How To Improve Children's Gut Health?
Do kids need probiotics? Is it important for children to take probiotic supplements or eat probiotic foods for better gut health? Should kids drink kombucha? This is definitely one of the top 5 questions I receive when families come to sample or pick up a bottle of kombucha or kefir from us. And in 90% of the situations, my response is always a "yes".
It's important for me to throw a couple of caveats in there (every family is different in terms of what they choose to eat and how they provide for their children), but from an overall perspective, a strong healthy gut is vitally important to a child during it's growing years, and probiotics can assist in that.
I'm sure you are curious to know what are enzymes or what do probiotics do in our bodies? What is the best way to describe probiotics and digestive enzymes? Many people confuse them and believe that probiotics and enzymes are the same, but it's important to know the distinction and the roles they play to strengthen our immune system.
In this video blog episode, I use an illustration of a scissors and toothbrush bristles to better explain what probiotics and digestive enzymes help us, and if we need to even know what an enzyme is.
Note: Thanks for watching the video, and I hope you learned a bit about how the immune system is supported by probiotics and enzymes.

I believe we have a responsibility to provide the world with our gifts to help others find their own health emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
