I’m now 32 weeks pregnant and indigestion is a common daily thing with me. Not just once a day but several times a day. It sucks, big time.
This is the worst I have ever suffered with indigestion. I Had it a little with my other 2 pregnancies but this one by far has been awful. I can only assume, according to the old wives tale, I shall be giving birth to Chewbacca within the next few weeks.
I must admit, The season to be jolly didn’t really help the situation either though. Too much chocolate, cheese and Christmas Pudding kinda made the whole thing a lot more intense.
I have discovered something special though that is actually helping me. ActiMint from the fab team at Acti-Biotic, seem to give me the relief I need, while being packed with lots of other fab benefits. And its all available as a handy pocket mint which also freshens breath too!
While its minty-ness gives me relief from my heartburn and indigestion, The friendly bacteria in the mints help good digestive health. This is down to its probiotic ‘Lactobacillus Acidophius’ which stimulate the good bacteria levels in our get and also helps boost calcium absorption. Pretty cool!
The mints come in a handy little pocket sized pot, and you get 60 per pack. Convenient to take at home, at work, or just to throw in your hand bag when out on the move.
They have a pleasurable minty taste, that isn’t too strong or overpowering and the minty-ness stays in your mouth for a good while, reassuring me of a fresh breath. They are chewable too and not at all hard so you don’t need to worry about damaging your teeth trying to crack through them as they are actually quite soft and crumble easily on the tongue.
Oh, and did I mention they contain no artificial flavouring, no preservatives, no aspartame, are suitable for vegtarians and they are sugar free!
Acti-Biotic Actimint tablets are available from The Nutri Centre, Holland and Barrett, John Bell & Croyden, All good pharmacies and independent health stores and online at www.actimint.com at just £5.95 RRP.
