Nausea and vomiting affect about 85% of pregnancies and can significantly impact the quality of life, particularly during early pregnancy.
In a first-of-its-kind study, researchers found that probiotics significantly improve the symptoms of pregnancy-related nausea, vomiting, and constipation.
The study lasted for 16 days.
A total of 32 participants took a probiotic capsule twice a day for six days and then took two days off.
They then repeated the cycle, and the participants experienced relief from nausea and vomiting again.
Another finding was that vitamin E levels increased after taking probiotics.
Higher levels of vitamin E were associated with low vomiting scores.
Vitamin B6 may also be helpful for nausea during pregnancy.
At our clinic, we have found that Beetflow also helps lower nausea and constipation, because it stimulates bile flow.
What Do Probiotics Do?
Our bodies are home to a mix of good and bad bacteria.
They’re pretty much everywhere — the mouth, gut, and skin.
Probiotics help to:
- Improve your immune system
- Protect against hostile bacteria
- Protect you from viral infections
- Improve digestion and absorption of food and nutrients.
- Boost your energy
- Regulate your happy hormones
- Detox heavy metals and other undesirable substances
Under normal or “balanced” conditions, friendly bacteria in the gut outnumber the unfriendly ones.
However, it is rare to find a ‘balanced’ person these days.
Everyone needs a helping hand.
Supplementation with probiotics and enzymes and eating fermented foods help to tip the scales in your favour.
At our facilities, we only stock supplements that give you results in the shortest amount of time, and mostly we get these direct from the manufacturer, saving you money.
Probiotics can also help offset the bacterial imbalance caused by taking antibiotics.
Antibiotics kill good bacteria along with the harmful ones, often leading to gas, cramping or diarrhea.
Probiotics help to heal and seal your gut and help prevention of many conditions such as diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn’s disease.
Probiotics are a valuable benefit to infants, toddlers, or patients who need to build strength throughout and after an illness.

Fermented foods are a vast improvement to the raw, ‘fresh’ vegetables that you see on the supermarket shelf.
A fermented cabbage has 20 times the amount of available Vitamin C, is packed with enzymes that keep us alive, and brims over with good bacteria as opposed to the ‘raw’ cabbage which has lost most of its goodness within a few hours of being harvested.
Now more than ever, your health depends on these good bacteria.
They start working as soon as they enter your mouth, releasing enzymes to break down the proteins and carbohydrates in your foods and spring-cleaning the whole of your gastrointestinal tract, from top to bottom.
Fermented foods help you to become more resilient to stress, toxins, and infectious diseases.
If you think eating fermented foods is hard work, think again.
You only need 1 teaspoon of fermented foods with each meal to start feeling better.
Each teaspoon contains not millions, but trillions of good bacteria.
Another word for good bacteria is probiotics.
Pro-biotics stands for pro- life.
In other words, fermented foods are life-giving/enhancing and we need them now more than ever, as the world we live in becomes more polluted and chronic health problems cripple our society.
Organic vegetables are the preferred choice for the basis of fermented foods, but in the long run, it doesn’t really matter, because the good bacteria that are employed during the fermentation process gobble up the harmful pesticides, so you end up with a product that is 100% life-enhancing.
These are the foods our ancestors survived on.
The food wisdom and food cultures were passed down from one generation to the next.
People protected their sourdough batches with their lives and some batches kept going for 200 years!
This created a feeling of connectedness between each successive generation and a sense of belonging in the community that is sadly lacking in our generation today.
Fermented foods play a significant part in community building.
Can you think of any celebrations without bread, coffee, wine, and cheese?
These are all foods that have been fermented and improved on.
Caleb will show you how simple and safe it is to make your own weekly batch of Kefir, Sauerkraut, Kombucha, Kvas, Sourdough Bread, and much more.
As you create your own ferments you will move into a more harmonious way of life.
You learn how easy it is to make your own apple cider vinegar, coconut milk drinks and fermented butter.
The list is endless and the only limit is your imagination.
You get a chance to eat all these magical foods during the workshop and we finish with some hands-on, where you can make your own cultured veggies.
