Growing up I was always having stomach aches-- if I ate too much it hurt, if I ate certain foods it hurt, the issues were nonstop. As an adult in my twenties, I started taking daily probiotics and the issues became farther and fewer in between. Not sure why I stopped (maybe laziness?) but it's been a few years since I've taken probiotics and yes, the stomach issues, such as bloating and discomfort, came back.
This past month I decided to put a bigger focus on my health. I'm starting up with pilates again (it's been almost an entire year since I last did pilates!) and am even branching out and trying new activities like spin. I make sure to drink water throughout the day, eat healthier and I've started taking probiotics again. Each day I take a probiotic from LoveBug Probiotics
to help keep my gut healthy and get my digestive tract back on track.
LoveBug has several types of probiotics that are ultimately designed to restore gut health by repopulating the microbiome with good-for-you bacteria. We have natural probiotics in our bodies (live bacteria and yeast) that often come from foods, such as yogurt, but sometimes it just isn't enough and that's where supplements like these can come in to help. Probiotics are especially helpful to take if you've had an infection and had to take antibiotics, which in turn may have depleted your 'good' supply of bacteria.
I have currently been taking the Here's The Skinny
probiotic once daily. This is Lovebug's general probiotic that is good for gut health and replenishing those good bacterias, can help weight-control issues, and help to restore overall energy and mood- when you feel good, you FEEL good, right?
They also offer Yeast Is A Beast
, a probiotic blend that contains cranberry extract and is specifically designed for women to promote urinary tract health and decrease bad yeast; along with probiotics for kids; and Colds Suck
, an immunity-boosting probiotic and vitamin blend.
I have found a noticeable difference in how I feel overall since starting my probiotic regimen- in my experience they do help with stomach issues and has lessened any bloating I would experience. Paired with eating healthier, and exercising, I've found that I have more energy and that 'good' feeling all over.
If you've been curious if probiotics are for you, you can find LoveBug Probiotics at online and in-stores at Target
. Be sure to consult your doctor for any health advice.
