Imagine sitting back, relaxing, and drinking a can of Pervida – healthy and perfectly carbonated. The crisp refreshing flavor is just what your taste buds were looking for – but what about your gut? Although we are confident the taste bud benefits will keep your palate satisfied, the real benefit to Pervida is in the gut and immune health benefits. In fact, supporting gut and immune health are two of the main reasons Pervida was created!
Let’s dive into the significance of gut health. According to U.S. News, the intestines host a whopping 1,000 unique species of bacteria. These microorganisms have many critical functions for overall health such as balancing pH levels in the colon, fending off toxic intruders, and boosting the immune system. When a person’s gut health is regulated there are numerous benefits for your entire body, mood, and memory. On the other hand, when the immune system is out of sync, inflammation and disease is more likely to happen – and no one wants that. In some cases the gut has even been referred to as “the body’s second brain” because it has its own nervous system.
Digestive disorders are the top reason people visit their doctor; which reveals that, as a society, we may not be paying enough attention to the significance of gut health. You may be wondering how you can tell if your gut is a bit out of whack. Signs to look for include excessive gas, bloating, cramping, constipation, abdominal pain, and more. It’s also important to not be overstressed (easier said than done, right?) because too much stress can affect how well your gut works. If you’re feeling like your gut could use a boost, meditation, exercise, laughter and an improved diet are areas to focus on. And man-oh-man do we have some good news for you: Pervida is a great drink to incorporate into your diet to get your gut on the right track. Did we mention it’s super tasty? We call that a win-win!
Pervida is made using pomegranate seed oil (PSO). PSO is rich in antioxidants, which maintain cell integrity. In addition, PSO is rich in punicic acid (PUA), which supports the immune system and maintains gut health. Our researchers at Pervida even patented the use of PSO and PUA to improve digestive and immune health within our beverages.
Since ancient times, plant extracts and nutraceuticals have been used as medicine. Nutraceutical is just a fancy word for a food containing a medicinal benefit. When Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, once said, “let food be your medicine,” he was promoting the healing properties of plants, like PSO.
For a 12 ounce drink, Pervida is chock-full of benefits to quench your taste buds all while benefitting your health. With zero calories, no sodium, no carbs Pervida is truly the perfect way to enjoy a tasty beverage 100 percent guilt-free. So next time you’re craving a better way to enjoy a beverage—and one that will have lasting benefits — crack open an ice cold can of Pervida. We guarantee your gut will thank you.
