As I have blogged about before, I am a big fan of probiotics. When I have been on an antibiotic in the past, I have taken probiotics to help restore the good bacteria in my body. Probiotics are also recommended for those with digestive issues to help regulate digestion and for digestive system balance. I recommend these fairly often at the nursing home that I work at for my patients. Probiotics can not only help you when you are sick but can also help keep you healthy.
When I was pregnant, I took probiotics regularly or made sure that I ate probiotic rich yogurt often. This winter, to help stay healthy, I will continue with probiotics. My husband can try out this particular one that I was sent to review because it is not intended for nursing mothers so I cannot take it.
These Microbiome Plus+ Gastrointestinal probiotic is a complete probiotic for GI health. It provides prebiotic fiber and probiotics to maintain healthy gut bacteria and for digestive function. I recently got a pretty bad cold (which I am still fighting 2 weeks later) and think that if I took probiotics, I may have been more likely to fight off this cold. In the past when I was on probiotics, I have stayed healthy.
This probiotic comes in the form of a pill that is take with meals twice per day. It comes in a pack that lasts for 7 days and then you start another pack. I purchased mine off of Amazon.com.
The giveaway will be for a one month supply of Microbiome Plus+ GI Probiotics.
