What is a probiotic?
Probiotics are often referred to as “good bacteria.” They are microorganisms, or microflora, which when taken in adequate amounts, have a beneficial effect on the body. For an organism to be considered a probiotic, they must be able to survive the difficult journey through the stomach acid to arrive in your intestines where they do their work. Good Day Chocolate uses a shelf-stable probiotic strain called Bacillus coagulans or LactoSpore®, which has been studied extensively over the past 20 years proving its ability to support digestive health and mitigate digestive distress.
How much probiotic is in a box?
There are 8 billion CFUs (colony forming units) per box, or 1 billion CFUs per piece so you can easily control how much probiotic or “good bacteria” you need.
How many probiotics do I need to take?
Our Probiotic supplement contains a shelf-stable probiotic strain called Bacillus coagulans (LactoSpore®), which has been proven to promote digestive health when consuming 2-4 billion CFUs (2-4 pieces) per day for 10-14 days. If you have persistent digestive distress, have a compromised immune system, or are taking an antibiotic, you may want to increase your dosage to 5-6 billion CFUs (5-6 pieces) per day. The beauty of Good Day Chocolate is that we provide you with 1 billion probiotics per chocolate supplement piece so you can adjust your quantities and take exactly what you need.
Are these safe for children?
Yes, and check out our Kids Probiotic product!
However, we always recommend speaking with your pediatrician if you’re considering giving a vitamin or supplement to your child.
Does it contain dairy?
Nope! Our Probiotic supplement is made with Fair-Trade dark chocolate. It’s also vegan friendly!
Why is it important to take probiotics?
When our intestinal microflora is in check it can do many things to support our overall health and well-being. It helps support the immune system. It aids in the absorption of nutrients. It suppresses the growth of harmful bacteria that can cause gas, cramping and irregularity. Seventy-percent of our immune system lives in our guts. Our gut cells shed each day much the way our skin cells do. As we age (or due to other factors like stress and medication) our bodies aren’t as successful at regenerating the good bacteria needed to keep potentially harmful bacteria in check. Taking a daily probiotic can provide your body some needed assistance in restoring balance.
Is it organic?
We are not certified organic but we use Fair-Trade chocolate and we only source premium, Non-GMO ingredients.
Is it Non-GMO?
Yes! All Good Day Chocolate products are made with premium, Non-GMO ingredients.
Is it gluten free?
All of our dietary supplements are naturally gluten-free, so we never use wheat as an ingredient, and we do everything in our power to ensure that wheat doesn’t contaminate our products. However, we manufacture our products in a facility where we use shared equipment that may be used at some point to manufacture products that contain wheat. Although the equipment is washed thoroughly, like scrub-scrub-scrub, distill-distill-distill, and even though quarterly tests are performed to ensure we are less than 20 PPM, the FDA still requires that we include the statement “may contain wheat” on our packaging.
Can I overdose on probiotics?
No. Our bodies will take what we need and pass the rest along.
What if my dog eats it?
Our Probiotic supplement is not good for Rover. You never want to give your dog chocolate. Talk with your veterinarian on what probiotics are pooch friendly.
Is it vegan friendly?
Yes! We use Fair-Trade dark chocolate and no dairy. Our Energy and Turmeric supplements are also vegan-friendly.
How much is one serving?
There’s two servings (4 pieces per serving) in each box. The beauty of Good Day Chocolate is you control what’s right for you. One piece has you “nice and easy” and four pieces is “right as rain.”
What is the coloring on the shell?
No dyes around here! We use natural spirulina and turmeric extract to color our Probiotic Supplement. The candy-coated shell adds a splash of color and flavor, and helps keep the pieces from melting, so you can take them on the go.
If I’m taking an antibiotic, is the probiotic still effective?
Probiotics can be very helpful for those taking antibiotics. Antibiotics can be quite powerful and can kill good and bad bacteria, so it’s important to take a probiotic two hours before or after taking your antibiotic in order to give them an opportunity to survive and thrive.
How much sugar?
There are 2g of sugar per piece.
How many calories?
Our Probiotic Supplement is waistline friendly! 4 pieces is only 60 calories and helps with your digestive system. We’ve “gut” you covered.
What happens if you take two or more kinds of Good Day Chocolate together?
You’ll see rainbows and unicorns! Seriously though, it depends which few you mix. It wouldn’t be helpful to take and Energy and Sleep together, but Probiotic Supplements will complement any of our other products.
Where is it manufactured?
All of our products are made with love in the USA!
Most importantly, we want you to be happy and excited about your Good Day Chocolate! So, if you receive product from us that is damaged or defective, please email email@example.com with a picture of the product and we’ll replace it ASAP.
