The immune system can need some extra help during the colder months to help fight
off winter infections. Up to 70 per cent of our immune cells are located in the gut, and supported by a strong microflora. Therefore, one strategy to support the body’s natural immunity in order to prevent initial infection and help reduce the need for antibiotics is to consider regular consumption of fermented foods or live bacteria supplements. Bio-Kult is a scientifi cally developed, advanced multi-strain formula containing 14 live bacterial cultures that are proven to survive the high acidity of the stomach.
