5 tips for building a daily probiotic habit
Create your own routine for success.
We’re thrilled to be the first to offer a medical probiotic to help manage healthy A1C and blood glucose levels.
We want you to be successful and see results from taking Pendulum Glucose Control. To get you there, we’ve got 5 no-fail tips to ensure you maximize the product’s benefits.
First, the essentials:
→ Store your probiotics in the fridge. Just like yogurt or sauerkraut, our product contains friendly live cultures of bacteria that thrive in the cold.
→ Take them twice daily, every day. Take 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening, with food. Consistency is critical to results.
Sounds easy enough, but we know real life gets busy, so here are some extra tips to make your new healthy habit stick:
1. Take it before a meal.
Since you'll already be storing your probiotics in the fridge, place them on a shelf at eye-level. When you're grabbing ingredients for breakfast or dinner, you'll be greeted by a visual cue to take your daily dose. Thirty minutes before (or after) a meal is the best time to take your probiotics because the acid found in an empty stomach can diminish the product’s impact.
2. X marks the spot.
Print a calendar, place it somewhere visible, and mark an “X” for each day you take your probiotics. Crossing each day off will reinforce your new habit — and seeing the unbroken chain of days you’ve made your health #1 will spur you to keep the streak going.
3. Piggyback off another daily habit.
One of the easiest ways to develop a new habit? Piggyback off an existing one. Think of something you already do twice every single day, like brushing your teeth. Take your probiotics every day before or after brushing. Squeaky clean teeth and a happy gut microbiome, check!
4. Set an alarm.
For better or worse, we tend to rely on our phones for nearly everything these days, so why not use it for building healthy habits? Set an alarm on your phone to give your brain the nudge it needs. Have it play a favorite song to reinforce the positive association.
5. Lean on a buddy.
We all need a little help from friends sometimes. Try leaning on a partner, co-worker, or friend as an accountability buddy. Tell them what you're trying to accomplish and ask them to check in on you now and again to help keep you on track. Even better if they’re also taking Pendulum: you can hold each other accountable and keep each other on track.
