I get A LOT of questions every day about how to stay well – I know you are doing your absolute best: running after your kids, working, running a home – I get it, it’s a lot! But there may be one small tweak you can make to your every day which will help you get through your days with just that little bit more juice in the tank.
You know that feeling when you have that spring in your step, that glow in skin and sparkle in your eyes? It’s like you just have it all going on! Your tummy is happy, your liver is loving you and your immunity just seems to be winging it! Well, a huge piece of this picture is probiotics. Probiotics literally mean “for-life” and these guys are really a massive key to wellness. You may be doing “everything right” like I was: eating clean, exercising, meditating, walking, but still not feeling 100% on top of everything. Maybe your immunity is just not 100% where you want it to be and you keep getting colds or other annoying viruses? Well, what if there was one little tweak you could do to bring a little more vitality to your life?
In fact, I’m so happy for you to incorporate these probiotics into your life, that I’ve bundled together my most special deal, to make getting your daily probiotic intake EASY and AFFORDABLE.
CHECKOUT THE BUNDLE
For now, let’s take a deeper dive into probiotics: what they are, and how they help us stay well. Probiotics are the good bacteria that live in and on our bodies. In fact, we are actually more bacteria than human, as bacteria outweigh our human cells by 10:1! Isn’t that amazing? And, the good and bad bacteria that live in our gut weigh around 2-3kg – that is some serious bacteria action going on! So, it’s not a case of getting rid of the bad bacteria, it’s more about keeping up a healthy and active supply of living good bacteria (probiotics) to keep the bad guys in check.
5 WAYS PROBIOTICS KEEP US WELL
Around 80% of your immunity is made and housed in your gut – that is a seriously big chunk right? The official term is the Gastrointestinal Lymphatic Tissue (GALT) and researchers are still uncovering exactly how this huge and intricate system responds to different triggers.
This immune system is an extremely complex system of billions of cells that Simply put, to get your immunity humming, you have to first pay attention to your gut because that is where it is located. Taking living probiotics is an incredible first step to help nourish your immune system.
You may be eating all the best immune boosting foods like garlic, broth, echinacea, onions etc. but if your digestion is weak or slow, you won’t be absorbing the nutrients from these foods, so they won’t be doing their best work for you.
Probiotics can help send food through your gut and boost your digestion because they can affect the nerves that control gut movements.
You know when the guy on the train coughs all over you and there is literally nowhere for you to go to step away from him and now you have all his germs all over you? Well, these germs will go into your system – that is what they are designed to do.
When you take living probiotics, you boost the number of good bacteria in your gut so that they can outweigh the bad bacteria (ie the germs!) and help keep you well.
In years gone by, I made the mistake of not nourishing my gut after taking lots of antibiotics , and I’m still trying to rebalance my gut after that time. If you’ve had a course of antibiotics your gut is more than likely damaged which could make you more susceptible to future infections. That’s why it’s critical to feeding your gut with living probiotics after antibiotics.
CHEAPER THAN BUYING SUPPLEMENTS
The price of some probiotic supplements can be quite high and for good reason. But you can supplement your probiotic intake with food based and living probiotics that you’ve made in your kitchen – this is my favourite way of taking probiotics.
These drinks you make will literally cost a few cents to make and will seriously keep in giving.
