A Probiotic That Combats Bloat Head On, According To mbg Reviews*
About 15 to 30% of the U.S. population has reportedly experienced bloating1. That's almost 100 million Americans. It's about time to get to the root causes of bloat, as the first step to finding an effective remedy.
"For most, the reason for bloating is too much intestinal gas, and it can be caused by a number of things," board-certified internist Vincent Pedre, M.D., previously told mbg. One common culprit is an imbalance of bacteria in the gut microbiome, when we don't have enough good microbial "bugs."
"Your gut contains about 500 to 1,000 species of bacteria," he says. "And the tiniest shifts in the relative predominance of these bacteria can affect how your gut works2." One helpful way to balance that bacteria is by taking a high-quality probiotic, which is one reason mindbodygreen developed probiotic+.*
With four targeted and scientifically researched strains (Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07, Bifidobacterium lactis B420, Bifidobacterium lactis HN019, and Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM) aimed at beating bloat and supporting other key facets of gut health, probiotic+ has proved effective for many mbg reviewers.* But don't take our word for it, here's what users have to say:
"I have had far fewer bloating days/events."*
"In general I have had far fewer bloating days/events, although I've still had some, and in general my stomach is flatter and less likely to disrupt my day!*"
"After just a few days of taking probiotic+, I noticed what a positive difference it was making."*
"Because I am someone who is always on the go, being bloated was so uncomfortable. After just a few days of taking probiotic+, I noticed what a positive difference it was making—this product has become a constant in my life."*
"No bloating or discomfort."*
"Excellent in producing a regular elimination, with no bloating or discomfort."*
"It really improved my gut health."*
"Love this; sometimes I forget to take it 30 minutes before I eat, but it has really improved my gut health and digestion. And no bloating or discomfort at all! Thank you."*
"My bloat began to dissipate in days."*
"So I went into this skeptical. After two days, my overall bloat began to dissipate. After about a week, I became more 'regular.'"*
"It made such a difference."*
"I really wondered if this was going to make a difference—yet gradually it has. It has corrected the gas and bloating."*
