Prevent microbial infections naturally

Bacteria are single-celled microorganisms that can live and thrive in a variety of different environments, including your body. The majority of bacteria are harmless to humans and some strains are actually beneficial. “Good” bacteria found in your intestinal tract -- intestinal flora -- aid in digestion. Beneficial bacteria also help to boost your immunity by making the body less welcoming to disease-causing bacteria and infections.

The job of your immune system is to protect you from infectious bacteria. When your immune system becomes weakened or compromised, the number of harmful, disease-causing bacteria begin to rapidly multiply on or inside your body and interfere with the healthy bacteria. Many of these pathogenic bacteria give off toxins which can damage tissue, especially dry skin, can make you sick, and have a negative effect on your overall health. Examples of bacterial infections include strep throat, urinary tract infections, and gastritis.

While antibiotics are usually the first choice by physicians to fight bacterial infections once they get started, being proactive and practicing natural microbial infection prevention is a great way to protect yourself from getting sick in the first place. Vitamins and supplements such as probiotics help to strengthen your immune system’s ability to ward off infections.

Probiotics or “good bacteria” help to create an environment in your gut that helps to discourage the growth of unwanted microorganisms which can lead to gastrointestinal diseases. Global Health Trax, a GHT Company, has developed an entire line of digestive health products, including probiotics and digestive enzymes, as natural alternatives to supporting and maintaining a healthy digestive system and to improve your overall health and wellness.

Yes, you can still go outside

There are many things that you can do for yourself to strengthen your immune system to help prevent bacterial infections. Practicing better eating habits and improving your diet is one of the most important things that you can do to boost your immunity. A diet rich in fruits and colorful vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and the RDA of protein from meats, fish, and shellfish can go a long way to keeping you healthy.

Getting more exercise and improving your workout routine not only helps your ability to fight off infection, but it also lowers your risk for heart disease and improves your mood.

Adding supplements such as probiotics and vitamins such as C, E, and the B complex, are another great way to help optimize the disease-fighting capabilities of your immune system.
