You know this saying:
You are what you eat.
Well, it’s not just a cutsie thing to make yourself feel bad as you guiltily chow down ding-dongs and processed goodies or gleefully enjoy a pile of colorful produce with healthy fats, high quality protein and complex carbs. It is in fact, simple truth.
You are what you eat in every sense of the word.
Your body breaks down food, takes what it needs to build stronger (or simply survive), passes anything else and that’s it. That’s what you’re made of. And while it’s not really that simple, in fact, the human body and the growth, maintenance and destruction of it, is a complicated and fascinating science. Of which, nutrition plays an integral role.
Your choices give you power over your health
As people with free will to choose what we eat (for the most part) we have more power over our health than I think many of us give ourselves credit for. This is why I’m so passionate about what I do and why I created the Clean & Colorful Solution. To give everybody the information they needed to make smart choices so they can live their best lives.
Smart choices beyond food
In addition to following the 4 Universal Diet Truths of the Clean & Colorful Solution, there are a few other things you can do to allow your body to thrive. Our basic metabolism and immunity are not solely based on our food choices. We have an army of bacteria working on a micro-basis that support or impair our health. They are by no means created equal. This is where probiotics come into play.
What is a probiotic?
Well, the good news is that it is exactly what it sounds like. Where antibiotics kill bad bacteria to help us recover our good health, probiotics are the good guys to begin with. They are the ones that work in our favor and help us out by playing a role in healthy digestion and a strong immune system to preserve good health.
Why take a probiotic?
Doctors often recommend a probiotic to help with digestive problems, but it’s also not a bad idea to add one to your daily routine to strengthen your immune system. It’s just a simple supplement and you can take one or two times a day. I keep a pack in my gym bag and one on the counter in the kitchen so I never forget.
Why I like the Florastor Daily Probiotic Supplement
Not only does Florastor strengthen your digestive balance and support a healthy immune system, it is the only probiotic brand with Saccharomyces boulardii lyo CNCM I-745 which helps restore your natural flora. It also happens to be the best selling probiotic worldwide backed by over 60 years of use and research.
