Can probiotics protect your family from winter illnesses?

As the leaves fall and the seasons change, so too comes the dreaded cold and flu season.  We all do our best to keep ourselves and our families healthy but is there something you can really do to help support yours and their immune system?  Since over 75% of your immune system is found in your gut, it only makes sense that the best chance you have to stay healthy is to keep your digestive systems as healthy as possible.  It may also surprise you to know that the gut is the largest immune organ in your body.  So having a healthy gut is key to your overall health.

One of the most important things to do to keep your gut healthy is to supplement with a probiotic.  Why? Because probiotics can provide a multitude of benefits for your immune system.  When probiotics are abundant in your body, it is much harder for bacteria that cause illness to take hold.

Probiotic is the name given to a class of “friendly bacteria” found in your intestines. Without probiotics, the body’s complex system of digestive organs is unable to properly digest food or absorb nutrients – probiotics inhibit harmful bacteria and boost the immune system.  Unfortunately, because of the toxins in our environment, the stress of our daily lives, the sterilisation of our food, antibiotic use and diets high in sugar and fat, our guts are being stripped of all the good bacteria allowing the bad bacteria to take over – sickness soon follows.

One of the most convenient and effective ways to replace this good or “friendly” bacteria is by taking a probiotic supplement. For adults The Devon Allergy Clinic’s HIGH PRObio is a practitioner-strength, multi-strain probiotic supplement with 20 billion friendly bacteria per capsule – equivalent to 40 pots of probiotic yoghurt, but without the added sugar, dairy and fat.

It provides 8 strains of friendly lactic bacteria which should inhabit a healthy gut, and offers full-spectrum support of the upper and lower bowel.

It is critical, however, to take a probiotic that works, that is stable enough to survive the harsh conditions of the stomach. Our supplement is Micro-encapsulated for acid resistance, our probiotic contains human compatible friendly bacteria strains which are bile and acid tolerant with high adherence ability – no need to refrigerate and guaranteed to provide 20 billion live bacteria per capsule for up to 12 months.

And for our children? The Devon Allergy Clinic are pleased to introduce it’s very own brand of Tummy-Pals Powder.  Easy to take, the Tummy-Pals Powder is a child specific probiotic supplement which is tasteless and suitable for both babies and children of all ages. Containing over 7 strains of naturally occurring and beneficial bacteria it has been designed to support a healthy immune system.

Furthermore the Kids Tummy-Pals Powder is designed support healthy levels of intestinal flora, which normally occurs after a course of anti-biotics or stomach upset.  As already mentioned it can also support a healthy immune system and is perfect to give to babies, toddlers and young children who are returning to playgroups, or pre-school where germs can be most prevalent.

Taking a daily probiotic is one of the easiest and most effective ways to support your ever important immune system, so by adding this one simple addition to your daily routine may help you enjoy one of the healthiest cold and flu seasons ever!
