Gut Health on the go with Renew Life Probiotics #RenewLifeCanada

Gut health is so important to overall health. As many of you know, I have had a lengthy history with digestive issues. It’s been a struggle, but I manage by avoiding triggers that cause problems, like certain foods. Plus, I also exercise regularly, hydrate a lot, and take probiotics frequently. Since I started taking probiotics, I have noticed some improvement in digestive issues. That’s because probiotics are the foundation of good gut health.


What is Gut Health

Your gut is a term that refers to your stomach and intestines. From your mouth straight through to the end waste product that exits your body – that’s all the digestive tract. In this case, health, is a term that refers to how well those parts of your body work. Gut health is an overall term encompassing all parts of your digestive tract and how well it works. My gut is either sluggish, or extremely overactive at times.

It’s so important to have a healthy gut because the gut is where we absorb most of the nutrition from our food. Think of our mouths and stomachs as processing plants. The large and small intestines are where the nutritional value of the food is absorbed into our body after processing. When our digestive tract isn’t working properly, it can’t do its job properly, which can affect our overall health dramatically. Many have linked gut health to brain fog and other neurological issues.


Why are Probiotics Important to Gut Health

Probiotics play a key role in the health of our GI tracts. These naturally occurring bacteria help our bodies further break down food and absorb the nutrients found within it, as well as fight off bad bacteria. Unfortunately, antibiotics and other aspects of modern life have left the majority of us with less beneficial gut bacteria than we should have. Probiotics help restore that beneficial bacteria. For a person with Crohn’s Disease, like myself, who is prone to stomach pain, nausea and diarrhea, and also tends to get more immune related illnesses than the average person, you can see why probiotics could be beneficial.


Including Probiotics in Your Life

For good gut health, you need a good probiotic, but those can be hard to find. Not just any probiotic will do. You need one of the highest quality, and you need one with enough probiotcs in the pill so that enough actually live through the stomach and get down to the intestines where they do their thing. It can be even harder to find probiotics that travel well. I know, because I’ve been using probiotics on and off for well over 20 years.

Back when I was in my 20s my Crohn’s was extremely acute and I saw many dietary experts. One added probiotics to my diet back then. But 20 years ago probiotics were fragile and had to be refrigerated 24/7. So that didn’t lend itself to any kind of travel.

Renew Life is a name long trusted in digestive health, offering everything from probiotics to fiber and cleanser products. Their probiotic supplements are well absorbed and have enough active beneficial bacteria to do what they need to. And now, they have a new product, which makes me happy – Ultimate Flora Probiotic Critical Care 50 Billion Go Pack.

Ultimate Flora Probiotic Critical Care 50 Billion Go Pack is a shelf-stable probiotic supplement designed for on the go people. Because it’s shelf stable, it requires no refrigeration, which makes it ideal for people like me who are always on the go. And with each serving of this supplement sporting 50 billion cultures, your gut will most definitely get what it needs to stay healthy.

    We regularly take probiotics supplements. Our tummies have never been happier since we started taking probiotics. There is a marked improvement in our overall health too.

  • Annemarie LeBlanc

    We take our probiotic supplements everyday. We have noticed that we are healthier and our immunity against common illnesses has improved. I would rather have lots and lots of good bacteria in me, than to allow the bad ones to flourish.

    I have been hearing the benefits of probitotics. I think at some point we all suffered from gut issues and glad this is on the market to help alleviate some issues.
