Say Yes to You

Over the past 2 years, I’ve been on a mission to be healthier, both mentally & physically. Ever since I took that solo trip to LA I’ve been paying more attention to my body and taking more time for myself. My next quest is to learn about gut health

Did you know that your overall well-being, including your weight and immunity, may be tied to your gastrointestinal health?

In the summer I went to a workshop hosted by  Koena, an over-the-counter probiotic supplement to promote gastrointestinal health. This was my first introduction to gut health and got me thinking about my family.  Last month I went to another workshop focussing on food sensitivity, leaky gut, and overall gut health. I’m learning but there’s so much to know. 

A key takeaway is you really are what you eat and your gut is connected to your brain which is connected to everything else. 

What are Probiotics?

Probiotics are  “friendly” bacteria that live in the gastrointestinal track and help maintain and protect gastrointestinal health. 

This week I’m starting with Koena Probiotic Supplement for adults.  Their products have no GMOs, are vegan, gluten free, preservative free, with no dyes or artificial flavours. The adult formula has a blend of probiotics and a prebiotic (fibers).

Koena’s also offers certain blends for women and children’s individual needs. Their products are crafted from natural medicinal ingredients to promote healthy gut flora.

 Our intestines are populated by a large number of various bacterial strains: a well-balanced and rich intestinal flora, also called the microbiota, is able to protect us from many disorders. Its activity helps with everything from digesting food, to fighting infections and protecting the body from toxins.



If you have any tips for gut health (or remembering to take your vitamins) I’m all ears!  I’ll be sharing an update in a few weeks on how I’m feeling and my recommendations on probiotics.

I started drinking kombucha this summer, I wonder how long till I start making it myself?!

    Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against
    hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve
    worked hard on. Any recommendations?

    May I simply just say what a relief to uncover someone that genuinely understands what they are talking about on the net.
    You definitely realize how to bring a problem to
    light and make it important. More people have to check this out
    and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you are not more popular
    since you definitely possess the gift.

    I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found
    any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful
    than ever before.
