BalancedBiotic Infant Formula

What Is It?

The Balanced Biotic Infant Formula is a high potency hypoallergenic blend of 5 Lactobacillus species and 5 Bifidobacterium species that is specifically designed to safely meet the metabolic and intestinal support needs of infants up to 2 years of age. These two genera of bacterial microorganisms have been intensively researched for their probiotic health benefits and have been found to minimize the harmful effects of gastrointestinal pathogens, improve digestion and absorption of dietary nutrients, augment intestinal barrier function, lessen enteromucosal inflammation and favorably assist immune responses. All Lactobacillus species in Balanced Biotic Infant Formula produce predominately L(+)-lactic acid that can be safely metabolized by infants. An infants gastrointestinal tract is not fully mature at birth and cannot metabolize the D(-) isomer of lactic acid produced by many lactobacilli. Each species in the Balanced Biotic Infant Formula has been selected based on the scientific literature documenting its safety and crucial importance to the normal development of and infants gastrointestinal and immune system.

 As you may know, children with autism often take quite a lot of nutritional supplements. This is partly because so many of their body systems aren't functioning well on their own, and in addition, their digestive systems often cannot absorb nutrients easily.
