Inner Health Plus is committed to promoting happier and healthier families, through diet, lifestyle and supplementation.
In everyone’s digestive system there is a balance of good and bad bacteria. Fatty foods, alcohol and some medications can throw out this balance, which is where a probiotic such as Inner Health Plus may be beneficial. Have you heard the saying ‘good health starts from within’? Well 70% of the immune system is located in the gut.
The Inner Health range is suitable for the whole family; even infants as young as three months can take Inner Health for Kids.
Stop by at the Bloggers BBQ to find out more about the benefits of probiotics on everyday health for everybody.
Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist consult your healthcare professional.

Our purpose is to create a better life for every child living with cancer in Australia.
Our role in the community is to meet the direct needs of children with cancer and their families throughout the cancer journey. This starts with diagnosis, through treatment, into maintenance and hopefully remission. Unfortunately for 3 in 10 Australian families who have a child with cancer there follows the move to relapse, palliative care and bereavement.
Delivered in primary schools, paediatric oncology wards, recreational facilities and homes throughout Australia, our programs ensure that in a time of great upheaval, our families are connected to a community of people who understand what they are going through.
