If you’re a parent, you’re doing everything you can for your kids. You help them with their homework. You practice tennis serves and soccer passes. You get them into bed at a reasonable hour. But what are you doing to take care of their immune systems?
Our gut is the key to our immunity. Within our gut are several million living cultures of bacteria that are created and fed by the food we eat. These bacteria and fungi make up the gut’s microbiome. Your gut microbiome has a direct impact on your immune cells. If your gut is healthy, you will have better immunity.

We’ve all been there: A few days into a course of antibiotics, your stomach starts to rebel and you reach for the yogurt to try to bring your digestive system back into balance. Occasionally the stomach trouble worsens, and in some cases can actually be a more serious ailment called C. diff.
