Spring Forward with Natural Probiotics #NaturalProbiotic #shop

Coffee is not breakfast. I know this. And thinking about running is not the same as actually hitting the pavement. We all know this, too. But, like so many time-starved, too-busy parents, I’ve let a lot of my healthy habits slide down to the bottom of my to-do list this winter. It’s a slump, and I want out!

So, as we spring forward into Daylight Savings Time, I’m embracing the energy of the upcoming season and stepping away from the hot chocolate mug in favor of things like longer runs, longer sleeps, actually taking my prescriptions meds (oops) and getting back to a fresher diet that makes me want to dance through my garden with my babies. (Smoothies full of tiny fresh spinach leaves, please!)

And, because my family has a history of digestive problems, I’m making some changes to my diet that should help balance my system. In short, more probiotics. Good bacteria = a healthier, happier gut! The great thing about this new promise I’ve made to myself is that there are so many yummy ways to get those good “bugs” in your belly!

I think the most obvious way to get probiotics is to eat yogurt. Homemade yogurt is the easiest thing ever, and so delicious when piled high with odds and ends from around the kitchen. Mine is different almost every day, including things like you see above: almond butter, homemade jam, bananas, pumpkin seeds, Greek yogurt chips and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

The truth? Despite the benefits, I do tend to get yogurted out quickly. That’s why this will be my first year of fermenting! I’ve been reading a lot about making probiotic-rich homemade sauerkraut, and I’m determined to make it happen this year. If I have luck, I may even move on to kimchee. I’ll admit, the idea of live things in my food really did bug me out a bit at first, but now I’m just fascinated. I can’t wait until our fresh cabbage is up!

BUT, I know all too well that sometimes the yogurt doesn’t yogue, the cabbage harvest tanks, or the kids simply do not allow ANYthing but Play-Doh, and for those times, there’s Insync Probiotic (available at your friendly neighborhood CVS.)

Insync Probiotic contains B. infantis, which is doctor-recommended. Because probiotics are delicate living organisms that promote better digestive health, it’s important that they land in your digestive tract alive and well. Insync Probiotic uses GI Guard®, a gradual release system that ensures your friendly bacteria don’t get killed off by heat, moisture or even your own stomach acid. (Because who wants to bother taking them if they don’t arrive alive, right?)

  1. I have been thinking about taking probiotics for a while now & those seem like a good, easy solution. I like that they are relatively small, too!

  2. I have a sensitive stomach, so I’m really careful about probiotics. I like using them but I can’t do it on a regular basis, just now and then. This is a good way to get them in when away from home and out of a normal diet which may include them in a more natural form.

    • Good points, Liz. I think if I had a sensitive stomach, I might only take them after taking antibiotics. And I agree the pills would be great for travel!

  3. I Really Need To Start Taking These I Need All The Help I Can Get!

  4. That food is exactly everything I love! I have been researching some probiotics but haven’t get decided which ones to start incorporating into my supplement routine. I will add this one to the list to look into.

  5. I definitely want to try probiotics.

    That homemade yogurt looks REALLY yummy! But I think the pills would work best for me, especially on busy days.

  6. Thanks for all the information here. I’ve been thinking of trying probiotics, and you’ve convinced me, especially because those pills look small. Will have to look for them.

  9. We use probiotics here. Have for a long time. In really glad to be on them since I have a strong antibiotic now and want to keep the balance

  10. I like this post because I’m a big probiotics fan. I give it to all my family members. I definitely notice a big change. I don’t get stomach problems like I used to and my energy level has been so much better. I do think it’s helped with my weight as well too. So anything “natural” with how to get the right amount of probiotics is definitely good!

  11. I’ve been taking these, and it is awesome! No fun to talk about, but it makes your gut feel good :)

  20. Fantastic info. I have been looking into Probiotics. Thanks

  21. Natural probiotics in our foods is best, but when we cannot get them, it is good to be able to get the help we need in pill form.

  22. I’m a big believer in probiotics, especially during the cold and flu months… a clean guy makes for a healthier person. I haven’t made yogurt in a long time, now you’re making me want to haha. I haven’t seen these probiotics, I should keep my eyes open for them.
