Ther-Biotic is a supplementary formula with lots of probiotic bacteria in it. These probiotic bacteria help revive the intestinal flora and help with the digestion.
The Ther-Biotic infant formula is for the infants who are in need of the supplements. The infant’s gut is not fully developed and is only getting the right amount of probiotic bacteria in its intestine. Some children will have a slow process for this, and the Ther-Biotic Infant formula helps them with this until they reach the age of 2 years.

These bacteria form an essential part of the infant’s gastrointestinal and immune development and health. The formula is made gentle for the little ones and is in easily absorbing form. The infants who are born out of c-section delivery will have a drastic decline in their intestinal microflora and will benefit hugely with this Ther-Biotic infant formula. Ther-Biotic infant formula is completely hypoallergenic and suits the babies and the toddlers equally well.
Why do infants need probiotics?
Babies are born with a sterile gut with no bacteria or other microorganisms. They develop these bacteria from the breast milk they take. Usually, the milk they consume is healthy enough but in some babies, that is not enough to have a healthy intestinal flora. They will need additional probiotics. Studies have revealed that the babies who take probiotics have shown lesser bouts of colic complaints. The probiotics help them digest the milk proteins and also boost and help with their immune system.
Babies who are born through C-section are primarily exposed to the harmful bacteria than the useful ones. They will have the malfunctioning of the microbial flora for a few months up to 6 months. The digestive system will, in turn, favor the growth of anaerobic bacteria as well. To counter this act, such infants can take the assistance of probiotics supplements such as Ther-Biotic infant formula.

I finished my masters in finance and worked for the Largest Private sector banking company in India. When the time came, I moved on to something less demanding and more creative. The influence of Indian culture asks us to put satisfaction upfront and I was in search of it. Writing struck me as a possibility and soon a passion. I am not creative but I am very thorough. Technical writing is my forte and at times I do delve into the creative side, though the stint usually lasts not more than a day! I enjoy traveling, reading and shopping.
