Happy Tummy, Healthy Self
I just completed the Renew Life 30-day Challenge and my body is thanking me.
When I was first asked if I wanted to participate in the challenge, I was sceptical.
Could I do it? Would it make a difference? Will I feel any different in the end?
The outline was straightforward – commit to taking the Renew Life Ultimate Flora Critical Care for 30 days, while integrating the Leaf by Bellabeat into my everyday routine. Simple enough. I was also provided with The Keto Diet Cookbook by Leanne Vogel. Eating Keto was not an expected part of the challenge though I did decide to follow it for the first two weeks to see how my body responded.
Over the first two weeks I was diligent in following the Keto diet, using my Leaf by Bellabeat and taking the Ultimate Flora Critical Care. Come week three, what became apparent was what was working for me and what wasn’t. I believe in listening to your body. Because we’re all different, what works for us is defined by who we are.
I attend aqua fit classes 5 days a week. Being in the water is my happy place. The Leaf is not waterproof. This meant that I was unable to track the majority of my daily physical activity. What I loved about the Leaf is what it revealed to me about my sleeping patterns. I still wear it in the evenings to keep on top of my bedtime routine and sleep patterns.
Committing to the Keto diet for 14 days made me re-evaluate my eating patterns. It broke my daily sugar craving while helping me increase my daily water intake. I’m all about eating fresh fruit and vegetables, and do so daily. Not being able to consume any pasta or legumes – just doesn’t work for me. I’m more comfortable and energised eating vegetarian than Keto.
What stuck through all of this was the improvement I saw by taking the Ultimate Flora Critical Care. Ultimate Flora Critical Care’s blend of 50 Billion active cultures from 10 different strains in a ‘once a day’ serving helps ensure a healthy microbacterial environment in the intestinal tract.
The term ‘probiotic’ means supporting life. Probiotics are friendly, beneficial bacteria. These bacteria (as well as others) are normal inhabitants of the large and small intestines and are a very important part of a healthy digestive system. By maintaining good gut health you’re aiding your immune system and overall well-being. This I could see within the first few days. Adding the supplement was easy and is something that I’m carrying forward with. Keeping healthy is pivotal if I want to stay active. Taking Renew Life Ultimate Flora Critical Care is a simple way for me to maintain this.
