As today is World Digestive Health Day I though it quite apt to post my review of Alforex Childrens Straws. As a blogger I get sent lots of press releases, some grab my attention some don’t. However this one did. For the reason being my 3 almost 4 year old has suffered on an off with digestive problems – sore tummy and constipation. I found giving him a probiotic has really helped this. However he is a very typical toddler and incredibly stubborn. I have tried probiotic sweets – limited success. Probiotic drops – he didnt like the taste! Therefore when I saw the straw I thought bingo, this willl work and it did!
In the mornings he will remind me that I have’nt given him his “cool blue straw”. The great thing is it you only need 3-4 sips from the straw for the product to work. Now for the science bit….
Alforex contains the unique 35624™ culture, developed as a precision strain which goes to work only where it is needed. The 35624™ culture has been isolated, extensively characterised and clinically studied by Scientists and Gastroenterologists. Alflorex straws have been designed to contain a small oil droplet with a daily dose of 35624™ bacteria.
They are genius, they really are. They are a tad on the pricey side at €32.95 however I give them to my son at particular times in four week blocks (ie a packs worth) such as after illness or after trips away. While pricey I do believe they are worth it as I know he is actually getting the product.
While we were sent a box for the purpose of this review, I have since purchases a further box and also the adult verison for myself and my husband. Please not im not a doctor so please do consult your doctor if you do have queries or concerns on your digestive health.
