Why Probiotics?

Research has shown that different probiotic strains treat different symptoms. Colic Calm Probiotic has 5-key strains that are specific to helping with colic and intestinal issues:

Why Probiotics?

Bifidobacterium Bifidum UABb-10™
B.bifidum has been shown to normalize bowel habits, include stool frequency and consistency. Additionally, this specific strain has demonstrated improvement in symptoms of abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea and constipation.

Bifidobacterium Lactis UABla-12™
B.Lactis UABla-12™ , in combination with the other four strains of Colic Calm Probiotic propriety blend, has been shown to improve immune health in infants including a positive impact on microbiome functionality, atopic dermatitis, respiratory tract health, and intestinal microbiota.

Lactobacillus Acidophilus DDS®-1
L. acidophilus is a naturally occurring bacteria found in your intestines. This specific strain of probiotic is used for the improvement in symptoms of lactose intolerance and has been shown to improve the impact of intestinal health specific to stool regulation, consistency and the treatment of constipation.

Lactobacillus Reuteri UALre-16™
L. reuteri is a probiotic bacterium that is found in different body sites, including the gastrointestinal tract. This is one of the most well studied probiotic strains for infants, children and adults and the benefits include overall promotion of health, reduction in infections, improvement in nutrient absorption, and improvement of food tolerance.

Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG
Common confusion with Probiotics relates to the CFU or “colony forming units” count. The CFU quantifies how many bacteria are living and active. Colic Calm Probiotic is specially formulated to delivers 5 BILLION CFU** per serving. So your little one is getting the highest quality daily digestive maintenance.


Recognizing the sensitive and over-stimulated baby is often the most difficult for parents. Keeping outings and visitors to a minimum for a few weeks may decrease the degree of gassiness and fussiness. Allowing the infant to have quiet and uninterrupted sleep helps prevent over-tiredness, increased irritability and unnecessary crying episodes.

If the signs of hyper-lactation seem familiar, then contact a lactation specialist to help correct the problem. Avoiding the foods mentioned above for at least a few days may help indicate how much of a problem they cause baby. If gassiness and fussiness are excessive around the clock, a two-week trial elimination of dairy, soy and peanuts will show if mother’s diet is a contributing factor.

Burping the baby thoroughly will reduce the amount of air in the stomach, so that it does not pass on to the intestinal tract. Unfortunately, burping is not 100% effective at eliminating gas, since it has absolutely no effect on the gas created in the intestines during normal digestion. There are various physical therapies to relieve gas, such as baby massage, which may prove somewhat effective in helping baby to release gas. Simply applying light pressure on the tummy can soothe and help. You can also try carrying baby in the “football hold” – face down on your forearm with baby’s legs straddling your elbow and baby’s chin resting in your hand. The gentle pressure placed on the little tummy can help soothe and release baby’s gas.
If this does not work, there are several treatments available for infant gas. As always, you should consult your GP first before giving baby any medications, remedies or supplements.

Approaching the problem of infant gas and fussiness as a multi-level problem is usually most effective. Probiotics can be an excellent choice for treating infant gas symptoms. Colic Calm Probiotic is allergen-free, side-effect-free, and has a special 5-strain formulation with guaranteed live cultures.

Many parents and caretakers have been relieved to find a remedy with 5 strains and no synthetic ingredients, just active cultures and MTC oil. Colic Calm Probiotics can also have a long-term effect at preventing bloating, stomach cramps, and frequency of loose stool. It is also extremely effective on gas created during introduction of new foods into babies’ delicate digestive tracts.

Remember that babies are just getting accustomed to this world. As they grow older, most will become far less gassy and fussy. Their digestive tracts will learn how to function well. In the first three months of life, babies are not well-equipped to calm themselves.
