Today I want to introduce you to something that we’ve been using for the past few weeks: Lifestix E.N.T. Care. It’s a probiotic, and it’s something completely different than what we’ve ever tried in the past, and we love it!
This post is sponsored by Lifestix, however, all opinions are mine alone.
Just recently Madison came home from school complaining that almost all the kids in her class were sick, and even the teachers were getting sick because “the kids don’t cover their coughs”. They’re supposed to sneeze and cough into their elbow, but according to Madison, they weren’t doing that. Normally when there’s a classroom of sick kiddos, I would always assume that very soon my own kids would come home with some dreaded illness as well, but since we have all been taking Lifestix E.N.T Care probiotics, there has been no sign of sickness in our home. Our immune systems have been working overtime to keep us well. Hip-hip-hooray!
Lifestix E.N.T. Care is a recently launched oral probiotic that is absolutely amazing for ages 2 to infinity. While most probiotics focus on the gut, Lifestix E.N.T. Care focuses on guarding the immune system’s gateway: the oral cavity. It is also one of the easiest to take and is just delicious, according to Madison, and when Madison says something is delicious, you’ve got to believe her since she’s one of my pickiest eaters. I would usually have to bribe her to ingest anything, but she asks for this daily.
Lifestix E.N.T Care comes in strawberry flavored packets that you simply open and pour into your mouth (just look at those tiny strawberry flavored granules making its way into Madison’s mouth) and the beneficial bacteria will populate your ear, nose and throat and provide the best protection from bad bugs trying to get you down. They never need to be refrigerated and can be taken at any time and anywhere. They’re portable and you can keep a few in your handbag or even in your car. I’m telling you, we’re obsessed with these things!
So how can you keep your family healthy all year long? Here are 5 easy ways.
1. Drink lots of water
I’ve said it numerous times before, and I’m going to say it again. DRINK LOTS OF WATER! You should really be drinking at least eight glasses a day. Drinking water not only keeps your body hydrated, it also aids with clear skin and digestion issues. If you’ve been suffering with skin problems, drinking water can help to flush toxins out of your body.
2. Exercise Regularly
Madison has been my inspiration all year long. No matter what the weather is like, be it sun, rain or snow, Madison insists on going outside to “play’, which is her own form of exercise. Exercising doesn’t have to be elaborate or hours spent in the gym, it can be as simple as taking a brisk walk around the neighborhood.
3. Eat more fruits and veggies
This year we made an active pact to start eating healthier. One of the ways we’ve decided to go healthier was by eating more fruits and veggies. Lately there have been talks that meat is no longer as essential as we thought it was. You can get your vitamins, fiber, minerals and even antioxidants from eating a variety of fruits and veggies, and you should aim to eat at least 2 servings of both each day.
4. Get a good night sleep
Sleep is usually the thing that eludes us most. As we get older we tend to sleep less. We get caught up with binging our favorite TV shows and social network that we sleep less and less, but we do need sleep for our wellbeing and to keep us healthy. While adults need at least 7hrs of sleep, children should get significantly more. Our body needs rest to recharge, repair tissue and generally rejuvenate our brains.
5. Take a probiotic daily
Probiotics are essential to your health and our immune system. Did you know that our gut is the largest immune organ in your body? That means that the majority of our immune system can be found in our gut. That’s why it makes a lot of sense to keep our digestive system as healthy as possible since it’s essential to our overall health and wellbeing. Taking a daily probiotic is one of the easiest ways to support your immune system, and including Lifestix E.N.T Care to your daily routine will give your family a healthy head start this year and beyond.
