that aspect. Personally, my toddler has seen a reduced flare of eczema since consuming probiotics. It has worked wonders so please check with your Pediatrician to discuss this option of prevention. \t Digestive Disorders Children are notoriously picky eaters and a good dose of probiotics will help them go in the washroom when they insist on a poor diet.
