Love Your Tummy with Probiotics #DigestiveHealth

It has been almost three months since I first started taking probiotics. At first I did not notice a huge change, however now I have noticed a large change. I am less bloated, more regular and made me feel great! Before taking probiotics I would try and get my dose of probiotics in yogurt, however it was just not enough.

The intestinal tract is cleaned by probiotics. They go under the layer of crud on the intestinal walls, attach themselves and dislodge the accumulated decay. This waste is then flushed out naturally. Probiotics also produce many important enzymes and increase the availability of vitamins and nutrients, especially Vitamin B, Vitamin K, lactase, fatty acids and calcium.

Another one of the benefits of probiotics is that the bacteria strengthen the immune system. Because of this support to the immune system, they have been used in alleviating allergies and chronic fatigue syndrome.

I have been taking the 4x Probiotic Digestive Care Supplement. I love that it comes in packages that have the date labeled on them. Being a Mom of three children all who take supplements I normally can never remember if I have taken my supplements for the day. With the easily labeled packaging I always know if I have taken my probiotic or not.

There are hundreds of "good bacteria," like acidophilus, that not only help us achieve better health but are necessary for us to survive and thrive!

Now that I am taking my probiotics daily and have a great system to remember to take care of myself I am on the road to a healthy digestive system. As I continue to take probiotics my intestinal health will continue to increase.  

 The probiotics will facilitate better nutrient absorption, and as my internal healing increases the benefits of probiotics may be seen externally as well. At this stage of my probiotic therapy my skin conditions have also begun to improve.

    Wow! You just opened my eyes with this post! Now I'm for sure going to start taking probiotics!!!

  2. They really are more important than I realized!

  4. That's cool that you've found probiotics to be so beneficial! I'm really curious to see how it goes for me!

  5. I love the tummy shot :) And that each pill is in a separate compartment for the day? Genuis.

  6. That is genius packaging but most probiotics should be refrigerated. Maybe you are refrigerating it?

    I have to say that the best one out there right now is VSL#3 and they are now selling it in Costco for slightly cheaper than what it is online.

    Being diagnosed with Crohn's and having had candida problems in the past, VSL#3 is awesome!

  7. I hope you all won't mind me posting this, but the probiotic I take is one that was developed by a practicing GI doc. It's called @Endomune. I actually think it may have saved my mom from a longer more excruciating bout with CDiff. After researching it I fell in love with the product and use it myself. Is the highest quality and has all the necessary bacteria. Helps with all manner of GI issues: IBS, constipation, diarrhea, an more
