How Fibre Can Get You Gains, and Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth Too!

Hey sweeties! We know the struggle is real. You want to crush it in the gym, but you also can’t help but drool over the lolly aisle when doing your groceries. Don’t sweat it, ’cause we’ve got your back. Let’s talk fibre and how it’s not just your digestive system’s bestie, but also a game-changer for those gains!

So, why is fibre so awesome?

Keeping you Satisfied

Fibre is like the world’s best wingman. Fibre is well known for its satiating effect, so it can help you feel free where you’re less likely to consume excess calories, making it easier to stay within your daily caloric needs and focus on building lean muscle.

Boosting Nutrient Uptake

With fibre in the mix, your body becomes a pro at absorbing nutrients. Your proteins, carbs, and fats are put to better use, pushing your muscle game up a few notches! Fibre helps slows down the digestion of carbs, allowing for a more gradual release of glucose into the bloodstream. This helps give you a more a stable energy supply for your workouts. More energy = more gains! 

Your Gut’s BFF

Fibre is basically your gut’s soulmate. It acts as a prebiotic which helps support the good bacteria, which means improved digestion and immunity. So, when your gut’s happy, you can focus on crushing those workouts!

Stable Energy Levels

Fibre’s got your back when it comes to keeping your energy levels on point. No more roller-coaster sugar highs and crashes. That’s like having premium fuel for your workouts.

Now, let’s talk about the star of the show – Natural Sweets. We aren’t your average lollies. Our deliciously healthy lollies are high in prebiotic fibre and are made with all-natural ingredients. Here’s the kicker – each packet comes with a whopping 7 grams of prebiotic fibre. And guess what? It’s sourced from natural ingredients like chicory root fibre. No more candy guilt, just pure, unadulterated joy!

So, next time you’re reaching for a snack or need that extra push in the gym, remember our buddy fibre. And while you’re at it, give a packet of our Fruity Gummy Snakes a go, or if you’re craving a ‘lil something sour – our Sour Vegan Gummy Bears. Your taste buds (and muscles) will thank you!

Keep it sweet, stay pumped, and let’s get those gains! 🍭💪🏼

Unlocking the Love Duo: Prebiotics & Probiotics (why our gut loves them)

Roses are red, violets are blue,

Take care of your gut, it loves YOU!

Valentine’s Day is approaching, and it’s not just about showering love on others; it’s also the perfect time to show some love to yourself, especially your gut! So, let’s discover the secret love affair between prebiotics and probiotics, the dynamic duo that keeps your gut happy and healthy #Gutgoals

Understanding the love duo: Pre and Probiotics

Move over classic duos; there’s a new iconic couple in town- Pre- and Probiotics. These gut-lovers play a vital role in ensuring that your Gastrointestinal digestion is not just functional, but happy and thriving. Think of them as matchmakers, creating the perfect environment for the colony of bacteria and microbiome located in your gut to grow and flourish.

Without prebiotics and probiotics, your gut would be a sad place, deprived of the love it needs – AKA proper nutrients and an optimal environment for digestion.

The VIPs at the Gut Party

Probiotics take the stage as the hosts of the hottest party in town… they’re the living bacteria that help your body maintain a happening community of microorganisms in your gut. On the other hand, Prebiotics are the VIPs to this fiesta… they strut right on into the gut party as a type of fibre that is not digested by the human body but instead fuels the living bacteria that work tirelessly to keep your gut (and this party) happy and healthy.

Foods Rich in Prebiotic and Probiotic Goodness…

Wondering how to invite this love duo into your life? Start with these prebiotic rich foods like:

Bananas, Rolled Oats, Apples, Flaxseeds and Chicory Root!

Pssst! Ever wondered what makes FUNDAY Natural Sweets irresistibly good? It’s Chicory root, a sweet sensation pleasing your tastebuds whilst showering your gut with all the prebiotic love.

For probiotics, fermented foods are going to be your go-to’s for this one… I’m talking kefir, kimchi, live yoghurt and Kombucha!
