Adjusting to Our “New Normal”

Adjusting to Our “New Normal”

In this new normal that we are navigating, going back to school and work might look a little different this year and healthy routines are more important than ever. Good habits go a long way toward giving you and your kids a great head start. A healthy diet, adequate sleep, exercise and stress relieving activities are a great way to support your family’s health but even the best laid plans can go awry when children and adults are faced with going back to school and work.

The Best Defense is a Good Offence!

The bacteria that grow naturally in our intestinal tract aid in the nourishment and defense not only of the digestive system but of the entire body.[1] Renew Life’s comprehensive line of probiotic supplements for children and adults, continues to be Canada’s leading choice to empower people to elevate their quality of life through better digestive health.

Calm from Within

For a lot of people, one of the first signs of stress is gastrointestinal discomfort such as abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and loose stools.[2] Renew Life® Ultimate Flora® Probiotic Plus Mood & Stress is formulated to help reduce gastrointestinal discomfort in those experiencing mild to moderate stress resulting from life events, and helps moderate feelings of anxiety. It includes 6 unique probiotic strains which provide 30 billion active cultures in a convenient once a day dose.

Defend from Within

Maybe it’s your immune system that’s suffering. We all get run down from time to time and our immune systems get compromised by factors such as stress, poor diet and not enough sleep. What makes one person catch something and another person avoid it altogether? While lifestyle plays an important factor, it could also be based on the health of the gut. The human body contains trillions of tiny microscopic bacteria that are an essential part of our immune system. In fact, the gastrointestinal tract is home to the largest concentration and highest diversity of bacteria in the body. The GI tract contains the greatest amount of lymphoid tissue in the body, and it’s this lymphoid tissue that is responsible for synchronizing the defense strategies between the innate and adaptive immune systems.[4] Understanding this helps us to appreciate why good gut health is important for good immune health.

Defend from within with Renew Life® Ultimate Flora® Probiotic Plus Immune Support. It’s formulated to not only support good digestive health, but it contains the clinically studied probiotic strain Bifidobacterium bifidum R0071 which showed a reduction in the incidence of cold-like symptoms in stressed adults. It also includes 4 other beneficial strains to provide 30 billion active cultures in a convenient one a day dose. 70% of your immune system is in your gut; make sure yours is up for it!
