Disclosure: I received Zahler Kidophilus Plus complimentary for testing purposes
Everyone’s headed back to school and one of the worries at the top of moms list is how to fight back to school germs. Actually, the illness that comes with germs. You see last year was the youngest first year at school (kindergarten) and boy did his body take a beating. He had to have picked up every germ, cold and downright ickiness that was at the school. He even came down with a bout of pneumonia. Although, I had heard many people say that this would happen I wasn’t prepared for it because it didn’t happen to my oldest son. So this year I am adding a new weapon in our arsenal in this fight against germs.
Ways to Fight Back To School Germs
In a perfect world my children and yours would heed the advice of their mothers to avoid germs when they go back to school.
- Wash hands frequently
- Avoid touching mouth and face with hands
- Use the hand sanitizer we send in and attach to their book bags
- Avoid sharing food
- Sneeze into your sleeve to avoid spreading germs
2 Healthy Lifestyle
A healthy lifestyle equals a strong immune system.
- Eat a diet rich in vegetables and fruit (low in sugar)
- Exercise regularly
- Get plenty of rest
Here is where I dropped the ball while I was giving my sons a multi vitamin high in vitamin C I wasn’t giving them probiotics. But this year I have armed myself and sons with Zahler Kidophilus Plus Probiotic Formula for Children.
With a high potent blind of four distinct probiotic strains, including the well know I acidophilus, Kidophilus Plus works quickly and effectively to suppress the growth of potentially harmful bacteria, improve immune function, reduce allergies and inflammation, and enhance the protective barrier of the digestive tract.
Zahler’s Kidophilus Plus contains 10 billion live and active CFUs, which effectively puts the brakes on the growth of disease-causing bacteria, such as salmonella and shigella-caused dysentery, diarrhea, and even virus caused flu. it also clears up yeast infections, reduces bad breath and flatulence, aids in digestion and reduces the incidence of constipation, thanks to a healthy intestinal flora.
Several weeks before school started I began giving them Kidophilus Plus in addition to their multivitamin to ready them for their fight against back to school germs. The great thing about Kidophilus Plus is they taste good so they take them without giving me a fight unlike vegetables!
