Let's take a minute to talk poop.  We are all (mostly) mommies so it's no big deal for us.  Tummy issues are no fun, especially when you are chasing around a house full of energy filled short people.  It leaves you feeling blah and lazy.  Not a pleasant situation for anyone.

I recently received Microbiome Plus Probiotic and Prebiotic to review.  I am familiar with probiotics and have taken them in the past but I had never heard of prebiotics.  I was very curious to learn about them and give it a try.

Microbiome Plus Probiotic and Prebiotic contains Lactobacillus reuteri which is known to fight off other harmful gut organisms.  There are documented studies showing L. reuteri can greatly reduce the duration of diarrhea related to the rotavirus.  It is also effective as a prophylactic in children against rotavirus.  It has also been shown to aid in intestinal and oral health, just to name a few. 

The prebiotic tablet contains scFOS, short chain fructo oligosaccharides.  Preliminary test results are amazing.  It is showing positive results in human treatments for ulcerative colitis, colon cancer, hypertension and many other conditions. 

I have heard it a million times..if your stomach is off the rest of your body will be too.  I never believed it until now.  It is completely true.  It is amazing how just a little rumbly stomach or bloating can make your entire body feel so bad. 

The Microbiome Plus Probiotic and Prebiotic includes 4 boxes with 2 sleeves in each.  Each sleeve contains 7 morning and night pills.  The probiotic pill is a small capsule, about the size of a Tylenol and the prebiotic is a little larger, about the size of a multivitamin.  I had no problems when taking the pills.  I take them each morning and night with water and wasn't able to taste them. 

It took about a week for me to begin to see any results.  For the first 3-4 days I kept forgetting to take the pills at night so I'm sure that delayed my results by a few days.  After the first week I began to notice that the rumbling and bloating were much less.  After a couple of weeks I noticed a drastic change.  My stomach felt normal again.  All of the issues were gone.  I still have some trouble with reflux when I eat spicy foods but I no longer have the daily heart burn that I was experiencing.  I have also noticed that I just feel better.
