PSST…This Is Personal…

Although I don’t usually share too much personal information here on the blog, there is something I need to talk about….Digestive Issues!

What I count as one of my great blessings is good health.  But, now being in my 40s, there are a few things that pop up here and there to remind me that my body is slowly aging.  My eyesight isn’t what it used to be nor is my energy level. Digestive issues have never been a problem, but I notice that some of my favorite foods seem to bother me some. 

As I intentionally pursue a healthy lifestyle, my diet and habits are scrutinized and healthier options are always being sought out. The topic of probiotics seems to pop up in most healthy living resource topics.

Probiotics refer to the bacteria that exists in the gastrointestinal track which supports digestion and the immune system.  Probiotics are actually good bacteria that can be found in certain foods and also supplements.  Probiotics are a type of living bacteria that actually benefit your health when taken in the appropriate amounts.

The following health benefits are associated with the intake of daily doses of probiotics.
  • Enhanced immune system response
  • Reduces negative affects of taking many types of antibiotics
  • Aids in preventing and treating colon inflammation following surgery
  • Helps to prevent eczema in youth
  • Increased ability to digest food
  • Therapeutic for viral respiratory tract infections by enhancing the overall immune system
  • Reduces lactose intolerance
  • Reduces incidence of yeast infections, vaginitis and candidiasis
  • Increases ability to assimilate the nutrients from food
  • Alleviates many common digestive disorders such as constipation, diarrhea and IBS
  • Acts as a remedy for bad breath (halitosis)
  • Increases ability to synthesize vitamin B
  • Increases ability to absorb calcium
  • Promotes anti-tumor and anti-cancer activity in the body

When an opportunity arose to try a 4X Probiotic for three weeks and share about it, I decided to do it!  This product is available at Sam’s Club.

So, off we went to Sam’s:

Then, on to the Health Food Aisle and found the Probiotic:

And carried it home!

As usual, a trip to Sam’s is a treat for our family, because there is something for everybody.

Currently, I’ve been taking the Probiotics for a week and am liking what I’m feeling!!  Will share more soon!

  3. Honestly, I will be so interested in hearing about your probiotics. We always make certain to eat activia yogurt everyday which is nothing compared to what you are doing.
    Let me know, OK?
