B. infantis is a folate-producing beneficial bacteria, primarily found in the gastrointestinal tracts of healthy infants (and human mouths). It seems to play a critical role in establishing a healthy intestinal lining and a robust and well-regulated immune system.* Research has also linked B. infantis to helping mitigate inflammation in the digestive system and throughout the body, stating that it may reduce the production of inflammatory cytokines.* Research suggests B. infantis regulates the production of tryptophan, which is the precursor for serotonin (the neurotransmitter associated with a sense of satisfaction and happiness).* A note on folate: it's one of the B vitamins responsible for tissue growth and cell function.*
Bifidobacteria are a group of bacteria that typically live in the human intestines and stomach, that help to perform essential functions like digestion and the maintenance of beneficial bacteria. One study suggests that B. bifidum may support immunity by staving off colds and touches of the flu in the winter months. Another clinical study indicates B. bifidum may help with abdominal discomfort caused by gas and bloating.* And yet another study states that B. bifidum can help with occasional diarrhea.* Clinical research suggests that B. bifidum can help maintain comfortable joint movement.* There's also a correlation to improved mental health (boosting mood and easing anxiety), as bifidobacterium is classified as a "psychobiotic", which affects central nervous system-related functions and behaviors mediated by the gut-brain-axis.
One of the first bacteria to colonize our bodies at birth, B. longum has been associated with helping to digest milk and other challenging foods, as it produces lactic acid from the fermentation of sugar in the gut.* Research suggests that B. longum may support immunity and growth in children.* It's also linked to helping maintain healthy cholesterol levels already within a normal range.* And it's been studied to help alleviate stress.
L. salivarius is one of the most prevalent probiotic species in human saliva. It produces organic acids, such as lactic acid and acetic acid from carbohydrates. L. salivarius seems to help keep the microbial population in the mouth healthy.* Also, several clinical trials indicate that L. salivarius seems to help support the immune system and, as a result, support healthy skin.* Importantly, researchers state that it may keep the vagina healthy and comfortable by promoting a healthy pH balance.*
B. breve is one of the most helpful probiotic bacteria in the human body due to its unique ability to compete with harmful bacteria by digesting a large variety of molecules. It's also prevalent in the colons of breastfed babies. B. breve is linked to helping with occasional constipation in children.* And when combined with a gluten-free (real food) diet, B. breve promotes microbial balance in the digestive tracts of children.* B. breve seems to play a role in helping to establish a healthy microbiome, based on trials involving preterm babies. And, clinical research suggests it may be useful in recolonizing the guts of children who have undergone chemotherapy.*
A transient probiotic bacteria that inhabit the human intestines and the colon, B. lactis breaks down body waste and aids in the absorption of various vitamins and minerals.* One study showed that B. lactis helped preterm babies gain weight and helped develop their immune systems.* Beyond the babies, extensive research has shown that B. lactis is useful when it comes to abdominal comfort and proper digestion, helping to get the colon in shape and making occasional constipation a thing of the past.* Notably, preliminary lab research indicates B. lactis shows exciting potential in neutralizing certain issues associated with wheat.*
L. gasseri is naturally found in the human digestive and urinary tracts. It's been shown in clinical trials to help people lose weight.* Preliminary research indicates that L. gasseri may inhibit inflammation signaling at the genetic level.* L. gasseri may also support healthy cholesterol levels already within a normal range.*
Fixed my babies constipation issues!
Yay!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful review with us! We love to hear when our Infant Probiotics help our little ones and their gut health! Take care :)
So thankful this works!
Our 2 month old son has struggled with so much pain from constipation and gas over the past few weeks but he's been taking this probiotic for just a week so far and he went from pooping every few days to every day, and is SO much happier, like a normal baby again! We are so thankful for Smidge and that it has helped his digestive system to regulate. Highly recommend and the cost is worth it as the bottle lasts a long time based on the small dosage required.
Thank you for your lovely review about Smidge Infant Probiotic. We are thrilled to hear it has been helpful for your baby. It is very difficult to watch an infant struggle with constipation or tummy issues.

The best probiotic!
My boys and I have used this probiotic for 3 years now. Though it costs a lot upfront it actually ends up being cheaper than other name brand probiotics. We have had many digestive issues/food intolerances in the past but since taking this probiotic our bodies are much happier and healthier. It works for my babies and for me! Worth every penny!

I'm glad I gave these a chance
My toddler has a histamine intolerance and had not been able to tolerate any type of probiotic so I was a little hesitant to buy these but after reading so many good reviews I decided to go for it & I am so glad I did. This is the only probiotic that does not give her stomach pain & the only thing that has worked for her constipation. She is now going to the bathroom every day since taking these. I cannot recommend these enough. Well worth the price.
