Experience a myriad of symptoms of health issues and discomfort? It could all lead to one thing. It’s very likely that the body systems from within are not functioning optimally. Are you eating well and sleeping well? It always boils down to our lifestyle and habits.
I’ve always been perturbed by digestive issues simply because I often get bloated in my tummy and experience irregular bowel movements. I read that by eating probiotics help with digestion but that didn’t work quite well for me. It’s only recently that I’ve learnt about the powerful combination of probiotics and prebiotics. Probiotics are simply healthy live bacteria and yeast. These microorganisms can confer health benefits, especially in our guts because they play an important role in keeping the gut flora balanced. On the other hand, prebiotics is actually food substrates for the probiotics. So I guess that is why most probiotic supplements do come with added prebiotics like the Flat Tummy sachets I received from Nature’s Glory. These are health supplements which helped to improve gut health and eased constipation. Unlike those weight loss tea or supplements which usually contains laxative ingredients, the Flat Tummy by Nature’s Glory does not contain any laxatives.
The Flat Tummy is a unique combination of gut-friendly Probiotics and Prebiotics (lactose, oligosaccharides, Hatomugi Pearl Barley, plant enzymes). Unlike most probiotics which tend to degrade in the intestine, the special strains of live Bifidus and Lactobacillus, present in Flat Tummy, are able to withstand gastric juices and heat of up to 85 degrees C, reaching the intestines alive.
Once inside the intestine, these gut-friendly bacteria proliferate and help loosen impacted faeces in the large intestine. The good bacteria also help to break down harmful toxins in the intestinal system and improve the health of the intestinal environment.
These probiotics produce a gentler action and do not cause any abdominal pain like laxatives. Other benefits also include reduced belly swell, slimmer waistline, smoother and brighter skin, reduced body odour, reduced shoulder pain and even stabilised blood pressure. A healthy gut, a healthy body.
I was given 4 sachets of the Flat Tummy to try and after drinking each sachet, I would monitor my body condition and took down some observations. Below are my notes.
Recommended dosage (on product packaging):
“1 packet per week to maintain health and beauty. For stubborn constipation, take 1 packet every 2 days for first 2 weeks and reduce gradually to 1 per week when conditions improve. ”
I consumed Flat Tummy early in the morning on an empty stomach as recommended in the instructions given on the packaging and mix the powder formula with warm water. It tasted just like a yoghurt drink.
Two and a half hours later, I had to make a trip to the toilet. I experienced bloating and my stomach was churning. There is slight discomfort but there were no sharp abdominal pains. Flatulence occurred throughout the day. I made the second trip to the toilet again in the afternoon and by early noon, the churning stops and my stomach was not as bloated as before. Everything seems normal.
The next day my tummy was flatter and I was energized that day. Bowel movements seem regular for the next two days.
One week later, I consumed the second sachet. I experience the same signs I had after drinking the first sachet of Flat Tummy. My stomach bloated up during the day but the bloatedness went down in the evening. But for the next couple of days, I did not visit the toilet so I decided to consume the next sachet about 5 days later. Since I had stubborn constipation, I should have taken it once every 2 days.
I experience less stomach churning and discomfort. It is as if my body has got used to the action of the probiotics. I visited the toilet once that day. Likewise, I did not visit the toilet for the next few days.
I’ve taken the fourth sachet after two days and likewise, there was flatulence but lesser churning of the stomach. This time, it took longer for me to visit the toilet after consuming the probiotics.
Overall, I didn’t experience much of a change physically as I guess it takes time especially when I have a stubborn constipation problem, to begin with. I felt great at the start when I was first consuming it so I might want to purchase a few more sachets and see how it goes. It is like giving your guts a good detox.
Another health product I got to try is Nano Energy Booster for Sleep support. It’s an interesting product as it uses nano energy to help restore the body. The Science behind it is fascinating but it does require some reading up and research to fully understand about NanoWave technology. If you wish to read up more about the science and technology behind this innovation, you can visit this link.
In essence, these Nano energy booster patches deliver natural energetic frequencies that allow the body to restore healthy energy more effectively. There are various kinds of boosters with different functions. I tried the Nano Energy booster for Sleep support which helps restore your natural sleep cycle.
I was told by Nature’s Glory that it would work more effectively if I stick the patches on my left earlobe so I’ve been using these patches for almost 2 weeks now. Each patch last for a week and I was surprised that the adhesive behind the patches is quite strong and lasting. The patches could still stick to my skin after days. I would use the patches about 15 minutes before bedtime and the next morning, I would peel it out and stick onto the surface mini ziplock bag that comes along with the patches.
On some days, I had actually forgotten to remove the patches from my earlobes. Although I didn’t exactly feel sleepy wearing the patches, I felt a little weary and tired. Wearing the patches didn’t exactly feel sleepy and fall asleep instantly because, on some nights, I do toss and turn on my bed. But what I realised is that it induced my body to adopt a natural sleep pattern where I had to hit the sacks every day before 1 is. The patches somehow induce my body to sleep before a certain timing so that I could get enough rest. Before using the patches, I could stay wide awake till 3 am.
Interesting, isn’t it?
