Staying Healthy with Sound Probiotics + Giveaway!

It is cold and flu season here in the Midwest and it is in FULL force! We have had students out of school anywhere from 3 days to almost 2 weeks with illness. Thanks to extra sleep, healthy eating, and boosting the body’s immune system with Karma Kombucha and Sound Probiotics I have stayed healthy so far this season. I started taking Sound Probiotics in March of 2015 and have noticed I have been sick MUCH LESS frequently!

As endurance athletes, we stress our bodies during hard/long workouts, which makes us more susceptible to illness and fatigue; as a middle school teacher, I am engulfed in germs on a daily basis. Combine these two factors and I am the perfect breading ground for bad bacteria and viruses.

“When the microbiome is out of balance, it can decrease energy levels, injure metabolism, and give rise to a host of other long-term health problems. It’s like a rain forest that’s been clear-cut: prone to mudslides and unable to shelter the plants, animals, birds, and insects that once thrived there. Some of the nation’s top scientists go so far as to say that unhealthy microbiomes lie at the heart of the most prevalent health issues today, like heart disease, obesity, asthma, and even cancer.” ~Joseph Hooper

Since taking Sound Probiotics daily for almost 3 years, I have been sidelined from my training due to illness only a few times. Probiotics not only benefit our immune systems, but they promote good gut health by improving nutrient production and absorption. They can also positively impact our mood and mental health.

I have been SO impressed with the state of my health while taking Sound Probiotics, that I want to share a bottle with my readers. Please comment below with why you would be a good candidate for Sound Probiotics. One lucky person will be drawn at random on February 14. This candidate will receive one bottle with a one month supply of Sound Probiotics to jump start your gut and immune health!!

I am an ambassador for Sound Probiotics, but these are my own opinions and experiences. Thanks to Sound Probiotics for contributing one bottle of Sound Probiotics for the giveaway and providing all of my readers with a 10% discount by using the code PUSHMYLIMITS at checkout!

  1. I just got diagnosed with the flu and strep…ugh! I was trying so hard to stay away from the crud but it got me (damn kids!)
    Would love to get my system back on track and boost my immunity more!

  2. I don’t know if Canadians are eligible or not-it’s totally ok if we’re not 🙂 As a mom of three kids, I get every little bug they drag home…and I usually get it last-so I’m extra tired from looking after everyone else first! It’s a vicious cycle in our house sometimes.

  3. I’d be curious to try these! I’ve used a different kind of probiotics on and off the last couple years. I’ve gotten out of the habit and think I need to get it back in my routine. I have bloating issues way too often and I think probiotics have helped.

  4. Hmm, haven’t thought about taking probiotics for immune boosting. Lots of vitamin c, lots of sleep, good diet and fresh air is the goal. I am doing a lot of training preparing for winter ultras (live in Canada), running ultras in spring and a triathlon later in the year and both of my in laws have been in the hospital for many months and I visit usually 5x a week. My family is trying very hard to stay healthy as there is such potential for problems if we do catch something. Thanks for the probiotic suggestion!
