Germs.  When you’re a parent, they are literally everywhere.  In our home, we are lucky if we can go a full month without one of the kids bringing home some sort of illness.  So where do we turn? How do we stay healthy?   Well, we finally jumped on the probiotics bandwagon and you won’t believe the results.

After getting sick a few times myself, my doctor told me to start taking probiotics.  I had heard about them, but really didn’t know what they were for.  I was hesitant, but when your doctor tells you to do something, you do it.  I started taking probiotics in early 2017.  My husband and girls were still getting sick and I wasn’t.  It was crazy.   It was like a magic bubble that no germ could get through. While I still didn’t understand it, I was on a mission to find a probiotic that my kids could take because I was a believer.

We tried two different kinds.  The first, my kids didn’t like the taste of and another that was not recommended for children under 6, leaving my youngest without probiotics.  At one point, I was buying three different brands. One for my husband and I, one for our older girls and one for my little one.  It was not only inconvenient, but so expensive!

Meet E.N.T. Care

Introducing Lifestix E.N.T. Care—a recently launched oral probiotic that is starting the year with a bang. This new probiotic will give your family a healthy head start this year. Most probiotics focus on the gut, but Lifestix E.N.T. Care focuses on guarding the immune system’s gateway: the oral cavity. Pour this delicious tasting probiotic in your mouth and the beneficial bacteria will populate your ear, nose and throat and provide the best protection from bad bugs trying to get you down.

ENT health in children is so important and the most common reason for visits to the pediatrician.  Supplementation with the advanced oral-cavity probiotic, BLIS K12, can provide the beneficial support to help children and adults maintain optimal immune health.

BLIS K12 is clinically proven to:

  • Boost our natural immune system defenses
  • Colonize and persist in the mouth
  • Reduce the incidence of recurrent ear and throat complains (in both adults and children)
  • Help provide long-term breath support

Our Experience

As you probably know, with the new year came a new healthy lifestyle. We are eating better, exercising more and trying to find ways to stay healthy, as a family.

As soon as I read about E.N.T. Care, I knew it would be different.  My kids love the sweet strawberry taste and ask for it every morning.  If only everything that was good for you taste good, right?! And because it’s a safe for ages 2 and over, it’s something that our whole family can take.  Knowing that I won’t have to buy three different brands is healthy for my wallet as well.

It’s been 2 weeks since the girls started taking E.N.T. Care immune probiotic.  So far, so good.  Knowing that they are boosting their immune systems up eating what they think tastes like candy, is a win win for me.

My little one came home not feeling so well a few days ago and our older two haven’t caught it, which is so rare.  Usually, we are all sick within days.  I also noticed that while my youngest was sick, it only lasted for a day and a half when it normally lasts for 3-4 days.  I have high hopes for Lifestix E.N.T. Care and look forward to taking them as soon as my pack runs out.  Working with E.N.T. Care couldn’t have come at a better time.

  1. I remember taking probiotics but the huge tablet ones and didn’t get sick in the usual flu seasons but I did not care for the large tablets and stopped. I need to check these out

  2. My family has been taking probiotic supplements for a while now and I can positively say that it has boosted our immunity to common illnesses. It has also helped maintain a healthy GI tract, so we absorb nutrients from our food better!

  3. I had no idea that there was a correlation between taking probiotics and not getting sick! I’m definitely going to be picking some up now since there’s nothing worse than not feeling well!

  4. Good idea! Have you considered using Greek yogurt mixed with fresh fruit and honey? Lots of probiotics and active cultures in it.

  5. I think I’m going to have to start taking probiotics. I’ve been really sick lately and I bet they’d help keep me healthier longer.

  6. Love the fact that it has a sweet, strawberry taste. This is something we can get behind – especially for picky eaters!

  7. My kids are always getting sick from people at their schools or not dressing for the weather. We are going to try these ideas out because we can’t keep getting sick!

  8. I have not seen these before! I am always trying to stay on top of my kids getting sick, preventing it before they get sick is the best option. I will have to check these out!

  9. I haven’t heard of this particular brand before, but I like the way it’s taken. I have wanted to start buying probiotics for our family, but wasn’t sure which brand to start with.

  10. This is such a great way to help protect the kids against the diseases and viruses these days. I think it’s nice that it’s something that they won’t have a hard time drinking/taking.

  11. I take a daily probiotic and it helps with some tummy issues I was having earlier this year. I haven’t thought of probiotics for my kiddos though even though they get some via the yogurt or yogurt smoothies. I wonder if these packets could be mixed in with yogurt or smoothies?

  12. With this flu outbreak it is great to get all the important info out there. I am so glad I am over the flu now.

  13. I’ve actually been wanting to take Probiotics. I always hear about the benefits, so I might have to start. I’ll have to try these out!

  14. I jumped on the Probiotics bandwagon a few months ago and haven’t looked back. I’m so glad to hear that the kids can up their probiotics with Lifestix. I’ll have to share this with my daughter.

  15. As a child I was always have ears, nose and throat problems. Didn’t change as an adult. Use the best medicine available and take care of everyone.

  16. This is something I am definitely concerned when it comes to my kiddo. I want to make sure they stay healthy during this flu season. Anything I can help I am all for it.
