Probiotic supplements and probiotic-rich food and drink are essential when you’re facing the flu. We now know that two-thirds of our immune system lies in the gut, so we want to get in there and boost the good bacteria to literally boost our immune system. We, in fact, have way more species of bacteria (which we now accept as mostly health allies rather than enemies) in our bodies than cells, so we need to look after them via probiotics. These all help to boost the immune system and help to ease the uncomfortable symptoms of cold and flu at the same time.

What You'll Need

  • A good quality probiotic, such as Optibac Immunity - 1 a day - to get better fast and prevent another flu episode.
  • Some probiotic-rich foods like sauerkraut,
  • tempeh,
  • bio-live yoghurt,
  • kombucha,
  • and kefir.

What You'll Do

  • While you’re 'man-down' with the flu or a cold, if you’re not already taking them, start taking a good quality Probiotic, such as Optibac Immunity - 1 a day - to get better fast and prevent another flu episode.
  • Hit your cold or flu wth a double pronged attack of your probiotic-rich foods and drink which are brimming with live strains pf beneficial bacteria that should pretty swiftly get your immune system working at full speed again.
