Here’s why and how you can support yours and your children’s immunity.
*A recent test by Melbec Microbiology found the levels of bacteria on a school uniform are astonishingly higher than some of the most contaminated surfaces we encounter on a daily basis. The test highlighted the extent of bacterial exposure children face within school settings and the significance of supporting their immune systems.

Your gut is an incredible thing that works tirelessly with the rest of your body, including your unique microbiome. In fact, approximately 70% of immune cells are located in the gut, so supporting it by following a healthy lifestyle and looking after your good gut bacteria is of great importance.
Here are our top tips for supporting gut health:
- Ensure your diets are rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. These foods are packed with nutrients that support a healthy gut microbiome.
- Consider incorporating fermented foods into your diets, particularly those that contain probiotics (beneficial bacteria that when ingested in adequate amounts confer a health benefit), such as bio-live yogurt, sourdough, and kimchi.
- Limit your intake of processed foods and sugary drinks. These things can disrupt the gut microbiome and potentially impact the immune system.
- Consider giving them a prebiotic supplement like Bimuno Immunity or Bimuno Kids Immunity, created for small, sensitive, stomachs (because a healthy gut means a happy child!)
