Why are probiotics important?
An incredible 70-80% of the immune system is located in the gut. A large and growing body of research has emerged demonstrating the critical importance of gut microflora in supporting overall health.
We created our SmartyPants Adult Gummy Prebiotic and Probiotic Immunity Formula and Kids Gummy Prebiotic and Probiotic Immunity Formula to address the need for a comprehensive, chewable probiotic supplement that includes both multiple strains of spore-form bacteria and prebiotics to feed your growing microbiome and support your immune system.
How much do I need?
There is no recommended dietary reference intake (DRI) for probiotic bacteria outlined by the Health and Medicine Division of the National Academy of Sciences (formerly known as the Institute of Medicine) or recommended daily intake (RDI) outlined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
However, the most recent scientific studies suggest that supplementing with probiotics can promote digestive health and healthy immune function.*
We always recommend checking with your healthcare provider before starting a new supplement.
The amount of bacteria in probiotics is often referred to as CFU. This stands for colony forming units. Each serving of SmartyPants Adult Prebiotic and Probiotic Immunity Formula delivers 7 billion CFU – that’s 7X more CFU than leading gummy probiotics. Each serving of SmartyPants Kids Prebiotic and Probiotic Immunity Formula delivers 4 billion CFU.
Our probiotic bacteria have been proven to survive the changing conditions of the digestive system and the harsh acids of the stomach.
Natural microencapsulation ensures that 95% of our probiotics reach the intestine alive where they can grow, multiple and help you thrive. No refrigeration required!
