Kids and Germs Go Together Like…
Clinical Herbalist Reviewed on December 24, 2011 by Paulina Nelega, RH
One thing that’s consistent amongst most young children, is their innate instinct to ‘explore’ the world around them by putting ‘that world’ into their mouth. Once it’s in the hand, the next logical destination is the mouth – for better or for worse!
Along with that natural instinct for exploration, comes exposure to a lot of germs. Some of these pose no problem, and are an important part of building a child’s immunity. Other germs, however, most notably cold and flu viruses, are often ‘caught’ from shared toys or other items, and then easily spread amongst a group of children, or the family.
Kids’ Biotic Gold from Natural Wellbeing is a great-tasting, alcohol-free herbal formulation designed to strengthen your child’s immune system and boost their natural defenses.
It’s loaded with immune-supporting herbs including Echinacea, Goldenseal, Myrrh, Oregon Grape, Licorice and Wild Indigo. These can help your child to resist catching everything that’s going around, or, if they do happen to come down with something, help them to get over it, faster.
