Let’s be honest. We don’t always take care of ourselves. We don’t get enough sleep (as I type this it is rather late), we don’t eat well, we run ourselves ragged, and then wonder why we feel awful and get sick so easily. Ladies, we have to care for ourselves in order to care for our family. Some of that care can be done through good supplementation.

Good supplements can make a significant difference in health. (Please make sure before adding any supplements, changing your diet, or changing your exercise program to check with your personal doctor. This is not to be considered medical advice.) My doctor has prescribed several for me over the years and one she always insists I take is a probiotic. Why?
Stress, changes in diet, chlorine in water, illness, etc. can all alter the healthy bacteria balance in your gut. The SAD (standard American diet) is high in carbs, salt, sugar and low in essential fatty acids, fiber, veggies for nutrients, and leads to a gut ripe for bad bacteria and yeast overgrowth.
While probiotics are not a cure-all by any means, adding in good bacteria to your intestinal flora is a great way to stay healthy and take care of yourself so you can take care of your family.
NOW has a fantastic new probiotic formulated for women’s health. After having used it for a few weeks, I can definitely tell I suffer less bloating which is a big deal since my doctor has prescribed an optimal ketogenic diet and any time I change my diet I end up with a lot of bloating and discomfort. Not having to deal with that on top of learning how to measure and track everything is awesome!
The details of NOW Women’s probiotic supplement:
Women’s Probiotic has been specially formulated using three clinically tested probiotic strains to support women’s health through every stage of life. This product features L. rhamnosus HN001 and L. acidophilus La-14, which have been shown to colonize the vaginal tract and help to maintain healthy vaginal pH when taken orally. Both the B. lactis HN019 and HN001 strains may help to support healthy immune system function in pregnant and nursing women. HN019 also supports GI regularity and reduces occasional gas and bloating. These specialized strains also support healthy, balanced immune system function in women of all ages.
