Microbiome balance at an early age has a significant effect on the health status of a child and, later on, an adult. In general - the microbiome affects overall immunity. The main role of normal intestinal microflora involves the prevention of growth and proliferation of harmful micro-organisms. At birth, there are no microbes in the gastrointestinal tract of a child and the immune system is also very “fresh” and undeveloped. During first contact with the surrounding environment, microbes come into contact with the skin and then enter the gastrointestinal tract as well, and the response of the immune system starts to develop. The substances produced by microbes directly affect the immune system, thus training it. The immune cells learn to cope with the substances produced by the microbes, which later affects the ability of the body to combat more serious attackers and fight diseases. This is why skin contact between the child and the mother is essential - the child receives their mother’s microbiome.
The early infant period is critical for the development of a child’s microbiome, and disruptions to this process can cause immune diseases such as food allergies, atopic dermatitis, asthma, etc.
The micro-organisms that first enter the body of the infant settle there and affect the health of a person in the long run, therefore childbirth and the first six months of life after birth are critical.
Pre-requisites for the development of a “healthy” biome:
The more sterile the environment in which the child is born and grows up, and the more it differs from what is natural, the more severe forms of allergy that the child can develop. Taking care of a healthy microbiome involves letting children come into direct contact with the rural environment and places beyond the urban environment.
When the child starts attending kindergarten and school, they are exposed to the irritants of the external environment daily, which significantly affects their health - their menu, habits, and behaviors change. The surrounding environment and daily stress affect the operation of the gastrointestinal tract - constipation and irregular bowel movement may develop, as well as the body may fail to receive the required nutrients. Nowadays children regularly consume too much fast food, sweetened drinks, and dishes that disrupt the gut microbiome and cause too much insulin fluctuations. This unhealthy diet develops a risk of diabetes mellitus and being overweight.
To grow and develop comprehensively, a child needs healthy food - food that is rich in vitamins, minerals, and fiber. The uptake of fiber affects the ability of the body to absorb nutrients and ensures the peristalsis of the gastrointestinal tract and a healthy microbiome. The microbiome affects the physical and psychological development of the child.
By including the next-generation supplements RTS FIBER into the daily menu, the function of the gastrointestinal tract is improved, regular bowel movements are ensured, metabolism improves, the body is supplied with the required vitamins and minerals, and a healthy microbiome is restored, as a result of which the natural defenses of the body are enhanced. The craving for sweets is reduced.
RTS FIBER can be used by children from 3 years of age. It can be added to breakfast cereals, milk, or yogurt (unsweetened). The daily dose for children aged 3 to 7 is 5 g. The daily dose for children aged 7 to 12 is 10 g. May be used for long periods.
RTS TUCA cao is a healthy alternative to sweet snacks; kids can make it themselves as it won’t require heating. Simply mix the powder with milk of your choice or water and it’s ready to be used.
