The Gut Life
Looking after your gut is important and there are a number of simple ways to go about this. Drinking lots of water and having a balanced diet packed full of fresh fruit and vegetables is key and lays the foundations for a healthy lifestyle going forwards. As the old adage goes, you are what you eat and this has never been more true when it comes to nurturing your microbiome.
Also known as ‘gut flora’, your microbiome is made up of trillions of microorganisms found in the intestine. These microorganisms help absorb nutrients from the food you eat and provide you with the energy you need for your day. In short, your gut microbiome has a huge impact on day to day health. Lifestyle choices that take supporting your microbiome into consideration can be beneficial on a number of levels, not least in supporting a healthy digestive system.
VSL#3 a highly concentrated poly-biotic, delivering high levels of good bacteria across eight different strains to help maintain a healthy gut microbiome. Every versatile little sachet contains 450 billion bacteria and each of the different strains has been specifically selected and then freeze-dried, so that they will survive the harsh conditions of the stomach. This allows them to reach and colonise the gut, where they help maintain a healthy digestive system.
Easy and convenient to take, VSL#3 comes as individually portioned sachets which are easy to store and take with you. The granules can be sprinkled onto cold food or non-fizzy cold drinks without compromising taste. They can be taken at any time of day and you can take up to four per day. It’s a case of sprinkle it, shake it, slurp it or sip it!

This winter, we asked the folks at GLOW, the Brighton based juice company to provide us with their favourite winter wellness juice recipe, and it couldn’t be easier. Take 2 medium apples, 1 pear, a stick of celery, half a cucumber and half a lime.
“This seasonal juice is great for giving you a boost this winter and there’s a wonderful freshness to it. The properties of some fruit juices are supposed to have beneficial effects on the gut and vegetables like celery are an amazing, natural source of flavonoids, vitamins, antioxidants,” says Rosie Jones from Glow.
