I enjoy working out. It makes me feel good on the inside and look good from the inside out. Although I put in the work to make my body look & feel good, there are levels to optimal health.
Recently, I was given a product to try that works on “my gut” health. Yes, good health starts in the gut.
Good gut health is essential to proper digestion, vitamin and nutrient absorption, and a strong immune system. The body’s microbiome is made up of over 1 trillion cells. These “good bacteria” are a part of our overall defense against illness. The foods we eat and drink and our lifestyle can interrupt this inner harmony. Source
The older I get, the more I wish that this information was given to me at a young age. Now, I try to make sure my children definitely know what is good for them before they eat or drink it.
Have You Heard of PROBIOTICS?
Honestly, the first time I have ever heard of probiotics was during an episode of the Tia & Tamera reality show. Tia is really into eating right and she was in the kitchen explaining to a friend about why she takes probiotics for good health. I was intrigued.
The word “probiotic” literally means “for life”.
After doing more research, I learned that our bodies largest immune system is our gut. When your gut is in good health, it will absorb vitamins better. The right probiotics will go to work directly in your intestines to help digest your food and purge wastes from the body. Source
Unfortunately, we (as a nation) eat food that is over processed or unnaturally processed. Our food is covered in pesticides or drowned in high fructose corn syrup. Then you wonder why even when you try to do right, you can’t.
Family Flora offers 7 probiotics & prebiotics that support good gut health. I tried the Daily Balance for almost 30 days. It comes in a powder form that I added to my water in the morning. For the most part, it was tasteless. Although, I usually add lime & mint to my water.
*Note: Add the supplement to anything cold; water, juice, yogurt, salad, etc.. If you add it to hot things, it will kill off the active prebiotic and you will get no benefits.
Why powder? Tablets & pills can be hard to swallow & are also made with an ingredient to house the nutrients you need that actually may upset your stomach. The probiotic cultures in the stick packets are protection for the heat-sensitive cultures and organic fiber. Each stick also contains their perfect dose and allows for easy body saturation and absorption.
Over the next few weeks, I can stay I felt regular. Everyone will feel different, but you should be able to tell your digestion of food has gotten better.

Within the last two years, I started taking probiotics as a way of keeping my “gut” balanced. I would love the opportunity to win the Family Flora for 1 year.

I know probiotics are essential when taking antibiotics as the antibiotics kill off the good and bad gut bacteria. My family would benefit from taking probiotics during the winter season, as my little one has already had to use three rounds of antibiotics in the last couple months.
