The  Beauty Blend is Vida Glow's all natural formulation of probiotics and superfoods to promote overall well-being and enhance inner and outer beauty. 

The Beauty Blend contains two strains of probiotic bacteria, Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Bifidobacterium Lactis. L. acidophilus is a common strain of bacteria found in the human mouth and gastrointestinal tract while B.lactis is mostly found in the large intestines and is frequently added to therapeutic probiotic supplements. 

In addition to probiotics, Vida Glow's Beauty Blend also contain chia seeds, pumpkin seeds and flaxseeds, all high in soluble fibre to support digestive health. Fibre in the gastrointestinal tract attracts fluid towards it, forming a gel. This gel slows digestion, ensuring adequate absorption for nutrients through the intestinal wall, keeps you feeling fuller for longer and balances blood sugar levels. The fibre found in chia seeds can selectively promote the growth of good bacteria in the intestines. Beauty Blend provides you with 2.4g of dietary fibre per serve. 

Vida Glow's Beauty Blend is a great addition to a healthy diet to help boost probiotics, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre intake to maintain healthy digestion, gastrointestinal flora balance, immune function and the growth of hair, skin and nails. 

I recommend sprinkling Vida Glow's Beauty Blend onto natural yogurt, mix into bircher muesli or adding to a smoothie.
