I received the products in this post complimentary for review purposes from Green Moms Meet. All opinions are my own.
Last week our family got hit hard with a nasty tummy bug. I was down for 3 days! You know what happens to a household when mom is sick? Nothing! Nothing happens… stuff just piles up and up and up! Needless to say that first day of feeling better wasn’t so fun.
From Friday until the following Friday, our house was sick town central. All 4 of us had it at one point or the other, and it was a nasty little bug. We missed a birthday party because of it and my girls were devastated, but I wasn’t going to be that mom that brings sick kids to public places and infects everyone.
The first day of the bug there was no helping anyone, it was 24 hours of the body purging everything. Not fun.
The second day, as we began to feel a little bit better, our diet consisted of Sprite, Saltine crackers and some Gatorade. They were the only things we could keep down. Then I remembered we had some Gutsy Chewy supplements that I was given to try from Green Moms Meet. Strange name, major help.
Gutsy Chewy isn’t a medicine, or even made for stomach flu. Usually they are used to just help with that achey, burny, acidy refluxy feeling, but they really helped my stoamch flu symptoms and quite nearly saved my life. Invented by gastroenterologist and dentist, Dr. Doug Haghighi, it’s a proprietary blend of apple cider vinegar, licorice extract and papaya extract, so it naturally helps calm upset stomachs. It also has xylitol to aid oral health, and calcium and magnesium to help fortify the bodies stores of these important minerals.
I usually keep these in my purse for on the go heartburn or upset tummies, but I tried them on that second day of the stomach bug, the day of “the barfy feeling” and they helped us so much. I felt relief instantly. I could actually lay down and take a nap without feeling like I needed to hug the toilet.
I love that these supplements are packed with healthy and natural ingredients, because a lot of the over the counter digestive aids out there aren’t. I always worry about that stuff when taking medicines. Gutsy Chewy’s are safe, gluten-free, vegan friendly and
lactose-free. All natural and made in the USA!
That’s pretty win-win, right there.
