Beat con­sti­pa­tion for a hap­pier child

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - World Milk Day -

CON­STI­PA­TION in chil­dren is a com­mon prob­lem that cre­ates an on­slaught of headache for many par­ents.

A child suf­fer­ing from this con­di­tion will show symp­toms such as less fre­quent bowel move­ments (less than three times a week), dry and hard stools, pain when pass­ing stool and a small amount of blood on the stool sur­face and di­a­per.

Chronic con­sti­pa­tion may lead to com­pli­ca­tions such as vom­it­ing, fever, stom­ach ache, poor ap­petite and an ir­ri­ta­ble or un­happy con­sti­tu­tion.

To ad­dress the prob­lem of con­sti­pa­tion in chil­dren, Mori­naga Chil-Kid is en­riched with var­i­ous en­rich­ing in­gre­di­ents such as galacto-oligosac­cha­rides (GOS).

GOS is a kind of pre­bi­otic that ben­e­fits bowel func­tion by stim­u­lat­ing the growth and ac­tiv­ity of ben­e­fi­cial bac­te­ria in the colon.

This in turns helps to in­crease the fre­quency of defe­ca­tion and pro­motes both nor­mal and soft tool.

Stud­ies have shown that GOS can also re­duce al­ler­gies, im­prove calcium and mag­ne­sium ab­sorp­tion, re­duce the chance of in­fec­tious diseases, in­crease bone den­sity and re­duce the sever­ity of cold and flu.

Ad­di­tion­ally, Mori­naga Chil-Kid is for­ti­fied with DHA omega-3 fatty acid and arachi­donic acid.

These in­gre­di­ents are known to help with im­mu­nity and blood clot­ting, as well as the de­vel­op­ment of other vi­tal func­tions in the body such as the brain, eyes and heart.

Mori­naga Chil-kid is also en­riched with five nu­cleotidesm which help lessen the risk of di­ar­rhoea in chil­dren and en­able bet­ter re­sponse to vac­ci­na­tion.

These nu­cleo­tides also let chil­dren pro­duce more an­ti­bod­ies and other im­mune cells.
