Does your child keep coming home from school with coughs, colds and tummy bugs? Children under the age of 6 will get on average 6-8 colds per year plus episodes of diarrhoea and ear infections!
One of the best kept secrets in preventing illness can be found in the gut, or the microbiome to be precise. So by supporting your Childs immune system from within will strengthen their defences against the bugs going around at schools.
70 – 80% of a Childs immune system is located in or near the gut. The gut is home to bacteria known as microbes, some of these bacteria are harmful causing infections and others are healthy and help immunity, improve digestion among other benefits. When these bacteria are balanced your system is better prepared to fight off infections.
So how can you help support your Childs immune system?
From the moment you child enters the world, the gut microbiome begins to develop, the early years of life are a critical time to grow trillions of bacteria to support their immune system. As parents you play an important role in laying the foundations for a lifetime of good health!
