GET 15 TIMES MORE SURVIVABILITY THAN WITH OTHERS. With a patented delivery method, the probiotic organisms in this formula are released over an 8-10 hour period so they bypass stomach acids and reach deep into the intestinal tract alive (where they are needed most) so your child can experience the benefits that probiotics have to offer.‡
GIVE YOUR CHILD THE FOUNDATION OF A STRONG IMMUNE SYSTEM. From our modern dietary choices to our daily hygiene regimens, there are many things that can affect the balance of bacteria critical for healthy digestion and immune function. Proper probiotic supplementation can help repopulate your child's gut, help with nutrient absorption, and support their natural defenses, giving your child a solid foundation for a lifetime of health.
KEEP YOUR CHILD HEALTHY. 80% of your immune system is in your gut. PRO-Kids probiotics help restore your child's beneficial bacteria for digestive and immune health.
DRAMA FREE AND EASY TO SWALLOW. This very tiny pearl is the smallest on the market and is easy to swallow for most children of chewing age and up. PRO-Kids pearls are most effective when swallowed rather than chewed (though they still taste great if chewed!).
PREMIUM PROBIOTIC SUPPLEMENT. Avoiding the synthetic and sugar-loaded ingredients you know are not beneficial for your child can be quite a challenge! You can rest assured because PRO-Kids is sugar free (sweetened with stevia) and has ZERO artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners.
4 Targeted Probiotic Strains (including Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium) because bacterial diversity is key when it comes to gut health. PRO-Kids also includes B. infantis, the powerful probiotic found in breastfed infants, for targeted support.
Easy to Swallow. This very tiny pearl is the smallest on the market and is easy to swallow for most children of chewing age and up. PRO-Kids pearls work best when swallowed rather than chewed, though still taste great if chewed! They can also be hidden in food or even crushed and then mixed with cold foods.
Long Shelf Life & No Refrigeration Necessary. With the patented LiveBac® manufacturing process, we offer a guaranteed, extended shelf life with zero refrigeration. Many probiotics don't provide a date of any kind because their organisms die so quickly after being manufactured.
3 Billion Colony Forming Units† per BIO-tract® pearl, which is equivalent to 45 Billion CFU (colony forming units) of standard probiotic capsules!‡
Naturally Derived Prebiotic included in each pearl to help feed the probiotics for increased potency. Prebiotics are fibers that encourage the growth of beneficial bacteria throughout your colon.
Only Once per Day. That's it. Because with time-release delivery, the benefits are being delivered deep inside your child's gut, hour by hour.
Made in the USA. Our probiotics are manufactured in Washington and Colorado in facilities that are GMP certified through NSF. We adhere to the strictest quality control and FDA guidelines and perform rigorous testing on every lot to ensure they are survivable and as the label states.
Choose Premium & Sugar Free. This formula is vegetarian, non-GMO, and free of dairy, gluten, and yeast. There is also no soy, sugar, nuts, artificial flavors, artificial colors, or preservatives.
PRO-Kids does not contain any strains that are not resident to the human gut, like Soil Based Organisms (SBOs) or active yeasts.
Hyperbiotics PRO-Kids Has 15x More Survivability Than Capsules.‡
Let us explain…
Probiotics help replenish the beneficial gut bacteria that may have been depleted as a result of modern life and they help support overall health and well-being.
However, studies show that without protection most probiotics entering the stomach won't survive to reach optimal sites within the gastrointestinal tract. Most probiotic products retain only 4% of these sensitive organisms during passage through the stomach's harsh environment.
The good news: with the patented BIO-tract® protection and time-release delivery, we have increased this number to a remarkable 60%.
When the tablet is moistened by gastric fluids, a gel matrix forms that creates a protective layer, shielding beneficial organisms from stomach acids and directing them to release later in their journey.
Once inside the gastrointestinal tract, probiotics begin to release at consistent levels from the tablet core, delivering a potent percentage of our living organisms throughout the day and throughout your gut, traveling deep into your intestinal tract where they are needed most.
This is the only controlled-release delivery available for probiotics on the market today and is patented in 31 countries (US Patent 8,007,777 and 7,150,623).
Most probiotic supplements are in veggie capsules that offer no protection from a harsh stomach environment, meaning that many of the beneficial organisms do not survive long enough to deliver the full benefit.
Enteric coated probiotic capsules offer some protection from stomach acids with a few drawbacks. Most enteric coatings are made of a synthetic chemical that the capsule is then dipped into. In addition to unwanted added chemicals, the capsule contains air and the coating contains moisture that may be detrimental to the probiotic organisms. You see, freeze-dried probiotic powder is ‘hygroscopic,’ meaning that it seeks out moisture. The beneficial flora will start wicking the moisture away from the air and the coating, which may start killing the living probiotics inside. Essentially, the air inside both veggie capsules and enteric coated capsules can cause the living organisms inside to self-destruct, leading to a far less potent product.
Instead of a coating or a capsule, we tablet our formulas using a patented manufacturing process called LiveBac® and a patented delivery method called BIO-tract®, which provide protection for the beneficial flora while on the shelf (as there is minimal air and moisture) and as the tablet travels through the harsh environment of your stomach acids. Simply put, this leads to greater probiotic delivery to your gut, and potentially greater health benefits for you. Furthermore, BIO-tract® ensures that the active organisms are released slowly over an 8-10 hour period while making the journey through the intestinal tract, successfully bypassing your stomach acids so that they can colonize in your small and large intestine, where you need them.
Hyperbiotics formulas have a guaranteed, extended shelf life with zero refrigeration.
† At the time of manufacture.
‡ Patented BIO-tract® delivery method consistently delivers as many as 15 times, or more, the number of live, viable probiotic organisms past simulated stomach acids than veggie capsules as demonstrated through in vitro lab testing.
A shelf life you can count on. We use a patented manufacturing process called LiveBac® that increases the stability of PRO-Kids without refrigeration and enables us to guarantee its shelf life until the date of expiration found on the bottom of your bottle.
Store in a cool, dry place. Really. If you don't live in a cool, dry place or keep your home below 78 degrees, it is best to store your bottle in the fridge or even better, in the freezer, when/if you can. PRO-Kids is only susceptible to extreme heat and humidity once the bottle has been opened (our probiotics are very well protected until then). PRO-Kids has a guaranteed, extended shelf life with zero refrigeration.
It's OK to take on an empty stomach (though not required). Our patented BIO-tract® delivery ensures that the living organisms are delivered throughout the day and throughout your child's digestive tract – so you don't need to buffer it with food as you may with other capsules.
Use earlier rather than later. The reason we never have too many tablets per bottle at Hyperbiotics is that CFUs begin to slowly die off once the bottle is opened (this applies to all probiotics, not just PRO-Kids. In fact, our patented technology makes our die-off drastically slower than that of others!). We want you to get the highest potency possible, so we simply don't pack hundreds of tablets into one bottle.
Increase your dosage when needed. If your child is in need of a bigger boost or has just completed a round of antibiotics, you can give them 2-3 pearls each day. It's also a good idea to increase their dosage just before and during travel as it often exposes you to temporary digestive and immune stress.
Recycle your bottle when you're done. We're committed to minimizing our ecological footprint, and we'd love for you to join us by recycling your empty bottle whenever possible. In fact, we're taking action to reduce negative impacts on our planet's natural resources and improve ecosystems around the world.
An additional tip is to encourage your child to eat a whole food diet, high in fruits and vegetables. Studies show that the microorganisms in our gut change relatively quickly based on the food we eat. Foods that are rich in prebiotics will also help their probiotics colonize and “set up shop” in their GI tract.
What strains are in PRO-Kids?
PRO-Kids contains the following probiotic strains:
• Lactobacillus plantarum
• Lactobacillus acidophilus
• Bifidobacterium infantis
• Bifidobacterium lactis
What are the benefits of probiotics for my kids?
Probiotics replenish the good bacteria in your gut and help keep your children healthy by:
• Aiding in digestion
• Helping them absorb the nutrients from their food and vitamins
• Supporting their immune system
• Supporting the gut-brain connection
Can a child under the age of 3 take PRO-Kids?
PRO-Kids is suitable for children of safe chewing age and older. We specify “three and older” because the pearls are most effective when swallowed whole. That said, younger children can simply chew them or you can simply break the pearl into smaller pieces and mix them into cold foods like yogurt. Note, for small children, adult supervision is required to prevent the risk of choking if swallowed whole.
Does PRO-Kids contain nuts, dairy, or gluten?
PRO-Kids (and all of our products!) is completely gluten and nut free. We also maintain a strict allergen control program at our facility and we don’t make products with nuts of any kind. In addition, the turmeric we use is not manufactured in a facility with any tree nuts. PRO-Kids is also lactose-free, but may contain a trace amount (less than 2.5 parts per million) of the milk protein casein, a necessary part of the fermentation process. Unless your child has very severe dairy allergies, this should not cause any issues.
What makes Hyperbiotics probiotic formulas unique?
We use a patented time-release delivery method called BIO-tract® that protects the beneficial organisms from stomach acids so they make it deep within your intestinal tract alive, where they can set up shop and get to work at keeping your children healthy. This delivery method also ensures that our formulas have 15x more survivability than veggie capsules, powders, liquids, and gummies, allowing your little ones to finally experience the benefits that probiotics have to offer.
What makes Hyperbiotics probiotics premium?
Our formulas are exceptional because they meet these four criteria:
• Survival on the shelf
• Survival past stomach acid
• The right strains (human resident strains as opposed to SBOs or active yeasts)
• A variety of strains
How quickly can I expect my child to feel a difference?
Probiotics are much like vitamins, some people notice a difference almost immediately while others may need a few weeks or more. It’s also possible to simply notice a subtle shift in a healthier direction. From the day your children start taking PRO-Kids, it gets to work colonizing in your child's digestive tract.
How long should my child take a probiotic?
We believe that taking a probiotic on a daily basis is one of the most proactive things that you can do to support your immune and digestive health. Because aspects of modern life can continuously deplete the beneficial bacteria in the gut, we suggest taking probiotics daily over the course of several months or more.
Do I need to refrigerate these?
With patented LiveBac®, we are able to guarantee our formulas with zero refrigeration —so you can be confident that your probiotics are viable when your child takes them.
Will my probiotics survive being shipped in the heat?
Yes! LiveBac® enables our products to withstand extreme heat for up to seven days—even longer if both seals are left intact.
