Good health starts in your gut!

Show your tastebuds and your gut some love with this protein yogurt containing prebiotics and probiotics!

Good gut health depends on many kinds of bacteria living and thriving in your gut(1).

These bacteria may be tiny, but they play a big role in our digestive and overall health. They can help to strengthen our immune system, help to absorb nutrients, produce serotonin (the happy hormone), maintain gut health and improve regularity(2-4).

Probiotics work in different ways; the health benefits depend on the strain.

One of the most well researched strains is B.lactis (BB-12®), which supports gut health by keeping you regular(5).

What are


Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients that your good bugs eat(6).

Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) are prebiotics that have been shown to increase the number of good bugs (Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus spp) in your gut and therefore support your gut health(7).
