Riley has been taking Culturelle Kids! Probiotics Culturelle Kids! Probiotics for 7 days now and I can actually tell that there has been a difference in his behavior. Since he is only 4, it's still hard for him to explain to me if he can tell a difference. He will say yes, but sometimes children just tell you the answer they think you want to hear. So I am basing my opinions off of his daily behaviors.
Before taking the Culturelle Kids! Probiotics, Riley would complain throughout the day frequently about stomach aches. It would mainly be after he ate dairy or anything that would cause gas. He is not lactose intolerant that I know of, but I do believe he has a sensitive stomach. But, now that he has been taking the probiotics for a week now, I can tell a huge difference in his complaining. It is very rare that he mentions his belly hurting. This is great because it not only gives Riley relief, but also myself and Kyle. When your child complains of pain anywhere, you want to help them and sometimes, when you can pinpoint what is wrong, you can't help. So, we have been a much happier home!
I highly recommend trying out Culturelle products. I have been taking the Culturelle Digestive Health capsules and have also noticed a difference in bloating. I don't drink much soda at all, but occasionally I will grab a diet soda if we are out and today, I had one and didn't feel nearly as bloated as I normally do! I was really excited because I hate that bloated uncomfortable feeling that you get while you are out.
For anyone that has not read my previous Culturelle posts or watched my videos, Culturelle Kids! Probiotics contain Lactobacillus GG which is one of the most widely studied probiotic strains. It helps is safe for regular use and has been shown to alleviates occasional digestive distress while supporting a child's natural defenses. The Kids! Probiotics come in powder packets for weights 25lbs to 50lbs and chewable tablets for weights 50lbs to 100lbs. And for children over 100lbs, they can take the Culturelle Digestive Health Probiotic capsules as directed on package. I love the capsules because you can swallow them or open them up. This is great for people who have a hard time swallowing pills. We are currently using the packets for Riley and they are flavorless, 100% dairy & gluten free! We simply mix them in cold water and he loves drinking them! He even mixes them all by himself. Of course you want to check with your doctor before trying any new products.
I'll be posting another update hopefully tomorrow with a video! Enjoy!
