As we head into fall, it’s time to start preparing for colds and viruses. Help keep your kids healthy by strengthening their immune system.
It All Starts in the Digestive System
Did you know that the “Hub” of your immune health is your digestive system?
The gastrointestinal tract contains many important components that are closely tied to the immune system. If the gastrointestinal tract is not healthy, the immune system can be adversely affected.
Your next lines of defense – the airways and lungs – serve as “gateways” to your body, performing critical functions as a first line of defense in our immune systems.
Is all Bacteria Bad For Us?
Actually, no. There are some types of bacteria that are really good for our health, such as probiotics. Probiotics are natural, “good” bacteria that help reduce the growth of harmful bacteria in our digestive tract.
The normal human digestive tract contains about 400 types of probiotic bacteria!
The largest group of probiotic bacteria in the intestine is lactic acid bacteria, of which Lactobacillus acidophilus (found in NUTRILITE Kids SEASONAL STRENGTH Probiotic) is the best known.
Probiotics in Foods
Probiotics, or active, live cultures (grown bacteria) are commonly consumed to help balance the population of friendly bacteria in the intestines, and are thought to improve intestinal function and maintain the integrity of the lining of the intestines. Probiotic foods include:
- Soy Yogurt
- Probiotic Dietary Supplements
