A few weeks ago I was thinking about trying some sort of digestive cleanse but I didn’t have money to waste. I was serious about changing my diet and lifestyle and I was told to start with cleaning my digestive system. I did my homework and the words “probiotic” and “digestive system” were linked together.
The past few weeks I’ve started each morning with a 8 oz of glass Goodbelly Probiotic Juice and walking. There are various probiotic juice brands like Lifeway Kefir which is a very popular and established brand within the health industry. Goodbelly is a newer brand and I chose it because it has a 12 day challenge, a Facebook support group and provides a coupon to cover 4 of 12 days. One quart is 4 servings or 4 days.
I knew how to eat healthy but my portions were way too large. For example, grapes are good for you…but if you eat a whole bag of grapes you will increase your daily amount of carbohydrates, fiber and calories. Which can contribute to weight gain. I used to crave sugar, dairy and carbohydrates. I had it bad!
Probiotic can be taken in pill form, juice, probiotic snack bars, yogurt, sauerkraut and other foods. Probiotics thrives on the bad bacteria in your gut. I made a few simple changes in my diet and now I’m on my way to repairing my leaky gut! It’s important to be proactive about what I put into my body. Bad bacteria thrive on sugar, processed foods like cereal, potatoes, bread, dairy etc. Which are all the things I enjoy the most!
Five Benefits of Probiotics
There are MANY more benefits, however, I decided to go with five. You can find it in the Juice/Dairy section of most local grocery stores!
My sugar & dairy addiction has subsided. It’s more mental…if I see it… I want it but I’m satisfied after a couple of bites and then I pitch the rest. I’ve also reduced my portions. Yesterday, I ate a pear and 1 oz of raw almonds for breakfast and I was satisfied. Most importantly I’m not sluggish and drained all the time which allows me to be more active.
Please take a look at the video below. It may be a little lengthy but it has some really good information about probiotic and your digestive system.
