Do you know what a probiotic is? I seriously didn’t until I had Darah and was advised by her doctor to get some for her while she was taking antibiotics.
A probiotic is good bacteria that normally lives in your intestinal tract and helps your body process everything without any trouble. Probiotics are found in yogurt with active cultures, which is what makes yogurt a really awesome food to eat on a regular basis. However, if you are sick and taking antibiotics, then the level of probiotics found in yogurt is not necessarily enough to replace what the antibiotics wiped out. That’s when a probiotic supplement can really come in handy.
In addition to being helpful during times of sickness, probiotics are also a fantastic thing to have on hand for people who suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Chron’s disease. They are also especially handy to bring with you whenever you are traveling and will be experiencing food and water that is different from what you normally eat and drink.
My family is going to be trying out Member’s Mark 4X Probiotic for the next few weeks and will be letting you know about our experience. I’m personally interested in trying it out for overall digestive health, as I don’t care too much for yogurt, personally, and so I know I’m missing out on all that good bacteria my body could use. My husband does face some digestive health problems (nothing that has been diagnosed, though), and I am very curious to see if he can tell a difference in how he feels after using this product for 2 weeks. I hope it makes a difference for him!
If you are interested in trying out Member’s Mark 4X Probiotic for your family, it is available at Sam’s Club.
