Taking A Probiotic to Help Stay Well This School Year
The girls were so excited to start off the new school year and I can’t believe we’re already nearly a month into the new year. Getting back to a regular school routine can be tough. It takes a few weeks for us to get into a rhythm of waking up, getting dressed and brushed and out the door. Not to mention all the extra responsibilities that come with school – homework, making lunches, school events and the extracurricular activities.
It can become stressful if you let it and being stressed can weaken your immune system. This year I’m taking a new approach and trying to be more organized and thus more laid back and doing our best to stay well and avoid getting sick.
Making lunches and setting out clothes the night before helps take a load off in the morning but I’ve also been more careful about taking my vitamins and I’ve introduced the probiotic Bio-Kult into our daily diet.
Bio-Kult is a multi-strain probiotic formula that makes sure you’re supported from multiple angles. Compared to a single strain probiotic, Bio-Kult’s unique 14-strain formula will provide better support against harmful bacteria making sure you get as many benefits as possible and feel your best this school year.
The probiotic strains in Bio-Kult are cryoprotected during the freeze drying process, which gives two main benefits:
1. They are protected from the harsh acid environment of the stomach and are therefore able to colonize the full length of the gastrointestinal tract.
2. The process allows Bio-Kult to be stored at room temperature without the need for refrigeration.
Bio-Kult can be used on a continuous basis or for a short period of time, e.g. when taking antibiotics.
We’ve been taking it for a few weeks now. Usually we’re not even a week into the school year before some sort of sickness bug hits our home and we’re almost a month in and just my youngest has gotten sick. It’s her first year of school so I was really expecting to get hard already with her immune system not being used to all the germs in school. Plus, I’ve noticed a difference in my energy levels I’m able to take on a lot more in a day without feeling dragged down and tired. With all the benefits we’ve seen just in the past few weeks of taking it we’re going to keep at it!
