A few years ago, my health was in a pretty good place. I’d started paying closer attention to what I was eating and I had my sugar habit pretty well under control. I was drinking water more than anything else, and I lost a lot of weight. Then I got pregnant with my now 2-year-old, and I fell off my new lifestyle. I got back in the habit of eating whatever I wanted whenever the mood struck me. Then I wondered: “What can you expect in your 5 month pregnancy?” Now, I’m finally ready to start taking better care of myself again. So when I got an opportunity to try Nature Made Probiotics, I figured I’d use it to jumpstart my renewed commitment to wellness.
So why try a probiotic? And why Nature Made? Well, Nature Made® is the #1 pharmacist recommended brand for many key dietary supplement categories*. It’s a brand my family and I have used for years for many of our vitamin, mineral, and supplement needs and bridge nutritional gaps, so it’s a name we trust. So it was easy for me to be sold on the idea of trying a new product category.
As to the first question? Well, I’ve been interested in trying probiotics for years. I’m no stranger to digestive issues, and I love the idea that a simple, daily supplement can help me feel healthier in a way that will be noticeable on a daily basis. And Nature Made® Probiotics: Nature Made® Advanced Dual Action Probiotic has been clinically studied and provides dual support to both your small and large intestine for comprehensive coverage to help support digestive balance and healthy gut flora.† All that to say it is designed to make my gut feel a lot better than it has been in recent years.
I’ve been taking the probiotic for a few days now — two pills a day as recommended — and my husband has even joined me in my efforts. I have to say that I’ve already noticed a difference. I feel less bloated at the end of the day, and just generally lighter. I am sincerely hoping that with continued use, my experience will improve further.
Feeling better in this way has encouraged me to try feeling better in other ways as well. I’ve begun paying more attention to what I’m eating and when. I’ve started drinking more water. I’d be lying if I said I started working out again, but let’s just say that’s at the top of my to-do list as well. Wish me luck.
