Kid’s Live Cultures with Fibre Benefits
Gastrointestinal health and weight control*
It’s important to get gut health right early in life to help prevent the development of chronic health problems later on, including obesity and diabetes. Live cultures are helpful for diarrhoea, stomach upsets, and other GI conditions common in kids.
Immune system health*
Live cultures can boost your child’s immune function and help them fight off infections, so they can grow strong and healthy. These live cultures can also delay the onset of glucose intolerance and increase insulin sensitivity.
Better skin and mood*
The gut microbiome has a connection with both the skin and brain. A healthy gut can therefore influence a range of skin conditions, including Rosacea, Eczema, and Acne. It can also have a positive effect on a range of mood disorders.
Patented Live Culture Strains
Our specially selected live cultures are chosen for their stability and unique health-giving properties.

Why Choose Intelligent Labs Live Cultures For Your Child?
Giving your kid live cultures means a healthy gut and a happy child! This is because our gut microbiota influences basically every aspect of our health – from our intestines all the way up to our brain.*
Our Kid’s Live Cultures with Fibre can help your child grow strong and healthy. This product is formulated to support your child’s digestive and immune health, and promote cognitive development.* It’s perfect for children of all ages!
To ensure your child actually benefits from live cultures, we made our product kid-friendly by making it taste great with natural fruit flavour. It comes in a chewy tablet form, so young kids will simply think of them as candy. And don’t worry about sugar – these tablets are sugar-free and artificial sweetener-free!
Acid and Bile Resistant Strains
Live cultures are exposed to acid and bile as they go through the digestive system on their journey to reach the large intestine. Both acid and bile can kill off live cultures. But we specifically choose strains that can survive these conditions to ensure all these beneficial microbes reach your child’s gut alive, where they can begin to do their good work.
Synbiotic Effect of Fibre
Each Intelligent Labs Kid’s Live Cultures tablet contains the fibres Sunfiber® and FOS, two non-digestible fibres that act as food for the live cultures. Our live cultures are manufactured in a freeze-dried state. However, even the slightest exposure to light, heat, moisture, or air can wake them up. When they wake, they will need a food source, else they will die. It’s therefore vital to choose a brand that includes fibre in their tablets.
Active Packaging Technology
We control the exposure of our live cultures to moisture and water by using a uniquely engineered Activ-Polymer™ bottle. It features an impenetrable desiccant sleeve wrapped around the live cultures so they remain moisture-free. We also use an Oxyfree® desiccant to absorb any oxygen and remove any residual moisture from inside the bottle, meaning we can reduce oxygen levels to 0.01% for the entire lifespan of the product.
At Intelligent Labs, we use high-quality ingredients to make the best children’s live cultures supplement on the market! We don’t use fillers, artificial flavours, additives or preservatives on any of our health products.
Our Kid’s Live Cultures with Fibre is manufactured at an NSF GMP-certified facility in the United States. Our third-party testing certificates are also available for all our customers to see.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When is the best time for my child/children to take their live cultures?
They can take them at any time, however, we generally recommend taking them with a meal, ideally breakfast in the morning. The reason is food will lower the acidity of the stomach, (i.e raise stomach pH), so it is more beneficial for the bacteria. Although our live culture strains are specifically selected for resistance to stomach acids, every little bit helps.
Where is the best place to store the kid’s live culture tablets?
Our product uses specifically selected strains, so they don’t need to be refrigerated. However, we recommend storing them in a cool, dry place.
Will my child experience gas, bloating, or diarrhoea?
A little gas or bloating is the most common side effect when taking live cultures in both adults and children. If it does happen, it will normally happen in the first few days after they start taking the supplement. It’s important to understand that this is the body’s natural response, and it’s actually nothing to worry about and usually passes in a few days.
The reason it occurs is because the gut bacteria is rebalancing itself. Live culture bacteria are active against yeast, harmful bacteria and fungi, and when your child takes these tablets, harmful microorganisms will start to die. This is what can cause these issues to temporarily increase. It’s actually a sign that the beneficial bacteria are getting to work and helping their gut.
My child is on antibiotics, can they take live cultures?
Yes, your child can take live cultures with antibiotics, studies suggest it’s favourable to do so, and helps them to recover more quickly after they finish the course of antibiotics. However, we recommend that you make sure they take their live cultures and antibiotics at least 2 hours apart to reduce the possibility of the antibiotic killing the good bacteria.
Some live culture supplements are cheap, whilst others are expensive. How do I know which supplement offers the best value for money?
The key is looking at the strength or Colony Forming Units (CFU). It’s also important to understand how many of those CFU’s will still be alive in the tablet by the time you take it. We over-manufacture our live cultures and use Active Packaging Technology and fibre to ensure the strength that is on the bottle is the strength you get in your gut.
Many other manufacturers will offer live cultures that will be significantly less powerful by the time you take them than when they are manufactured.
Are these peanut and tree-nut free?
Yes, our Kid’s Live Cultures with Fibre supplement are peanut and tree-nut free.
Is this in gummy form?
No, this is in chewable tablet form, not gummy.
What age range of kids is this product for?
Toddlers around 2-3 years old who already know how to chew can start taking this product. If they struggle chewing, crush up the tablet and mix into milk, water, or juice.
Can teenagers still take these?
We recommend up to puberty age for the Kid’s Live Cultures, so around age 13-14 (varies by child though). As they go through puberty, their gut microbiome also changes. They should then be able to tolerate our Adult Live Cultures with Fibre which have a higher number of CFU’s (50 Billion CFU to be exact).
Is there sugar or fat in it?
No, there is no sugar or fat in our Kid’s Live Cultures with Fibre supplement.
