Staying well has always been important but the pandemic heightened our awareness of the benefits to a strong immune system. Now is the time to boost your immunity as cold and flu season begins with COVID still lingering. An ever expanding number of studies have found that the balance or imbalance of bacteria in your gut are directly linked to overall health, weight loss, exercise recovery and disease. More than half of the cells that make antibodies used in combating sickness are found in your intestines and other organs in your gut. They work to protect against pathogens, toxins and stress. Immune systems are a network of many parts that contain proteins, cells, tissues and organs that are found throughout your body. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria which aid in your body’s ability to digest food, fight allergens such as gluten or dairy intolerances, fight the cells that cause diseases and boost your immune system. By ensuring that you have a strong, healthy gut with a proper balance of good bacteria and other organisms in your intestines you are able to reduce your chances of getting sick.
Even people with robust immune systems and follow a specialized diet (such as vegetarian, flexitarian or vegan) will sometimes have health issues. Often a doctor will offer antibiotics. While it is amazing that these medicines are frequently able to fix the issue they often wipe out the good bacteria and are associated with unpleasant side effects. One common side effect is diarrhea or constipation which happens as a result of the balance of good and bad bacteria in your gut being negatively affected. A Nova probiotic supplement not only help to prevent diarrhea but also to minimize the severity.
