Happy Friday friends! Today, I’m stepping away from food and focusing on our gut health. It’s so important to protect our bodies and do everything we can to keep them healthy, and that starts with the gut! This week I’m sharing my review for Silver Fern Brand products.
First, I want to share some information on the Ultimate Probiotic.
Getting enough probiotics in our diet is SO important. Probiotics are a wonderful way to help your gut health. I have been consistently using a well know brand of probiotics for the past 2 years. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about brand loyalty; however I decided to give Silver Fern’s Ultimate Probiotic a shot after hearing so many amazing reviews from friends. After doing some research on their products and testing them out myself, I was seriously impressed.
I began substituting the Ultimate Probiotic for my usual probiotic supplement immediately. While I don’t often share much personal health information, it’s important you know that I’ve had some gut issues going on in the form of irregularity for the past few months. I have noticed a direct correlation between my stress levels and my digestive system. Let’s just say that when I’m feeling extra stressed or anxious, my digestive system is not happy. After taking this for about two weeks, I’m already noticing some improvement in both my digestion, energy levels and irregularity for the better. I’ll try to do another post soon to include another update.
So if you’re new to probiotics, I’m sure your wondering, what are the benefits?
- Improves digestion and food tolerance
- Reduces gas, bloating and digestive discomfort
- Aids in recovery of the flora after antibiotic use
- Supports nutrient absorption
- Reduces inflammation
- Improves favorable immune response and supports the reduction of allergies and asthma
- Improves regularity of bowel movements
- Acidifies the digestive tract to support the growth of good bacteria
So what is the difference between a prebiotic and a probiotic?
Both prebiotics and probiotics are important for human health. However, they play different roles:
- Probiotics: These are live bacteria found in certain foods or supplements. They can provide numerous health benefits.
- Prebiotics: These substances come from types of carbs (mostly fiber) that humans can’t digest. The beneficial bacteria in your gut eat this fiber.
The gut bacteria, collectively referred to as the gut flora or gut microbiota, perform many important functions in the body.
Eating balanced amounts of both pro- and prebiotics can help ensure that you have the right balance of these bacteria, which should improve your health.
Bottom line, probiotics are beneficial bacteria found in certain foods or supplements. Prebiotics are types of fiber that feed the friendly bacteria in the digestive system.

WAI Drink Mix
To my surprise, the drinks were clear! No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives!
These are just a few of the health benefits of WAI Drink Mix:
- Each packet contains 3 grams of fiber!
- Encourages healthy fat metabolism
- Converts fiber into fat busting compounds known as short-chain fatty acids
- Potent immune stimulator
- Supports healthy digestion
- 5 billion CFU probiotic blend
- Ability to produce 12 strong antibiotics to fight opportunistic and harmful bacteria
- Reduces gas and bloating
If part of your goal is to increase your water intake, this product provides all that and more. Not only does this drink mix sweeten and flavor my water, but it has fiber and is another great way to get my probiotic in as well!
The Wai Drink Mixes come in six delicious flavors: mango peach, cran raspberry, blackberry pomegranate, strawberry kiwi, strawberry mango and pina colada. These all taste really good! I had to play around with each flavor to find the right ratio of water:powder, but once I did I loved them! The Mango Peach and Pina Colada were two of my favorites. These packets are perfect for on the go. Toss a few packets into your purse or suitcase for traveling; no excuse not to get your probiotic in!
I love this probiotic and really have enjoyed reading all of the research that has gone into making it. Totally worth trying!
