Seidylevur® Junior is a symbiotic (a mixture of specific live microorganisms and prebiotic fibre), enriched with Vitamins D3 and B6, which contribute to the normal function of the immune system.
Seidylevur® Junior contains 10 billion live bacteria (1×1010 CFU) per stick, of the species Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG and Lactobacillus reuteri, which, at that concentration and together with 500 mg of yeast (Saccharomyces boulardii), are the probiotic substances supported by the largest amount of evidence and recommended by the World Gastroenterology Organisation and the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition for the prevention and treatment of acute diarrhoea in children, whether or not it is associated with antibiotic use.
Inulin (FOSI) is a non-digestible prebiotic fibre that reaches the colon intact and whose main purpose is to nourish the bacteria that make up the microbiota.
Imbalance of the gut microbiota.
The largest population of microorganisms in the human body is found predominantly in the colon. It is composed of hundreds of species that play a vital role in keeping the digestive system and immune system working properly; they contribute to the production of vitamins K and B and help supply energy, as well as aiding the absorption of minerals such as calcium, iron and magnesium. This varied multitude of colonies of microorganisms is commonly known as the gut flora or microbiota.
Sometimes, the composition of the flora can be altered by antibiotic use, poor diet, stress or weight gain, among other causes. This alteration can lead to the over-proliferation of pathogens that cause gastrointestinal disorders, such as acute diarrhoea.
In most cases, the diarrhoeal process tends to be mild, but when it occurs in children, special care needs to be taken to avoid dehydration.
Numerous scientific reviews have shown the usefulness of probiotics in the prevention and treatment of gastrointestinal disorders. In the case of acute diarrhoea, they can prevent its onset, reduce its duration and/or mitigate its effects.
The specific composition of probiotics in Seidylevur® Junior helps restore and maintain the bacterial flora of the gut and strengthen children’s immune system.
