Bacteria is bad, right? As parents and healthy living advocates, it’s easy to become afraid of bacteria. But, there is such a thing as “good” bacteria—and we all need it.
Probiotics (known as the healthy bacteria) help balance the “bad” bacteria found in your gut and support overall gut and immune health. Although it can be tough to balance our gut flora—you can’t always make the “perfect” dietary choices or control the environment around you—it is easy to send in the “good” guys to help keep you well.
Choosing the right probiotic for you and your family can feel overwhelming—we get it, we’ve been there.
If you’re like us, you are probably asking yourself: Will I really remember to take this every day? Is there any way I can convince my kid to take this? How do I know I’m getting a quality product? Will it even work?
All valid questions and ones we asked ourselves when trying to decide what kind of probiotic is best for us—and others like us. Because creating an excellent probiotic is tricky.
Since they’re living (yes, they are alive!), probiotic cultures are extremely fragile, which is why we worked with specialists to find solutions to these everyday concerns. And, our awesome teamwork led us to Gutsy.
This innovative digestive health probiotic powder sends 3 billion live cultures of 2 well-researched strains right to your gut to “help crowd out” non-beneficial bacteria and support the healthy bacteria.
We also added vitamin D to Gutsy because it’s a major ally for immune health and a critical nutrient for supporting strong bones as well as your entire body. Plus, research indicates that approximately 80% of your immune system resides in your gut—making a healthy balance of bacteria extremely beneficial.
We even taste-tested various flavors and delivery systems to make sure Gutsy truly tasted good—for real—and was easy to take. With the delicious Berry Burst flavor and convenient, portable probiotic stick, you can enjoy taking your probiotic anywhere: at home, at soccer practice, on vacation, in the car, at a restaurant…literally, anywhere. Plus, the yummy, sugar-free probiotic powder is great for anyone who hates swallowing supplement pills—and it’s kid-friendly, too!
And, because we are taking this ourselves and giving it to our families, our top priority when developing Gutsy was the safety and effectiveness of the product. Unlike many probiotics, Gutsy is designed so that the 3 billion CFU (colony forming units) will be alive through expiration—not just at the time of manufacture. That means you are REALLY getting what’s on the label when Gutsy arrives at your door—and your gut.
So, when deciding on the right probiotic for our busy, on-the-go lives, the choice was easy. We went Gutsy.
