Garden of Life Primal Defense® KidsProbiotic Formula -- 77 g
I think this stuff works
both of our kids have been on senekot liquid daily for chronic constipation since infancy and we have been unable to wean them off. We have increased fluids, fiber, activity, everything we could without a change. Even though I could not find any good evidence supporting the use of probiotics in kids (now age 3 and 7)to remedy chronic constipation, I figured we didn't have much to lose. Within a month they both were off the senekot-AMAZING. I am grateful I finally did this. We also struggle with frequent colds-except for summer months it seems we don't go more than a week without someone getting another cold, adults included. I can't report on the immune benefits yet but remain hopeful. Nevertheless, whatever the immune benefits, my kids are off laxatives and I'm ecstatic.

Great Tasting and effective!
My daughter has to be restrained from eating the whole container in one sitting. She takes a spoon and eats it straight! More importantly, it serves its purpose of populating her gut with beneficial bacteria, which has upped her immune system. She NEVER gets sick! No sugar or grains to boot! We will continue to use.

Happy healthy kids
I have been using this for almost a year now and my kids have been germ free. My 12 year also has regular bowel movements now. The real test will be when my 4 year old enters pre-k next year. I really believe a strong immune system starts with a healthy stomach. I just sprinkle this in the kids drink and stir it around. They never even notice it.

Product flavor undesireable
I thought my kids would like the banana flavor. Turns out, they didn't. I would recommend going with a probiotic that is flavorless, I've had others that are flavorless. And this one didn't dissolve in liquid very well. Overall, not too impressed.

Great for kids
Put this product in a smoothie and your children will never know it's there! Tastes great in my opinion. GoL is a wonderful company that makes top notch products. I trust them and their stuff works :)
