Page 26 of 31 | # 51| Page 27 Guard against germ spread Fighting germs doesn't technically boost immunity, but it's a great way to reduce stress on your child's immune system. Make sure your kids wash their hands often—and with soap. You should pay particular attention to their hygiene before and after each meal and after playing outside, handling pets, blowing their nose, using the bathroom, and arriving home from daycare. When you're out, carry disposable wipes for quick cleanups. To help kids get into the hand-washing habit at home, let them pick out their own colorful hand towels and soap in fun shapes and scents. Another key germ-busting strategy: "If your child does get sick, throw out her toothbrush right away," says Barbara Rich, D.D.S., a spokesperson for the Academy of General Dentistry. A child can't catch the same cold or flu virus twice, but the virus can hop from toothbrush to toothbrush, infecting other family members. If it's a bacterial infection, such as strep throat, however, your child can reinfect themselves with the same germs that got them sick in the first place. In that case, tossing the toothbrush protects both your child and the rest of your family. You've probably heard a great deal lately about probiotics and how beneficial they are for pretty much every part of your body. But not all probiotics are created equal. Let's look at one we use here in our Probulin digestive probiotics, and why it's so effective. Bifidobacterium bifidum (B. bifidum) is a probiotic that occurs naturally in the gut flora, residing in the colon. Supplementing your diet with B. bifidum is associated with a range of health benefits—some localized to the digestive system. So how does B. Bifidum probiotic bacteria help you? 1. Facilitates Synthesis of Essential Vitamins Bifidum assists in the synthesis of B-complex vitamins (niacin, thiamin, and riboflavin), which support cellular growth, fight free radicals, support healthy aging, and support cardiovascular health. B. bifidum also assists the body in the manufacture of vitamin K, which supports healthy red blood cell formation. 2. Supports Immune Health and Aids Digestion A naturally occurring form of gut flora, B. bifidum helps maintain a healthy bacterial balance in the intestine and assists in proper digestion and processing of nutrients. By doing so, it supports the body's healthy immune response, helping to also support digestive health. 3. Helps with Occasional Diarrhea Supplementation with B. bifidum may support healthy bacterial balance and thus reduces stool frequency and mild intestinal cramping associated with occasional diarrhea. B.bfidum has been shown to have a positive supporting effects on skin health among many other amazing ways it can support your health. In other words, you really can't beat it. It's truly one of the most effective probiotics available! Key Bacteria Strain in Probulin's Digestive Probiotics Probulin utilizes B.
