Who else is finding their new year good intentions are already proving hard to stick to? I know I am! In addition to my yoga goal for the month, there’s also my general nutrition ‘goals’ (targets? requirements? things I’d like to achieve? Whatever you’d like to call them). Like getting enough vegetables each day, snacking sensibly (lactation cookies, anyone?), and remembering to take my probiotics.
Probiotics are shown to improve health by balancing your gut bacteria. Gut bacteria help you to digest foods, produce some vitamins, aid the absorption of nutrients, neutralise toxic digestive by-products, and discourage ‘bad’ bacteria. Your gut bacteria, or microbiota, are also now known to be linked to your mental health and immune health. So, pretty important. And after an indulgent month like December, it’s a great time to give your gut and microbiota a helping hand to get back on track. But which probiotics should you be taking?
Forgot your probiotics?
It’s not always easy to take probiotics: keeping them refrigerated, then remembering to find the capsules hidden in the fridge, or spooning out the right amount of powder. Seriously, a third of a teaspoon?! How much even IS that?
So, it definitely helps matters if your probiotics happen to be a delicious drink. Who doesn’t want to drink a delicious, thirst-quenching, fruity drink?
It just so happens I have come across a probiotic drink that even my hubby and threenager want to be involved in. And my husband never wants to be involved with food and drink that includes the term ‘healthy’, so that’s a real testament!
Gutsy have a range of probiotic sachets that make improving your gut health in 2018 super-easy & super-delicious. Proven by my husband, who drank my whole glass, when he was only meant to ‘taste’ it! I struggle to get him to drink more water, but elderberry & lime flavoured probiotics he will do!! #gutsylife
What Gutsy does.
Gutsy uses specific probiotic strains that act as ‘starter bugs’ which work to repopulate your gut with the good guys, helping to balance your gut microbiota, keep you regular, & improve your immune health. Especially useful if you have taken antibiotics in the past, ever had gastro, or struggle with bowel regularity!
Gutsy also contains a prebiotic, which essentially is food for the probiotic bacteria, to help them settle into their new home with a slap up meal! Plus, it uses natural fruit juices and a natural sweetener, to help give it that delicious taste. So, they’re even great for our smaller household members (kids aged three and over). That’s win-win in my book! And now you know which probiotics!
Different probiotic strains help with different conditions. But if you’re looking for an overall boost to your microbiota and well being, then Gutsy might just be the ticket! Check them out at https://www.gutsy.life/
Note: Gutsy were kind enough to send me a sample of their delicious probiotics to try. However, the opinions in this post are all my own.
