GKB Probiotic Range helps with Beauty, IBS and Digestive Problems

Most of us suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome as well as a myriad of digestive problems or issues… some more then others… it has been said that these are usually triggered by:
* Food. Many people have worse IBS or digestive problems symptoms when they eat or drink certain foods or beverages. These include wheat, dairy products, citrus fruits, beans, cabbage, milk and carbonated drinks.
* Stress. Most people with IBS or digestive problems experience worse or more-frequent symptoms when going through stress…

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is actually a common disorder that affects the stomach and intestines, also called the gastrointestinal tract. Symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, or both

It often happens when we eat a big meal, and our digestive system gets overloaded and is not able to handle food as well as it should. This causes heartburn from acids going back from the stomach into the esophagus can causes  gas, nausea, or vomiting.

I was definitely excited to try the new GKB products because personally I am also one of those who are suffering from on off digestive problems…. And these awesome GKB supplements promises to help improve our intestinal health. 

And having consumed and trying these range of products- my digestive issues has been pretty much addressed and I never had such a comfortable two weeks with the ease of going to the toilet, not getting much heart burns or gastric or constipation….

Let me run you through these awesome products which I have been trying and loving….

GKB Probio+ contain 5 strains of probiotics and 2 types of prebiotics and comes in a ready-to-eat granule form…. One sachet of GKB Probio+ had 20 billion of viable probiotics!!! 

* Improve intestinal environment
* Alleviate constipation and diarrhea
* Enhance immune system
* Daily health maintenance

Suitable for whole family
For children 2 years and above: 1 sachet daily after food.
For adults: Take 1 sachet twice daily after food.

Being someone often suffering from constipation, after consuming this for like a few days , I finally found it sooo easy going to the toilet…. 

GKB Probizymes is formulated with Probiotics, Prebiotics, Carbohydrates Enzyme, Protein Enzyme and Lipid Enzyme that helps to aid digestion problems. GKB Probizymes contains 2 strains of probiotics: Lactobacillus Rhamnosus & Bifidobacterium Longum and also 8 types of digestive enzymes (for carbohydrates, protein and fats)

It comes in a ready-to-eat granule form with a mild orange taste with about 4.5 billion viable probiotics per sachet!!!

GKB Probizymes alleviates indigestion symptoms (bloating, burping, heartburn) and this helped me sooo much since all I do these few weeks is eat eat and eat for Ramadan and it helped with my bloating and heartburns

GKB G-Pro Gold is suitable for individuals with severe gastrointestinal diseases such as ulcerative colitis, Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). … I like that this supplement consists of 10 different types of probiotics and two different types of prebiotics, and it improves gut flora, which definitely helps with our IBS…   To be honest my stomach never felt so comfortable for such a long time… and this happened since I started consuming GKB probiotics products which included this 

GKB Lactobacillus Rhamnosus Plus uses a probiotic strain widely used to prevent gut diseases such as leaky gut or dysbiosis. This supplement is ideal for women and helps address women’s issues such as reducing skin sensitivity and promoting healthy skin. Therefore it helps people with skin problems, includes eczema, dermatitis as well as those suffering from vaginal infection or urinary tract infection… 

I have some skin irritations and this really helped  cos I did not have such a hard time needing to scratch myself …

GKB Lactobacillus Plantarum GKM3 is often the go-to probiotic choice for better gut health that could lead to weight loss…. Aside from that, this product also increases the skin water content in the face and hands that promotes glowy skin as well as skin elasticity. This product is very suitable for people who are trying to lose belly fat like me, and therefore you could tell which of these are my favorite !!!! Hahahaha

GKM3 is a probiotic strain that fermented from Brassica Juncea (Green Mustard)that focuses on promoting gut health.

It contains about 40 billion of probiotic in a capsule and formulated using advanced manufacturing technology from Taiwan. In addition, it has 10 times the absorptivity, which means that it can stay longer in our intestine. Thus, it ensures that it can really absorb all the fat and come out from the body. 

Overall, the selection of products that GKB offers is definitely great and highly recommended to all having some form of digestive problems (practically most of us!!!) Each product is designed with particular ingredients to address particular gastrointestinal problems, and I discovered that they all had positive effects on my overall gut health.

Music 2023 - joan share new single ‘loner’

Acclaimed alt pop duo joan today announce their new single and accompanying visuals ‘loner’, the latest track to be lifted from their highly anticipated debut album superglue, out April 19thvia Photo Finish Records.


‘loner’ discusses the poignant experience of feeling like you don’t fit in, and the isolation and sadness that can result. The emotional yet upbeat track also highlights how important it is to find your tribe and those feelings of acceptance and joy that result when you are comfortable in yourself and around others. 


Watch the video for ‘loner’


joan share, “We talk all the time with each other about how we never really fit in with any crowd in high  school, and we’re lucky to have found people that match with us and make us feel comfortable in our own skin. It’s a hard few years though, not having that  connection with anyone specific that *really* gets you. This song was brought out  from that emotion and experience.


With fervent pop rock soundscapes under cathartic and infectious melodies, ‘loner’ is a captivating anthem dedicated to every misfit. The band further share, "You know when you go to a party or really anything with  crowds, and you have that sort of pit in your stomach because you don’t feel like  you belong and you really just don't want to be there? That’s what loner is about — being in those situations and knowing you’re better off just sticking to your own  corner and keeping to yourself. But, it’s also about someone walking into that  party that sees you and gets you and feels the same way you do and you’re  thinking, “i’d rather be alone, you’d rather be alone, should we alone together?”  and all the sudden the thought of being with someone doesn’t seem so bad.”


The single is the latest from their 12 track full length which is over three years in the making, following their beloved EPs portra, cloudy, hi  and bye. Entitled superglue, the album is an existential journey influenced by the duo’s recent transition into fatherhood. The duo will embark on a 20 date nationwide U.S. headlining tour beginning May 13th, to support their album, see below for full list of dates.

Music 2023 - Rema Holiday / Reason You

Global hitmaker Rema returns with ‘Holiday’ and ‘Reason You’, a double-sided single to mark his first solo release since dropping his debut album ‘Rave&Roses’ last year.

Both singles showcase a new, evolved sound for Rema with uptempo ‘Holiday’ reflecting on his struggles and the sacrifices he has made in his life - from Benin City to his debut EP in 2019 - highlighting his self-belief despite doubts, criticism and rejection. On the flip, Rema transports the listener through his enchanting, meditative vocals on ‘Reason You’, a song dedicated to one particular individual who has caught his eye.

Rema is best known worldwide for his hit single ‘Calm Down’, which hit No. 6 on The UK Offical Charts, and No. 1 on the Billboard Global (Excl. U.S) chart, and has become the best performing Afrobeats video on Youtube of all time.

 ‘Calm Down’ has received unwavering support across India and The UAE, it was the first No. 1 single on the debut MENA chart, and now Rema is the 65th most streamed artist on Spotify with over 37 million monthly listeners, the highest amount an artist from Africa has ever achieved. 

At the end of 2022, Rema’s sold-out worldwide tour proved why he has continued to be one of the most hyped artists in the global game. His two sold-out Brixton shows in London boasted surprise appearances from Skepta, Dave and Fireboy DML, to name a few, with Rema's high-energy performance impressing the harshest of critics.
Marking a year since his debut album dropped, Rema’s star has continued to shine brighter than ever, proving the immense impact Afrobeats has had on the world. Rema has grown up in front of everyone's eyes and has known the potential he held inside from day one.

Now 22 years old, 2023 is a coming-of-age year for the Afrorave pioneer who will continue to grow, create and leave his Divine mark on music. For more information on Rema, please visit:
