The journey to improving gut health can take time. Here are some useful tips to help you keep your ‘new year, new gut’ resolutions when the going gets tough.
1. Track Your Progress
If you planned to keep a food diary but are finding it hard - make life easier by using a simple app that will do the work for you. There are some great apps out there designed to track food intake, digestive issues, bowel movements, stress levels, and exercise. They’ll even enable you to set reminders to drink water and to take your daily supplements – so you need never forget to take your Alflorex® again!
2. Anticipate problems
Plan ahead and make a list of projected problems. Examples might include working long hours, or an unexpected long journey. Write out solutions to these problems and you will feel more prepared. The answer could be a gut-friendly snack in your desk drawer or your workbag.
3. Reward yourself
Making changes to your daily life can be hard to do. Each day that you keep your resolution is a success. You deserve a reward! Buy yourself a new book, get the magazine you like, treat yourself to a night out at the cinema. By positively reinforcing your good work with a reward, you’ll want to keep going and stay on track.
4. Share your resolutions
This doesn’t mean you need to post them on your Facebook page… but tell your family or a friend. Their encouragement can go a long way. You could even ask someone to be your resolution buddy. Someone else who is trying to make a change this year. You can both update each other on progress and support one another if you hit a bump in the road. Keep motivating each other to succeed and you won’t want to give up.

When you start to take Alflorex®, it gets to work immediately and begins to prime your gut. Some people may notice some mild, temporary changes in their gut during the first four weeks, which may feel disheartening. It is important to continue to take Alforex during this time and to finish the full course. Most people start to feel the benefits of Alflorex around four to six weeks after they start taking it. Call our Careline for help and advice. One of our advisors will be happy to answer any questions or queries you may have about how Alflorex is working for you.
