WIN! Probiotic drinks from Perkii

How’s your gut feeling? There’s a huge amount of confusion around what we should/shouldn’t/can/can’t eat, but some advice is agreed on across the board. And one of them is that to feel good, we need to ensure we have the right balance of gut flora.

We need probiotics in our lives to improve digestion, immunity system functions, the quality of our skin and even our emotional state – but how do we know our probiotic are really reaching the gut?

While there are many probiotic products available on the market, some can’t deliver their good bacteria, with the probiotics either dying in the product or in the harsh acid environment of the stomach well before they reach the gut. Many don’t accurately even outline the strain or number of strain of probiotics in them.

PERKii is a new drink that has just arrived on the shelves of Countdown stores, across the nation. The 350ml naturally flavoured probiotic water comes in 3 refreshing flavours – Mango & Passionfruit, Strawberry & Watermelon and Lime & Coconut. And unlike some drinks, you’ll even get the kids drinking this one!

PERKii uses Lactobacillus casei, (LC431®), the world’s most researched probiotic genus, and ensures every
bottle of PERKii is dosed with more than a 1billion CFU. To ensure the probiotics end up right in the gut, PERKii uses PROGEL™ technology: a seaweed-derived covering to coat the probiotics, effectively armour-plating them against stomach acids and getting them to where they do their magic, the gut.

I have two 8-packs of PERKii to give away in Mango & Passionfruit, and Strawberry & Watermelon. To be in to win, head to and tag a friend who hasn’t heard about this awesome website yet. Anyone who likes the page will go into the draw.
