Now that I’m a mom, I’m a lot more knowledgeable about health and wellness. I also know that healthy gut is imperative to our overall well-being. In fact, the last time I visited the doctor for a well-being check up, he recommended I begin taking daily probiotics.
3 Simple Ways To Think About Gut Health In The New Year
As we kick off another year, I’m committed to not only exercise more and eat healthier, but to make simple lifestyle changes for my gut health. I’ve been taking probiotics daily (keep reading to learn more about my favorites – Digestive Advantage) because I know that probiotics can assist with common digestive problems like occasional gas or bloating.
Here are three simple ways to think about your gut health in the new year.
1. Eat a fiber rich diet
Regularly eat a fiber rich diet. Think fruits and vegetables as well as fiber rich legumes like beans and edamame. Fermented foods are also high in probiotics and I regularly eat kimchi and soybean paste (miso) at home when cooking Korean food.
Other high-fiber foods include raspberries, artichokes, green peas, broccoli, chickpeas, lentils and whole grains.
2. Take daily probiotics the easy way
There are many different ways to get your daily dose of probiotics.
Since doctor’s orders, I tried several different probiotic brands to see which suits my body and lifestyle best. My current favorite is Digestive Advantage because it makes probiotic consumption easy and fast. Some brands have billions of probiotics, but many don’t survive in stomach acid. The survivability of Digestive Advantage probiotics is similar to 8 yogurts and 10 bowls of cereal and has a natural protein shell that survives stomach acid 100 times better than leading probiotics and yogurt.
In fact, two gummies survive better than 10+ bowls of the leading brand of cereal, based on probiotic survivability testing vs. leading cereal brands.
I don’t mind taking the pill form, but I must say the probiotic gummies are tasty!
3. Live a healthy lifestyle
My daily lifestyle is just as important as what I put inside my body. Therefore, I try to squeeze in regular exercise and enough sleep into my life no matter how busy I am. Other healthy habits include drinking enough water, staying active, reducing sugar intake and managing stress level.
If you’re looking for a probiotic brand you can trust, check out Digestive Advantage. It makes consuming probiotics easy, fast and hassle-free. Make probiotics work hard for you, not the other way around.
As a busy mom and wife, I finally understand that my health is my most valuable asset and gift to my family. I want to live a long and healthy life and be around for my kids as long as I can. I hope you join me in taking this simple, actionable step to a healthier gut in the new year by adding Digestive Advantage to your daily routine!

my doctor also recommended starting a probiotic right after i had my little babe because through breastfeeding it would benefit him too. I’ve been taking it for about a year now and do notice positive changes in my gut health. I didn’t consider the survivabiliy of the them though, good point! not all probiotics are equal.
Thanks so much for sharing! I learn something new everyday!! 🙂
That’s an awesome way to get your probiotics in. Way better if you can’t eat yogurt or have too much fiber (Crohn’s Disease).
