“In many ways, our gut has as much control over our bodies as our minds.”
Gut health is having its moment in the spotlight as one of the top health issues to pay attention to. After all, not only does a healthy gut ensure that our bodily systems are functioning at their prime, it can also help boost sleep quality, prevent bloating, and combat unfriendly bacteria or yeast in our bodies that cause allergies, breakouts or indigestion.
In many ways, our gut has as much control over our bodies as our minds. To ensure a robust gut, we know to do the usual things: drink lots of water, consume sufficient fibre, exercise and eat foods with healthy bacteria. But sometimes we need extra support. And Singapore-based beverage company, We Are Cultured wants to provide that additional nourishment in the form of tea.
How, exactly? With probiotic-infused tea, also known as Teabiotic. Serving up all the goodness of a brew featuring antioxidants, flavonoids and phytochemicals, these conveniently portioned sachets each contain 2.5 billion live cultures. More specifically, the patented strain of good bacteria is called bacillus coagulans GBI-30.
What you should get even more excited about is that Teabiotic offers flavoured blends from ginger to matcha, which are fused with organic Peruvian yacon root that acts as a natural prebiotic and a resilient probiotic. This ensures that the probiotic strain remains potent even when hot water is added to the mix — making the powders perfect for baking or mixing into smoothies.
Thanks to its dry form, Teabiotic is absent of any fermented aftertaste and is easy to take with you on the go. It can also be consumed up to five times a day. Since it’s derived from freeze-dried ingredients, the blends retain close to 90 per cent of its nutritional value.
For when an extra hit of sweetness is needed, find low GI (glycaemic index), organic coconut sugar in separate single serve packets in the box. Formulated around three pillars of focus, energy and detox, Teabiotic’s selection includes six kinds of blends.
We Are Cultured believes that a “robust inner self is the
cornerstone of overall beauty”
