March Dietitian's Pick - Regular Girl

Regular Girl

Five Reasons To Try Regular Girl

  • Eating habits that promote a healthy digestive system may have benefits including comfortable regularity, immune support, heart well-being and may even help with mood.

  • There are many bacteria that live in the body.  Most are helpful; some aren’t.  The “microbiome” is a term to describe all the bacteria that live in your digestive system.  When you have more good than bad bacteria in your gut, you’re in healthy equilibrium.

  • Prebiotics and probiotics work together to keep your digestive system happy, healthy and in balance.  Probiotics are the healthy bacteria that live in the gut.  Prebiotic fiber is the food that fuels the healthy bacteria, helping maintain a healthy digestive balance. It’s a synergistic relationship. Without prebiotics as fuel, probiotics would starve.

  • Probiotics are found in sauerkraut and other pickled vegetables, yogurt, kefir, kombucha, and kimchi.  Prebiotic sources include onions, leeks, asparagus, jicama, beans and lentils, and bananas.

  • Regular Girl offers the combined benefit of 5 grams of prebiotic fiber and 8 billion active probiotics per serving.  It’s tasteless, odorless and colorless, with just 10 calories and 0 grams of sugar per serving.
