Did you know that our gut or “second brain” is responsible for creating 95 % of the serotonin? Therefore it has significant impact on brain functions and moods.

And, did you know that bacteria might actually keep you healthy? It all just depends on the type of bacteria. In this case, we’re talking about the benefits of probiotics. But, what are probiotics? Probiotics are bacteria that line your digestive tract and support your body’s ability to absorb nutrients and fight infection. Your body contains about the same number of gut bacteria molecules as it does cells for the rest of your body, so it’s no wonder your gut is so important to your health.

The secret to digestive health is all about balancing out the good and bad bacteria in your gut. In a healthy life, consuming probiotic-rich foods and supplements daily are likely one feature of that balancing act.

Your skin and digestive system alone host about 2,000 different types of bacteria. Probiotics benefits have been proven effective in supporting immune function, reducing inflammation, promoting healthy digestion, as well as maintaining beautiful skin. Among many other benefits, the good gut bacteria is also responsible for producing Vitamin B12 – and as I have a deficiency, I am happy to try new ways to support my immune system.

As you know from my recent blog post, I’ve been drinking Actimel as a breakfast drink a day! A part from being so yummy – I picked limette-ginger-yuzy flavour – it’s also so practical and so convenient. My nutrition and my health are sacred to me. I like to think that “I treat my body like a temple” and it reflects on how I feel inside. Not only a healthy diet, hydration and exercise keep me focused and more productive, the also give balance to my mind that tends to overthink and bring unnecessary stress in my life. I’ve been taking these little drinks everywhere with me! As I spend my weekend mornings at the lake, they are the perfect addition to my breakfast.

But what has changed because of my new morning routine with Actimel?

With its fresh taste after lime, ginger and yuzu I can certainly say that it seems like I had a better start into the day. Just because it contains vitamin B6 and D it supports my immune system and gives me a good feeling. I am very happy to introduced this drink into my morning routine next to my balanced breakfast.
