With demands running high and winter running long in most parts of the country, our immune systems are certainly at a disadvantage. I’ve had more friends get taken out by the flu, turned bronchitis turned pneumonia this year than ever before. While I eat a pretty healthy diet full of fresh fruits and veggies, I still felt like I needed an edge this year. Especially because of the demands I put on my body with my Flash Marathon training for the Jerusalem Marathon. All that said, I took my first stab at a probiotic supplement!
What is a probiotic?
Well, it’s kind of exactly what it sounds like, the opposite of antibiotics, right? Antibiotics work by destroying bacteria. While bacteria is traditionally pretty unpopular and commonly known for causing illness and disease, it’s not entirely fair to give all bacteria a bad wrap. Probiotics are considered “good” bacteria and they support healthy digestion and a strong immune system.
Why take a probiotic?
Doctors will recommend a probiotic to help with digestive problems, but it’s also not a bad idea to add one to your daily routine to strengthen your immune system. I’ve been taking the Culturelle® Health & Wellness Probiotic, and even with my rigorous training schedule, I’ve survived the winter thus far relatively unscathed. It’s just a simple supplement and you can take it anytime throughout the day with our without food. I keep a pack in my gym bag and one on the counter in the kitchen so I never forget.
What’s I like about the Culturelle® Health & Wellness Probiotic
Culturelle Health & Wellness Probiotic contains the #1 clinically studied probiotic, Lactobacillus GG that goes to work in your digestive tract, where 70% of your immune system is located. It helps to keep your immune system healthy by supporting a balance of good and bad bacteria necessary to support your body’s natural defenses.* Just one capsule daily provides a clinical strength dose of 100% Lactobacillus GG (that’s 15 Billion live active cultures in each capsule!)
