Healthy Immune Functions


Friendly bacteria present in the intestines improve immunity. Human gut is home to about 10 good bacteria, which help maintain healthy immune function[7,8] of our body. Good bacteria present in the human intestines provide protection against disease causing microorganisms 

  • By not allowing them to multiply and grow in number
  • By consuming their share of nutrition (nutrient competition)
  • By production of factors that fight these microorganisms

Unhealthy food choices can affect immunity adversely


  • Foods high in fat and sugar can adversely affect the number of good bacteria
    in the intestines[10].
  • Junk food can adversely alter the number of good bacteria in the intestines
    within 24 hours[11].

A balanced diet rich in micronutrients can provide a healthy environment for growth and proliferation of good bacteria in the intestines (gut flora)[8].

Horlicks Lite is rich in Vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and minerals such as Zinc, Selenium, Copper, which are nutrients known to help support healthy immune function.
