School Bathrooms, pencil sharpeners and monkey bars. No matter how many disinfecting Wipes teachers use to help combat cold bugs, schools are a virtual minefield of germs.

With students in close quarters all day, this creates the perfect environment for germs to settle in and spread.

No parent likes to see their child falling sick and suffering (let alone get sick themselves). However, there are things you can do to reduce the chance of this from happening. Ensuring your kids have a healthy diet along with a probiotic to support for their immune system can help to reduce the incidence of cold symptoms and/or the duration of a cold.

Probiotics support the body’s natural defenses, starting in the digestive tract by naturally restoring the balance of “good” bacteria in your gut. 70 percent 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.

Probiotics are very helpful for kids going back to school. They are an excellent preventative medicine to help ensure your student’s health and wellness throughout the year.
