WILDBRINE | 14-Day Live Shots Challenge

What happened after two weeks of taking Wildbrine's Kimchi Live Shots...

Wildbrine products are top-notch when it comes to finding the most delicious sauerkraut on the market! If you haven't tried sauerkraut because you'd expecting something sour or you're afraid of the texture, then you're just down-right missing OUT! I don't just love it because of my German heritage (yay Germany!) I love the amazing health benefits of adding fermented veggies into my nutrition plan.

So what's the big deal with fermented veggies??

Well.. they're known for their probiotic power! What is a probiotic? Probiotics are healthy gut bacteria. When you take antibiotics, sometimes you can deplete the healthy bacteria living in your gut. By taking probiotics, you can reintroduce this bacteria and improve gut health. There’s also some research that shows that probiotics help with allergies, skin conditions, and digestive problems.

I usually pop a high quality probiotic with my morning supplements, but when I can find them in live real food, that's the much better option!

Wildbrine's products are fermented naturally, using only sea salt to kick off the birth of lactobacilli, a good bacteria that boosts your digestion, immune system, and overall well-being. 

I contacted them to find out more about their products, and they offered that I try their 14-day Live Shots Challenge. Without hesitation, I said yes!

How did they taste?

These little bottles pack a flavorful punch! They sent me all three flavors: Citrusy Japanese, Spicy Korean, and Zesty Thai. My personal favorite was the Zesty Thai (ingredients: napa cabbage, water, sea salt, garlic, ginger, mint, basil, lemon grass, korean red pepper, lime juice) - The ginger, mint and basil combo were refreshing and a perfect addition in my morning Apple Cider Vinegar and lemon water tonic. All of them were delicious and made me feel like I was starting my day off on the right foot and getting things moving! Plus, they have zero calories, zero sugar and zero carbs! (Technically, they're a negative calorie food, just all nutrients baby!)

What happened to my gut?

By day three, I began noticing my digestion and overall bloating improve. I have suffered from acid-reflux due to my previous bulletproof coffee addiction (a great way to kick off the morning, but for me - it's best in moderation) and I noticed the side-effects subside quite a bit from drinking the shots versus coffee right after waking up.

By the end of the first week, taking the shots became a part of my routine. I found taking the shot straight instead of putting it into my water was more enjoyable. Sipping on the Spicy Korean was just too difficult! (I'm hot a huge spicy person)

At the end of the 2 weeks, I felt like my gut was moving and shaking in all the right ways! It wasn't a super noticeable difference, but I could tell the shots were providing healthy nutrients versus the strong acid from coffee. Taking the Live Shots actually were a great way for me to ween myself off of coffee, and I wasn't even thinking about quitting but now I don't even crave it! How cool is that?!

Would I purchase them in the future?

Absolutely! The Wildbrine Kimchi Live Shots will be a mainstay in my refrigerator as a helpful supplement to keep my immune system thriving (especially during these high-allergen months that we're having right now in Nashville!) and help keep diseases at bay!
