Unless you have been living under a rock for the last year or so, you can not have missed that probiotics are making a well deserved comeback into our lives. The idea that a person's gut health has an impact on their health, is not by any means revolutionary… it has been around for centuries. It is just that now, more and more studies are being done on the benefits of probiotics and how they play a role in our overall health. And about time I say!
Not only is it partly responsible for our metabolism, digestion, bloating, immune system and allergies… but it is now been shown to have a much further reaching impact.. Our brains. The community of bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses, known as the microbiome or Gut Biome, found in the gut, put simply can help you decide if you feel happy or sad today, energetic or lethargic, motivated or lazy or sharp minded or foggy. Researchers are also looking into direct links with Autism, Anxiety, depression and other disorders. Wouldn't it be amazing, if we could help reduce the instance of this conditions, by simply ensuring our Guts are always healthy and allowing it to heal our own bodies.
Didn't some famous guy tell us this over two thousand years ago?
“All disease begins in the gut” ~ Hippocrates the father of modern medicine.
He also said “let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” something we seem to have forgotten in today's society. We are so busy eating what is fast, easy and readily available, that we forget to actually pay attention to what is in that food, what it is lacking and how that is impacting our health. As a community we are so quick to buy into the advertising campaigns, pretty packaging or a lower price point and it is leading us down a disease ridden path.

You may not even realise that your overall health is suffering due to the specific health of your gut. Quick fixes treating the symptoms, not the root cause are generally where you can go very wrong!
Our diet, lifestyle choices, stress, antibiotics and prescription medications, as well as toxic chemicals in our food, water, drinks and environment are all depleting our intestinal flora, and the supply of helpful enzymes and beneficial bacteria. We need to take responsibility of our own health… we need to prevent disease and poor health BEFORE it takes hold rather than fighting to fix it when it hits, and forking out thousands of dollars to treat something that can potentially be avoided altogether by making a few simple changes to your daily life.
By supplementing good bacteria… we can take the first steps to getting our health back on track.
At Pure Glow we decided, we need to help you do that! In addition to offering our Vegetable forward, balanced juice cleanses, that include ingredients like Aloe Vera, Ginger, Coriander, mint, fennel and Cucumber, which all aid in the well being of your gut, We bring you our Daily Cleanse Probiotic.
If you suffer from symptoms such as;
Inflammation (face, hands, feet)
...you may really benefit from including this probiotic in your daily health regime. Such a small daily habit can help you heal your gut from the inside out, relieve the above symptoms and give you that radiant glow we talk about so much!!
In creating a probiotic, we wanted something unique, simple and plant based. Our aim was to bring to market a product that would support digestion by providing essential variations of live bacteria, as well as introduce ample antioxidants all to assist your body while cleansing and beyond.
What we came up with:
The Daily Cleanse Probiotic is made with raw, real fruits that are slowly fermented over 21 days.
Papaya is one of our all-time favourite fruits for detoxification and beauty. It is teeming with natural enzymes and antioxidants that give you benefits beyond digestive health to improve your skin, digestion, reduce candida growth and alkalize.
Pomegranate gives the added benefit of a wider spectrum of deeply nourishing polyphenol antioxidants which are known to be very powerful for preventing disease and maintaining beautiful health.
