For the past few weeks, many of us have been riding a rollercoaster of emotions... and it’s all thanks to COVID-19. This unprecedented pandemic has caused more chaos than we could have ever imagined: there’s the stress of lost jobs, the anxiety surrounding our health, the loneliness that comes from being in isolation, the grief from losing our routines and social lives, the uncertainty of navigating this new world, and the general panic that there is, in fact, a virus taking over the world.
The emotions are new and scary, and often lead us down paths we’re not used to. We’re not keeping up our exercise regimes, we’re working from the couch, and we’re reaching for snacks we wouldn’t normally keep in the pantry. Naturally, we’re starting to feel the effects physically and mentally.
During this time, it’s crucial to incorporate prebiotics into your diet. There’s a lot of confusion about the difference between prebiotics and probiotics, and the role each of them plays in our health.
Let’s break it down:
Probiotics are the good bacteria found in our gut. Often, we’re convinced we need more of them (hello, daily supplements), when really we need to focus on the ones we already have. Because in order for probiotics to look after us and fight illness, they need to be fed. But what do you feed a pack of hungry probiotics?
Prebiotics, of course. Prebiotics are a plant-based fibre that fertilises the good bacteria living in the gut. Unfortunately, not many of us get the required amount of prebiotics from our diet alone — and that’s the exact reason we started Kreol.
Every bottle of Kréol Prebiotic Sparkling Drink contains 6g of this much-needed fibre, sourced from natural ingredients like chicory root and apple cider vinegar. By sipping on Kréol regularly, you’ll help the good bacteria to flourish, and support your immune system at the same time.
We’ve spoken a lot about the link between the gut and the mind, so as a bonus to your improved gut health, you can also expect a clearer mind, better focus and happier moods.
In other words, it’s a delicious way to support your physical and mental health when you need it most.
