I’ve been using probiotics and eating fermented vegetables for years because I truly believe the state of your gut is the state of your health. That said, Hyperbiotics’ prebiotic blend, has been a big part of my life lately. It’s the holiday season and there are parties galore. This means you’re not always making the healthiest choices. And why should you? Who doesn’t splurge during the holiday season?
But surprise, surprise, it seems that the Prebiotic blend is keeping my metabolism revved up — and my weight down! I’m even thinner than I was last holiday season!
And unlike any healthy formula, Prebiotic tastes fantastic; sort of like a pear/banana! It’s all natural and vegan with no soy, no gluten, no dairy, no added sweeteners. I simply add 1 scoop to a glass of water and enjoy.
My gut always feels great — even with all the holiday partying! It looks like Prebiotic will be a new staple in my life.
But wait … there’s more! There’s also a probiotic formula for oral health! Their Pro-Dental chewable tablets are excellent to give your mouth an extra boost after brushing your teeth. They freshen your breath while helping your immune system.
I give both of these products a five-star excellent rating!
A few days ago I updated my Facebook profile page with this photograph I took over the weekend. A couple friends complimented my white teeth, so I thought I’d share my secret.
Earlier this year I started a practice called “oil pulling.” You take a tablespoon of coconut oil and swish it around your mouth for 20 minutes. That seemed a bit “much” for me, so I changed the rules a bit. I use less than a teaspoon of coconut oil and swish for 10 to 15 minutes instead of the full 20.
The benefits of doing this is to get rid of bacteria in your mouth, whiten teeth, prevent gum disease, and even prevent heart disease! Just Google “oil pulling” and see for yourself.
Note, I always brush my teeth afterwards. Some people say that you don’t have to, but I do.
Now, to up the anti, I started putting a drop of Thieves Young Living Oil into the coconut oil. This is what gives my smile that “just polished” look. Even after a meal my teeth still look and feel fresh.
This is a much better option than getting your teeth chemically whitened. It’s healthier and cheaper!
