Ah November. A time when leaves start to change and temperatures begin to cool down. It means sweater weather, football games, and arguments over which part of the turkey is best. Unfortunately, it also means that cold and flu season is just around the corner and even the healthiest of us can find ourselves spending a week or more in bed. Luckily, there is a solid way to avoid that and it doesn’t involve drinking a gallon of orange juice. To really boost your immune system this year and avoid getting sick, you need to try probiotics in combination with IV therapy.
What are Probiotics?
If you've never heard of probiotics before, they are live bacteria and yeasts that are actually good for your health. Most of the time when we think of bacteria we think that it is bad for our health. Probiotics actually fight against those types of bad bacteria to keep us healthy. They occur naturally in the body but can also be found in many foods and supplements. They are especially helpful in improving both your digestive and immune systems but have a host of other benefits including: preventing and treating urinary tract infections, managing and preventing acne, recovery from antibiotics, treating kidney stones, preventing and treating gum disease, lowering cholesterol, and improving memory and learning in Alzheimers patients.
Which Foods Contain Probiotics?
Although there are many foods out there that contain probiotics, you can primarily find them in dairy products such as milk, cheeses, and especially yogurt. You can also find them in foods that are usually fermented such as kimchi, sour pickles, kombucha, sauerkraut, sourdough bread, miso, and certain dark chocolates. These food sources are not only healthy, but an excellent way to get probiotics into your system.
How Do Probiotics Aid the Digestive System?
Probiotics can aid the digestive system by creating "good" bacteria that can make digestion easier for some people. They help to break down carbohydrates and sugars and help with the body's absorption of important nutrients. They are also used to help treat diarrhea and constipation by helping your body get the vitamins and minerals it needs while expunging the parts of food that it doesn’t. Probiotics pretty much act like a bouncer for a club. They keep the wrong types of things out and the right types of things in.
How Do Probiotics Help the Immune System?
While probiotics can help with a lot of things in our body, they can be especially helpful to our immune system. Most of our immune system lies within our digestive system. The stomach, the intestines, and excretory system all are also a part of our immune system. Sometimes, when necessary, the intestines become inflamed to help fight against disease. When they become inflamed and it's not necessary, this can allow illnesses to enter the body. This is one of the main reasons you are taught to wash your hands before eating as a child. So you can minimize the amount of germs going through your digestive system. When you have probiotics, this helps create a protective layer in the digestive system that prevents germs from getting into your immune system. Thus by consuming probiotics, you are helping to aid your digestive system and thereby improving your immune system.
Are There any Side Effects to Taking Probiotics?
The only major side effects to probiotics are occasional gas and bloating. However, these side effects are completely normal, although maybe a little bit embarrassing. If you find yourself with too high levels of probiotics you can always try foods with antibiotics to even it out. These foods include garlic, honey, cabbage, among others.
What Do Probiotics Have to Do with IV Therapy?
While probiotics alone can help boost your immune system, when you combine them with vitamin IV therapy you can see a tremendous boost to your immune system. This is due to the influx of important vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that help your body protect against infection or illness.
IV therapy can give your body the right amount of nutrients to keep you healthy. It's not just Vitamin C that can keep you healthy but vitamins B12, D, B6, and many others that keep your body doing what it’s supposed to do. When you have both probiotics and vitamin IV therapy working in tandem, the two are keeping your body free from infection and keeping you on the right track towards your ideal health.
