“Your intestinal tract houses 70-80% of your immune system, so you need to have a healthy intestinal tract in order to have a strong immune system,” says Brinti Vincent, a registered and licensed dietitian and nutritionist at Nutritional Weight and Wellness. She recommends taking Bifido Balance every day because it’s “the most prevalent good bacteria in your intestinal tract.” You can take 1-2 capsules about 20 minutes before each meal.

For extra immune-boosting power, try adding Wellness Formula or Wellness Herbal Resistance Liquid to your daily regimen, especially as the cold and flu season approaches. If you prefer liquid over capsules, Wellness Herbal Resistance Liquid is a great option in place of Wellness Formula, with similar ingredients and immune-boosting benefits. You can mix the liquid form into your favorite drink, or it’s easy to swallow a ½ -teaspoon full.

Both Wellness Formula and Wellness Herbal Resistance Liquid are natural solutions designed to support your immune system with its combination of immune-boosting herbs and key nutrients. Melanie Beasley, a registered and licensed dietitian and nutritionist at Nutritional Weight and Wellness recommends these supplements because “their ingredients have a long history of improving immunity.”

The antibacterial herbs like olive leaf extract, garlic clove, ginger root extract, bioflavonoids, and elderberry extract help support your immune system in fighting off any sort of bug.

Many of us at Nutritional Weight & Wellness take Wellness Formula (six capsules a day, two per meal) or Wellness Herbal Resistance Liquid (½ teaspoon, three times a day) when we start experiencing signs of a sickness. For extra protection, you can also take these supplements on an ongoing basis during flu and cold season (two capsules a day for Wellness Formula, and ½ teaspoon a day for Wellness Herbal Resistance Liquid).

What is the difference between Bifido Balance and Biotic 7?

Thank you

NutriKey Bifido Balance Bifido balance is a single strain Bifidobacterium lactis, that helps balance and support intestinal function. Bifidobacteria are the dominant type of probiotics in our intestinal tract. Biotic 7 is a seven-strain probiotic, containing six of the most researched strains of bacteria (20 billion CFUs total), plus 2 billion CFUs of saccharomyces boulardii. Saccharomyces boulardii is a non-pathogenic yeast that cleans out other pathogens (bad microbes) in the gut so the good strains of bacteria can then colonize the intestinal tract instead. If you would like more one-on-one help and guidance on the best supplements for your health goals one of our nutritionists would be happy to guide you in a nutrition counseling appointment.
