Keeping the whole family healthy is important. While it can become hard to protect ourselves when we all live under the same roof, making sure each family member’s immune health is supported is a great first step in the right direction.
Regardless of age, a healthy body needs healthy food, regular exercise and believe it or not, a healthy gut. Between 70% – 80% of our immune system lies in our gut, so making sure our digestive systems are in the best possible shape is an important part of keeping our immune system healthy.
Gut health with probiotics
Our gut houses over 100 trillion bacteria that live happily inside us. They’re not harmful to us, but rather sit there providing an army of support for our immune system so we remain healthy.
