Combating the winter cold with probiotics

This post is sponsored by Caruso’s Natural Health

Winter is here (and I’m freezing) but as well as battling the cold, I’m not looking forward to battling all the winter germs as well. Last year I spend the whole winter with a terrible cough and this year I’ve already had Tully sick numerous times with various viruses. One in particular really knocked her flat and I’ve noticed that she’s taking a long time to really bounce back.

This is the first thing that’s really affected her long term, before this virus her immune system has been amazing (I like to attribute it to the 2+ years of breastfeeding. There has to be some benefit from all that surely!). So now I’m having to focus on rebuilding that immune system. I’m feeding her loads of fresh fruit and veggies and I’ve started her on kid’s probiotics to help the healthy bacteria build up so they can fight these germs.

I’m also taking one in the hope of keeping the three-month long cough at bay this year, especially since we are about to head overseas. We are both taking probiotics from Caruso’s Natural Health. I first discovered Caruso’s at the recent Kids Business Blogger’s Brunch and we are loving it! They are an Australian, family owned company and their complimentary medicines are available in 3000 pharmacies and health food stores across Australia. Tully is taking the Kids Probiotic Immune Booster. It’s a handy chewable tablet that she has one a day

The Kids Probiotic Immune Booster is lactose and dairy free and it contains five billion good bacteria in each tablet. It’s perfect for kids who need an immune boost, who have been on antibiotics or who have been experiencing tummy troubles.

I’m taking the Alive Probiotic to fight the bugs but also because I’ve been diagnosed recently with SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth), which means I have a whole lot of bad bacteria causing problems that I need to get rid of. It involves limiting a whole lot of food from my diet to kill off the bacteria overgrowth and boosting the good bacteria at the same time.

What I love about both these probiotics is that they are not kept in the fridge, unlike a lot of other brands. This makes things hard when you go away. We are heading to the US for three weeks and the fact that I don’t have to keep these probiotics in the fridge is a big bonus.

So, if you’re looking to boost your family’s health this winter visit
