Today I wanted to revisit the topic of probiotics. In a recent post on the best supplements for digestion, probiotics were the one thing I avoided recommending. Why? Well, probiotics are, in my opinion, far from simple. They’re thought to benefit almost every health condition but reports are often conflicting: do they work? Am I taking too much? Which strain is best? Do they survive our stomach acid?

Despite being a gut health blogger, my experiments with probiotics have not been as successful as I’d like. I am never sure how I am supposed to feel or if they’re working. In the past when I’ve tried high strength ones, I find they worsen symptoms and struggle to take them consistently. It’s because of this that I believe food based ‘good bacteria’ are best.

I’ve written about my love of Sauerkraut in the past and being on the lookout for more food sources meant that I discovered ‘Daily Cultures’- a probiotic tea. I actually found this in Sainsbury’s and, like you was initially skeptical. After all, it is probiotic 101 that you should NEVER drink probiotics with hot tea! Intrigued, I did more digging and actually discovered that this could actually be the future of probiotics…

Daily Cultures a strain called Bacillus Coagulans, a spore-forming bacteria. What does this mean? Well it’s thought that it behaves almost like a seed. It’s only when it actually gets to the small intestines and the conditions are perfect that it starts to germinate and it multiplies rapidly.

 This strain is proven to be more effective than many others but the best part is how convenient it is. It can be frozen or heated and that’s led to being it used in food: Daily Cultures adds the probiotic to tea bags and porridge. The tea comes in 3 flavours: Green, Breakfast Tea and Peppermint (my favourite of course).

The tea itself tastes exactly the same as regular tea – which is why I’m so excited about it! I tested it on my family too! My husband, who drank it regularly, (and doesn’t have IBD) actually said he felt a lot less bloated and noticed a real difference in his symptoms. As for me, I absolutely loved feeling I was doing something so simple as drinking a cup of herbal tea and knowing it was doing me good (and unlike my previous attempts into probiotics, it gave me no bad side effects).

     

For me, this could be the future for probiotics and perhaps supplements in general. I’m excited that the lovely team at Daily Cultures has given my readers the chance to get involved and check out the teas for yourself!

    I’ve heard these are really good for the body. I had peppermint tea after my operation and really enjoyed it. It sounds like a good alternative to usual tea!

    This peppermint tea looks quite nice! I’m quite fussy with my peppermint teas. I should drink them a bit more as they are very good for you 🙂

    I love the branding on these boxes (is it bad that’s what I look for in a box of tea?)

    Might have to get myself some of the peppermint one…

    I think that supplements like this can be a minefield for people, but I would try these teas as it’s something that would fit into daily life easily. I think it’s great to add it to tea, which most people love
