Parents today are very familiar with the long-term health advantages of starting probiotics early in life, and are searching for safe products for their infants and toddlers, according to the company. This parental demand prompted Wellements’ latest innovation that integrates probiotics with its time-tested gripe water remedy.
The new USDA-certified organic Wellements Probiotic Gripe Water formula is designed to help to ease stomach discomfort often associated with gas, colic, fussiness and hiccups in infants, while supplying an abundance of friendly bacteria critical for healthy digestive and immune systems. The company cited a recent studythat show babies given probiotics have less stomach discomfort and shorter crying spells [JAMA Pediatrics, 2014]. Experts also suggest long-term probiotic use can provide asthma, allergy [Allergy, Asthma & Clinical Immunology, 2009] and eczema relief [Allergy, 2009].
Wellements Probiotic Gripe Water is USDA-certified organic, free from preservatives, alcohol, parabens, gluten, dairy, soy and artificial ingredients. Wellements chose the probiotic strain LactoSpore for use in its gripe water based on the strain’s history of safety, stability and effectiveness with infants. Wellements Probiotic Gripe Water can be safely administered to newborns starting at two weeks old.
