Antibiotics & Bacterial flora
Children are more sensitive to antibiotic treatments compared to adults, as their microbiota colonies are still developing, which leaves them more vulnerable.
Alteration of microbial populations
A lack of beneficial microbes means the body is more susceptible to illness including digestive conditions.
Children Struggle to Rebalance Bacteria
Particularly when those bacteria are reduced by antibiotics. It takes a young body a substantial amount of time to replenish the lost colonies, leaving a large window of vulnerability for gut discomfort to set in.
