Today we’re back with another probiotic review. This time it’s the turn of Naked Biotics; a probiotic that mixes strains of live bacteria with other botanicals and herbs that are designed for good gut health.
What is Naked Biotics?
Naked Biotics is a probiotic shot that is advised for daily use. The bottle contains 12 different strains of bacteria to thrive at body temperate and is gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan. The Naked Biotic comes in two different flavours-Restore (a mix of probiotics with peppermint, lemon balm and rosehip) and Maintain ( with chamomile, rosehip and olive leaf). Naked Biotics say the bacteria they have developed are scientifically proven to alleviate symptoms and they also contain herbs and nutrients beneficial to your body to help both restore and maintain gut health; it also looks as if they’re currently doing some clinical research. Naked Biotics explain their liquid probiotics and the fermenting process that makes these strains survive in the gut.
My experience with Naked Biotics
I was drawn to these probiotics because I liked that they also contain things like peppermint and lemon balm, things I often take separately to help things like bloating and indigestion. It’s great when probiotics add these things in so I was excited to try. The taste was inoffensive, it actually tastes more like kefir than probiotic supplements; which I guess is where the fermenting process comes in. I automatically stored mine in the fridge but noticed it advised to keep at room temperature-this This could actually be really handy for travel since a lot of probiotics that are liquid, such as Symprove, require refrigeration.
Is Naked Biotics worth trying?
So, how did I find it? When first trying Naked Biotics it gave me the classic ‘die off’ symptoms of diarrhea but this soon eased. It was pleasant enough to take and I loved the fact it had extra gut-friendly ingredients but I personally didn’t notice an improvement in my gut symptoms (however, if you’re new to the blog, I do have Crohn’s disease, which obviously doesn’t necessarily respond to probiotics). I have tried various different probiotics over the years and I’m yet to find one that really helps; although I have found the turmeric vitality one I buy helps with my reflux but that may be the turmeric rather than the probiotic. However, I like that this product mixes fermented drinks and probiotics; this could be a great alternative to kombucha or kefir and if you’re looking for a probiotic that contains other gut-friendly ingredients, it could be worth trying. I also liked that there were two different versions and a ‘maintain’ version for you to take after you’d used the restore version.
