Myths About Probiotics
Myth 1: A multi-strain probiotic product is better
Reality based on science: Mixing multiple strains of probiotics together can impact the actions of the individual strains, and they may even compete with each other, unless there are clinical data showing the efficacy and safety of such combination of strains in the particular ratio.
NewGen Probiotics + Prebiotics Junior contains a single strain of Bifidobacterium longum that has strong track record of clinical efficacy and safety for human use.
Myth 2: Products with higher CFU of probiotics are more effective
Reality based on science: A more meaningful aspect to look at would be how much probiotics could survive through the stomach to eventually reach the intestines alive. Although rare, excessive amounts of probiotics could pose greater risks of infections. In rare cases, probiotics can enter the bloodstream and cause infections in susceptible individuals.
NewGen Probiotics + Prebiotics Junior contains 2 billions CFU of Bifidobacterium longum. Due to the 3-layer embedding microcapsule technology, more than 90% of probiotics survive through the stomach to reach the intestines alive. 2 billions CFU in NewGen Probiotics + Prebiotics Junior is the right amount of probiotics to prime the gut in young children.

Its taste is sweet. Is NewGen Probiotics with high sugar content?
No, NewGen Probiotics is actually very low in calories. Although it tastes sweet, but there is no need to worry about its sugar content. There are 3 types of healthy sugars in NewGen Probiotics – raffinose, erythritol, and trehalose. Raffinose is a prebiotic that probiotics can feed on to keep healthy and strong, and is important for maintaining a healthy digestive system. Human body lacks of the enzyme to digest it thus it stays only in the intestines as prebiotic. Erythritol is a sugar alcohol used as a low-calorie sweetener. With only 6% of the calories of table sugar, it still contains 70% of the sweetness. It does not raise blood sugar or insulin levels. Trehalose is a naturally occurring, energy-producing sugar that is a healthy option for diabetics and hypoglycemics. With 55% the sweetness of table sugar, it is effective for balancing sugar levels while still bringing a little “sweetness” into the taste.
Will my child experience frequent farting after taking the probiotics? Is this expected?
Some may experience temporary frequent farting when he/she first starts to take the probiotics. Changes in the gut microbiota can result in bacteria producing more gas than usual, which can lead to frequent farting and bloating. However, while he/she continues with the probiotics, these seemingly side effects usually clear up within few days to 2 weeks when gut microbiota condition becomes better.
However, NewGen probiotics contain gelatin, soy and milk ingredients. Discontinue immediately if your child experiences rash, vomiting or allergies.
