This week on the blog, the Jetson Gut Council got together to share what you need to know about Immunity, our probiotics for immune health. From strain benefits, to the overall importance of preventative measures – they’re getting you prepared for cold and flu season.
You’re probably sick and tired of hearing about how to not get sick (and tired) this year. Take it from us, the professionals who keep talking about it. But cold and flu season is well underway, and we want to make sure you’ve got the necessary tools to make it through unscathed. Luckily, it’s pretty simple: Immunity.
Probiotics are key for immune health
Maybe you know this already, or maybe we’ll be the first to tell you: 70% of your immune cells exist in your gut. That means if your gut isn’t healthy, a vast majority of your immune cells are working in a hostile environment – meaning they probably aren’t doing a great job at protecting you from harmful pathogens, viruses, inflammation, etc.
Probiotics play a significant role in improving immune function because they create a healthy, nurturing gut microbiome that allows your immune cells to fight off infection effectively. And because winter has been dubbed “cold and flu season,” maintaining strong immunity during this time of year is especially high stakes.
Which brings us to: Immunity.
The best probiotics for immune support
The strains in Immunity were specifically studied to strengthen your body’s immune response so that it can best fight off harmful pathogens that try to get in the way of you leaving the house (if you’ve got a cough this year, don’t bother stepping foot outside).
Because Jetson rotates formulations every three months (rotated, diverse probiotic strains are what your gut needs to be its healthiest), this Immunity formulation is a little bit different than last year’s. We always want our formulations to contain strains with the latest, most promising studies behind them. And this year in particular, we wanted strains that have been studied to improve respiratory health, because like we said: nobody wants a cough this year.
Here’s what you can expect from this Immunity formulation:
Although the strains in Immunity are specifically tailored to improve immune response, you’ll still notice probiotic benefits like improved digestion, sleep quality, energy and reduced bloating. Better yet, you can take Immunity simultaneously with other Jetson probiotics to target additional needs (like Fit for weight loss or Mood for mental health).
Remember that a probiotic routine is a valuable preventative measure that is crucial for maintaining consistent whole body health.
If you have any questions about Immunity, we’ll be standing by to answer all of your questions.
Until next time,
