Elevit Probiotics offer a scientific formula with probiotic strains to support immunity and gut health during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Probiotics are live microorganisms (bacteria and yeast) that are good for you. Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria as they support health in different ways, such as helping your immune system function properly, promoting digestive system function and aiding nutrient absorption.
The body is home to approximately 100 trillion microorganisms, known as the microbiome. Most of these microbes (mainly bacteria) live in the gut.
The human body contains trillions of microbes that make up the microbiome and assist in keeping you healthy – probiotics can play a supportive role in these processes. Humans have a unique microbiome and this is not static – it is determined by geography, health status, stress, diet, age, gender and other environmental factors.
The first 1000 days of a baby's life, from conception, are a critical period for their long-term health. Contact with beneficial bacteria early in life can support the development and maturation of the immune system.
The natural makeup of the mother’s microbiome changes during pregnancy and is extremely influential. Factors like whether a baby was born vaginally or via C-section, at home or in hospital, can affect the composition of the baby’s microbiome. By the age of three, a child’s microbiome starts to resemble the microbiome of an adult.
Elevit Probiotics are a once daily supplement that can be taken at any time of the day with food.
