Also, both my kids have been sick with a stomach bug for 6 days now, it is so bad tummy tuneup has no effect whatsoever, can this be given to a 5 year old? If so, when it comes to combatting a stubborn bug, how much is safe for children? Thank you!
We would suggest that you speak with your care provider about how often they would suggest you taking Gut Guardian since they have access to your health history to know what would be most beneficial. We have used Gut Guardian in times of intensive immune system support as often as three times a day.
We also suggest speaking with a care provider about how often Tummy Tune Up would be appropriate for your 5 year old. We personally have used it as often as needed, every 2 hours (open the capsule up and powder on the tongue) with our children when actively battling a tummy bug.
Hope you all feel better soon!
We always suggest working with your care provider to review all new supplements to make sure they are appropriate for your specific health situation and pregnancy as each individuals situation is totally unique and they are in the best position to be familiar with health history and be able to make recommendations based on that.
The products we've had care providers use and recommend to their clients in pregnancy that help with dealing with candida/yeast issues are our Yeast Assassin Lite http://www.beeyoutiful.com/yeast-assassin-lite.html. Support products are Digestive Enzyme (contains an enzyme that helps to break down yeast cell walls) and the Probiotic Blend Acidophilus Blast, usually followed up with a more broad spectrum probiotic like Ultimate Defense or Gut Guardians.

Congratulations on your pregnancy and best wishes to you in your pursuit of health!
Gut Guardian was able to reach the intestines without the enteric coating. So the formulators felt it was not necessary in this case.
We do suggest refrigeration for optimal potency.
I would definitely suggest that you try using Gut Guardian for your daughter. It sounds like she would be the perfect canidate for Gut Guardian. Then as she begins to feel she has restored her gut, she could step back down to Tummy Tuneup. The time table for that is very individual to the person, with symptoms clearing up and normalized digestion with strong immune system being great signs of restored gut flora.
