Taking a quality probiotic supplement along with prebiotics and supplements with sugar balancing properties can be extremely beneficial.  Activated YOU  Probiotics has 30 bacteria strains. Activated You Morning Complete by Akasha Naturals is a first-of-its-kind formula designed to fortify the body with the nutrients it needs for optimal health. The formula, features a powerful metabolic blend of prebiotics, probiotics, and green super-foods designed to help balance support metabolism and to provide antioxidant protection, among other benefits.

Activated You Probiotics, contained varied strains with benefits unique to each strain High-quality manufacturers list their potency (in Colony Forming Units, or CFUs) on the date the supplement actually expires. Board-certified neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter, author of The New York Times best-sellers Brain Maker and Grain Brain, states: “Avoid products that indicate a specific number of bacteria ‘at the time of manufacture,’ and instead look for products that, like other supplements, have a shelf-life.”15

It’s clear our ancestors’ microflora was healthier than ours for a few simple reasons: they ate a diet rich in wholesome fruits and vegetables grown from nutrient-rich soil; they included little to no sugar in their diets; and they enjoyed a steady diet of fermented foods. While our lives are certainly easier than theirs, our microflora could no doubt benefit from a return to these time-tested practices.

Pass the Morning Complete, please!
