We all go and buy vitamins and try to eat healthy. But when our body can not process it right doesn`t matter what you take in. Before reading a lot about probiotics (I also talked to doctors) I kept going and buying this vitamin that mineral too. To be honest I was hardly seeing any difference with my overall health, the only difference it made was my budget!
During the time that I was living overseas, for almost a year I had Yakult everyday and it worked really good. It was helping me big time with my IBS and I wasn`t having a lot of trouble after meals :)
I know Yakult is also sold here in the States but I wanted to go for something a little better knowing that I had more choices. I went to Sprouts and by the help of a very nice, knowledgeable girl working at the vitamin section, I did end up with buying RAW Probiotics. The one I bought has 85 billion live cultures and 32 probiotic strains. This one has no binders, fillers or carriers either. I was lucky that day cause this product was on sale, if it wasn`t I don`t think I would go and pay 50$. However, it has been two weeks that I have been using it and I don`t feel bloated after meals and meanwhile my husband got some virus from someone at work and was sick for almost a week, I had very very slight symptoms and got over it almost in a day! This is something that probiotics promote. Your immune system gets stronger and you get over things pretty quick. Well at least this is how it has been working for me. Long story short this product seems to be the real thing and if you are ok to use these type of supplements give this one a try. Oh and don`t forget try finding stores that gives you coupons or offers price cuts on this brand. I wish I was able to convince my hubby for taking these too, he freaks out every time he sees that `live cultures` statement on the box, lol :)
