Experience the Benefits
Support Gut Health
Your gut contains over 100 trillion bacteria that play a vital role in your overall health. Tea is known for its polyphenol content. Polyphenols are a prebiotic-type substance that help feed healthy gut bacteria, such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria. A healthy balance of gut flora has been linked to digestive support, healthy weight management, immune support and more!
Tea holds the unique honor of being the one beverage (besides water) used for centuries by monks and religious practitioners to aid them with fasting. More than ancient folklore, tea is now one of the most commonly recommended solutions by leading medical doctors to help patients fast more easily and effectively. Tea helps you stay fasted for longer, which can enhance the benefits of your fasting goals.
Support Calm Energy
Tea contains l-theanine, an amino acid shown to promote calm and help elevate mood. It works synergistically with tea caffeine, which is metabolized over several hours to provide calm, sustained energy.
Our BYWG Supplement of the Month for September 2020 is our potent probiotic formula Probiotic Power Blend. The 10% discount code for the month is guthealth10 (case sensitive)
Probiotics are probably one of the most varied and confusing supplements available. There are over 200 strains of probiotics and not all are equal in effects or in benefits. We have done the hard work for you. Our doctors have spent months researching the best recommendations and reading the current literature to identify the top 9 strains to include in our Probiotic Power Blend.
We have included key probiotic strains that are temperature and acid resistant so they make it through the stomach and into the intestinal tract for more effectiveness.
We have chosen key strains to aid in fighting pathogenic microbes and assisting with H.pylori, vaginal and urinary tract infection management and prevention.
We have added strains to reduce ulcer risk and aid in managing food allergies and irritable bowel symptoms.
Taking a probiotic supplement can be very helpful, but only if the right probiotics are inside the capsule. Compare ours to most others on the market and we know you will agree that this is the best value for the best quality! They have a 2 year potency effectiveness when refrigerated and are shelf stable with no loss of potency for 3 months.
