Probiotic: Buzzword in my Mommy Circles

Probiotic is the buzzword nowadays in mommy circles when it comes to tummy care for our little ones.  I have mommy groups and when we compare notes, some are into it already, some are getting into it and others are reading up already about it.

When my teen son went on a 6 week trip to China for school purposes, most of the moms sent probiotic as supplement.  When there was a spread of diarrhea cases for my kindergartner, a number of moms commented they give probiotics to their kids to protect their kids from any tummy related problems.

So, what is probiotic exactly?

Probiotics are the good bacteria that are part of our digestive system. They are live microorganisms similar or identical to those found naturally in our body.

It helps maintain the natural balance of organisms in our intestines to prevent gastrointestinal issues like abdominal pain, bloating, gas and diarrhea.  It is claimed that these bacteria are important in maitaining a healthy gut and boosting our immune system.

This is perfect for one of my kids who has a constipation issue, one bowel movement every 4 days!  And, maybe for me too since I feel constantly bloated.

Dutchmill, the makers of my kids’ favorite Yoghurt drink, Dutch Milk, now takes taking care of our gut on a higher scale by introducing Dutch Mill Delight. It is a probiotic drink that contains duo active combination of Pro and Prebiotic fiber. Prebiotic fiber is a plant that helps nourish good bacteria inside the tummy. Probiotic is what we discussed earlier. And fiber, helps food move efficiently through the body.

When probiotic, and prebiotic fiber are combined, it produces longer living good bacteria which makes tummy better and absorbs nutrients faster.

Dutch Mill Delight contains a unique blend of naturally sourced ingredients developed just for our kids’ digestive systems:

  • 2.5 billion CFU’s of Lactobacillus GG, the #1 clinically studied probiotic strain in kids††, to balance intestinal microflora and minimize discomfort while helping get your child’s digestive system back on track.*
  • 3.5 grams of dietary fiber, the equivalent of five prunes, sourced from whole fruit kiwi and inulin – a prebiotic vegetable fiber from chicory root.

Cliché as it may sound, “health is wealth” remains true now more than ever.

Let’s equip our kids and our family with a healthier body and start giving them Dutch Mill Delight because it is just delightfully good J

I made some Dutch Mill frozen pops for dessert.

Dutch Mill Delight is now available in all major supermarkets at 100ml bottle with 5 bottles in a pack for only P40.00. To know more about Dutchmill, please visit their website, FB page and Instagram page.
