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*

    Great Baby Probiotic!
    Our 2 month old son has had a lot of digestive issues from a tongue and lip tie issue. We really needed to get him back on track after his revision and Evivo has made all the difference. He is like a new baby!

    Great probiotic!
    Our baby would scream every night due to painful gas and was not able to sleep for long stretches. Since using Evivo, she is much calmer and happier and can sleep for longer periods of time without waking up due to gas pain. Highly recommend this product!

    Good probiotic
    Seems to help baby digest more nutrients and helped with our switch from breast milk to formula. Wish it tasted/smelled better for little man and also wasn’t so expensive though!

    Good probiotic
    I started my son on this probiotic to relieve his constipation. I'm not 100% sure that it is the major factor in what is helping him poop, but it definitely contributes. Shipping was fast and it arrived cold!

    Wanted a good probiotic for baby
    Feels good knowing my little guy is getting the benefits of a great probiotic since I had to be on antibiotics right before and during my labor. I know these can have a profound effect on the gut, so I wanted to make sure my baby could have the right product to help get on the right track. It is sort of a labor of love to give this every day... making sure you have expressed breast milk, mixing it, serving it via syringe... but again, hopefully worth it. I plan to continue to give him this product while nursing because I think it’s the best option out there for nursing babies.

    Great product, but can be difficult for baby to take
    I started Evivo for my child for a few reasons: to proliferate this beneficial bacteria in her gut, because she’s had antibiotics already, but also she had colic. I was about 2 weeks in of Evivo use when she was 6.5 weeks old, and the colic ended. I’m unsure if it was time or Evivo, but I feel it may have a little to do with it. My only complaint is that Evivo mixes very grainy, so more breastmilk to mix with the better, and is not very tasty, as my little one spat it up many times. Otherwise, I’m very satisfied with this product and I am hopeful it will help protect her in the future from food allergies, etc. I used it with my first daughter and she’s very healthy!
