There is nothing worse than having your child get sick with painful tummy problems. Kids tend to have a higher risk of getting digestive health-related diseases such as diarrhea and constipation from harmful bacteria. A stomachache isn't only uncomfortable; it alters the child's mood and his or her attitude for the day.

What are probiotics, which have been showing up in a lot of kids' products lately? As a mom, you want to know what probiotics are and which one to choose for your child.

Probiotics are live microorganisms that help maintain the balance of good and bad bacteria in the digestive tract.It works like this: A human digestive tract has about 100 trillion healthy bacteria. Bacteria aid in digestion and help the body defend itself against illness2. Thus, probiotics can aid with immunity and help protect you from common colds and flu.

Every person, child or adult, needs a balance of good bacteria in the body. However, this balance is easily upset by a number of factors such as a poor diet, stress orby taking antibiotics and other medication.

Children can get probiotics from eating yogurt and beverages that contain probiotics. However, the amount and quality of probiotics in those food and beverages maynot be enough.

13 Reasons Why Katherine Langford Loves Simon

Australian actress Katherine Langford has garnered global recognition and critical acclaim as 'Hannah Baker' in Netflix series "13 Reasons Why" which became a worldwide phenomenon shortly after its 2017 release on the global platform.  

Katherine plays Leah, best friend to her secretly gay friend whom she also has feelings for in her latest, most talked about movie within the young adult sphere "Love, Simon" that also stars Nick Robinson in the title role along with Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhamel, Alexandra Shipp, Logan Miller, Jorge Lendeborg Jr. and Keiynan Lonsdale.  

"Love, Simon" is based on Becky Albertalli's book "Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda" where  not openly gay Simon Spier starts a secret email flirtation with another closeted classmate. But when one of his emails falls into the wrong hands, Simon's secret is at risk of going public.  And if Simon won't agree with his clasmate… well, his sexual identity might just become public knowledge. Worse, the privacy of 'Blue', the pen name of the boy he's been emailing, will be public too.

 Here's why Katherine has so much love for "Love, Simon" and the rest of her co-stars:

1.       It kind of encompasses a lot about what it felt like what being in high school is about.
2.       The movie encourages people to be brave. 
3.       From her first TV show (13 Reasons Why) to her first film "Love, Simon", being so different yet united it the sense that both stories are  authentic, truthful and meaningful.
4.       The set of "Love, Simon" was really lighthearted, but with passion and real focus. 
5.       The journey of seeing someone realize that they need to truly be themselves by admitting their sexuality is a fairly universal thing today.  
6.       The film is a John Hughes meets John Green – a great mix of classic and contemporary relatable high school characters and issues. 
7.       This is a big studio making a pro-LGBTQ film, which is very cool. 
8.       Movie is based on the award-winning bestselling beloved book by Becky Albertalli "Simon vs The Homo Sapien's Agenda"
9.       The movie is something new and different and fresh that feels like it hasn't been done before.
10.   Her character Leah is very creative that manifests in her daily choice of fashion, depending on her mood. 
11.   Director Greg Berlanti - "He was the perfect person to direct this for a number of reasons, he has such a vision that is kind of nostalgic whilst also being current."
12.   Her role as Leah resonated well with that feeling in high school wanting to really be your authentic self.
13.   "I think it is something you will go into and come out of feeling better but also take away a really important message from."
Jennifer Garner who plays mom to Simon says, "This movie is about a number of things, including family.  The family you are born in to and the family that you create for yourself with friends.  Especially that precious group when you are in those teenage years and they mean everything to you.  It's also about having the courage to really stand up for yourself and say what you need to say."

"Love, Simon" is now showing in theatres nationwide from 20th Century Fox.

Check out the character posters below and watch Solo: A Star Wars Story in Philippine cinemas May 25.

Josh Brolin Sheds Thanos Skin, Inhabits Highly-Anticipated “DEADPOOL 2” as Cable

After breaking box office records, Ryan Reynolds returns as "Deadpool" and this time the Merc with the Mouth's movie is bigger and more badass than ever.


"Deadpool" debuted in February 2016 with the biggest R-rated opening of all time and went on to be the highest-grossing R-rated film in history with more than $750-million globally. "Deadpool" was also honored as the first live-action superhero movie to be nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Picture in the Comedy or Musical category, and Ryan Reynolds was also nominated as Best Actor.


Academy Award-nominated actor Josh Brolin has starred in a slate of films, ranging from "No Country For Old Men" and "Sicario," all the way back to the now-classic "Goonies." In "Deadpool 2," Brolin stars as one of the most highly-anticipated screen personas in recent history: the time-traveling Cable, a warrior infected with the techno-organic virus that renders him cybernetic. 


"One of the things that made "Deadpool" popular was that, while it was silly and irreverent, it also had a heart and real angst and grounded emotions," says writer/executive producer Rhett Reese. "Wade Wilson is someone who leads a pretty tormented life and lives on the edge of society. We wanted to carry that into "Deadpool 2," and we worked in some pretty serious, dark plots. Deadpool is still on the fringe, he hasn't really made much of his life and he is still scrounging to get by – which is always endearing. The Cable character has also lost a great deal. He has lost his wife and daughter at the hands of a mad man, and he's doing anything in his power, including traveling back in time, to solve that issue and bring them back. In this, there is an undercurrent of real emotion and depth that counterbalances the humor. It's not just farce or a romp. It has real emotional underpinnings and I think the combination is where we like to live."


                "Cable is a stalwart of X-Force," says writer/executive producer Paul Wernick. "Deadpool is the gateway into the X-Force world, and an essential part. Cable is the straight man to Deadpool's madness. He provides an almost parallel emotional core. Despite them being very different, they're very similar in that they're both broken. They've both lost something and are in search of something. Ultimately, they find each other."


                "Josh is a treasure and one of the great actors of our generation. We're just privileged to have him," says Wernick. "Josh is incredible," adds Sood. "He personifies this character that's been a fan favorite for years. I think it's going to be really exciting for everybody to see it on the screen. It was great for us, because we got to look at all those wonderful Cable - Deadpool stories and try to get the essence of what that relationship was and translate it to the screen. They are incredibly strong-willed personalities. Sparks fly between them. The movie is not a buddy movie in any way, but you can see the beginnings of a partnership that may yield even bigger results in the future."


                "Deadpool" creator Rob Liefeld, also created Cable. He says, "Josh Brolin could not be more perfect for the role. He's one of the most talented actors of all space and time!" Liefeld recalls meeting Brolin on set and thinking, "I'm meeting Cable! How awesome is this!?! I dare anyone to meet one of your own creations and not get umpteen butterflies in your stomach."   To morph into the fighting machine Cable, Brolin worked out diligently for months and was also extremely disciplined in his dietary habits. He was very proud of getting into what he calls, "the best shape of my life."


Rated R-16 by the MTRCB, "Deadpool 2" opens in Philippine cinemas on May 16from 20th Century Fox – with early previews on May 15 starting 5:00pm at selected theaters nationwide (check cinemas near you!).

“Teen Wolf” Tyler Posey Plays a Twisted Game of “TRUTH OR DARE”

He became a household name when he starred as Scott McCall on the long-running MTV series Teen Wolf, which aired its 100th and final episode in September 2017.  


Now, Tyler Posey joins Lucy Hale (TV's Pretty Little Liars) as college seniors Lucas and Olivia  in Truth or Dare, a supernatural thriller from Blumhouse Productions (Happy Death Day, Get Out, Split). 


In the film, a group of college friends heads to Mexico for one last getaway before they begin their post-grad lives and head their separate ways.  As with any core crew, long-brewing romances and allegedly buried conflicts begin to emerge as they prepare to say goodbye.  When a handsome stranger cons Olivia into getting her friends to play a supposedly silly game of "Truth or Dare," they awaken a trickster demon that is hell-bent on getting them to share their darkest secrets or confront their deepest fear…and if they don't, they'll pay the ultimate price.  


Ultimately, the trickster forces the group to decide how far they are willing to go to protect their friends.  "Olivia and Markie's relationship is the central one in the film, which is why it has to be tested," shares director Jeff Wadlow.  "Both of them are in love with Lucas, and he's the third point of that triangle.  They have to learn what it is like to sacrifice everything for the ones you love, if they want to make it out alive."


Lucas is not simply Markie's boyfriend, but he shares an unspoken crush with Olivia.  They've known each other since they were freshmen, and have made peace with the idea that they're just going to be friends.  A good guy with a strong heart, Lucas can be tough when he needs to be.  That makes for quite the compelling character, because he's about to be in a situation where he's got to make some life-or-death choices.  The first person to believe that Olivia is telling the truth is Lucas, because he gets his turn after her.  When you get a turn, you realize that this is not a hoax.  This is not a joke.  This is happening for real.  


Posey reflects that Lucas is just as unbelieving as the rest of his group that the events are going down…until the game burns the question into his forearm.  "Even though Lucas doesn't know how to handle everything that's coming at them, he's good at calculating and being methodical.  If Olivia's the brains of the group and the leader, he's the idea guy.  He's trying to maintain peace in the group as they learn to deal with what's happening."


The actor particularly loved Lucas' trip back to Rosarito—alongside Markie and Olivia—to find the root of evil and stop the game once and for all.  "Our characters return to Mexico to talk to this woman and survived a massacre, and try and figure out a way to break the curse," explains Posey.  "While we're at it, we're trying to convince the same creep that brought us out to play 'Truth or Dare' to begin with to cut his own tongue out!"


Already a recognizable television star due to the tremendous fan base of Teen Wolf, Posey has begun to establish himself on the big screen as well.  In 2016, Posey starred in Kevin Smith's feature comedy Yoga Hosers.  


In Philippine cinemas May 9Truth or Dare is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
