Ever since moving back home to Houston, and experiencing it’s yo-yo weather aka 70s one day, 40s the next – I feel like my family has been on a non-stop merry-go-round of antibiotics. I was so glad our pediatrician recommended we all start taking a probiotic to offset the good bacteria that gets depleted even from a one-time usage of antibiotics. Children are especially susceptible to this, since they have a less developed immune system, leaving them even more vulnerable to infection and sickness. You may remember I started Cha Cha on a probiotic when she was just a baby. After seeing the amazing difference it made, I realized quickly that I needed to find a probiotic supplement for the rest of us to help replenish the good bacteria to support not just healthy digestion but overall immune health. Enter our hero – Probulin! We love their new probiotic supplement Total Care Probiotic for Adults and My Little Bugs™ Total Care Probiotic for Kids. So I thought I’d share how my family is protecting our gut health, thanks to Probulin, and why it’s been the perfect choice for “my little bug” ??
You Say Prebiotic, I say Probiotic
I’ll be honest, when I first started talking with friends of mine about probiotics a little over a year ago – it kinda made my head spin and my eyes cross. Just when I thought I knew what probiotics were, people started throwing out terms like prebiotics and now there’s even such a thing as postbiotics – who knew? Certainly not me, which is why I was so grateful to have learned more from Probulin about the benefits of having all three in their Total Care supplements. Let me break it down for you: Prebiotics act as food for the probiotic bacteria, and postbiotics take the unique compounds of pre and probiotics to help support a healthy digestive microbiome. Don’t worry if you’re still just as confused as before – luckily Probulin was founded by doctors and scientists far smarter than me, so I’m happy to leave all that up to them ?
¡Viva La Probiotic!
I recently learned with the launch of Probulin’s newest Total Care probiotic supplement, that it’s not just enough to take them and hope that they work. Total Care also features the MAKTrek® 3-D Probiotic Delivery System, which ensures the safe survival of the probiotic past destructive stomach acids and to the digestive tract. They refer to it as their “Seaweed Submarine” and Garrett was so tickled because they even sent him a little squishy toy version of one in our package with our supplements – of which Cha Cha quickly tried to eat ?
Bugs Are Cool
My Little Bugs™ Total Care Probiotic is similar to the adult version, but in a fun, bug-shaped chewable tablet form for kids! Since it’s intended for children ages 4+, and Garrett’s now 5, I was so happy to start him on a probiotic that will help keep his digestive tract healthy. Plus, it comes in a delicious watermelon flavor, which he kept exclaiming is “My favorite!” I also feel good giving it to him since I know Probulin only uses the finest ingredients that are Non-GMO, Wheat and Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, and free of unnecessary additives such as Magnesium Stearate artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners. Not to mention each purchase of My Little Bugs™ receives a fun set of bug stickers for the little ones!
I hope I gave you and your family a lot to think about, and you can always learn more at Probulin.com. They’re also offering 20% off both Total Care products just for my readers using code: CHTTC20. Woohoo!!
