It’s back to school time, which means keeping your children’s immune system strong is more important than ever. You want them to stay healthy all year long so they can keep up on their schoolwork and enjoy time outside playing with friends. It means safeguarding their health so they’ll be physically ready for the challenges of heading back to school. The start of the school year is when general illnesses, coughs, colds, flu crop up more frequently.
Probiotics are an excellent preventative medicine to help ensure children’s health and wellness throughout the year and you can rest easy knowing that you are doing your part to help keep your number one priority healthy this school year.
Probiotics help boost the immune system. Probiotics support the body’s natural defenses, starting in the digestive tract by naturally restoring the balance of “good” beneficial bacteria in the gut. 70% of your immune system lives in your digestive tract, so a healthy and balanced digestive system plays a very important role in strengthening your overall health and well-being. With kids now heading back indoors and spending large amounts of time in classrooms with each other, there is a dramatic increase in germ exposure and potential for kids to get sick. In a study, research was done on 326 children aged 3-5 years. They were randomly assigned to receive probiotic supplementation or placebo. Compared with placebo, the probiotic group had the following results: fever reduction 53-73%, cough reduction 41-62%, decreased runny nose 28-59% and decreased need for antibiotics 68-82%
Probiotics help with mood – this is quite a new discovery on the probiotic front. The incidence of learning challenged students continues to rise. Everything from ADD, AD/HD, Aspergers and Autism along with students experiencing anxiety and depression in school, can prove challenging for both parents and teachers. Recent research is showing new gut-brain connections as happy gut ecology seems to make for happier brains. With better mood comes greater ease and ability to learn in school and beyond.
If you are looking for a good probiotic remember that all probiotic supplements are not created equally. Many have much lower strains of beneficial bacteria and as such are often ineffective. Rawbiotics KIDS contains 14 different strains and multiple classes of live beneficial bacteria fermented at body temperature – unlike pure-culture (freeze-dried) probiotics which don’t survive stomach acid as well. These beneficial bacteria strains have shown benefit in balancing the immune system, preventing infections and allergies, reducing antibiotic-associated diarrhea and improving overall intestinal health and function.

Being healthy starts from the inside. Digestive health is linked to a huge number of wellness issues including the obvious (digestion, bowel movements and weight) as well as the not-so-obvious (mood, metabolism, the immune system, and behavioural issues such as ADD, ADHD and Autism).
