As someone who suffers with gut health problems for over 3 years, I’ve come to realise the importance of taking care of the bacteria inside our microbiomes & just how this affects our physical and mental health.
This consists of a complex community of microorganisms which live in the digestive track of human beings. The gut flora is an essential part of keeping our health and immune system regulated.
With busy lifestyles and environments which are constantly changing, our microbiome – which is like a finger print ( totally specific to each person and slightly different from your siblings or parents) needs optimum health and nurture.
The nutrition, exercise and supplements you take are all factors which affect the state of the gut flora which can also be influenced by illnesses, stress, age and medication.

Collagen Peptides - How to take:
Marine Collagen peptides are best taken in the morning after the fasting process which takes place during your sleep. The proteins in the collagen will balance your gut flora and stabilise blood sugar levels which is crucial upon waking up. Not only does this help keep you full during the morning but it boosts your metabolic rate and energy levels. However, you can also add the powder into sweet treats and mix it into yogurt or other hot drinks and smoothies! If I haven’t had enough protein during the day, I will add it into other foods.
How to take:
1 Scoop into a glass of warm water or tea.
I personally prefer it in tea as the taste completely dissolves if there’s another flavour. Having said this each collagen product differs from the next so it really does depend on the branding and dosage.
This berry powder can be added to yogurt, smoothies, cakes or simply hot water! Whatever takes your fancy.
Scoop heaped teaspoon into a mug or whatever drink / latte / food product you decide to add it to.
1 billion CFU of active cultures are provided per teaspoon!
These are low sugar & low carbs making them the perfect health boost to add to your bevs!
Remember, a healthy gut is about NO STRESS. These products are fabulous as they aid in the relief of bodily stresses and alleviate inflammation.
NO STRESS = Healthier gut.
STRESS = unhealthy, bloated and upset tummy and digestive track.
I’m now absolutely hooked to these products. Not only does Wellness Lab deliver good nutrition, but it delivers quality, which is difficult to find.
I’ve found myself using the berries with cultures every morning in my breakfast bowl to boost my Gut health and energy along with a Matcha Latte in the afternoon to keep me going and the occasional Turmeric latte in the evening for that immune system boost!
Collagen is also a favourite as it increments protein into my diet by mixing the powder into my tea in the mornings and into new recipes.
I absolutely love these and couldn’t recommend them more!
