It’s a wonderful time of the year! Friends, family, all the holiday gatherings filled with laughter and joy. It’s also a little crazy – at least around here. Baking and gift-buying, and then wrapping those piles of presents.
Remember to take your probiotics and prebiotics during this hectic time. One of the first places we feel stress is in our guts. Even when you’re having fun during the holidays, just being so busy adds stress and on top of that, you’re probably eating a little more than you usually do. (Kudos out there to those who AREN’T eating more during the holidays. Add a comment and tell us how you resist all those sugar cookies, fudge and decadent desserts.)
All of these things combined together are bound to affect the balance of bacteria in your digestive system. Get this, in a study published in the Los Angeles Times in August (click HERE to read the article) ), an international research group found that mice who took drinks spiked with Lactobacillus rhamnosus (JB-1) were less anxious and stressed than the control group.
Most of you already know from your own experiences that when you get stressed, a stomach ache often follows. Doesn’t it make sense to keep that bacteria in balance as you face these crazy, fun holiday times?
Wishing you lots of joy and laughter to offset the busy-ness!
Go with your gut,
