Should I give my 3 week old bio gaia probiotic drops to help with stomach issues?

Absolutely not.: Supplements (even if they have "natural" names like gaia) are minimally regulated by the fda. Their quality can be inconsistent, the manufacturing isn't standardized, and in no way should be given to a 3 week old whose immune system is just developing. Your baby does not need this type of bacteria in it's gut. If you think your baby has stomach issues, please talk with their doctor first. ...Read more

Do probiotics really help?

Do probiotics really help?

Help with what?: Probiotics MAY help. They are usually still alive, if stored properly all the time from production, through shipping, to being on the store shelf. The living microorganisms get weaker and die over time. The problem is that nobody can really tell how much live material was in the package to start, how much is alive when one buys it, how much survives at home, nor how much goes to one's intestine. ...Read more
