member's mark 4x probiotic challenge results

remember when i bought these at sam's club?
it's been about 2 weeks since i started using these, and i'm starting to feel like a new woman.  usually, this time of day (after supper), i would start to feel uncomfortable and bloated.  some nights, i felt uncomfortable just sitting on the couch.  i could hardly wait to crawl into bed to relieve some of my agony.  usually by morning things were better (still wonder what happens during the night--thankfully bill hasn't complained...yet!), but by evening i would start the whole cycle over again.

since taking the 4x probiotic tablets, i have been more "regular" and felt better physically overall.  i forgot to take the pill a couple days, and i could tell the difference.

i am forgetful when it comes to taking pills so i really appreciated that the pills were labeled with the days of the week.  sometimes i can't even remember whether i already took one or not (that's what sleep deprivation will do to you).  thanks to the handy labeling, i always knew which pill went with which day.

i was also a little worried about the size of the pill.  i'm not a very great pill taker (as you can tell from my forgetfulness).  i was afraid i would have to choke down some giant pill that would make me feel like gagging every time i took it.  as you can (hopefully) tell from the picture, the pills aren't abnormally large; they go down very easy with a swallow of water.

i had committed myself to a two-week trial of the pills just to see what would happen. i think it is now pretty clear to me that i feel better and "work" better when i take a probiotic pill each day.  this is definitely a practice i would like to maintain long-term.

i have been compensated for this post (and the previous one) as part of a social shopper insights study for collective bias and mamabzz. regardless, the thoughts and opinions expressed here are purely my own.
