Whether inside our body or outside, the cold & flu alike survive better in a colder rather than hot environment. So during winter, more microbes are around for us to catch, while cocooning inside also increases the chances of cross contamination with other people. Once inside our body, not keeping warm enough can also cause them to replicate faster. So remember to dress warmly next time you go out in the cold!
What can I do to protect myself?
Most bacteria and viruses we come in contact with go through our digestive system in order to enter our body. To protect us, our body has its own set of little soldiers protecting the front line: good bacteria in our gut. These good bacteria produce an antibacterial peptide that destroy harmful gut bacteria.
Unfortunately, daily life factors like a stressful lifestyle, high sugar intake, taking antibiotics, smoking, alcohol, etc., destroy the little soldiers in our gut. That’s the reason why probiotics are so crucial: to replenish our first line of defense against foreign invaders.
