This review is for the Microbiome Plus Gastrointestinal Probiotics L Reuteri NCIMB 30242 and Prebiotics scFOS, GI Digestive Supplements, Allergy Safe & Gluten Free for Men and Women (1 Month Supply) from Microbiome Plus+. I take a probiotic to keep my gut healthy and to keep nasty things like bloating, gas and constipation at bay. This is my first exposure to taking a system which includes both a Probiotic and Prebiotic.
Over 80% of our immune system is located in our intestines. If you don’t have healthy flora in your intestines, you are more prone to contracting illnesses, experiencing weight gain, battling seasonal and other allergies, bloating, gas and constipation. There are many reasons for keeping the gut healthy. This system is manufactured in North America, Canada to be exact. The pills are gluten free and the capsules are derived from vegetables.
This box has a 28 day supply; each pill is taken 2 times a day with meals. The prebiotic also contains fiber, which is a good addition. I staggered the pills, 1 alternated 1 pill daily for 5 days to allow my system to adjust. From there I took 1 pill a day, instead of the recommended 2. My transition was an easy one and I have not had any side effects.
I am not a fan of taking four pills daily to protect my gastrointestinal tract. It would be great if the number of pills could be reduced to two daily. I also think the manufacturer should recommend that people new to pro and prebiotics transition slowly. My system is accustomed to taking a probiotic; but it is sensitive to changes and would not have responded positively to the dramatic change. It would also be convenient for the consumer to get a larger supply rather than a 28 day supply.
