For those of you that don’t know, I am pretty consistent with my probiotic intake, so when Moms Meet contacted me with the opportunity to try Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics, I was super excited to check them out and give an unbiased review. I’m happy to say that this product is pretty amazing. Here are some great qualities about these awesome probiotics.
What are Probiotics?
Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic is designed to support optimal intestinal health. As many of you know, probiotics are often recommended as a way to support gut health. Dr. Ohhira’s probiotic offers three elements which are prebiotics (in the form of whole foods) probiotics (made from live cultures) and postbiotics (metabolites with a three year fermentation process.) Probiotics have been proven to help with a variety of intestinal issues. Because gut health is at the core of our well-being, introducing a probiotic can have significant effects on mood and energy as well. Lastly, consistent use of probiotics can have a positive effect on your immune system. Yes, you need these in your life.
Why Dr. Ohhira’s?
So what makes this brand so great? Dr. Ohhira’s is made from whole foods and never created in a lab. Through their use of whole foods, you can feel confident that you are getting the most natural supplement possible. There are no chemicals or preservatives to worry about and the product is also 100% vegetarian. If you are worried about allergens, these probiotics are both gluten and dairy free and free from fish, tree nuts, peanuts and soy allergens. I was also excited to see that the product was non-GMO, as we always look for non-GMO products when we shop. The product has also earned seven “Best of Supplement” awards.
My personal Experience:
Since probiotics are not new to me, I jumped right in with the recommended two capsules per day. For the first few days I didn’t notice anything different, but by the end of the first week I saw some changes. I found that I was sleeping more soundly and had a bit more energy upon waking. I also noticed a reduction in headaches, which sold me immediately. Since it is recommend that you take them on an empty stomach, I was a little worried. Some supplements I have used can be tricky on an empty stomach, yet I had no problem even after taking the capsule on the first day. My husband also tried the supplements and said he felt a positive change in his digestion and sinuses. Overall, we both felt that the product was easy on the digestive tract and did not have any funky side effects.
If you are thinking about trying a probiotioc, I highly recommend these. Since they are so natural and gentle on the system, it’s a great introduction to the world of probiotics. Your immune and digestive systems will thank you!
