Missed school days can have a dramatic impact on not only the child but the entire family. Adjusting to this all too common occurrence results in an extreme hassle for parents trying to balance work and family life. Furthermore, major health regulatory bodies like the FDA have recommended against the use of cold and flu medicine for the young since they only seem to mask symptoms while increasing some risks.
Do your best to fortify your children’s natural immune defense system as well as your own with HOWARU® Protect. Developed by Danisco scientists, this targeted probiotic formulation reinforces the body’s natural defenses and has been clinically demonstrated to reduce missed school days as well as the incidence and duration of cold and flu symptoms.
In a gold standard clinical study, healthy three- to five-year-old children received doses of HOWARU® Protect or a placebo throughout the primary cold and flu season from November to May. Cold and flu symptoms, including headache, sore throat, runny nose and fever, were evaluated.
|Among the children who received HOWARU® Protect, the study found that:|
|• Incidences of fever, cough and runny nose fell dramatically|
|• The number of sick days was reduced by almost half|
|• Antibiotic prescriptions were reduced by 80%|
