If you have kids, I’m sure there has been a time or two when boosting your kid’s digestive health and immune system is top of mind. Did you know 70 percent of your immune system is in your digestive tract? Honestly, I had no idea how much your digestive health has to do with your immune system. Since a healthy digestive balance supports a healthy immune system, it’s important that we learn to associate the two – particularly when we have kids.
Here are a few ways to boost your kids’ immune system and digestive health:
Healthy Diet – Healthy eating is important if you are looking to boost your kid’s digestive balance and immune system. Serve plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, and whole grains, and avoid sugar, food intolerances, processed foods, and preservatives.
Teach Kids to Manage Stress – Adults are not the only people who get stressed; children also feel stress and their bodies respond the same way as an adult’s body but they may not know how to handle it. Stress isn’t good for anything, and it’s important for parents to not only recognize when kids feel stressed but to take action. Don’t forget to teach them better ways to handle stress. As parents, I think it’s also important to make sure children are allowed plenty of sleep and downtime. Regular exercise, down time, meditation, and yoga can all help reduce stress for kids and adults alike.
Sleep – Sleep plays a huge part in our life and it’s hard to be healthy without enough sleep. Remember, kids require more sleep than adults, and teens are particularly apt to skimp on sleep. Sleep is essential for digestive immune system health. Try to maintain a regular bedtime schedule as a family.
Exercise – Get your kids up and outside and let them play! Not only will they be getting all that extra energy out and have a blast, they’ll be building strong, healthy bodies.
Use a probiotic – Using a probiotic like Florastor can not only help your child’s digestive balance but also strengthen his or her immune system. Yes, Florastor will support your child’s immune system and health. It’s done a great job for my kids!
My son gets constipated if he doesn’t take a probiotic, or the brand of probiotic doesn’t work. So far I’ve only found two brands of probiotic that work for my son but, Florastor is by far, the best. And get this, I don’t even need to fight or beg the kids to take their probiotic every day.
Florastor is the only brand of probiotic that includes Saccharomyces boulardii lyo CNCM I-745. Don’t worry I didn’t understand what that was until I went to the Florastor website and did a little reading.
Whether it’s your toddler who needs a little extra support for their digestive balance or your grandmother, Florastor can help. It works to help restore healthy digestive balance for all your family members, and ingredients are gluten-free, vegetarian, and even non-GMO.
Did you know that antibiotics kill the good and bad bacteria that is in your digestive system? It sure does, but luckily Florastor can minimize the loss of good bacteria and help you maintain healthy digestive balance because it’s naturally resistant to all antibiotics.
FlorastorKids has all the great benefits of Florastor but comes in handy-dandy little sachets with yummy tutti-frutti flavoring, so parents don’t need to argue and beg their children to take their probiotic. Just mix one powder sachet with your kid’s favorite food or drink and let FlorastorKids help build digestive balance. Plus, FlorastorKids has a three-year shelf life if kept at room temperature and it’s super handy because it doesn’t require refrigeration so busy parents can just toss a few sachets in their bag when they are on the go.
Florastor is made using natural ingredients. Try Florastor probiotic to help complete your active and healthy lifestyle. It’s as easy as taking a capsule or sachet which conveniently doesn’t need to be stored in the refrigerator. Finally, a probiotic you do not need to keep refrigerated and has a three-year shelf-life. As an adult, I prefer the capsules but my older kids without a doubt go for the capsule because it’s easy to take, but my young kids want the powder because they like the way it tastes
