Going with my Gut and Country Life!

*This post was created in collaboration with Country Life and MomsMeet. All opinions are 100% mine and I appreciate your support of Prim and Propah.

When I set about to be healthier in this life (more than just losing weight and all that physical appearance related health business), I have to say that my eyes were opened to a TON of new things that I had never even thought of... for instance, gut health. Now I had to really do some research to see what the heck "fixing your gut" actually meant and did it have any basis in real benefits for me and what I'm looking for and it turns out that it does. So what I learned was that an unbalanced gut may disrupt signals between the gut and brain, causing instability between gut microbiota and the immune system.

Country Life was nice enough to share a collection of their Gut Connection supplements that connect your gut health with issues that matter to you. For the purpose of this review, I started with the Gut Connection Energy Balance and have been taking the supplements each morning with my breakfast. I'll start by just saying that I never thought I had gut issues but I wanted the clean, clear energy and alertness. Gut Connection by Country Life is a whole food fermentate prebiotic that feeds the bacteria in your gut and helps maintain its lining to improve your gut microbiome health. Gut Connection is different because it is probiotic-free, so you can take it alone or with your favorite probiotic, which is great, right?

So I know that some people, my husband included, doesn't think that taking supplements like these will do anything for you, but I have noticed an improvement digestion wise (I'm talking less churning nervous stomach) and have seen an uptick in energy and am sleeping better. As someone who is able to track her anxiety in how her stomach and adjoining systems reacts, tracking this all in the journal that came with my supplements was super helpful (you can download it here). Seeing an improvement in that area is a huge plus for me! I am looking forward to trying some of the other products but am going to continue the journey with the Energy Balance before trying something new, since this seems to be working so far so good! Have you ever tried using something like this? I'd be curious to hear what you think.
