Kirkman® Offers Delicious New Probiotic Supplement in a Chewable Chocolate Wafer

RENO, NV--(Marketwired - June 05, 2015) - Chocolate probiotic? You heard that right. Kirkman®, a 65-year-old nutraceutical company in Reno, Nev., recently introduced a chocolate version of its best selling product Pro-Bio Gold (based on its best-selling product Pro-Bio Gold™).

Children's Chewable Pro-Bio Gold™ Chocolate Wafers have the same six strains of certified organisms as Kirkman's popular Pro-Bio Gold™ capsules for adults, but in a pleasant, creamy, white chocolate-tasting wafer. Each wafer delivers 20 billion CFUs.

This probiotic supplement contains a combination of the most important "resident" as well as "transient" microorganisms that contribute to maintaining and promoting a healthy GI tract. Many factors contribute to the depletion of healthy bacteria in the human body (ie Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium and Thermophilus), such as environmental toxins, stress or anxiety, improper diet or nutrient deficiencies, food allergies and sensitivities, overgrowth of yeasts or bacteria, the permeability of the intestinal wall, and exposure to some medications; most notably antibiotics.

There are many reasons that good bacteria in the gut, which is necessary for good health, can be altered by problematic, "unfriendly" bacteria. A course of antibiotics prescribed by a doctor for the flu or other viruses can also destroy the healthy bacteria in the digestive tract. Probiotics are important to put back "friendly" bacteria so that gut health can be maintained.

Children's Chewable Pro-Bio Gold™ Chocolate Wafers are an excellent way to help re-populate a child's digestive system with healthy bacteria to assist with the absorption of nutrients, regulate digestion, and maintain a smoothly running digestive system.
