Babies cry for a variety of reasons: they’re hungry, they’re thirsty, they need changing or they’re sick. Sometimes they cry for no apparent reason at all. This is called infantile colic. A colicky baby cries or shows symptoms of discomfort, such as moaning or fussing, for up to several hours.
Three recent studies published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information found that many babies with infantile colic had an inflamed intestine caused by certain bacteria. Based on the results, scientists concluded that higher levels of beneficial bacteria, like those found in probiotics, lessened intestinal inflammation in babies.
Like adults, babies benefit from a healthy balance of intestinal bacteria that are found in probiotics. EndoMune Junior contains billions of bacteria that improves intestinal digestion, helping relieve colic and ease babies’ distress.
