If you’ve been with me for a while, you already know my gut health journey…I wrote a two-part blog post almost two years ago, detailing what I’ve been through, how far I’ve come, food trends I’ve experimented with, foods that I focus on, exercises that work for my body, and just about everything in between. You can read about that in part I and part II.
I really noticed an improvement in my overall well-being when I changed the way I was eating, transformed my mindset around food, managed my stress levels, and started to incorporate more supplements (think probiotics) into my diet.
I’ve been taking MegaFood®Energy* Shelf-Stable Probioticsfor the last month and I really love the positive effect it has had on my gut health, energy, and overall well-being. I have to say, before I continue, that if you’re pregnant like me, please consult with your doctor! I checked in with mine and she assured me that it was safe for pregnancy!
Before I dive in, MegaFood is an award-winning dietary supplement brand dedicated to changing the world and providing for a healthy, sustainable future by crafting premium vitamins and supplements made with real food from trusted farm partners who advocate for organic and regenerative farming, plus added nutrients. Not only do MegaFood Energy Shelf-Stable Probiotics contain essential healthy bacteria and other proprietary ingredients to support our gut health and energy in our bodies, it does NOT need to be refrigerated!! I find this to be super convenient to take with me on the go or when I am traveling. I don’t have to worry about keeping the probiotics cold and never miss out on a day of taking it since it is always with me.
Second, and most important, MegaFood products are certified glyphosate residue free. Why is this important? Glyphosate is the most widely used chemical herbicide in history and the nutritional quality of food crops might be reduced using the chemical! It’s important to understand where your foods are sourced, to better support your health and help protect your body from potential harm. It is refreshing that you do not have to worry about MegaFood products since they are all certified glyphosate residue free and made with real whole foods from trusted farm partners!
I believe that we can eat the “right” foods and try our best to steer clear of the ones that can trigger symptoms in our bodies, such as inflammation, but that isn’t always enough. Since I am constantly on the go and cautious of what goes into my body, I’ve had a hard time making sure I’m getting enough of the essential vitamins and nutrients to continue to support my gut health and keep my energy levels high! I will say that since incorporating probiotics into my diet, such as MegaFood Energy Shelf-Stable Probiotics, it’s been much more manageable. The uniquely curated probiotic strains help build the foundation to good health* with 10 Billion CFU of live bacteria and ElevATP® to support healthy energy in the body. By adding probiotics into my routine, my gut health, energy and overall mood have been given the added boost they needed.
If my gut is properly supported it always seems that the rest of my body is functioning at its best; meaning I’m getting enough sleep, eating well, and moving my body enough throughout the week. I find myself turning even more towards foods that are going to fuel my body or supplements that contain probiotics. MegaFood Energy Shelf-Stable Probiotics help replenish, promote, and rejuvenate your gut, which is why I love and trust this brand!
I am so pleased with making this probiotic a crucial part of my routine because it makes me feel great. My digestive system has the support it needs and my energy level is elevated.
I take one each morning with my breakfast and a large glass of water to start the day! It is the easiest time to remember it and it feels great starting off the day that way. In terms of my diet, I focus on foods such as Omega 3 fatty acids that rebuild healthy cells and fight inflammation. I also focus on high fiber foods such as vegetables, nuts, seeds, and do not shy away from healthy fats. During times of stress, I do my best to stay away from sugar as that feed bad bacteria in my gut.
Since making MegaFood Energy Shelf-Stable Probiotics part of my diet, I have found that it’s easier to stick to the routine that makes me feel healthiest. A happy and healthy gut can make a world of a difference.
