What are probiotics? Here’s what you need to know. 

You’ve heard of probiotics and all the great things they can do, but you may still find yourself wondering what are probiotics exactly. We’ll try to answer the question, “What are probiotics?” and shed some light on some related subjects as well. Because everyone deserves a straight answer, especially a busy mom like yourself. 

Evivo Satchet

Evivo is activated B. infantis and works with breast milk to digest special nutrients and crowd out bad bacteria that can be harmful to baby’s gut. It is especially critical to feed Evivo to your baby during the first 6 months of life, when baby’s immune system and metabolism is still developing. 

Q. What are probiotics? 
A: Probiotics are living microorganisms, the good bacteria that live mostly in your gut along with other bacteria, which may not be so good. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that, when chosen wisely, boost good health in both adults and babies’ guts. 

Q: What are probiotics for babies? 
A:  There are many types of probiotics that are marketed for babies, but there’s only one baby probiotic that’s clinically proven to reduce bad gut bacteria by 80% and restore baby’s gut to its original state: Evivo. This probiotic is the strain of good bacteria B. infantis that babies require in their gut for proper nutrition and gut health. 

Q: What are Evivo baby probiotics’ main benefits? 
A: Some of the many benefits of Evivo include allowing baby to properly digest all nutrients in breastmilk, supporting the proper development of the immune system and metabolism, and an 80% reduction of bad gut bacteria associated with many symptoms like colic, allergies, eczema, diabetes and obesity. 

In a recent study:

• Nearly half (48%) of moms claim their baby’s nighttime sleep is longer/more consistent within the first few weeks after starting Evivo*
• 23% of moms noticed their baby’s diaper rash was less severe/completely cleared up within the first few weeks after starting Evivo*
• 2 out of 3 moms claim their baby had less gas/fussiness within the first few weeks after starting Evivo*

    So Glad We Found This
    We had twins and a c-section. One of the babies also had an ongoing diaper rash. After starting Evivo, the diaper rash cleared within days and both babies began sleeping much more soundly. We thought that having a poopy diaper every time was a good thing, but upon reading about it, that's not how the digestive system should be working. Once we started Evivo, #2 diapers were fuller, but less often, which is just what we want to see. Thanks Evivo, keep up the great work, you sure have helped us.

    Love this probiotic! It has helped my now two-month-old have even poops and less gas. I wish I had started it even earlier. I recommend this product to all moms.

    Even though my little one is formula fed due to supply issues, I decided to give Evivo a try because no other probiotic or gas drop has worked for her reflux & gas. Within a week, she stopped screaming during feeds, her spit up was almost none, and she no longer writhed with gas pain. I went from gripe water & simethicone drops with every feed to only using gripe water a couple time per week for hiccups... I now have my sweet baby I always knew was in there under the pain!!

    Amazing product!
    My daughter has issues with gas and reflux. Since birth she would cry and scream for 4-6 hours each night steadily when I went to put her down at the start of the night due to digestive discomfort. We started on the EVIVO probiotics three days ago and she is now going down within 30-60 minutes each night and is now sleeping for 3-5 hour stretches each night! It has been a life saver for my family and for my little one!

    My friend told me about evivo. I thought I would try it. My baby girl was spitting up after every feeding and really fussy. She also went a long time in between poops and seemed to really struggle to go. The doctor said since she was still gaining wait it wasn’t a problem and that it was normal for babies. It didn’t seem right that because lots of babies fuss that means there isn’t a problem. The probiotic has helped a lot. Obviously she still fusses because she’s a baby, but she doesn’t seem constantly uncomfortable.

    I think it worked - my 2 month old seems less gassy but I'm not sure if I can completely contribute it to the probiotic. It seems to be more effective than the other probiotic I tried but that could be because my daughters digestive system is maturing or because I cut out dairy. Having to make the mixture every morning is a bit taxing mainly because it means I have to pump or heat up previously pumped milk. I do think that for who expensive it is, it's crap they call a "month" supply only 28 packets (vs 30 or 31). It sort of makes me wonder what other truths are they are stretching in marketing.

    So much calmer
    My son used to scream every night from 10pm-midnight every night starting at 4 weeks. We started Evivo out of desperation. The day he started the probiotic, he has not has his evening crying episode a single time. He is sleeping better at night. He still has his fussy moments throughout the day, but I'll take it for the smooth sleeping nights!
