Probiotics for Better Health [Review]

Even if you eat a clean and organic diet, it is commonly known that foods today do not contain as many vitamins and nutrients as they did before when farming was not done on such a commercial scale and using so many pesticides and chemicals. Adding high quality, natural and organic supplements can be a great way to improve the function of your body. Whether dairy is part of your diet or not, taking a probiotic supplement supports your GI system and increases your immunity. Upbiotics Advanced Probiotic Blend consists of an optimized amount of 7 essential probiotic bacteria that are naturally found in the human body.

The Good
The Not So Good

Natural ingredients

No artificial additives or preservatives

Made in the USA

100 Naturals Upbiotics Advanced Probiotic Formula contains 11.5 billion organisms (at the time of manufacture). This is a higher number than most probiotic formulas. The recommended dose is 2 capsules taken daily, preferably with a meal. The capsules are the standard size and are easy to take. The probiotic formula is flavorless.

Upbiotics Advanced Probiotic Formula ingredients:
Probiotic Bacteria
   Bacillus subtilis
   Lactobacillus rhamnosus
   Lactobacillus casei
   Bifidobacterium longum
   Lactobacillus acidophilus
   Lactobacillus plantarum
   Bifidobacterium breve
Vegetable cellulose
Medium chain triglycerides

This list of ingredients is one of the simplest for probiotic supplements. Even in natural supplements, sometimes it is hard to avoid fillers that are required to make the product work or make the supplement easier to digest and get absorbed into the body. I like the simple ingredient list. Though, if you are allergic to dairy, I would contact the manufacturer to ensure dairy was not used as a medium/culture for creating the probiotic bacteria.

I have been taking two (2) capsules on an almost daily basis with a meal, as recommended. I love that there is no smell or taste. The capsules are of standard size and are easy to swallow for me.

Since I have began taking probiotic supplements, I feel like my digestion and bowel movements are regular and of a good quality. In general, I have not had any GI issues like gas, bloating, constipation or diarrhea. I do feel like taking the probiotic supplement on a regular basis has helped my GI system.

If you are looking for a high quality, natural probiotic, Upbiotics Advanced Probiotic Blend is a great addition to your diet.
