Probiotics do not cause seizures.

It is best for children to get them out of food.

For example, high quality yogurt.

Fermented foods.

I see no need to give a 3 year old a pill, which is not likely to work or be specifically needed.

Truebiotics has the typical probiotics that are found in the gut, and should not cause harm to anyone.

please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
