Navigating the huge wall of supplements in a Pharmacy or Health Food store can be a little overwhelming. With so many probiotics on the market to choose from...
Now that the school holidays are finished and the kids are back at school, you may find yourself thinking, ‘Why do children at school and child care get sick so often and what can I do to prepare them for the year ahead?’ Studies have found that children placed in child care are far more susceptible to cold and flu than those predominantly in a home environment. This is due to the increased exposure to potentially infectious germs. With so many cute but grubby little hands and snotty noses running around, playing together and sharing toys, it becomes apparent that child care is a virtual minefield of germs.
Your immune system is scattered throughout your body and incorporates your bone marrow, spleen, tonsils and lymph nodes. Interestingly, these immune tissues only make up 30% of your immune system; the remaining 70% is actually located in your gut! The gut associated lymphoid tissue (or GALT) is your digestive tract’s immune system. It is made up of tissues that house and train your immune cells to understand what, when and how to fight against invaders. Babies are born with their GALT intact, however its protective actions are only triggered when beneficial bacteria colonise their gut. Beneficial bacteria stimulate the GALT into action to give you immune protection from the day you were born. It is important to keep the bacteria in your gut in a healthy balance - a healthy gut promotes an active, healthy immune system. Find out more.

Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is an inflammatory skin condition that results in red, painful, dry and itchy skin. In some cases, eczema can cause the skin to weep, bleed and crust over. It is often uncomfortable, and may have an impact on the individual’s quality of life.
While our bowel habits are not something many of us talk about (even to our nearest and dearest), it is important to realise that bowel disorders are very common, with most Australians affected at some time during their lives. Fortunately you may be able to manage diarrhoea* using probiotics or "good" bacteria for your digestive system.
Many people believe that eating a tub of yoghurt will give them all the good bacteria they need on a daily basis. However, a medical strength probiotic, such as Inner Health Plus is specifically designed to provide the right therapeutic strains and numbers of ‘good bacteria’ that you need to help keep your digestive health in balance.
Probiotics are friendly bacteria that we need for good health and vitality. Probiotics beneficially affect humans by improving the balance of flora in the digestive system. The word probiotic actually means "for life": pro + bios = "for life".
Inner Health Plus is one of the most convenient forms of medical strength probiotics (good bacteria). With 25 billion good bacteria in every capsule, Inner Health Plus provides your digestive system with enough good bacteria to keep it healthy.
Not all probiotics are the same, they differ according to genus, species and strain. Most probiotics are considered friendly in a broad sense, however not all probiotics possess enough benefits to be considered therapeutic. When considering which probiotic to use make sure the probiotic strain is scientifically studied to improve health. Different strains exert different health benefits, with varying strengths and limitations - so it is important to choose a product that is specific to your needs. To be effective probiotics must also be resistant to the harsh environment in the human gut; Inner Health Plus is able to survive through stomach acid, is bile resistant and is able to populate the intestinal area.
The best time to take Inner Health Plus is when you remember to! For many people it is easier to take Inner Health Plus with a meal. Fortunately the bacteria in the Inner Health Plus Range are resistant to stomach acid and bile so they can survive the harsh environment in your stomach when you eat.
Inner Health Plus is a therapeutic Natural Medicine that can be taken by everyone in the family – there is a product in the range to suit everyone! All children five years or older can take one Inner Health Plus capsule daily.
Inner Health Plus promotes the growth and adherence of beneficial intestinal bacteria. Did you know that there is about two to four kilograms of intestinal bacteria in our digestive systems? These bacteria are made up of good and bad bacteria.
