Frequently Asked Questions
WHY IS GUT HEALTH SO IMPORTANT?
The gut microbiome plays a very important role in your health by helping control digestion, strengthening your immune system and assisting with many other aspects of health (weight gain, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, sleep etc).
WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE HAVING GUT PROBLEMS?
Poor diet, stress, drug-use are some of the big factors throwing our gut ecosystems out of balance and making it difficult for our bodies to re-balance without some help.
WHAT’S ONE THING EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT GUT HEALTH?
70% of the immune system is located in and around the gut. A healthy microbiome means fewer sick days, lower risk of allergies and autoimmune conditions.
HOW CAN WE ALL MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO OUR GUT HEALTH RIGHT NOW?
Eat a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fermented foods. Oh and have a tummify™ daily.
WHY CONSUME FOOD BASED PROBIOTICS VS CAPSULES?
Beneficial bacteria in fermented foods are live and active, and ready to act in the gut. Probiotics in powder form need to be activated in the body which can take hours after ingestion (if they make it to the gut!).
Fermented foods and drinks are rich in better absorbed nutrients produced during fermentation, a process which increases the bioavailability of the nutrients.
WHY DO WE NEED TO HAVE TUMMIFY™ PROBIOTICS EVERY DAY? AND WHEN SHOULD ONE DRINK IT?
Probiotics must be present in sufficient numbers for the body to function properly. The cells of the intestinal lining, where the probiotics live, shed like the cells of our skin on a regular basis.
As a result, it’s critical to replenish the good bacteria in your gut on a regular basis. tummify™ is a great way to consume probiotics everyday morning, noon or night.
IS IT SUITABLE FOR PREGNANT AND BREAST-FEEDING WOMEN?
Yes. tummify™ is safe to drink while pregnant and can be included in a healthy diet. Probiotics are frequently prescribed to help with gastrointestinal problems that arise during pregnancy.
IS IT SUITABLE FOR BABIES AND CHILDREN?
tummify™ is safe for children over 12 months.
