With the holidays already around the corner and sweets at an arm’s reach, keeping your gut health in check can fall by the wayside.

One company has a fix for that.

Smoothie King announced the release date for its new gut health smoothies. 

The brand announced that the new line of smoothies will include prebiotics, fiber and 40 billion colony-forming units of probiotics — ultimately helping with gut health.

Smoothie King’s product development scientist Amanda Daily told Fox News Digital that gut health plays a vital role in overall health. 

"Our gut is home to a diverse array of microorganisms, many of which are good bacteria that play a vital role in our metabolism and health," she said.

Combined with fiber, the digestive system will become enhanced — helping to improve gut health, she said.

"This, in turn, can help relieve gas, bloating and discomfort as well as support the immune system."

Daily said the smoothies provide a way to get those nutrients while also acting as a healthy pick-me-up. 

If customers would rather not try the new flavors, they can also add the gut health enhancer to any smoothie on the company's menu.
