How do you know if you need to supplement with probiotics?
Were you born by a normal vaginal birth where your mother took ZERO antibiotics during her pregnancy and labor? True False
Were you breastfed for the 18-24 months of your life? True False
Have you never taken an antibiotic? True False

If you answered “FALSE” to any of the first 6 questions…it is virtually a CERTAINTY that you are DEFICIENT in probiotics. If you answered “TRUE” to the very last question, you probably do not need to take an extra supplement of probiotics.
…which means you really need to supplement with healthy, high-quality probiotics! The ones I love and trust for myself and my family are Innate Choice Probiotic SufficiencyTM. They have over 30 billion live bacteria per serving with 9 different bacteria needed in the human gut!
DOSAGE for CHILDREN: ½ capsule per 40 lbs of body wt. Capsules can be taken as is or broken, emptied into a drink and then consumed at the end of a meal.
Probiotics are BEST utilized when taken with fresh fruits and veggies which act as “pre-biotics!”
Common signs of severe probiotic deficiency: gas, bloating, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, bad breath and body odor; impaired immunity indicated by frequent or prolonged cases of colds and flus; fungal or yeast overgrowths such as Candida, vaginal yeast infections, athlete’s foot, acne, eczema, dandruff, and overall ill-health are also associated with probiotic deficiency.
