Immunity – the Best Line of Defense Amid the Pandemic
A strong immune system protects you from coughing,
getting a cold or contracting seasonal viruses such as influenza.
The current pandemic makes it especially important for us to keep our immune system healthy.
The intestine is the largest immunity organ in the human body, with 70% of immunity cells found in the gut.
Both good and bad bacteria will have an impact on
our immunity system; good bacteria help promote intestinal health and regular bowel movements while bad bacteria produce toxic substances and release toxins,
inducing diseases as a result.
Consuming probiotics in the right way helps the body
to maintain a natural balance of bacteria and
promote good intestinal health.
How to Choose Quality Probiotics
The “strain” of a probiotic is a bit like its identity card number and represents different functions of probiotics. You can get to know more about the efficacy of a product if it indicates the strains contained.
Clinical research was conducted into the effect of Bifidobacterium lactis HN019 on immunity. The results were compiled through blood analysis and showed that:
‧The number of immunity cells increased, including T cells and “natural killer” cells
‧ It helped to strengthen immunity
The More Probiotics, the Better?
Probiotic works at its best when it contains a functional probiotic strain that promotes viability and cohesion. It is recommended to choose a quality probiotic strain that is supported by scientific research and whose efficacy has been proven by clinical studies of its ability to promote digestion and immunity. It is important to note that if a product contains more probiotics, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s more efficacious. In fact, consuming an excessive amount of probiotics will be a wasted effort that will not result in additional health benefits.
Who Needs Probiotics?
‧ Elder people with weaker digestion
‧ Children aged four and above with decreased immunity
‧ Office workers who lack exercise and worry about their intestinal health
