We’ve all heard the expression, “go with your gut,” and this month’s pick exemplifies that well-known phrase. More and more research is pointing towards gut bacteria as the key players in digestive and immune system health. When the gut’s good bacteria is in balance, our immune systems can fight off harmful bacteria, and we can absorb nutrients better. These little guys are affected by age, stress, exercise, medication and DIET! Wondering how we take care of our 100 trillion microorganism friends living in our digestive tract? That’s where GoodBelly® Probiotic Juice Drinks come in! These delicious beverages contain live and active probiotic cultures. The exclusive probiotic in GoodBelly, called Lactobacillus plantarum 299v (LP299V®), is particularly good for improving digestive health in your gut, which is where 70% of our immune system lives! The key word here is “exclusive,” as GoodBelly is the only probiotic beverage in the country that contains this powerful strain. These dairy-free beverages are perfect for those of us who experience occasional digestive upset, and they come in handy during and after a course of antibiotics. They can even help keep you regular, which is always good news. GoodBelly Probiotic Juice Drinks come in seven fruity flavors, so you can enjoy the great taste, while the juice does the work for you!
