Supporting your gut health is crucial in order to keep your immune system functioning properly.
Your gut is a highway with lots of pathogens and microbes passing through every single day. 70~80% of the immune system is located in the gut and works hard to protect your body from outside invaders.
If your digestive system has a healthy intestinal mucosal lining and great stomach acidity then it is able to neutralize and keep out a lot of harmful bacteria.
R's KOSO contains nutrients that support gut health such as probiotics, prebiotics, postbiotics, polyphenols, and acetic acid.

Vitamin A also has an important role in enhancing immune function. Half a cup of carrots contains more than half amount of your daily requirement of vitamin A.
Combining foods that support your gut health such as R's KOSO and vitamin A-rich foods like carrots helps support the immune system.
