Each great tasting orange tablet is an easy way to ensure that your child is getting the necessary friendly flora to maintain a healthy balance in the intestines. Under normal conditions, trillions of bacteria exist in the intestines. As part of the body's defenses, they help maintain good health by preventing harmful microorganisms from infiltrating the body. Medications taken to combat illness or infection can reduce the number of beneficial bacteria as an unwanted side effect. To maintain the healthy balance, add Primadophilus for Kids chewable tablets to your child's daily health regimen.
