Just for Tummies is a range of products designed to support your digestive system and gut health. Formulated by Linda Booth, who runs one of the most successful natural digestive and gut disorder clinics in the UK, they are aimed at people who suffer from disorders such as IBS, urinary tract infections, abdominal pain, yeast infections and bloating.
"In my clinic I see first hand what happens when the digestive system and gut isn't working as it should" says Linda. "I developed the Just for Tummies range so my patients can live life fully, without 'tummy troubles'."
Linda sent me two of her products to review - a live bacteria probiotic and a pack of 'tummy tea'.
The live bacteria probiotics come in a capsule containing high-strength, multi-strain friendly bacteria to replenish your gut flora. I always find it really hard to review tablets as they don't taste of anything and, as I've only been taking these ones for about a week, I don't feel any different. However I do feel good knowing that I'm topping up my good bacteria and will continue to take them.
The tummy tea comes in pyramid shaped teabags, which makes me happy. I've always preferred pyramid-shaped bags to flat ones. For one, they look nicer and two, I think it gives the tea more room to infuse. Let me make it clear that this tea is not one of those bogus teatox products with their empty promises of making you lose weight, but simply a blend of herbs and spices to help soothe your digestive system.
Before I tasted the tea, I decided to try and guess which herbs were in it just by the smell. The first scent that hit me was ginger, followed by liquorice and then fennel. I even thought I got a whiff of pepper but there were a couple of other flavours in there which I couldn't identify. The actual ingredients are liquorice root, ginger root, fennel seed, carom seed, cardamom seed, fenugreek seed and black peppercorns, so I didn't do too badly at all!
I drank the tea with a teaspoon of honey to sweeten it a little. I found it quite calming and very flavourful. Even my husband loved the taste. I've been making it after dinner some nights to help with digestion and as it's naturally caffeine-free, we don't have to worry about drinking it late in the evening.
Overall I was really impressed with the two Just for Tummies products I tried. Other products in the range include milk thistle, digestive enzymes, charcoal, omega 3, fibre, garlic and a For Women probiotic, designed to support your live bacteria 'down below'. All JfT products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
