Proactive Use of Florastor Probiotics Make for Happy, Healthy Holidays
Date:12/11/2013

San Bruno, CA (PRWEB) December 11, 2013

It's no surprise, 'tis the season for tummy troubles, especially given that an average holiday meal alone packs in 4,500 calories and a whopping 220 grams of fat.†¹ Add sugary, processed treats, liters of alcohol, plus a serious lack of fiber, and it quickly turns into a gut-wrenching situation.

Think of it as the perfect storm: holiday stress, the overindulgence of heavy foods and an increase in alcohol—it all adds up to an intestinal disaster. Florastor, a yeast-based probiotic, not only helps maintain digestive health,†² but also supports a healthy immune system,†³ to help keep you feeling great throughout the busy holiday season—and beyond.

Why Florastor Is Different

Unlike bacterial-based probiotics like yogurt, yeast-based Florastor doesn't need refrigeration, making it a convenient holiday travel companion. It also contains 250 mg of Saccharomyces boulardii lyo, found naturally on the skin of the tropical fruits lychee and mangosteen—and is not compromised when using antibiotics.†⁴ Florastor is an all-natural, vegetarian, and gluten-free capsule. Florastor®Kids comes in a powder packet and is appropriate for children two months and older.†⁵ The powder contains 250 mg of the same probiotic yeast strain as Florastor and can be dissolved in most drinks or soft foods.

Top Tummy Tips for Healthy Eating

Consider these five healthy holiday tips to help you avoid possible digestive issues over the holidays:

  • Mother Nature knows best: Keep processed foods to a minimum. If Mother Nature wouldn't recognize it—don't eat it!
  • Cook it yourself: Seeing "real" food in front of you can help you make better choices and avoid eating high-fat, high-calorie holiday dishes.
  • Read the label: If you had to count the number of ingredients on more than one hand or if you can't pronounce them, the product probably has little nutritional value.
  • Don't drink your calories: Sugary drinks are the biggest source of added sugar in the American diet. Drink water to stay hydrated.
  • Add probiotics: Trillions of "good bacteria" reside in the digestive tract, facilitating the absorption of essential nutrients. Yeast-based probiotics help maintain the balance of good bacteria†², even when we aren't eating as well as we should.
