Look after your gut and it'll look after you: probiotics can help support a healthy body from the inside out
I was looking into probiotics for a long time before I discovered ProVen, as I can really suffer with bloating and tummy upsets because of my dairy intolerance and mild IBS; I was really curious as to whether they could help, and if they could also have a positive impact on my overall mood and wellbeing. About six weeks down the line I definitely feel like I have more energy and my concentration has improved slightly (especially considering it’s January and I’m usually hibernating) and my bloating has significantly reduced. Whereas I’d historically suffer with bloating for anywhere up to 24 hours after eating something that irritated my digestive system, since taking these supplements my recovery time is down to a couple of hours. Although it hasn’t removed my symptoms altogether and my gut isn’t at its strongest (after speaking with a nutritionist I was advised it can take up to a couple of months for the bacteria to settle and you to start seeing the full positive impact,) it’s provided a noticeable difference and encouragement enough to keep at it. What’s been the most interesting to me is that over the festive period my sisters, mum and husband all came down with a horrendous chest infection and were all bed-ridden with flu – but I was the only one it didn’t touch. Apart from a slightly sore throat for a day or two, I was absolutely fine; the only thing different I did was take ProVen Probiotics, which is more than just a coincidence when the lurgy was coming at me from all sides!
I’m a firm believer in science, and a firm believer in looking after your body from the inside out. I’m always adding in a shot of matcha or sprinkling some bee pollen on my cereal, and went through a real stage of having cupboards full of every superfood imaginable. Although it may not be as glamorous as a salt bath or expensive face treatment, eating well and supplementing your diet can have a much bigger impact overall. So far I’ve seen nothing but positive results from ProVen Probiotics and I’ll continue to take them for the foreseeable future (updating you accordingly!) At £13.95 for a month’s supply, it’s an easy and inexpensive way to look after your body from the inside.
