Prebiotics and probiotics to boost immunity
Go for zeroCold & Flu’s
…the natural way
It's that time of year again. Temperatures are dropping and people are coughing! The last thing you want (or need) is to be ploughing through tissues or coughing up nasty things at the wrong time and place. (we've all been there haven't we?😅).
In this blog we'll give you our top natural tips to avoid the dreaded winter cold & flu, ease uncomfortable symptoms & help your body heal faster!


Prevention is key constantly supplying your body with immune boosting nutrients makes it less susceptible to infectious surroundings. Prebiotics and probiotics boost your immunity, enhance digestion & fight off bad bacteria, so they are a great way to prevent and overcome sickness.


PREbiotics are a type of non-digestible carbohydrate that wind up in the large colon where they ferment, ready to feed & boost the helpful bacteria already in the gut.

On the other hand, PRObiotics are the live beneficial bacteria.

Therefore, PRObiotics need to feed on PREbiotics to enhance their ability to fight off bad bacteria, improve digestion, enhance your wellbeing & immunity, & reduce the risk of certain diseases.


There are sooo many different options for sneaking probiotics into your everyday routine. However, if I’m short on time I just mix a scoop into my glass of water.

When I'm not strapped for time, I make this green smoothie:

Probiotic Green Smoothie Recipe


  • 1 Scoop of Gorgeous Greens Probiotic Powder
  • Half a frozen zucchini, sounds super weird but it helps create a thick and cold consistency & a refreshing taste (make sure it’s sliced before you freeze it so your blender doesn’t have a meltdown, I’ve been there)
  • Handful of kale or spinach
  • Dash of milk
  • Dash of water
  • I am a chocolate lover so I like to add my choc hazelnut protein powder or a spoonful of cacao

*add honey if you like extra sweetness.

Here are some other ideas using our entire range of pre & probiotics:

*Remember: the golden rule with probiotics is that you can freezethem but you cannot heat them.
