Probiotics: A Novel Way to Fight Colds & Flus

Our friends at The Natural Path have again extolled the virtues of supplementing with a great product. Our Ultimate Probiotic is 100% BB536 and is a great, shelf stable probiotic, so you can travel without worrying about needing to refrigerate. BB536 has now also been proven to help boost your immune system on top of it’s other virtues. Read on about a study that was conducted!

Many of the most famous vitamins, minerals and herbs–like echinacea, vitamin C and zinc lozenges–won their fame by knocking out the cold and flu. Well, here’s a new supplement that prevents colds and flus. . . .

Stress is known to weaken the immune system and increase the risk of catching a cold or coming down with the flu. So, researchers gave 581 students who were stressed due to exams either a placebo or various kinds of probiotics for six weeks.

Over the six weeks, the number of people who suffered one or more colds or flus was significantly lower amongst students who took the probiotic Bifidobacterium bifidum. They had a greater number of healthy days, and, when they did succumb to cold or flu, their symptoms were less severe.

Earlier research has also shown that probiotics help fight colds  (Adv Ther Respir Dis 2010;4:271–8).

So, in addition to all the other reasons for taking probiotics, they also may help you to stay healthy this winter.
