5 People Who Were Very Skeptical About Probiotics, Until Trying This Product
"Probiotic" is a pretty big buzzword in the health and well-being world, and rightly so. These good bugs (found in food and supplements) help maintain balance in the microbiome, therefore supporting overall gut health.* Given functional medicine experts consider the gut to be the center of health, supporting this system is key to overall well-being (think smoother digestion, immune support, etc.).*
That's why mbg decided to develop probiotic+, a supplement aimed to not only promote overall gut health but also specifically help ease bloating and gas, plus aid healthy digestion.* It features four clinically researched, targeted probiotic strains, which strategically work together to support healthy elimination and lessen bloating, among other benefits.*
However, if you're skeptical about the impact of probiotics, you're certainly not alone. Below, we've roundup up a few mbg reviews that shared apprehensions about trying the supplement—but had a change of heart after experiencing some positive results.
"I was skeptical ... then my overall bloat began to dissipate."*
"So I went into this skeptical. After two days, my overall bloat began to dissipate. After about a week, I became more "regular." I've also recently been taking a second probiotic if I eat unhealthy...like if I have some pizza or some french fries...just something that makes me feel full. I'll take one of these, and about 20 minutes later, things start happening to create relief."*
"I wondered if it would work ... then it eased gas and bloating."*
"I really wondered if this was going to make a difference—yet gradually it has. It has corrected the gas, bloating, sense of 'dis-ease' in my gut and also corrected my appetite. Interestingly, fewer cravings, and I feel more satisfied after I eat. You have to take it for at least two months to see the effects; though they start after two to three weeks, the full effect is slower."*
"I thought it would not do what it says...but I was mistaken. These changed my life."*
"I don't see myself ever without these. I have struggled with regularity and bloating forever. I have a gluten sensitivity and thought it was due to that. But even without eating gluten, I wasn't really that bloated, however still had other symptoms. It takes about two weeks to have these in your system, and then your life changes. I really thought I would order the first month and, like with everything else, it would not do what it says, at least for me. But I was mistaken, and they really changed my life; thank you."*
"I used to just take probiotics because they were good for me. But with probiotic+, I noticed real changes."*
"I've been taking probiotics for about five years and never really noticed a real difference in the way I looked or felt. I just took them because I knew they were 'good for me.' I started taking probiotic+ at the beginning of February, and a week in, I started noticing a real difference in the way I felt (less bloated and gassy, TMI but true). Three weeks in, I noticed real changes in my digestion. If you have digestive needs, this is the probiotic for you. I am now on their auto-order program!"*
"I was hesitant, but I'm so happy I tried them!"*
"I was hesitant to purchase the probiotics from mindbodygreen since they are relatively new to the market. After reading all of the positive reviews, I decided to try them. I have been taking them for 30 days, and I've noticed a difference in my skin and digestion! I am so happy I tried them! I look forward to trying more of their products."*
