Live Bacteria & Digestive Enzyme Supplement

 A supplement match made in heaven!

One of the unique things about Just For Tummies is that we are able to recommend different supplement protocols depending upon symptoms.

Nutritional Absorption

Nutritional absorption – the older you are, the more important it is! 

Ageing is linked to a variety of changes in the body, including muscle loss, thinner skin, thinning hair, memory loss, fatigue, depression and less stomach acid. Some of these changes can make you prone to nutrient deficiencies, while others can affect your senses and quality of life. However, many of these changes can be reduced […]

Live Bacteria and For Women

Live Bacteria or For Women – which probiotic is right for you?

When I developed my Live Bacteria capsules, I chose strains of bacteria that were the perfect match to help resolve IBS symptoms, painful bloating, constipation, and acid reflux.  Having worked in my IBS, digestive health and gut disorders clinic for a couple of decades, I knew exactly which strains of friendly bacteria were the most […]

Absorb - Just for Tummies

You are what you absorb!

We all know, well at the least the gardeners amongst us know, that the strength of a tree does not lie in its limbs or branches, but in its roots.  Every persistent malfunction in the digestive system will, sooner or later, eventually impact the entire body, in the same way that a disease in a […]

IBS Caused by Food Poisoning

Is food poisoning the cause of your IBS? 

Food poisoning is obviously no fun. As the symptoms rage on, you worry that you will never recover. In most cases, the acute symptoms of food poisoning do pass within 24 hours and people can return to their regular lives. But for roughly one in four food-poisoning sufferers, symptoms can linger – and linger and linger. […]

Food Poisoning

Is food poisoning dangerous?

An attack of food poisoning can be pretty grim, and more than half a million of us have to deal with it every year. That’s the official figure – the true number is probably even higher, as many won’t bother their GP about it. Typically, symptoms don’t last longer than a few days, however, in […]

Mental Health

Has poor gut health affected your mental health?

One in four of us will experience a mental health problem at some point in our lives. But even though conditions which affect our mood are relatively commonplace, we still don’t really know what causes them. It’s likely due to a complicated combination of factors for most people. But recently scientists have identified a surprising […]

Winter Viruses

Stop winter viruses and infections with a healthy and balanced immune system

For as long as I can remember, everyone in my family has taken live bacteria probiotic capsules, including my daughter-in-law when she was pregnant with my first grandchild to boost our immune system. She also took my Omega 3 capsules throughout her pregnancy. My mother, who is almost 82, never misses a day of taking […]

What are probiotics, what do they do, and why do we need them now more than ever!

What are probiotics? (Video)

What do they do, and why do we need them now more than ever! Research has shown that our gut microbes play a significant role in regulating our health, mental health and weight. When our good or ‘friendly’ gut bacteria are depleted, they not only won’t be able to fend off weight-inducing inflammation. They also […]

Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) – what everyone should know

Recently, I’ve noticed I’m getting more and more enquiries from people who’ve been diagnosed with Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and are struggling to manage their symptoms. Unfortunately, when diagnosed, they get very little in the way of support from their GP to help them reverse this condition, yet it is reversible if caught early enough. […]

Probiotics and Prebiotics

What are probiotics? The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines probiotics as “live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host”. You are what you eat. Or more accurately, you are what you feed the trillions of bacteria that live in your gut. These organisms that inhabit the lining of […]
