Probiotics and Your Child Probiotics are friendly bacteria that live naturally in the gut to help maintain a balanced intestinal and digestive environment. Probiotics for children promote a beneficial balance of microflora in the intestinal tract, which supports a healthy gastrointestinal and immune system. Qiara Kids probiotics encourage good bacterial diversity to support optimal health and wellbeing. Qiara and Antibiotics Antibiotics may be prescribed for your child to combat bacterial infections but can also disrupt the balance of beneficial bacteria (probiotics) in your child's body. Containing a robust probiotic strain, Qiara Kids Probiotic may help to restore beneficial bacteria that may have been disrupted by the use of antibiotics and maintain a healthy digestive microflora balance. If taking Qiara Kids Probiotics during a course of antibiotics, ensure your child consumes Qiara at least 2-3 hours away from his/her antibiotics dose to give the living organisms in Qiara the best chance of survival. Continue taking Qiara after the completion of the antibiotics course, for at least one month or ongoing. Caring for Your Qiara Qiara Probiotic for kids contains living organisms, and can perish if care is not taken in their handling and storage. Each dose of Qiara is carefully produced in an Australian TGA licensed facility, then sealed in individual sachets. This ensures that every dose has the minimum amount of exposure to the environment and contains the number of organisms advertised, if not more, right through to the expiry date on the package. Store your Qiara in a cool, dry place (below 25°C, not in direct sunlight). Consume all the contents of a sachet as soon as possible after opening (mix with water and consume immediately).
