Natren strives to make your probiotic experience a sweet one with their Healthy Tummy product. French vanilla ice cream flavored chewable probiotic wafers — yes, it is a mouthful, but worth it, because just wait until you get a mouthful of these tasty probiotic treats – designed to be taken between meals to promote a healthy and more regular digestive system. Whether you are dieting or just looking for a better ways to enjoy a sweet snack, Natren’s Healthy Tummy wafers bring you the best of both worlds. Now, you can have your dessert and eat it, too, with the sweet taste of french vanilla ice cream.
If you are new to the world of probiotics, let’s review a bit. Probiotics are live microorganisms that you ingest to improve your digestive health. The human digestive tract relies on a very complex community of bacteria and other microorganisms to break down and utilize food. Collectively, this ecosystem is known as the gut microbiota or gut flora. Not everyone’s system is the same though.
It is possible that changes in gut flora may be directly related to certain disease processes and even developmental disorders. Evidence shows that gut bacteria have a major impact on your overall health, but, in some cases, it’s the lack of the right bacteria that matters.
The organisms that live in the intestinal tract are essential to good health, but a lack of diversity there can affect everything from the brain to the immune system. Probiotics, by design, introduce healthy bacteria into the gut that may diversify the ecosystem and improve health.
Natren’s Healthy Tummy wafers contain 1 billion colony-forming units (CFU) of Lactobacillus bulgaricus LB-51 super strain. The super strain designation indicates a very high-quality bacteria strain verified by clinical trials. The LB-51 super strain available in Healthy Tummy has demonstrated health benefits via in vitro studies including:
The use of probiotics helps ward off bad bacteria, too. The gut flora relies heavily on balance to control the growth of bacteria and other organisms that are harmful. The LB-51 super strain produces hydrogen peroxide, which, in turn, makes the environment more acidic inhibiting the growth of unwanted microorganisms and yeast. This strain is known to be an effective antimicrobial against Helicobacter pylori, a gram-negative bacterium that may be associated with stomach issues like:
There is no direct evidence that taking a probiotic prevents these issues, only that the strain offered in Healthy Tummy might help prevent the growth of an organism present in people who develop them.
Beyond the healthful dose of good bacteria, you’ll find that Healthy Tummy consists of just a few simple and clean ingredients including:
What’s just as important is what you don’t find in Healthy Tummy:
Along with the number of calories you expect from a sweet treat. Healthy Tummy has just five calories per wafer, making it a practical dieter’s probiotic. A number of mainstream diet programs offer similar chewable snack wafers as a midday treat designed to curb even the most persistent sweet tooth. Most of them offer little in the way of benefit beyond just helping to control the appetite, though.
Natren’s Healthy Tummy, on the other hand, does all that while improving optimal digestion at the same time. You get just five calories but 1 billion CFU of the Lactobacillus bulgaricus LB-51 super strain to improve your nutritional regimen. The convenient “on-the-go” sweet wafers mean you can have an ice-cream flavored treat anytime you want. Each bottle contains 45 wafers.
Why not reach for a healthy alternative when you need a little something sweet? For just five calories, you can enjoy the taste of french vanilla ice cream and aid your intestinal ecology at the same time.

From the moment we bring them home, our pets become members of the family. Obviously it is much easier to hug a dog or cat and feel a special bond with them than it is a goldfish, but animals of any kind bring much joy and happiness to our lives. We would do anything for our animal kin. Safe And Secure October is National Animal Safety And Protection Month. Perhaps it is not ironic that it is also Emotional Wellness Month. If our pets are not doing well it can take a huge emotional and mental toll on us, as.... [Read More...]
