Keep­ing ju­nior healthy

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - BODY, MIND & SOUL -

SORE throat, com­mon cold, fever, vom­it­ing, di­ar­rhoea, ap­petite loss – when a child is ill, the par­ents feel the pain and dis­com­fort too.

Some­times it can be frus­trat­ing when your child is not per­form­ing aca­dem­i­cally due to sick­ness and feel­ing mis­er­able.

Re­search shows that our gut houses 70% to 80% of our im­mune cells. More­over, there is ev­i­dence that for chil­dren aged three to five years, daily pro­bi­otic ( com­bined with pre­bi­otic) sup­ple­men­ta­tion for six months is safe and ef­fec­tive in the fight against fever and cough.
