A newborn is exposed to bacteria from many sources--this is not a bad thing. In fact, exposure to bacteria in the birth canal, breast milk (especially Bifidobacteria) and the environment is critical for establishing a child’s intestinal fl ora, promoting a healthy metabolism and priming the immune system.
Once established, the intestinal flora remains relatively stable over the course of our lives. However certain factors can disrupt this balance, particularly in children. The most common disruption of the intestinal flora in children is the use of antibiotics.
Jarrow Formulas Yum-Yum Dophilus is a delicious and sugar-free synbiotic (probiotic plus prebiotic) supplement for children age 2 years and older. Each tablet is individually blister-packed for enhanced stability and convenience. Yum-Yum Dophilus helps fortify the body’s natural defenses for optimum intestinal and immune health
Benefits of probiotics
Probiotics are defined as “live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host.” Some of the benefits they may provide are:
• training the immune system
• restoring gut microflora
• benefiting GI health and regularity
• supporting intestinal, vaginal and urinary tract health
• promoting digestion
• producing vitamins
• improving mineral absorption
The chewable synbiotic formulation of Yum-Yum Dophilus provides two strains from each of the most important groups of probiotic bacteria, Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria. Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are also included to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria.
One chewable tablet of Yum-Yum Dophilus contains approximately 500 million live organisms (1 billion per two-tablet serving), supplying four strains from different species: Lactobacillus acidophilus LA-14, Lactobacillus. plantarum LP-115, Bacillus bifidum BB-02, and Bacillus lactis BL-04.
Symbiosis: Yum-Yum Dophilus with inulin-FOS
Inulin-FOS is used as a food source by beneficial gut flora, promoting their growth over unfriendly bacteria. FOS is converted to butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid that nurtures gut cells and improves colonic integrity.
It also increases uptake of minerals like calcium and iron. Daily consumption of FOS in rats was shown to enhance longevity by over 30%.
Inulin-FOS enhances benefi cial bifidobacteria growth and production, lowers intestinal pH, and increases fecal bulk. Inulin- FOS is a pure natural extract of chicory with health benefits similar to soluble dietary fiber. Being a non-digestible carbohydrate, it does not raise blood glucose levels in the body.

What's the relation between histamine and gluten intolerance?A short while ago, I was alerted to research that is being conducted on histamine intolerance. The reason it piqued my interest was the remark on how perceived gluten intolerance may in reality be a case of histamine intolerance. The researchers that were interviewed spoke about probiotics being developed to 'cure' histamine intolerance.
Therefore, without further ado, an explanation on what histamine intolerance really is.
What is histamine?Histamine is an extremely important bioactive chemical that is indispensable in the efficient functioning of many body systems. It is a neurotransmitter and is involved in the regulation of stomach acid, the permeability of blood vessels, muscle contraction, and brain function.
In humans, the highest histamine concentrations are found in the skin, lung, and stomach, with smaller amounts in the brain and heart.
Histamine is also essential in defending the body against invasion by potentially disease-causing agents such as bacteria, viruses and other foreign bodies.
Histamine is made and stored within white blood cells such as mast cells.
When the immune system is activated in response to foreign material entering the body, histamine is the first "defense chemical", or more correctly, inflammatory mediator released in the process called inflammation. Inflammation is the clinical evidence that the immune system is responding to a potential threat to the body. Histamine is always present when inflammation occurs, and excess histamine will result in symptoms that resemble inflammation.
In addition to its role in controlling vital body processes and defending against foreign invaders, histamine is a key mediator in the symptoms of an allergic reaction. Since allergy is essentially an inflammatory reaction, histamine, together with other protective inflammatory mediators is released in response to the allergen.
Allergens are components of living cells that in themselves are harmless, such as plant pollens, animal dander, mould spores, dust particles, dust mites, and foods. An allergic reaction to these "foreign but harmless" substances occurs when the immune system mistakes these innocuous materials for a potential threat.

Can artificial sweeteners harm gut health and make you gain weight?Early September we published an overview of various natural and artificial sweeteners that are currently available and possible avantages or disadvantages associated to them.
Until very recently the clear-cut explanation of all official governmental dietary agencies as well as most mainstream dieticians was that artificial sweeteners are harmless and not a single iota of proof was available to the contrary.
Even your humble writer still believed sweeteners are relatively harmless as by definition, rats and mice aren't human so evidence about harmfulness for those laboratory animals doesn't prove too much.
However, over time more and more evidence has come up that artificial sweeteners are truly not as good for your waistline as you think they are, in ways that wasn't looked at before. Our gut microbes, which have a bigger influence on your weight and insulin sensitivity than we realize, are negatively inflenced by the artificial sweeteners we ingest.
Six tips on how to stay healthy at a BBQ
Eating outdoors as the weather heats up is one of the hallmarks of summertime activity, but before you fire up your barbecue grill or send out invitations to the family picnic, there are some precautions you should take to avoid a common occurrence: food poisoning.
Each year one out of 4 persons suffer from food borne illnesses as a result of eating contaminated food.
Preparing foods with unclean hands, eating undercooked meats, transferring contamination from raw meats to other foods, eating unwashed fruits and vegetables, and leaving perishable food out in warm weather can release a slew of bacteria, including E. coli and salmonella, as well as other food borne illnesses. This can result in nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or fever.
Here are six tips to stop food-borne illnesses from ruining your BBQ-fun
Fears about contamination of eggs or supplements
In the past week of early June, a lot of fear was placed in the heart of the public of both Dutch, German and French customers, when officials from the National Food Safety Board announced eggs had to be destroyed due to contamination with a banned substance, called fipronyl.
The reason this happened, is that fipronyl is an amazingly effective insecticide that was perfectly legal for use in stables where egg laying poultry live. This insecticide was however banned from January 1 onwards for use on animals in the food chain, with the main reason behind the ban being its toxicity to bees.
Friendly aliensProbiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. Probiotics help move food through your gut, and ease symptoms of (antibiotic-related or spontaneous) diarrhea and bowel diseases.
Furthermore probiotics can improve skin conditions like eczema, improve urinary and vaginal health. Probiotics are vital for our immunity as they are solely responsible for keeping the gut healthy.
Chew 2 tablets 30 minutes after a meal or on an empty stomach followed by 1/2 glass of water 20 minutes before eating. Recommended for children age 2 and above taken under the supervision of a parent or caregiver. May take up to 4 tablets a day, or as directed by your qualified health care consultant.
