The more we learn about gut health, the more we realize diversifying the bacteria in our gut is important for… well, everything. Aside from boosting our immune system, curbing food cravings, and making digestion a, ah, smoother process, good gut health can literally make you happier. Oh, and it can also improve stamina, lower stress, help you expend energy better, and improve memory. Sounds like a pretty freakin' good reason to take care of our guts to us.
But how do you actually do it? Adding high-fiber and fermented foods (hello, kimchi) to your diet is one way, but taking a probiotic supplement (hello, way easier) may also help. Renew Life's Ultimate Flora Extra Care Probiotic 30 Billion is a great place to start. It’s packed with 30 billion live cultures per capsule and 10 probiotic strains.
The Ultimate Flora Women’s Care Probiotic 25 Billion is also a good choice for women—it’s got all the benefits of the traditional formula but targets women’s unique needs (think vaginal health). As a bonus, both formulas (and, actually, all of Renew Life's products) are dairy- and gluten-free.
