Today is Day 5 of the GoodBelly challenge and so far, so good. Today I tried the cranberry watermelon flavor and loved it! It is a refreshing light drink that is perfect for the hot, summer months. Surprisingly, I actually prefer it over the mango flavor and I love the taste of mango.
I haven't noticed much of a difference in my body so I started doing a little research. I'm curious to learn more about probiotics and more specifically, GoodBelly so I started poking around on their website and here is what I have found:
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that help restore a healthy balance to intestinal microflora, some of which have been found to ease symptoms of diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, and other common digestive ailments, as well as supporting proper immune function. GoodBelly's probiotic, Lp299v, is shown to promote core digestive health and support the immune system when taken daily. Lp299v survives the passage through the stomach's acids where it can reach the rest of the digestive system and provide these benefits. Lp299v is one of the most well-researched and documented probiotics with more than 16 research trials supporting its efficacy.
Wow - sounds like a superfood to me. So, I'm going to continue on this 12-day challenge. I'll be back in a few days with another update!
