If you are one of those people who enjoy travelling and experiencing new cultures and their cuisine, it is important to be prepared and keep your stomach healthy. Different countries have different composition of bacteria in their food and water and although the people living there thrive on it you may react differently. New bacteria strains introduced through food or water can easily cause what’s known as traveller’s diarrhea.
At Better Living in Toronto (Etobicoke) we carry exactly what you need to keep you healthy and happy during your travels. Kyolic has bundled up their potent Immuni-Shield formula with their 9-strain probiotic Kyo-Dophilus. These two products will support your immune function as well as promote intestinal health and they are both conveniently shelf stable meaning no refrigerationis required.
Immuni-Shield is Kyolic® Aged Garlic Extract™ Formula 103 and contains the following immune-protective ingredients:
- Aged Garlic Extract
- Vitamin C
- 5-mushroom complex (maitake, poria, reishi, shiitake and agaricus)
- Olive Leaf
Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract is unique since it has no garlic odour, it is stable and water soluble. Kyolic starts as organic garlic but through the aging processthe active compounds change to have a wide range of immune boosting, heart health and antioxidant benefits.
A recent study showed an increase in two essential types of immune cells in participants after only 45 days of taking Kyolic garlic. One type of these immune cells directly attacked and destroyed the invading viruses, while the other produced antibodies that help recognise and fight off the viruses. After 90 days of taking Aged Garlic Extract the participants experienced 21% fewer cold and flu symptoms, recovered 61% quicker and took 58% fewer sick days.

- Lactobacillus acidophilus,L. rhamnosus, L. gasseri

Probiotics will help keep your microbiome more prepared to ward off the invaders from food and drinks and also boost you immune system so that you can fight off the unfriendly bacteria without experiencing uncomfortable symptoms.
