Bacteria in our food, usually is a bad thing, such as, E. coli and other harmful bugs. But today, we are discovering a whole new world of friendly bacteria, called Probiotics (the term is derived from the Greek word meaning "for life".) In fact, last year alone there was an increase of 140% in the launch of new probiotic fortified products.
Here in America, we have done a great job scaring parents to death regarding protecting our children from harmful bacteria. In fact, we have done such a great job that we fail to truly understand the important role that such microbes play in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. But, the latest research shows the vital role that exposure to friendly (good) bacteria plays in helping to decrease a child's susceptibility to infections and allergies.
As one professor from Harvard Medical School puts it, "Probiotics appear to communicate with the cells in our intestines to turn on antibodies to fight infections. This cross-talk helps rev up our immune response so we're better prepared to deal with invading bacteria and viruses that could make us sick."
Additionally, a seven-month study consisting of 570 day care children, conducted by a Finnish research group, found that the daily intake of a probiotic milk reduced the number and severity of respiratory infections and the need for antibiotics with the children participating in the study.

BODY BIOTICSÂ® CHILDREN'S SBO Probiotic Supplement Formula has been enhanced with the oldest known SBO (Soil Based Organisms) Proprietary Probiotic blend. For nearly 25 years adults have been experiencing the health benefits of this amazing product and now we are offering the same powerful benefits to your children.
NOW, with the BODY BIOTICSÂ® CHILDREN'S SBO Probiotic Supplements Chewable Tablets, parents around the world can begin to fight back and give their children the added protection of these friendly microbes. Formulated to help reduce toxins, restore friendly bacteria, work to assist the body to assimilate essential nutritive elements, and restore and strengthen proper immune function.
What Are SBO's? (Soil Based Organisms) SBO's are beneficial soil bacteria that were a normal part of our diet until the end of the 19th century. Around that time, the introduction of pesticides, chemicals, and food processing diminished the daily "farm to table" ingestion of raw fruit and vegetables containing these SBO's. When ingested as a natural part of our daily food source, these friendly organisms acted as a buffer to safeguard the natural intestinal flora (friendly bacteria.) They produced benefits in the body, such as the natural production of our own antibodies, improved digestion, greater absorption of nutrients, and most importantly, they worked to rid the body of disease causing pathogens (disease causing organisms) and other deadly toxins.
The BODY BIOTICS SBO Probiotics Supplement Proprietary Blend present in our CHILDREN'S SBO Prebiotic Probiotic Formula, functions in a very similar fashion as in nature.
This proprietary blend provides an entire army of friendly endogenous and non-endogenous bacteria to fight against the invasion of unfriendly pathogens in the gastro-intestinal tract. When these dormant foreign but friendly, non-toxic, bacteria are activated with an aqueous solution, such as juice or water, they multiply by the billions colonizing along the entire intestinal tract.
The SBO Probiotic Blend used in Life Science Products formulas is unique, in that at the point of culturing, these vital organisms are rendered into a "State of Dormancy." This proprietary technology, supported by a substrate of "life sustaining" nutrients including a full spectrum of vitamins, minerals and trace elements, protect and nourish these organisms until activated with an aqueous solution, such as juice or water. Once ingested, they multiply into billions of colonizing organisms and begin to populate along the entire intestinal tract, working to rid the body of disease causing pathogens and other toxins.
The BODY BIOTICS CHILDREN'S SBO Probiotic Blend can be kept at room temperature, does not require refrigeration and has a 5-year shelf life.
How Are SBO Probitics Different From Other Probiotic Supplements , you may ask?
There is a powerful distinction between SBOs (Soil Based Organisms) and the popular probiotics on the market today. Although SBOs are in the same category as other probiotics, consuming the typical probiotics without the SBOs would be like playing football without a quarterback. The good friendly bacteria found in the usual probiotics are endogenous, meaning these bacteria are naturally occurring in the body, whereas, the SBOs in BODY BIOTICSÂ® CHILDREN'S SBO Probiotic Supplemental Formula are not endogenous to the body.
Soil Based Organisms are non-toxic, friendly, FOREIGN bacteria. As foreign agents, they act as a catalyst for the body to help produce its own natural antibodies which are non-specific and stand readily available to help defend the body against other dangerous unfriendly invaders.
Some of the benefits of friendly Soil Based Organisms are:
1) SBO's produce specific proteins that act as antigens. These antigens help to stimulate and strengthen the immune system by producing a reserve of natural antibodies that are un-coded and stand ready to defend the body against unfriendly invaders.
2) SBO's are extremely effective in supporting the body in its fight against pathological molds, yeast, fungi, and viruses.
3) SBO's produce a potent antioxidant enzyme called "Super Oxide Dismutase" that acts as a super scavenger to defend against free- radicals (free radicals will attack any molecule in the body creating organ and tissue damage.)
