Gut health... it's such a common topic these days. Personally, I have found so much information that it sometimes feels overwhelming. But it is pretty common belief that probiotics are a good place to start.
I have used other NOW products in the past and compared them to other brands only to discover that NOW is superior. So I trust the NOW brand and was glad to review their Women's Probiotic 20 Billion. This is a gelatin capsule that is vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free. It contains 20 billion CFU (colony-forming units) of various strains of beneficial bacteria. NOW guarantees the potency of their product.
This probiotic contains some unique strains or bacteria. Some of them may help maintain healthy pH of the girly parts, and others contribute to healthy immune system function in pregnant and nursing women, as well as women of all ages.
NOW uses a unique DNA fingerprinting technology to identify and verify potency and purity of the bacteria used in this supplement. I like that they are ensuring their product is what they say it is.
NOW included some booklets with my samples that were informative about the purposes of probiotics and what they can do for women. I found the NOW Guide to Women's Wellness is also posted on their website. Take a look at it, they have information for various life stages! I learned some new things when I read it.
NOW sent some of their Berry Dophilous Kids probiotics for my children to try. These little chewables have 10 probiotic strauns and 2 billion CFU per tablet. They are a tasty berry flavor, and are colored with beet powder and sweetened with xylitol and sorbitol. My kids enjoy taking these and I like knowing that they are helping with immune and gut health.
I also received a bottle of Super Enzymes. These little capsules can be taken by adults with every meal and help optimize the breakdown of fats, carbs, and protein. I have read that taking enzymes helps the digestive system work more efficiently to digest a meal, and I felt this was true when I took them.
You can purchase Women's Probiotic 20 Billion from a natural healthfood store near you, amazon,com, iherb.com, and now-2-u.com. To find where they are available near you visit the NOW website for a list of locations.
