It’s been just shy of two weeks and I am happy to report that I am in LOVE with Member’s Mark 4X Probiotics. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was hopeful my nervous tummy would be a thing of the past. What I wasn’t as confident about going in were my sinus issues. When you’re taking behind the counter sinus medications on daily basis you pretty much assume that is going to be a regular part of your life.
I want you to know that I really put these pills to the test. Your diet is really the basis of your digestive health and my diet was all over the place these last two weeks. I started taking them immediately after my birthday weekend-which meant after enjoying two different cakes, ice cream and two chocolate pies. (No, I didn’t eat all of these by myself-I shared!) On the third day of taking the probiotics I did have a minor tummy ache. Based on what I had been eating I wasn’t surprised, and it really wasn’t as bad as it would have normally been. But there was something else I noticed on the third day-my skin looked amazing! Was it a coincidence or was it the probiotics? I’m not sure but my skin was glowing!
Seven days in to my probiotic journey and I woke up with another tummy ache. This one can be put solely on my shoulders. I had decided to have a pint of mint fudge ice cream before bed. A pint of ice cream before bed is never a good idea, but especially not for me since I’m lactose intolerant. I can have small amounts of dairy but I usually know my limits. Then it occurred to me just how good I had been feeling. I normally would have been aware enough of my dairy issues to know when to stop-but I was feeling so great I overdid it. And just like with my first tummy ache, it was much better than it would have been had I eaten a pint of ice cream before I started taking probiotics.
A little over a week into this experiment and I noticed something else. I hadn’t taken a single pill for my sinuses. I had gone from taking something almost daily to taking nothing! I could not be happier.
I am officially a believer in the effects of probiotics. Other than two smaller than normal tummy aches (that were totally my fault) I was feeling great!
