At Cosmix, we believe that a happy gut leads to happy health. And since you’re here, that means you agree too! Curious about how the My Happy Gut health mix helps your gut and overall health? Have questions? We’re answering some of the most frequently asked questions below. Read on!
What exactly does My Happy Gut do?
With the growing consumption of fast food and the occasional skipping of meals, the gut (intestines) tends to take the first hit. My Happy Gut is a gut health mix that provides an assorted mix of nutrients our body is usually deprived of as a result of these habits, and helps in creating a healthy gut flora. What’s gut flora? Simply put, it’s the good bacteria that reside in your intestine, enabling absorption of important substances from the food, thus keeping you healthy. It promotes healing of intestinal damage, if any, and ensures a balance in the internal environment.
How does it work?
My Happy Gut is packed with dietary fibres and Prebiotics – nutrients that promote growth of good bacteria, which work to improve gut health at the most basic level. Unlike a regular fibre-based mix, our gut health mix doesn’t just digest the previously consumed or following meal, but also maintains the pH and chemical balance of the intestines so as to avoid growth of harmful bacteria, in turn preventing absorption of not-so-healthy substances we may consume. It supplements the food components and helps in their breakdown for easier absorption. Regular consumption will help reduce the burden on your intestines to do all the work.
When should I take it?
You can take our gut health mix whenever it’s convenient for you! However, most of our My Happy Gut users prefer consuming it the first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, to get the best out of the mix. There is no hard and fast rule, except that you consume the mix consistently!
How much is enough per serving?
We suggest about ¼ - ½ teaspoon a day for optimal benefit, as per your preference.
What should I take it with?
The best feature of CosMix super-foods is their versatility. Be it with your daily glass of milk, warm water, or along with your meals, My Happy Gut can work its way into your life and your food effortlessly! As yogurt is a commonly consumed probiotic agent, for those without lactose intolerance, a cup of the mix along with yogurt can be helpful. Most of our customers buy My Happy Gut and consume it just with water, which also works just as well. Feel free to experiment! Here’s a recipe to get you started!
When can I expect results?
Everybody is unique, and responds differently and in their own time. Most of our customers begin to feel lighter and less bloated within 7-10 days of regular consumption. However, consistency is key, for best results.
How can I tell if I need My Happy Gut?
Very simple. Do you find yourself feeling uneasy a few hours after meals? Do you eat fast food, and then jump to thinking “I should go on a diet”, the moment it makes your tummy uncomfortable? Is your poop schedule irregular and bowel movements not as great as they should be? If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of the above, then Cosmix's gut health mix is the product for you!
I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Will this help me?
My Happy Gut helps in easing the digestion and absorption process as well as promotes healing of the tissues of the intestine. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a condition that is stress induced and results in an overactive gut. While the best way to salve the gut would be to address the problem at its primary cause, consuming our gut health mix will definitely contribute towards maintaining existing gut health, if not heal the condition.
Will this help with Diarrhea/Constipation?
The ingredients of My Happy Gut have been shown to regulate bowel habits with regular consumption over a period of time. The individual components have various effects that act in a multifaceted manner to provide holistic aid to the intestines. For alterations in bowel movements of short durations, such as 3-4 days, we suggest giving our gut health mix a go along with gut friendly foods, as have our customers who have noticed positive changes.
These products are not cures for any medical condition, diagnosed or undiagnosed, and we would recommend seeking help from your local health care professional regarding bowel irregularities lasting over 1 week and/or presenting with other symptoms.
Is this advisable for children?
Children’s bodies are capable of regenerating cells much quicker than adults, and as such don’t require further assistance. If your child is suffering from irregular bowel movements, please bear in mind that CosMix is not a treatment of any kind.
Is it safe for pregnant women and nursing mothers?
While there is no particularly harmful component in the mix, we do not advocate the usage of the mix during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
I am taking other tablets/medication. Can I still take this mix?
Yes. My Happy Gut does not contain any active chemicals that would get in the way of your medication. However, it would be advisable to take the gut health mix along with food and not on an empty stomach, in this case, so as to ease the gut from direct exposure to multiple products.
Why goes into the making of our gut health mix?
Mulethi, or liquorice root, is known to relieve constipation, stomach discomfort, heartburn, acidity and other stomach problems. It also acts as a mild laxative, playing an effective role in stimulating bowel movements.
Ashoka acts as an anti-inflammatory agent in the stomach.
Triphala is known to reduce constipation, abdominal pain and flatulence and improve the frequency and consistency of bowel movements. It has also been shown to reduce intestinal inflammation and repair intestinal damage.
Papaya and Ginger are known prebiotic agents that provide fibre for healthy growth of gut bacteria.
The mix is particularly formulated to provide complete gut health that your body deserves.
