Udo’s Choice® Infant's Blend Microbiotic is specially formulated to help combat many common early childhood issues including diarrhoea and infectious diseases. It supports the immune system and has even been shown to improve lactose intolerance. It’s powerful anti-microbial effects help little ones stay well.
Even the healthiest child is often sick, and the road to the doctor’s door can become a very well-beaten track. That’s because infants don’t arrive with a full adult-style immune system. In fact, it takes years to build up some immunity to even the commonest illnesses.
So exactly how does Infant's Blend Microbiotics help? It contains six specially chosen strains of ‘good’ bacteria, including bifidobacterium infantis, the most important microorganism in the large intestine of babies and toddlers. These strains are present at a volume that is both very safe and highly beneficial for their tiny, brand new digestive systems.
Of course, childhood illnesses can’t – and shouldn’t – be avoided altogether but when you supplement with Infant's Blend Microbiotics you know you’re giving your infant’s developing immune system a great helping hand - and staying well, as any parent knows, means more fun for everyone.
Why choose Udo’s Choice® Infant's Blend?
Infant's Blend contains 6 strains of healthy bacteria chosen for their high value to health and have been formulated to the viable count appropriate for infants. The powder format makes it easy to add to breast milk, water, formula or other liquid after it has been heated.
Dissolve 1⁄2 a teaspoon once a day in formula, breast milk or other liquid to maintain healthy intestinal flora. Dissolve 1⁄2 a teaspoon 3 times a day in formula or other liquid in order to build up good intestinal flora.

Lactobacillus casei is a bacteria commonly used for milk fermentation and is naturally occurring in the mouth and digestive tract. L.casei breaks down carbohydrates and inhibits the growth of pathogenic and putrefactive bacteria in the small intestine. L.casei has been studied for its antimicrobial effects and its role in cellular immunity. It has also shown to be helpful in treating diarrhoea caused by antibiotics and viruses.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus is one of the most important microbiotic strains for the health of the adult digestive tract from the mouth to the small intestine. It is primarily found in the small intestine and vaginal tract and is beneficial in inhibiting the bacteria involved in vaginal and urinary tract infections. L.rhamnosus has a high resistance to bile salts and stomach acid and therefore grows prolifically. It protects against the invasion of harmful microorganisms by stimulating gut lining cells to produce mucin, a mucous coating that also prevents toxins from reaching the blood. It provides excellent control over putrefactive microbes, and effectively inhibits disease-causing pathogens. One of the most intensively studied strains of Lactobacillus, it has been shown to stimulate immune responses.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is one of the most prominent micro-organisms found in the small intestine. L.acidophilus produces lactic acid which inhibits yeast growth, as well as natural antibiotics which enhance immune functions. L.acidophilus has been shown to inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria such as Salmonella, Shigella, S.faecalis and E.coli. Moreover, studies have shown that L.acidophilus is effective in reducing lactose intolerance, reinforcing the immune system, and reducing cholesterol levels.
Bifidobacterium infantis is the most important microorganism found in the large intestine of infants and has been validated as an effective adjunct therapy in the treatment of acute diarrhoea. Bacteriocidal activity has also been observed against such pathogens as Clostridia, Salmonella, and Shigella. B.infantis has been shown to stimulate the production of immuno-modulating agents.
Bifidobacterium bifidum is found primarily in the large intestine. As a producer of B vitamins, B.bifidum helps the body in the completion of its digestive process, specifically in the absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium and other vitamins and minerals. B.bifidum produces lactic and acetic acids, which lower the intestinal pH and inhibit unfriendly bacteria from growing. Recent studies have shown that B.bifidum can reduce the incidence of acute diarrhoea in infants and is beneficial in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Bifidobacterium breve colonizes the large intestine and is a producer of lactic and acetic acids that inhibit the growth of undesirable bacteria. It enhances immune responses against various pathogenic antigens and has been shown to repress the growth of ulcer-inducing bacteria. Recent studies have demonstrated that B.breve can colonize the immature bowel of infants very effectively and is associated with better weight gain in very low birth weight infants.
