I know at the minimum you've at least heard of probiotics, if not already using them to your benefit. They are all rage right now, and why not?
They are awesome!
Probiotics are live good bacteria that are great for your health, especially your gut. You can take them in the form of a capsule or if you haven't noticed a lot of food companies have started including them in their products. Everything from yogurts, drinks to cereals. Heck, even my dog's food has probiotics in it.
But we are all different and have different lifestyles. Not everyone eats bad, but I must admit most of us do. Eating refined sugars, artificial colors & flavors, and delicious fried foods are the norm.
If you don't indulge in these things, kudos to you!
Your Gut Health Journey
The first step to improving your gut health is by finding out what type of microbiome you have. Your microbiome is an ecosystem of different bacteria, viruses, and yeast living in your gut. Everyone's microbiome contains different amounts of these things. So when you pick up a probiotic at the grocery store you are just guessing it's what you need.
Most likely it's not.
To really know what kind of good bacteria you're missing you have to take a test. Or at bare minimum, know what health concerns you want to improve. That's right, it's test time!
To Start with Thryve
Click “Get Started” on the homepage.
From there you need to choose your gut health journey. Do you want to know exactly what bacterias you need? Or do you just want personalized probiotics based on your health concerns? Or, maybe you want both!
I know it is a bit pricey, but how else can you examine your microbiome? If you really want answers this is the way to go!
If you want probiotics like yesterday (Gut Health Bundle or Personalized Probiotics), afterward you to take a little quiz about you and your health concerns. Once that's complete and you order, everything (depending on which journey you chose) will be shipped out to you.
However, if you just want to learn about the wellness of your gut and low bacteria levels, the Gut Health Testing Kit is the way to go. From there you buy the kit. And, shortly, you will receive it in the mail.
Taking Thryve's Gut Health Test is super simple.
- You activate your kit with its unique ID number
- Collect your fecal sample (trust me it's not as gross as it sounds!)
- Mail it back in the pre-paid shipping box
Let's face it, taking a fecal sample is never fun. Thryve makes the process as clean as possible. Just pretend you are doing a science experiment (which you kind of are) and do what needs to be done.
If you've ordered a gut health journey that includes a Gut Health Test (which I highly recommend) and have mailed in your sample – shortly you will receive the “We have received your sample” and the “Your Gut Health results are ready” emails.
Let me tell you, your Gut Health results are very comprehensive. Everything right down to the geeky mumbo-jumbo most people don't understand to useful food recommendations. You wanted to know what good bacterias are in your gut and that's what you will find out plus ways to help improve it if it is lacking.
My Thryve Experience
I have been taking my personalized probiotics from Thryve for almost a month now. They barely have any taste so taking them is super easy and doable. They don't make you want to gag with a horrible taste or aftertaste like some other supplements do.
Before taking Thryve I was having an awful time sleeping. I would wake up every few minutes it seemed. My normal sleeping pills and melatonin weren't even working. About three weeks into taking Thryve I was finally sleeping through the night again.
I don't know.
I do know that I have been way more regular since taking my two Thryve capsules every day. That's a HUGE achievement for me! Normally, I'm one of those people that's lucky to go once a week. But now I've had some weeks I go almost every day 🙂
I would definitely recommend Thryve, especially taking the Gut Health Test. How else are you going to know your microbiome baseline? You have to start somewhere and Thryve is the place to do it!
