Protexin to Protect a Child from Travel Stress and a Bum Tummy

Protexin Restore

Protexin Restore is a good probiotic supplement for infants and young children.

We are preparing for a morning flight tomorrow to Cebu City. We are going to attend a wedding on Sunday so the entire family is going. But for us, it is going to be a week-long trip where we will be taking Dindin places. A part of preparing for the trip is giving Dindin a probiotic supplement called Protexin Restore. That is because I believe in prevention more than cure.

Here is a description of the product from the company’s website.

Protexin Protect. For babies and very young children. Restore is a unique product for young children, designed to help restore a healthy intestinal flora after a course of antibiotics or following a digestive upset. It can also help combat the new germs and viruses children encounter when starting or returning to preschool. Restore contains the child-specific strain Bifidobacterium infantis. It is available in one-a-day sachets, and the powder is easily dissolved in water, milk or juice, or can be added to food.

This is not a paid ad. We have been giving Dindin Protexin Restore since it was first recommended for her gastroenteritis as an infant. We have since been giving it to her on a regular basis.

The most common probiotic that we have been exposed to is Yakult–the milk drink with Lactobacilli. But that is just one strain. Protexin contains seven. It costs around P70 per sachet, which you can give once a day, so I try to give it to Dindin at least once a month. Sometimes, if I can remember it, I give it to her every two-three week. And whenever she is not in top form, like having cough or when traveling, I give more. For this trip, I bought two packs. I gave one today and I plan to give her another one in the middle of the trip. That should protect her tummy especially when eating foods and drinks from restaurants.

Dennis and I also take Protexin for adults, which are in capsule form. These come in different variants, namely Balance, Protect and Vitality. We also take these from time to time. The most expensive variant costs about P40. All these are available at Mercury Drugstore.

    I didn’t know that you could also use Protexin for travels or daily use (well, I know Yakult hehehe.) because I only remembered that when I was asked to buy Protexin for my son who was confined 3 years ago due to diarrhea/dehydration.

    This is a big help for my pamangkins whose tummies are so sensitive especially when travelling all the way from our province to Cebu City. I will surely recommend this one to my Kuya. Thanks to this useful information.

    My son also had a gastroenteritis on her first year but we were not recommended by this product. I really hope we knew this earlier since we travel most of the time from Baguio to Bulacan before..
