Evidence-based Benefits

Composition-specific Benefits

PDS-08™ is the first 9-strain pediatric synbiotic to be studied in a double-blind, randomized 12-week trial in a pediatric population, demonstrating that it is tolerable and health-promoting for children and adolescents. The following benefits were observed in the composition as a whole:

Easy, frequent bowel movements.
Easy, frequent bowel movements.

Studied in a pediatric population1 to support digestive function and regular, healthy bowel movements in children with fewer than five bowel movements per week.2

Promotes healthy regularity.
Promotes healthy regularity.

Maintains healthy bowel movement regularity1 among non-constipated2 children without creating hyper-frequency of bowel movements.

Exceptionally well tolerated.

No observed side effects or GI distress (such as pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea1) as commonly reported with many fiber-based dietary supplements, probiotics, and high-dose fermentable prebiotics.

Increase of <i>Bifidobacterium</i>.

Significant increase in the concentration of SCFAs present in the colon compartment of SHIME®,5 suggesting that PDS-08™ supports the production of SCFAs in the lower gut.

Strain-specific Benefits

In addition to conducting a trial on the PDS-08™ formulation as a whole, all strains included have been independently studied in clinical trials for efficacy and tolerability in a pediatric population.

Bridges thefiber gap.

Fiber is one of the hardest nutrients to incorporate into a child's diet—it can also directly impact the health of the gut microbiome.

95% of children and adults in the US do not reach theirdaily recommended fiber intake.

Recommended pediatric daily fiber intake

With 5g of prebiotic fiber in one dose, PDS-08™ makes it easier for parents to meet their child’s recommended daily fiber intake.

GroupGrams of fiber/day
Children 1-3 years19 grams
Children 4-8 years25 grams
Boys 9-13 years31 grams
Girls 9-13 years26 grams
With 5 grams of fiber per serving, PDS-08™ is a meaningful complement to a healthy diet.

A new standardin probiotics.

How bacteria are cultured impacts their viability. We optimize our biofermentation for pH, temperature, and 28 other critical growth factors. Our mediums contain no meat or dairy.
7 of the 9 strains are microencapsulated with a lipid coating to further protect from stomach acids, digestive enzymes and bile salts during digestion. This also means that refrigeration is not required.
We do extensive lot-to-lot testing at each step and on the final product. With 50+ QA/QC checkpoints, we monitor purity and strength under both US and EU protocols, including cGMP + HACCP.
All ingredients and their included dosages have been specifically studied in a pediatric population.

Hi, we're SciCare. We're your team of experts in scientific communication and education. We know how hard it is to get answers so we review, research, and answer health and science-related questions from our community.
Oh, that's cool—even if I'm not a member yet, can I still ask you questions?
Absolutely, that's what we're here for 🤓
We believe better information=better choices, so ask away!
Pediatricians + Health Practitioners

Ask us about dosages, medication interactions, clinical research, and more.

Parents + Caregivers

Ask us anything—we know how hard making the right decisions can be on a minute-by-minute basis.

For the curious.

Pick a time of day to start PDS-08™ with your child—you know your child’s routine best. It may be easiest to coincide with a mealtime (and it’s optimal to consume PDS-08™ with food).

Take 1 sachet from your BacTrac™ container and pour it into a cold or room-temperature food or drink (Not hot, please.)

Mix well. Stir into food until fully mixed. If stirring into a drink, shake thoroughly in a closed bottle. Bacteria are fragile, so please no heat, plenders, or food processors, as these can impact the viability of the probiotics.

Enjoy within 30 minutes. Yes, this means all of it! As the probiotics and prebiotics are exposed to moisture, they activate and start to interact with one another. If left to sit for too long, this could lead to digestive discomfort after consumption.

Align the top of your BacTrac™ container with the day that you are starting. PDS-08™ doesn't require refrigeration, so feel free to store it on your countertop.

Repeat and track so you never miss a day.

Every individual’s body is different, and the benefits one may “feel” (e.g. ease of bloating or easy, frequent poops) are often just the most visceral ones.

One may feel results in as little as 24–-48 hours due to localized digestive support, though other longer- term benefits for gut-immune function or respiratory health may take longer, or may not be tangibly noticeable, which is normal. As long as daily intake is continued, PDS-08™ is doing the work inside to program, sustain, and enhance your child’s health.

PDS-08™ is generally safe to take and there are no known contraindications to use. Our probiotic strains have GRAS and/or QPS status, which designates them as safe for consumption by the United States and European Union, respectively. That said, we would also suggest consulting with a physician or pediatrician before adding any new product to a child’s regimen.

There are no known contraindications with PDS-08™ Pediatric Daily Synbiotic and medications, therefore PDS-08™ would be generally safe to take alongside any prescription or over-the-counter medications. However, we always recommend consulting with your doctor or family physician so they may advise with the complete knowledge of your child's health history.

PDS-08™ Pediatric Daily Synbiotic adheres to vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, and peanut-free diets and is free of 14 classes and over 20 total allergens as defined by the European Food and Safety Authority (EFSA), including dairy, gluten, soy, corn, sesame seeds, soy, and nuts (almond, brazil, cashew, hazelnut, macadamia, peanut, pecan, pine, pistachio, and walnut).

Additionally, PDS-08™ is sugar-free, glyphosate/AMPA-free, preservative-free, and Prop. 65-compliant.

Your monthly subscription includes a 30-day supply of PDS-08™, each dose housed in biofilm sachets. Your first month’s shipment is your Welcome Kit. It includes a refillable aluminum BacTrac™ container holding the first month’s supply of PDS-08™ as well as some reading materials.

Each month, you will receive a 30-day supply of PDS-08™, which you can store in your refillable BacTrac™.

Yes.
