Did you know that over 70% of your immune system is tied to your gut health? That\u2019s right! The millions of microorganisms living in your intestines at this very moment are responsible for protecting you against practically every disease known to man. Your gut microbiome is an indispensable part of your wellbeing. But when was the last time you paid attention to your gut health? Or that of your children? After all, a healthy gut is the secret to a healthy childhood. Your child\u2019s gut bacteria play a key role in their growth and development. They help regulate growth hormones, train immune responses and aid nutrient absorption. That\u2019s why it\u2019s crucial to protect and promote your child\u2019s gut health. Especially while they\u2019re still young. One simple and easy way to boost good gut health is through probiotic drinks! When taken regularly, probiotic drinks replenish existing gut bacteria. This helps your body fight off infections, improve digestion, as well as produce important hormones and enzymes that can improve your appetite, sleep, and energy. But that\u2019s just the tip of the iceberg. Probiotics can also help aid digestion, prevent bowel disorders, and even prevent colds and flu. One brand that has been a consistent and trusted source for gut health maintenance is\u00a0VITAGEN. Read on to learn more about how VITAGEN is the probiotic drink that every family needs.
