Get to the Bottom of Digestive Wellness with Renew Life Probiotics #RenewLifeProbiotics #Sponsored

Having lived and persevered with Crohn's, a chronic auto immune disease {affects the gastrointestinal system} for almost 17 years, I'm the furthest from shy when it comes to chatting about my "yucky" gut, you have to have a sense of humor when you've had week long hospital stays, NG tubes that run through your nose to your stomach and 4ft. of intestines resected to help you alleviate painful symptoms - but apparently having the conversation is not the norm. Shockingly, nearly 2 in 3 {64%} of women are not willing to talk about gut issues with their friends because it seems so taboo. Ellie Krieger, RDN, the rock star culinary nutritionist, who is the host of “Ellie's Real Good Food” show, author of several cookbooks, and a columnist for The Washington Post hosted a private lunch to talk about ways that the gut impacts overall health and wellness.

I'd be the first to agree due to experience, that gut issues affect the entire body, from mood, to memory, immunity, digestion and more which has prompted Renew Life Probiotics to start the “Get to Know Your Gut” campaign to better share the benefits. A proper functioning gut contains a delicate balance of both good bacteria and bad bacteria that helps with digestive and immune health. Up to 70% of your natural immune system support is in the digestive tract and good bacteria, also known as probiotics, support overall digestive and immune health.  As a crohnie, I can tell right away based on some of my reoccurring symptoms when things may just not be too right in the tummy because I'm way more tired than normal {walking zombie mode}, my belly pouch is a little more "distended" bloated {my kids are too old to continue to chalk it up to baby weight} and I take frequent trips to the bathroom {I will not drink coffee or sugary drinks outside, disastrous} which are all very annoying for a busy mompreneur like me who enjoys keeping busy and living in the moment. You don't need to be diagnosed with a chronic illness to be having digestion concerns.

Experts agree that taking a probiotic supplement like Renew Life Ultimate Flora Probiotic is a good way to support balance in the digestive tract and replenish the good bacteria found in a naturally diverse and healthy guy. During the luncheon that the hubby attended, he chatted with Ellie about my incorporating probiotics into my regimen to which she told him that it would be a good idea but that I of course should consult with my gastroenterologist about as well.

Here are 5 simple things you can do every day to support healthy digestion: 
Eat a healthy diet
Drink plenty of water
Stay physically active
Manage Stress
Take a daily probiotic supplement
