We are trekking our way quickly through the new year. It is amazing how every year feels like it moves just a bit quicker than the last. The kids are already back in school and I honestly just feel like I finally got all three of them healthy again. Over break – while trying to get everyone on the mend – I started looking for ways to keep the boys healthier for themselves and to also keep them from bringing home anything to expose Charli to. The obvious like washing hands when they get home after school but I also wanted to do something more to help support their immune systems.
If you saw on insta stories I always take probiotics. Mostly for my skin and hair but also for health benefits and I started thinking – why are my children not taking these too? I started doing some research and found Genestra HMF Fit For School. Literally, exactly what I had been looking for. They are chewable tablets that the boys actually like the taste of. They have probiotic strains, vitamin D and vitamin C that support the boys’ upper respiratory tract health and immune function. I love the added 25mcg of vitamin D since the kids do not get to play outside as often during the school year.
If you are wondering – do probiotics really help with immunity, I did a little extra research. Genestra HMF Fit For School did a clinical trial with 57 school children. Half of the children were given the Genestra HMF Fit For School probiotic formula with vitamin C and the other half were given a placebo tablet for 6 months. The children who took the probiotic showed significant improvement in upper respiratory tract health. In my opinion – it is absolutely worth giving the boys a daily probiotic to help support their immune systems. Plus – they love the blackcurrant taste!
Okay – and just a quick note about my probiotics! I am planning all of my travel for 2018. I love traveling because it gives me a chance to explore, meet new people and try new foods. That being said – I always feel terrible a day or two into the traveling and feel like it takes me several days to get regular again when I get home. Taking Genestra HMF Travel helps with many travel-related factors including unfamiliar food and water, stress and jet-lag. I like to combine Genestra HMF Travel with vitamin C to help maintain immune health. I am so excited to travel this year and still feel like myself! What are some of your favorite travel tips? Leave them in the comments below – I would LOVE to hear them!
