There is nothing more valuable in life than good health. Three years ago I learned about the world of probiotics (aka: helpful bacteria for the gut) and the importance of taking them alongside a number of other vitamins. I remember spending an evening researching all of the benefits of probiotics and couldn’t believe I had been missing out on such a vital part of overall health. I introduced probiotics to my daily vitamin regimen immediately. That winter was a rough one. Everyone I knew was getting sick, yet, I felt the best I’ve ever had and never came down with anything – even a cold. It was amazing. Plus, I was traveling a lot. That winter my sister and I took a 7-day cruise while my family road tripped out to New York and Philadelphia in addition to a number of other shorter trips. After that winter, I am a believer in the classic “take your vitamins” mantra alongside all of the other heath precautions like whole food eating, exercising, washing hands regularly and not touching your face. Of course, while taking all of these precautions won’t guarantee you won’t get sick it can’t hurt and it’s best to start these healthy habits well before the start of sick season.
This year I’m excited because Culturelle, the most trusted brand in probiotics, has released Culturelle Advanced Immune Defense, the first and only product within the Immune Heath category that has a 3-in-1 for immune support formula with probiotics, antioxidants, and vitamins. Considering that over 70 percent of your immune system is in your digestive tract (isn’t that a fun fact?), a balanced digestive system can support your overall immune health. In addition to the added perk of Vitamin C and Zinc, Culturelle Advanced Immune Defense uses 100% of the #1 clinically studied strain Lactobacillus GG and has an innovative capsule-in-capsule technology ensuring freshness and potency.
In addition to daily vitamins, all it takes is a one-a-day capsule for immune support. You better believe I’ve been taking Culturelle Advanced Immune Defense, as I am on a mission keep my immune system boosted as I prepare to travel. I figure it’s not too early to start considering the fact that I have a lot of travel ahead of me, I’m spending time at the gym, and I will be exposed to whatever germs my kids pick up along the way. I hear the back-to-school fall bugs are already getting passed around, I’m relieved to have Culturelle Advanced Immune Defense on my side.
