PDX & GOS: Nutrients that promote digestive health and immunity⁶⁻⁸
PDX stands for Polydextrose, a dietary fiber that feeds beneficial bacteria throughout the large intestine. It supports the balance of the gut system by stimulating growth and activity of beneficial bacteria (gut flora)6, which benefits your child's immune system7.
PDX and GOS (Galactooligosaccharide) work together to foster the growth of good bacteria and promote digestive health. The unique blend of PDX and GOS promotes frequent and softer stools in children, and thus may help reduce the risk of occasional constipation8.
