Do you want to incorporate probiotics into your life but you’re not sure how to go about doing it?
Are you worried that you’ll forget to take your capsule daily?
Are you just one of those people who can’t swallow pills?
If you answered yes to any or all of the above questions, worry not… No problem. I got you!
Here are 2 easy ways I incorporate more probiotics into my life everyday, NO CAPSULE NECESSARY!
Disclaimer: For me, these habits don’t replace a probiotic supplement. I still take my @novaprobiotics VEGAN 100 or 165CFU daily & use these habits as a complement to my supplement, to boost gut health & to help me feel my best. These habits are definitely a good place to start if you’re new to probiotics to see how your body reacts & let’s be honest, 1-2 healthy habits is better than none at all!
KIMCHI LIVE SHOTS: I take 1 Wild Brine probiotic shot daily (about 3 tbsp.), usually around lunch. In just 1 shot, I get 1 billion CFU, fermented veggies & anti-inflammatory spices & a PROBIOTIC SHOT THAT ACTUALLY TASTES GOOD! Who knew, right? It’s a great mid-day energy boost, gently cleanses the system & prevents any afternoon bloat. My fave flavour is the spicy Korean! This shot is a great place to start if the apple cider vinegar is too acidic or you just can’t stomach it!
NIGHTLY APPLE CIDER VINEGAR + FERMENTED TURMERIC & GINGER SHOT: I take 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar & 2 tbsp. Botanica Health fermented turmeric & ginger every night before bed, followed by a huge glass of water to prevent the acidity from burning my esophagus. I swear, I immediately feel like it’s killing everything bad in my body! I’ve NEVER felt better since incorporating this habit into my life. I wake up energized, feeling cleansed & my digestion has never been more regular. Sorry for the TMI, guys!
You can purchase the fermented turmeric & ginger at most health food stores, or you can buy it on Amazon (use the link on the homepage of my blog to be redirected to my Amazon page, where you can shop all my favourite products!). As for the apple cider vinegar, I use the one by Bragg’s.
Apple cider contains tons of probiotics & kills bad bacteria, promotes healthy weight maintenance, prevents bloating, balances the body’s pH, lowers blood sugar levels & cholesterol, protects the heart, boosts gut health & cleanses + detoxifies the body. The fermented turmeric & ginger is completely raw, contains tons of probiotics, beneficial enzymes, B-vitamins, anti-inflammatory benefits & boosts gut health.

MAKE SURE TO DRINK IT WITH A STRAW (I like stainless steel ones to protect the environment) to protect tooth enamel.
