Balancing Beneficial and Non-Beneficial Bacteria with up4® Probiotics

October 22, 2018

I’ve always been a relatively healthy person, but after pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, weaning and then traveling for the majority of last year I knew I needed to switch up my diet and take better care of myself. After so much change in our lifestyle my body and gut were craving a healthy routine.

Before we returned to New York, I started with implementing yoga back into my schedule, worked on cutting back on caffeine, established a better sleep schedule and moved more toward an anti-inflammatory diet to help with all the issues I was experiencing. This diet meant limiting dairy, eggs, sugar, soy and gluten. Prior to this time I had always leaned on my morning yogurt to give me the probiotics I needed for the day, but after I stopped eating dairy, I was on the hunt for a vegan probiotic supplement that would seamlessly take its place in providing a source of probiotics. Meet up4® Probiotics.

For those of you who already take probiotics you probably don’t need much explaining on the importance and benefits of integrating them into your life, but I’m sure there are some of you who are in a similar situation to the one I was in last year so I’ll give you a little more information.

Probiotics help to keep your gut healthy by balancing your “beneficial” and “non-beneficial” bacteria and are known to help support healthy digestion.*. Watch this video to get a more in-depth idea on the benefits of taking probiotics.

There are countless probiotics out there which can make finding the right one for you and your family tricky, but up4® Probiotics makes it so simple and easy. They offer a variety of formulas that are non-GMO^^, vegan^^, gluten-free, soy-free and preservative free^^, plus they acknowledge that probiotics aren’t a one size fits all solution. They have developed a line that has a probiotic for you and everyone in your family and even offer recommendations if you are unsure on which probiotic is right for you.

I take their Adult Probiotics Gummies + Prebiotic each morning and keep them on my nightstand so I never forget. These mixed-berry flavored gummies include a combination of selectively chosen probiotic strains and vitamin C to support your daily digestive and immune health in addition to the prebiotic inulin.* They are delicious too which has made incorporating them into my routine flawless! Plus, I love that I can pick them up while I’m doing my household shopping at Target®.
