Taking Care of Body From Inside Out #ad

I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided.

I started having problems with my stomach a few years ago. At first, I just learned to deal with it, but eventually it got to the point where I could no longer take the pain and discomfort. I decided to visit my family doctor. He put me on medication for GERD. I took the medicine for a while, but didn’t really notice a difference. After several visits to various doctors with no real change, I decided to see a surgeon. Many people had told me that their gallbladder caused the pain and symptoms I was experiencing and I just wanted to have my gallbladder tested. Sure enough, my gallbladder failed the test and the surgeon scheduled me for surgery. I was relieved, thinking that I would soon be rid of all of the complications. Everyone I talked to said that they had immediate relief and they felt like a new person once their gallbladder was gone. I was looking forward to some normalcy.

After the removal of my gallbladder I felt okay for a few months (although I was really watching what I was eating due to having to now use the bathroom a LOT). I felt like the only reason I wasn’t feeling horrible was because I was getting rid of everything I ate almost immediately after eating. This was no way to live. There had to be another way. So, for the last 2 years I have been trying to figure out what I can do to feel normal again. My doctors ran a bunch of different tests and everything came back fine, so I was left on my own to figure it out.

There was one thing they never mentioned….the one thing that could really make a difference, and that was taking probiotics and taking care of my gut. Now that I no longer had a gallbladder, it was more important than ever that I take care of my stomach.

Let’s talk about about Probiotics for a minute.

What are Probiotics?

They are beneficial microorganisms that reside on and within the body. The primary role of the probiotics is to assist with the digestion and utilization of nutrients from your diet and to promote gut motility. They can also synthesize some nutrients, such as B vitamins and vitamin K. They are also important for immune system development an support normal immune system function by modulating the activity of specific immune system cells and maintaining normal barrier function, as well as through other aspects of immune function. They also play a role in protecting the delicate tissues of the gut, where a lot of the immune system activity takes place.

Not only do they help your body get what it needs, but probiotics also help your body get rid of what it doesn’t need, such as metabolic waste materials that are a normal byproduct of metabolism.

I recently started taking NOW vitamins and the jury is in….I feel SO much better! Okay, I’m not going to lie, it’s only been about a month since I started taking the vitamins, but I can already fee the difference! Why didn’t my doctors simply put me on a good probiotic a long time ago? I feel like I wasted a lot of time trying to figure my body out, trying new medicications from Gas X to cleanses and GERD pills. I will be a little more wise and do a little more research myself the next time I’m having issues. Don’t get me wrong, my doctors are great and they did rule a lot of things out, however I want to get my point across that vitamins can really make a world of difference in your body.

I am currently taking NOW Women’s Probiotic 20 Billion. It has been specifically formulated using three clinically tested probiotic strains to support women’s health through every stage of life. This product features L. rhamnosus HN001 and L. acidophilus La-14 which have been shown to colonize the vaginal tract and help to maintain healthy vaginal pH when taken orally.* HN019 supports GI regularity and reduces occasional gas and bloating (this was so important to me!) These specialized strains also support healthy, balanced immune system function in women of all ages.

I should mention that NOW is one of the very few supplement companies that is using technology to genetically verify their probiotics. They are using DNA-fingerprinting technology to guarantee the identity, potency, and purity of the bacterial strains used in the probiotic products, as well as help identify potential bacterial contaminants prior to production. The Women’s Probiotic has 20 billion Colony-Forming Units (CFU) and has a guaranteed potency. NOW Women’s Probiotic 20 Billion is vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free. The suggested retail price is $33.99.

NOW’s extensive line of 1400 products, most of which are non-GMO, includes dietary supplements, health and beauty products, essential oils, healthy foods, sports nutrition, and pet supplements.

I could keep going on about how I love the products, but I really would like to invite you to try them for yourself. Give it a month and see how much better you are feeling.

  1. Probiotics are finally becoming popular and people are learning more and more how they work. Good to know that there are things we can purchase to help with any health problems.

  2. Jennifer G says:

    I take a daily probiotic to help treat my IBS symptoms and it has made SUCH a different in my way of life.

  3. Jennifer Van Huss says:

    Probiotics are so important for you! I never realized how much so until I went to a seminar! Now I don’t go a day without them!! They improve all aspects of life.

  4. This is actually really good to know!! My stomach gets so upset so easily so this would be ideal… I try to get in probiotics through the brand of yogurt that I eat. I should look into these supplements.

  5. Victoria Heckstall says:

    It’s my first time to heard this and it sounds interesting! I will look into this probiotics and try it.

  6. This is no lie!! SO TRUE Probiotics are AMAZING a miracle! My daughter had many of the issues and symptoms you had and also had a gall bladder study, surgery, medication etc and so on! It was not until we got her on probiotics that she was better!

  7. Michelle Waller says:

    This looks like a pretty amazing set of products. I really need to start taking a probiotic.

  8. These sound like they are great products to take for your condition. I have noticed I have to eat better now that I am getting older and my body does not respond the way it use to where junk food was concerned.

  9. These sound like some interesting products. As women, it’s so important to take care of our bodies from the inside out.

  10. I haven’t tried using a probiotic. Both my husband and I suffer from acid reflux. We have to take Zantac for it.

  11. I really enjoy the NOW brand. This is good info I didnt know these products are on the market.

  12. A few weeks ago everyone in my kids playgrouo got sick except 2 families. Both families swore by probiotics. I kept saying that I was going to order some for the kids and myself but never did. Thanks for the reminder.

  13. Mary Edwards says:

    I didn’t know about probiotics until last year. We got the flu in our house and the recovery was long and hard. Probiotics was suggested and they were GREAT

  14. Probiotics are essential things for your digestive system anyway, gallbladder or no. It is so important to be taking them in some form, whether through live cultures or taking a pill.

  15. I take probiotics every day, but I use a different brand. The Now brand is new to me. I will check this out.

  16. Mine would be my teeth. I’ve always had beautiful teeth growing up. I took that for granted by not getting check-ups and eating too many sweets.

  17. Tiara Wilson says:

    Wow. I do not know much about probiotics, however they seem to be able to help a ton of people. I should really do more research because I have some issues that I need to take care of from inside.

  18. Michelle says:

    I really need to start on probiotics. I hear so many good things about taking them and have yet to jump on board. I’m convinced, I have actually had gallbladder problems years ago. Luckily it passed (for now), but I am terrified of having issues again.

  19. I’ve tried this brand.. love the quality! I also take probiotic on daily basis!

  20. Probiotics are so good for you! The skincare line that I use is filled with them.
