The holidays are fast approaching and with it a wealth of parties, activities, and manic shopping. It also (inevitably) brings about coughs, colds, and the flu. I’m definitely a proponent of the flu shot and vitamins, but did you know that there’s another way to help protect your immune system?

Probiotics.

I have had many people ask me about Jonah and his story. Often they ask about what types of supplements we give him to ensure he stays on the right track. For us, we focus on eating healthy and supplementing with a daily probiotic.  We know how essential beneficial bacteria are in maintaining a healthy digestive balance.  This is important because a healthy digestive balance supports a healthy immune system,  70 percent of your immune system is located in your digestive tract.

Lexi with Glitter, Inc talks about using a probiotic as a Parenting Hack for her baby girl.

Parenting is scary and overwhelming and utterly amazing all at the same time. One of the easiest decisions we’ve made, and probably one of my best parenting hacks yet, was adding daily probiotics to Scarlett’s diet. At just a few months old we started adding probiotics to her bottles on her pediatrician’s recommendation (she has acid reflux and probiotics definitely helped.) I’m so glad we started the routine early.

Jessica with Modern Day Moms shares her love of probiotics.

I have been a believer in  probiotics for quite some time. Probiotics promote bacterial balance in our bodies to boost our immune system and reduce infections. Anytime I have had any sort of digestion trouble, I reach for my probiotics and am always  amazed at how quickly I start to feel better. Even though I realized the benefits of probiotics long ago, it never occurred to me to supplement my kids’ diets with probiotics as well. With many potential benefits and nothing to lose, we have added FlorastorKids Probiotics to our daily vitamin regimen.

Claire with Casual Claire reveals her ways to raise a healthier family.

We’ve been switching to all natural products, eating healthier, taking nightly walks as a family… but, we get the extra push that we need from taking probiotics—all four of us.

In addition to immune strength, probiotics are great for gut health and keeping you biotic-driven, confident, and strong.

Amy with Mom Spark shares 5 ways to keep kids active and healthy during the winter.

From Halloween through New Year’s Day, it seems like I’m trapped in a nonstop fight to keep everyone in the family healthy. Part of it, of course, is the weather changing. There are new allergens in the air and we spend more time indoors, which means we’re breathing each other’s germs more than usual. Then there are all the changes to our diet: Halloween candy, holiday meals, and just the general abundance of treats this time of year. It can certainly do a number on our digestive systems. Not to worry, though! These five tips will  help keep your  family healthy through the holiday season —and beyond!
