Spring Has Sprung! // 3 Ways Probiotics Can Improve Your Health This Spring

Probiotics may be microscopic in size but they pack a powerful punch. They can also help you look and feel your best this spring! Here's how....

Better Immune Function

Nothing is worse than being sick when it's finally starting to get nice outside. It just feels so wrong in every way. However, falling ill during the springtime is definitely not uncommon as the body and immune system responds to the shift in seasons. While loading up on anti-bacterial and anti-viral substances like ginger, garlic, oregano oil and turmeric can be helpful when you first feel symptoms coming on, probiotics act more as a preventative. A daily dose will ensure that your immune system, around 80% of which lies in your gut, will respond with vigor when the next bug starts inoculating everone around you. It wont stand a chance against your army of friendly flora. 


Probiotics do more than just help our bodies fend off viral and bacterial infection, they also help our immune system have a more balanced reaction to potential allergens. When our inner terrain is balanced, with proper amounts of beneficial probiotic microbes, our immune system isn't as likely to overact to potential allergens such as pollen with intense inflammatory reactions. This means probiotics can help eliminate common spring allergy-related symptoms such as itchy and puffy eyes, runny noses, sore throats, etc. If you're a parent, be sure to get your kids on probiotics early as this will help prevent common food and environmental allergies throughout their life. 

Smoother Digestion with Less Bloating

There is something so liberating about being able to go outside with shorts or a teeshirt on and feel comfortable. Spring marks that time when we start peeling off those layers, or maybe even plan a little sunny spring break getaway. Smooth and efficient digestion - with the help of probiotics - means less bloating, meaning you'll be feeling that much more confident in your own skin. 

Wouldn't it be nice if you could get all of the benefits of probiotics in an easy and convenient chewable form, free of all the gunk typically found in "health" supplements? We thought so too and that's exactly why we created our Sunbiotics Vanilla Chewables. Each chewable offers a whopping 18 billion CFU's of 4 lab-tested and highly effective probiotics strains, including 3 strains of bifidobacterium along with lactobacillus acidophilus. Our tablets are formed using pressure, never binders or glues. We use real, organic vanilla to flavor and organic coconut sugar to sweeten, creating a flavor reminiscent of lucky charm marshmallows. Yes, they're as good as they sound and kid-friendly too!
