The reason why I’m trying out Bio-Strath

This post was sponsored by Bio-Strath.

The last couple months has been exhausting, both mentally and physically for me. There have been days when I just didn’t feel like getting out of bed to face the world.

Honestly, I don’t ever want to feel like that again.

Depression is SCARY! It creeps up when you are most vulnerable and alone.

It is amazing as to how sometimes you can be surrounded by people and yet you can feel so alone – especially when your significant other is missing. Having a long distance relationship with my husband has been extremely difficult for both my kids and I.

How do I explain to a 4-year-old that her father is miles away and wouldn’t make it on time for her birthday?

Such amazing things are happening for us, but it requires a lot of time and energy… the energy that I don’t really have right now because I haven’t even been eating well. I spend most of the day in my car or on my computer. I’ve been stressed. Scared. Emotional. And Tired.

I’ve been worried about my kids, the house, our finances and my husband – a husband who went from having 3 meals a day to 2 meals a day – just to try and save money where he can while living in New York.

In this situation, I knew I needed something. I was advised to try Bio-Strath. In fact, I was adamant that the entire family test it out with me! For the last month I have used this product and attempted to take it every day as per instructions but it was hard because I suck at schedules!


What is Bio-Strath?

Bio-Strath is a well-researched Swiss herbal nutritional supplement that provides 61 of the 100 different nutrients our bodies require daily, in a perfect form.

Bio-Strath is produced over a two-month period by feeding ‘friendly’ yeast cells with a mixture of herbs. The herbs in Bio-Strath were specifically chosen by Dr. Walter Strathmeyer, the bio-chemist who formulated the supplement, to serve each organ and body system. After absorbing all these herbs, the yeast is fermented by removing the oxygen in order for osmosis to take place. This means that the yeast cell membrane breaks open and nutrients are released. This process is of cardinal importance for the body’s ability to absorb the yeast as it cannot digest the cell membrane.

I’ve been reading tons of information about this product and honestly one post isn’t enough to say it all!

What Makes Bio-Strath Unique?

  • It contains 61 vital substances.
  • It is free from artificially produced flavourings and sweeteners.
  • No preservatives.
  • No artificially produced colourings.
  • No genetically modified organisms.
  • Vital substances are better absorbed due to their natural state.

My husband is very sceptical when it comes to supplements but after reading about the process, he gave me the go-ahead to test it out!

I love that it is a 100% natural product that has no side effects. Yup, no one has complained about side effects thus far which makes me feel a bit calmer about giving it to my 10-month-old son and 4-year-old daughter.

Bio-Strath works in two ways:

  1. It provides the body with 61 different nutrients, from 11 vitamins, 18 amino-acids, 19 minerals and trace elements to 13 building substances. Building substances are nutrients like lecithin, glucan, mannan, glutathione, DNA, RNA, ATP, L-carnitine and Co-enzymes – nutrients that our cells require ahead of vitamins, minerals and aminoacids. They literally build healthy new cells in the body.
  2. Bio-Strath also helps to bring about order and balance in the body.

What excites me about this product is that you can use it during and after pregnancy while breastfeeding! I’ve been down with the cold so many times and had no idea what to take to support my immune system because we all know how limited medication is during breastfeeding.

Bio-Strath comes in two different forms:

  • Syrup – which is in a base of honey and orange juice that tastes like a malt extract.Bio-Strath South Africa
  • Tablet – Gluten free.Bio-Strath South Africa

I prefer the tablet over the syrup while my daughter loves the syrup as it reminds her of sushi! Ha-ha, she has taken it every day without any complaints and even begs me for more.

Now if you are like me and hate the taste of syrups, there is a way to still get the good stuff without wanting to gag!

Tip: Bio-Strath can be taken with milk, tea, juice, yoghurt or even with a smoothie.

I prefer taking the syrup with juice however I feel like it is difficult for me to wake up drinking juice first thing in the morning since the product suggests you should take it before eating so right now I am struggling but I think that once summer arrives, it will get easier with yoghurt.

Now that I’ve tested the product, I will be using it continuously – especially for the kids. My daughter is a fussy eater who has got sick often (thanks to school), I know this is going to make a huge difference for her.

A teaspoon of Bio-Strath every morning will provide the right start to your day. 😉

The product is available at major pharmacies countrywide.
