In case you didn’t know, August is National Wellness Month! Wellness is not just a state of being in good health menthally, but it is your diet, your fitness regime, your way of life. People are looking at the outbreak of COVID-19 as a global reset and much like the world, your body also benefits from a reset.
Being that August is National Wellness Month, which focuses on self-care, creating healthy routines, and stress management, it is a great time to start looking at your overall wellness more closely and make changes. Your body is one big machine and like any well-oiled machine it needs to be properly taken care of; both on the inside and outside.
It is imperative to be conscious of what you are consuming and to stock up on food + beverages that are high in probiotics, which promote a healthy balance of gut bacteria and have been linked to a wide range of health benefits from digestive health, boosting your immune system, weight loss and more
In celebration of National Wellness Month, here are three MUST TRY brands that promote a healthy living lifestyle, offer plant-based low-calorie alternatives, and good-for-you eating habits;
- DAH! Yogurt
- Penne Straws
- Wild Tonic Jun Kombucha.
Three MUST TRY Brands
DAH! Yogurt Offers 15 Billion Probiotics Per Serving
DAHl! is the leading India-styled Lassi and yogurt company in North America. The “India-style,” and “slow-cultured,” yogurts reflect the ancient Indian techniques of culturing yogurt at lower temperatures for longer times than most, if not all, modern-day yogurt brands. The result is a high-probiotic, richly-textured, intensely-flavorful yogurt, great for digestive health.
As many leading competitors do not declare the actual probiotic count, DAH! remains committed to probiotic count transparency. Meditation and yoga, paired with the probiotic-rich lassi and yogurt products, is the essence of the DAHlicious brand and lifestyle.
The core values of mediation and yoga are a vital way to keep people connected and balanced mindfully, while things beyond our control are happening around the world. To reinforce this message, DAH! is the first yogurt brand to make a probiotic count that is consistent per serving across all product lines. A yogurt that promotes gut health!
DAH! offers two lines of yogurt: 100% grass-fed organic whole milk dairy lassi, and almond milk cup yogurts. The dairy line consists of lassi (the Hindi name for drinkable yogurt) in 32oz and 7oz bottles. The plant-based line consists of almond cup yogurt in one 5.3oz size.
The flavor varieties currently being offered by DAHl! include Plain, Alphonso Mango, Field Strawberry, Wild Blueberry, Golden Milk, and Madagascar Vanilla. The company’s products can be found in Market Basket, Bristol Farms, Smart & Final, Safeway, Walmart, Publix, and specialty grocery stores.

Organic Honey Based Jun Kombucha by Wild Tonic
WILD TONIC® Jun Kombucha is a great well-rounded beverage option to add to your diet during National Wellness Month, and to keep there beyond.

Wild Tonic contains prebiotics, probiotics, amino acids, and antioxidants, without any artificial flavorings or sulfites.
