This is what Ethical Nutrients have to say about "Back to school & back to fighting off germs!"
There is often an increase in sickness at the beginning of the school year. Factors such as getting up early for school and dealing with the sudden stress of beginning a new school year, can adversely impact the immune systems of your children. The start of the school year also means your children will be in much closer contact with other children & and their germs. This is why it is important to boost your children's immune systems before they go back to school.
Preventing little ones' coughs and colds.
A great way to prevent colds and 'flus in your children this school year is to use Inner Health Immune Booster for Kids. Inner Health Immune Booster for Kids is a probiotic (i.e. good bacteria) supplement that contains an exclusive blend of Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM and Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07 that may be used for the prevention of upper respiratory tract infections and may reduce the duration and severity of colds and 'flus in children. Inner Health Immune Booster for Kids may assist in maintaining a normal, healthy immune system in children & especially if they are exposed to lots of colds and 'flus at childcare or school.

Diet and lifestyle tips.
As well as these supplements, consider the following recommendations too:
* Avoid sugar - the refined sugars found in chocolates, cakes and other types of junk food place unnecessary demands on the immune system.
* Eat immune boosting foods - in order to boost our immune system, it is important to reduce fatty, processed foods and eat lots of fruit and vegetables, high quality protein, wholegrains and foods containing essential fats (such as oily fish, nuts and seeds).
* Exercise - exercise promotes general wellness and health, and it is essential for maintaining the immune system. Make sure your child gets 30 minutes of exercise every day and limit the hours for watching TV.
* Sleep - children need adequate sleep to ensure optimal body and mind development. Ensure your kids get 8-10 hours sleep every night for optimal health.
Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist consult your healthcare professional.
