How Probiotics Helped My Boys Stay Healthy



     I have been taking probiotics for quite some time for good digestion.  I never seem to have any problems with my digestion and I know that my daily intake of probiotics has been the reason. Through my research I have discovered that probiotics can be beneficial for so much more than healthy digestion. I discovered that probiotics can be useful during cold season to keep one's body healthy. So I decided to give my younger boys probiotics every day to see if it can help them stay well during cold season. My boys have been taking a probiotics daily for about a month. I think the probiotics are helping him to stay well and fight colds faster.

The other night one of them complained that his throat hurt so I sent him to bed expecting to keep him home from school the next day. I know in the past when he gets sick, that means several days of coughing and a running nose. The next morning my son's throat felt better and he had a runny nose, but he felt well enough to go to school. The next day, my son's runny nose was gone and he never developed a cough. I was amazed as he never gets better that fast. Was it the probiotics he was taking? I can't be 100% sure that was the reason but research has shown that probiotics help replenish the good bacteria in our bodies which helps with our immunity. Daily probiotics don't harm the body so I will continue to give my boys a daily probiotic supplement.


   Taking probiotics everyday is easy. I just add 2 easy to swallow capsules to my daily smoothie when I make them. My sons eat breakfast a school so they take their probiotics with juice before they get on the school bus. The probiotic that my family takes is B4B Probiotics and is made by Basics4Balance. I like this probiotic as this company has test live cultures for over 50 years so they know which one s survive and thrive in people's bodies. Their formulation has 2.5 billion CFU per capsule of L. acidophilus and B. bifidum. The company says that adding other strains dilutes DDS-1 and reduces its proven effect. That is a lot of technical terms to me. The main reason I like this probiotic is that the ingredients are 100% natural. They are also vegan and contain no GMOS. For people with allergies, these probiotics contain no soy, no nuts, and no gluten. They are also made in the USA. I also love that they need no refrigeration.

  2. I like that these are natural and do not have any GMOS. I should try these for my kids, luckily, they haven't gotten any colds yet but it's finally starting to get cold here for us and some kids we know have started getting sick so I am worried they may start catching something soon.
