It’s a given: I eat a lot of things. Things that are bad – usually in the name food blogging. Some things are as a result of experimentation, both good and some terribly, terribly awful. And despite my efforts to eat a healthy and balanced, my stomach is left beat up and frankly, in really bad shape. It can come in the form of bloating, nausea, your roundabout stomach ache and a list of other ailments which I won’t list in detail. It affects my mood and energy but I found a solution: GoodBelly.
GoodBelly is a probiotic-rich drink that help balance out your stomach flora. I’ve been seeing the keyword probiotics a lot this year and prior to learning about GoodBelly, I had no idea what it was. It’s the good bacteria that promotes healthy digestion.
With all the eating from last month’s holiday parties, cookie binges and treats in the office, I could not have survived without it. Even with a bout of food poisoning (don’t ask), these good bacteria helped bring the pH levels in my gut back to normal.
GoodBelly is available in several forms in the refrigerated section. (I’ve purchased them at Sprouts and Whole Foods.) They’re available in juice cartons and single-serving drink containers in packs of 4 (my favorite). While the word probiotics doesn’t sound appealing, the flavors by GoodBelly are pretty good. I didn’t think drinking live organisms would be so tasty! When I’m expecting to do a lot of eating, I start up the GoodBelly a few days in advance and continue it a few days after. In November and December, I just drank it consistently to keep my digestive tract in check.
I also tried a few similar products and enjoyed GoodBelly’s taste the best — something that’s really important to me. I’m not a fan of mango in general but their mango flavor was my favorite. In addition, the product is organic and vegan-friendly.
