Smiley360: Sundown Naturals Probiotic Gummies

Late May I received a full size sample of Sundown Naturals Probiotic Gummies to try out for another Smiley360 mission. I’ve known for a few years that Probiotics are suppose to be quite beneficial for health so I was quite pleased to be on this mission.

During this Smiley360 mission I took 2 Probiotic Gummies a day every day. I liked the flavors of the gummies but I found the gummies to  be a bit of a harder gummy than others I have tried in the past. I would have preferred it to be a little softer.

So did I notice any difference? Not really. I did have a better peace of mind from me simply taking them though. I also don’t think taking them was a waste either despite not feeling any results. I am still going to take probiotics time to time, and possibly this particular brand, because I know it is good for me. I think it might be better to start taking these closer to the dreaded cold/flu season since probiotics are suppose to help with immunity.

Do you take Probiotics? Which brand do you prefer?

 

Product Review: Live Well Compass Matcha Green Tea


LiveWellCapture

I like my morning cup of coffee but my morning coffee doesn’t always like me so I have been looking for some alternatives. I was quite fortunate to have been chosen to receive some Culinary Japanese Green Tea to try out. I was really excited about trying out this product because I had heard/read good things about it in the past but hadn’t gotten around to trying any.

Over that past week I started replacing my usual coffee with a Matcha Green Tea Latte. The recipe for the latte (found on the back of the package) recommends adding 1 teaspoon of the Matcha Green Tea Powder to a small amount of milk, and then use the back of a spoon to form a paste, afterwards you are to add 1 cup of a milk, and lastly sweeten your latte to taste with honey or stevia.

On the first day of trying out a Matcha Green Tea Latte I followed these instructions exactly. Unfortunately, I found that my latte was way too strong! And I wasn’t able to finish the whole cup. A couple days later I decided to try the Matcha Green Tea again. This time I only added half of the powder. This latte was a bit on the weak side but much better than the first one I made. The third time I made a latte I added 3/4 teaspoon of the Matcha Green Tea Powder and the results were the most pleasing.

I’m not really crazy about the flavor, but it isn’t bad. I’m just not used to it. I think the more Matcha Green Tea Lattes I drink, the more I will enjoy the flavor. But did it actually give me energy? Yes! The energy lasted for hours and I also had no jitters. I also didn’t have a crash later like I tend to have on the days I drink coffee.

I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a coffee alternative. You can order your own Culinary Japanese Matcha Green Tea Powder on Amazon today by clicking here.
