Whether you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome or persistent bloating, there are ways to manage your symptoms such as taking probiotics, prebiotics, fermented foods like kimchi, or avoiding trigger meals. Alternatively, some beverages—such as kombuchas—can also do wonders for your gut. To help with your healthy belly journey, we’ve compiled a list of locally-made beverage brands that can help bring balance to your tummy one sip at a time.

Known for its oh-so-refreshing natural sodas, The Tapping Tapir has recently introduced its GutC prebiotic drinks. Available in two flavours—grape and peach—these sodas aim to promote a healthy microbiome in your belly with its key ingredient: a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. On top of supporting your gut, they also help boost your immunity with the natural vitamins found in the fruits used. Made using Kyoho grapes and ripe peaches respectively, the drinks are deliciously fruity and crisp—great for beating the heat! Opt for its mix pack to get the best of both worlds in your purchase.
