Unlocking the power of microbiome wellness for the whole family

What better time to focus on gut health than back to school time, when installing good habits can help your kids thrive.

By now we’ve all heard the buzz about the microbiome, that bustling community of trillions of bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms that live in our gut, acting like the command centre for our health.

Study after study, including this one[1], have found that, when in a balanced state, these tiny tenants play a crucial role in supporting digestion, nutrient absorption and immune system regulation.

A healthy gut can set kids up for the year

We know that kids follow the healthy habits modelled by their parents.

Looking after your child’s immune system health can help your child keep doing what they love – whether it’s at school, sport or childcare.

With 70 per cent of immune cells living in the gut[2], keeping microbiomes healthy and balanced is important so your kids can ace the challenges that come their way.

The best ways to support a healthy gut microbiome

Research[3] has shown a diet high in processed foods, sugars and low in fibre can negatively impact gut health.

Whereas whole grains, fruits, vegetables and probiotic-rich foods like yoghurt and fermented vegetables promote a healthy and diverse microbiome.

Multi-strain probiotics like those offered by Life-Space can also support a resilient gut microbiome for the whole family, with special emphasis on babies and kids.
