 *Disclaimer: I am a part of Mambo Sprouts blogger program. I was sent these probiotics and compensated by Mambo Sprouts in exchange for a review.  Opinions are 100% my own. 

Eek! We are definitely in the thick of cold and flu season. Our house has been hand off of illnesses from Thanksgiving until now. One of us will get sick and as soon as we start to feel healthy again, BOOM! Illness takes its next victim down. Will we ever be healthy again? Right now our daughter has walking pneumonia (sad face) and it looks like our son is the next one to fall with a croup like cough. Help!

Tips for Staying Healthy During the Winter

What is your families best defense during cold season towards trying to stay healthy?

Here are some things that we do in our household to try to keep us in the best health possible during cold and flu season:

  • Get enough rest. Getting enough sleep is an important defense against getting sick. Your immune system is much stronger when your body has had adequate rest. This can be hard to do when you are traveling (like Organic Runner Dad), or training for a marathon (like me training for the Boston Marathon) or like my kids who are busy at school  and then with extracurriculars like skiiing, cross country skiiing, swimming and Math Club. But sleep needs to be a priority!
  • A healthy diet! Dump the junk. Eating healthy and whole foods (organic whenever possible) will keep your body nourished and filled with energy to get you through the day.
  • Take a probiotic (like PB8 probiotic supplement for digestive health) to promote digestive health.
  • Move! Exercise can help keep your body healthy in a variety of ways that can promote overall wellness.

PB8 Probiotic Supports Digestive Health

PB8 Probiotic Supports Digestive Health

Gut health and digestive health are so important to overall health so taking a daily probiotic to support digestive healthy is one of the ways to help protect yourself from future illness. Also, along with sickness often come antibiotics. We all know the havoc that is brought on to digestion after going through a round of antibiotics. Not only do they help you to get well again but the antibiotics do a pretty good job of killing of the good bacteria that you need in your stomach  I have gotten used to taking daily vitamins and supplements to improve my overall health as I also need to take a B12 vitamin as I recently discovered that I was B12 deficient. Now I take PB8 Vegetarian probiotic capsules as well.

PB8 probiotic vegetarian capsule supplements contain no gluten, eggs, milk, peanuts, tree nuts or soy which is great for allergy sufferers! Upon manufacture these supplements contain 14 billion Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium bacteria which does vary as time goes on. The bacteria in the PB8 supplements work to help support your immune system during a time when the germs are bombarding us everywhere!

  1. I have heard (and strongly believe!) that being outside is actually better for staying healthy than being sheltered inside (in a warm place). Being outside gets all that fresh air into our bodies. I have been sick this past week, and have been inside a lot this month because of the ice,etc. I don’t think it’s a coincidence.
