Have you heard of Ohso before? Ohso are a relatively ‘healthy chocolate’ brand who make delicious mini bars of Belgian dark chocolate (which is packed with antioxidants to help strengthen your body’s own natural defenses), with over a billion ‘friendly bacteria’ to keep our digestive systems healthy. They’re a completely new type of product to the market and I really was so excited to find out more. The bars are currently available in two different flavours.. plain and orange and both are super delicious. At only 72 calories per bar they are not only a great way to get your ‘chocolate fix’ in a healthy and portion-controlled manner, but are a super tasty way of getting your probiotoics too!
Probiotics promote healthy gastrointestinal functions that help nourish the body and Ohso report that their chocolate is 3 x more effective than most probiotic drinks at delivering around a billion good bacteria (Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium) to your intestine. Probiotics help to keep us healthy and although our bodies produce good bacteria naturally, they can be ‘lost’ when taking antibiotics or after a period of food poisoning (you know what I mean!).. it’s always good to have a top up after times such as these to replenish your gut.
Ohso chocolate is cholesterol, gluten and wheat free, with no added dairy and is available in handy 7 bar packs – that’s a little bar of goodness each day then! You can buy Ohso Chocolate from Amazon!
