As a busy, health-conscious woman and mom, I’m always looking for new solutions that are easy and beneficial to my family’s health, but most importantly taste good! I was pleasantly surprised as I started drinking the Wai drink mixes. They are incredibly tasty, satisfy my sweet tooth, and, in just a week, I’ve experienced a difference in digestion.  

 

Gut health is something that we are hearing more and more about. While it’s incredibly important to fuel our bodies with nutrients, it’s also important that we have good gut health to effectively digest and utilize the nutrients that we are working so hard to ingest.  Poor gut health can lead to things like thyroid issues, joint pain, chronic fatigue, among other conditions. Consuming probiotics is one of the most important things we can do to improve our gut health. Probiotics are live healthy bacteria that are beneficial for the digestive system, increasing the immune system and decreasing illness, promoting urinary tract health, and improving overall health because we are taking care of ourselves from the inside out. When our guts are healthier, we are also able to more effectively metabolize the foods that we eat. Wai’s special probiotic is a spore-forming probiotic that converts the prebiotics and dietary fat into short-chain fatty acids that supports healthy fat metabolism.  Who doesn’t want to metabolize fat better?!

 

I am not able to get my probiotics from foods like yogurt and kefir because I am dairy intolerant, so drinking the Wai mixes has been incredibly beneficial for me. I also love knowing that my kids are receiving the health benefits in a drink that they enjoy and think is a treat. These drinks come in flavors like blackberry pomegranate, strawberry kiwi, and pina colada. While I love the flavors, they have been a little too sweet even for my sweet tooth. I have been adding more water than the 16 oz. called for in the directions. An added benefit of adding more than 16 oz. of water is that there is more to share with my kids. They have no idea that the special “treat” drinks that I’m giving them is full of health benefits. We haven’t been drinking them long enough to notice a difference in our immune systems, but that is an added benefit that I’m looking forward to.
