Come one, everyone is doing it!
Taking probiotics that is. I'm sure we've all heard about the importance of probiotics and having a healthy, good bacteria inside our bodies.
Your gut bacteria really does affect your over all health. Apparently Hippocrates said that "All Disease Being in the Gut." Or so he is said as saying. The point is, a healthy gut is an important part of a healthy person.
We all know that good bacteria are good and bad bacteria are bad. And that it's important to make sure you have lots of good bacteria. This is especially true for anyone who has had a round or two or three of antibiotics...which is just about everyone at some point.
Plus, Harvard says that probiotics are good, so it must be true.
I've been a big fan of probiotics for awhile, which is why I jumped at the chance to try out UP4 Adult Cubes.
These probiotics contain two very important strains.
- Lactobacilis acidophilis DDS-1 (this one is trademarked by the UP4 company).
- Bifidobacterium lactis.
It's important to take different strains of probiotics...especially after a round of antibiotics. It's called diversifying your gut bacteria. Everyone thinks of L. acidophilis when they think of probiotics, but there are actually several strains out there, so having more than one in a supplement is a very good thing.
So, I was pretty excited to try out these probiotics.
They taste like candy. Seriously...that's the first thing you need to know about them. They taste like candy. You will actually look forward to taking your vitamins.
The second thing is that they do seem to make a difference. Since taking them, my digestion seems a bit happier.
The third thing you need to know is that the company is great. Not only do they have adult probiotics, but they have children's probiotics, women's probiotics, senior probiotics, junior probiotic powder (perfect for babies and little kids) and even a green supplement containing spirulina. I want to try that one next.
The company is also very generous. They sent me TWO boxes of UP4 Adult Cubes. One for me, and one for you.
