A: Starting from the age of four to twelve, it is a time when the child moves from home into wider social contexts that strongly influence their development. A good nutritional and supplemental support during these years, helps the child to earn new social status by demonstrating their intellectual, emotional, and interpersonal skills and performance. For this reason, FAMIKID was formulated to boost immune system, brain and respiratory health through proliferation of good bacteria in the gut. Therefore, developing stronger gut health and prevention of onslaught of bad microbes from the environment will keep the child learning capacity in top form and give mother a better peace of mind.
With the child’s gut health in mind, FAMIKID is a first in probiotic with a triple-function formulation designed to boost gut immunity, respiratory health and support brain & cognitive development with the actives that mother nature has given us. This led to development of special blend in ImmuG combining two families of well researched bacteria known as Human Residential Bifidobacteria (or HRB) and Lactobacilli (with strains Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG and HN001, Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM).
The bacteria are selected because they have been proven to be effective and safe for food supplement worldwide with GRAS certification in accordance with USFDA. The much-researched Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG and HN001strains influence not only the balance of gut flora but also found to be good for the development of immune health. The HRB’s strains Bi-07 and BB536 not only are known for gut immunity, there are multiple health benefits when combined with other strains together. An example, research has shown Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM together with Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07 significantly reduce fever, cough and runny nose. The number of sick days taken also reduced by nearly half with almost 80% reduction in antibiotic usage.
Another major discovery with our panel of gastrointestinal experts in Japan was how a protein in breast milk known as Lactoferrin can help in building up defence mechanism against infection. Probiotics formulated with Lactoferrin is especially helpful for children as well due to the anti-viral, anti-microbial and immunomodulating functions.
In other words, it is two-pronged approach to strengthening immunity from the gut with clear results in terms of reduction of sick days and infection symptoms. Better results and less risks.
DHA is another important fatty acid present in human breast milk. It is a vital component of the phospholipids of human cellular membranes, especially those in the brain and retina. DHA is vital for normal brain development for the foetus and infant and for the maintenance of normal brain function throughout life. This is particularly important for the child’s development as learning environment becomes more demanding.
The combination of ImmuG, Lactoferrin and DHA now form a comprehensive protection system essential to boosting gut immunity inside out, reduce sick days due to respiratory issue while supporting brain development of the child.
