Organic Green Banana Flour
Organic Jerusalem Artichoke + Organic XOS Prebiotic
Organic Jerusalem artichoke offers one of the worlds densest sources of naturally occurring inulin, a soluble prebiotic fiber known to boost good bifidobacterium.
Soluble dietary fiber not only fuels your gut bacteria, but it also helps regulate your blood sugar levels, improves blood cholesterol levels, and leaves you feeling fuller for longer which can aid in weight management!
With studies suggesting that typical adult male hunter-foragers used to consume up at around 135g of inulin per day – compared to consumption patterns now days thought to be down closer to 2-11g per day - it is clear that this highly beneficial nutrient is in need of a come back!
Your Uplift Food - Daily Uplifter combines the powerful benefits of soluble dietary fiber from organic Jerusalem artichoke, with an especially effective emerging organic prebiotic called XOS (xylo-oligosaccharide);
XOS prebiotic has been shown in clinical trials to boost the good bifidobacterium with intakes as low as 1g per day (as per the dose provided in each serve of your Daily Uplifter);
And, in accordance with a clinical study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, which showed the greatest gut health benefits obtained from each of these prebiotics consumption was from when XOS and inulin were consumed in combination - Uplift Food has replicated the dose, to ensure each serve of your Daily Uplifter supports your good gut bugs in the best way possible.
*If you have been diagnosed with IBS we suggest you read our FAQs which will provide you with guidance on how to approach incorporating Uplift Food - Daily Uplifter in your diet.
Mood Specific Probiotics
At Uplift Food we pride ourselves in giving you PRE-biotic ingredients to ensure your gut obtains the nutrients it is truly craving.
We have however hand selected two particular stains of probiotics to include in select doses based on a clinical study which proved their particular effectiveness in relation to supporting a positive mood.
You can find within our signature Daily Uplifter products: Lactobacillus Helveticus ROO52 and Bifidobacterium Longum RO175.
When you receive probiotics in a product they come bound with a transporter which often is not disclosed to you, which typically will be synthetic in nature (coming in the form of maltodextrin or other GMO ingredients); These can actually be potentially aggravating to your gut, which is not setting the probiotics up to have a maximum benefit in you.
At Uplift Food you can be confident that we have taken into consideration every single ingredient in our products, even down to the carrier of our probiotics.
In your Daily Uplifter you will find organic prebiotic inulin as the transporter for your mood specific probiotics, leaving your gut and mind feeling both comforted and Uplifted!

Originally found natively in South America, the Stevia rebaudiana plant has been used by the Guarani people of Brazil and Paraguay for over 1500 years.
Our organic stevia extract powder is a unique plant based sweetener that is 200-300 times sweeter than sugar, has the same structure as when it is found in nature, and provides no calories, carbohydrates, or sugars per serve.
We have carefully selected the extract from the stevia leaf that has no bitter aftertaste and simply offers the tasty flavor that you deserve.
Utilising only the smallest amount of stevia, you can be confident that your Uplift Food - Daily Uplifter will satisfy your desire for a little sweetness, and all without any of the negative side effects that come from consuming too many added sugars.
Organic Vanilla Natural Flavor
Our organic vanilla natural flavor brings to you the highly desired delicious sweet and characteristically creamy flavour derived from orchids of the genus Vanilla.
The distinctive aroma and flavour stem from natural compounds found in the fruit, which result after the fruit flowers are pollinated.
With a global shortage of this highly valuable plant, we respectably incorporate only a small amount of a vanilla extract bound with a prebiotic soluble fiber to ensure your positive Uplifted experience.
