FlorastorBaby facilitates the absorption of nutrients and increases digestive enzymes and features Biocodex's unique, active probiotic strain, Saccharomyces boulardii lyo CNCM I-745, made from the friendly yeast found naturally on the skin of lychee and mangosteen fruits. The strain is backed by more than 60 years of use and research worldwide. With no added dyes or flavoring, FlorastorBaby is vegetarian, non-GMO and gluten-free—the ideal supplement to encourage healthy habits at an early age.

Infants can begin taking FlorastorBaby at two months to help maintain a balance of healthy intestinal bacteria, support a healthy immune system and aid in natural digestion. Florastor probiotics are naturally resistant to common antibiotics and continue to work when babies have to take antibiotic doses.

For easy consumption, FlorastorBaby comes in powder-filled sticks that can be mixed into any cool beverage or semi-solid food such as breast milk, baby formula, or pureed/ strained foods. FlorastorBaby can be taken day or night and requires no refrigeration, so it's perfect for moms and dads on the go.

"We believe that healthy habits begin at an early age and are thrilled to add FlorastorBaby to our family of probiotics that support healthy guts," says Juan Motta, General Manager at Biocodex. "Parents today are active, health conscious and very family oriented. FlorastorBaby sits right at the center of those ideals, supporting digestive and immune health from the start, so little ones can flourish."

Biocodex's flagship product, Florastor, is a yeast-based probiotic that also uses Saccharomyces boulardii lyo CNCM I-745. Maintaining a healthy gut provides crucial benefits including increased enzymes to digest dietary sugars, more efficient breakdown of complex carbs, and a strengthened immune system response.
