As you've probably noticed, this month, we're all about gut health! Below, we take you through each of the products you'll find in the May Box and how they can help you take control of your gut! Here's the breakdown:

Unlike other ready-made soups on the market, it's free from preservatives which makes it a winner in our books.
Hart & Soul Beef Bone Broth
Collagen is the most abundant protein present in the human body and responsible for the maintenance of youthful-looking skin, healthy hair and strong nails. Where can you find collagen? Bone broth!

ATP Science Gutright Daily Sachet - Rasbperry
If you struggle to drink enough water during the day and looking for a sneaky dose of probiotics, this is a double whammy! It contains a number of gut-living ingredients which helps balance the gut bacteria, and the delicious raspberry flavour makes it super easy to drink.
Pangkarra POD Roasted Faba Beans & Chickpeas
Did you know that most of us aren’t consuming nearly enough fibre? Nope! As per Australian guidelines, the recommended amount is 25g-30g a day. Amongst other health benefits, dietary fibre is essential for digestive health and regular bowel movements! Legumes such as chickpeas are a great source of insoluble fibre, and we're loving these handy little packs of roasted chickpeas for a quick and easy fibre-filled snack on the go.
Supercubes Lemon Slice Wholefoods Bar
Made from real food ingredients, the Supercubes Wholefood Bars provide prebiotics from ingredients like almonds, dates, and chicory root, and probiotics from organic Lactobacillus for a double hit! They contain no added sugar and are vegan-friendly. Learn more about what to look for in pre and probiotic snack bars here.
Almo Milk Chamomile Almond Milk
Chamomile is renowned to help soothe and calm the stomach and we love it combined with almond milk! A great alternative for those with dairy intolerances, there are a number of delicious recipes you can check out using this product like this Chamomile, Lemon & Rose Slice or this Chamomile, Pear & Cinnamon Oatmeal.
Health Kultcha Motion Potion
Psyllium, which comes from the seeds of the herb Plantago ovata, is one of the best known sources of fibre. It acts as a natural bulk laxative thanks to the way it soaks up water in the gut, softens stool, promotes regular bowel movements and improves overall digestive health. Psyllium husk also happens to be the main ingredient in the Health Kultcha Motion Potion and unlike many other fibre supplements on the market, it contains only natural ingredients with no artificial flavours.
Xavasa Grass-Fed Beef Bone Broth
Bone broth usually comes in the form of either a liquid or concentrate - both equally beneficial and you can usually spot a good quality bone broth if it has minimal ingredients, a long cooking time and made with grass-fed beef where possible. This beef bone broth concentrate is super nourishing on the gut (the gelatine found in bone broth aids in the protection and healing of the mucosal lining of the digestive tract) and makes for a great base in soups and casseroles if you prefer to work it in your meals.
Blooms GingerCalm 1000mg Travel Pack
Ginger is one food that's renowned for soothing an upset stomach and easing symptoms of nausea. For when you're on the go or travelling, Bloom's has an easy travel pack consisting of ginger capsules that mimic the effects of fresh ginger in times of need.
B-Fit Hydration Beverage
Along with fibre, ensuring you're drinking enough water is another important part of your poop; it helps to move things nicely along the digestive tract and soften the stool, preventing or alleviating constipation. When you’re dehydrated or at risk of dehydration, your body loses electrolytes along with water; in which case it’s not enough to just hydrate with water. B-Fit Hydration Beverage is flavoured naturally with ingredients like organic maqui berries making it a great energy drink swap.
