getting healthy with probiotics #digestivehealth #cbias

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 10:34 AM
Have you noticed I'm on a big health kick recently? Well I am. A while ago I noticed I wasn't feeling so hot, always tired, you know. So I started taking a multivitamin, a supplement (if you read my post yesterday) and now I started a probiotic supplement.

It's from Sam's Club and it's called Member's Mark 4X Probiotic. I'm super excited to start this probiotic because digestive issues have always been something I have. Probiotics are good bacteria that can even be found in yogurt. I know that as we age the number of microflora is reduced as well as stress and diet. So adding more Bifidobacteria is always a good thing.

When I say "digestive health" I'm sure you think, "I dont need to take probiotics... I can go to the bathroom just fine." Well those types of tummy troubles aren't the only thing that probiotics help. There are nerves in your stomach that are connected to your brain. So when you're nervous and get that butterfly feeling or feel sick to your stomach when stress happens? Those issues have to do with digestive health too and I strongly believe probiotics can help minimize some of those feelings.

Each box of Member's Mark 4x is a 3 month supply but I'll be updating you in about 2 weeks with my review on how I have been feeling!
