Why You Need Probiotics This Holiday Season
Lots of festive eating and drinking is good fun around Christmas time, but less so for your gut. To ensure you keep your gut health on track, whatever your festive calendar looks like, it’s a good idea to make sure you start taking a daily probiotic, if you don’t already.
Ideally, look for a probiotic that contains lactobacillus and bifidobacterium, which have been demonstrated to bind to cells in the wall of your gut, helping to strengthen its barrier function and reduce inflammation and digestive discomfort. Workshop’s Probiotic + Prebiotic contains both these strains, as well as more of the world’s most researched and effective bacteria strains. It also contains 20 billion live bacteria in each serving.
Even better, Probiotic + Prebiotic also contains, as the name suggests, the prebiotic inulin, which serves as food for the probiotics, helping improve gut health and enable the good bacteria to colonise your gut. For optimum benefits, it’s best to take first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. This allows the bacteria to have a higher survival rate and for it to multiply effectively.
