Probiotics Are A Tennagers/Everyones Best Friend

This post contains sponsored links



  I have known about probiotics for quite some time but only in the last year have I been experiencing the benefits. I use to think that the only way to get my probiotics was through yogurt, but I have since learned there are other ways like through a supplement. I have also learned that  probiotic supplements can give me way more probiotics and different types of strains. These different strains and increased numbers of the probiotics can do so much more, health wise, to my body than yogurt can do. Now there is nothing wrong with yogurt as it is a great source of protein, calcium, and some probiotics. You would just have to eat a lot of yogurt to get the same benefits that a probiotic supplement offers. I personally would rather take 1-2 easy to swallow capsules filled with 34.5 billion CFU's ( the probiotics) than probably over a gallon or more of yogurt.

  Last year when I started taking probiotic supplements it was for my gut health. Probiotics are the good guys that fight the bad guys and that brings balance to your gut which for me was a happy tummy that no longer had gas or slowness in the bathroom. I later learned that probiotics are great for the immune system so I started my younger boys on a probiotic supplement. My younger boys no longer complained of stomach aches and they did not get sick last winter. I did some further research of probiotics and read that they could help with gingivitis. My husband had almost all his teeth removed 2 years ago but was still having bacterial issues in his mouth. So I convince my husband to take a daily probiotic supplement and months later he had a good dental check up and his bacterial issues were improving. My latest research on probiotics is related to skin issues like acne and eczema. I read that probiotics can help clear up skin problems as our gut health can affect our skin. Makes perfect sense to me, it is amazing that a simple supplement filled with good bacteria can do so much.


   Now I am working on my teenager to take a daily probiotic to see if it can help clear up his acne. My teenager is frustrated that his acne cream no longer helps with those zits on his face. I gave my teen a bottle of Dr. Formulas Nexabiotic, as this one contains 23 probiotic strains, to see if it could help with his skin. My thinking is more of the "good guys" would help get his skin looking better as it helps restore his digestive balance. I like that these delayed-released capsules are designed to survive the harsh stomach acid and make it into the gut  I realize it could take 2 to 6 weeks of a daily probiotic supplement to see improvement in his skin. I am very hopeful that this probiotic supplement is going to help my teens acne as my friend just told me about how probiotics helped her son with his eczema. Her son has been taking a probiotic supplement for two weeks and his eczema is beginning to clear up.

  I want to show you before and after photos of my teen's face but he won't let me take any pictures of his face. I am just happy that my teen is willing to give probiotics a try. I will let you know later after he takes them for a while if they helped with his acne. I love how probiotics are good for all ages. Provita Labs even makes supplements for kids and babies.

  4. I don't take a probiotic but I probably should. I sometimes give Toddler Spawn a probiotic when I know she hasn't had enough through food. I do have apple cider vinegar pills that I take daily, which I think have helped regulate my blood sugar a little.

  14. I need to start taking my probiotics again. I am horrible about remembering to take them daily. They are also helpful for kids. I need to find some for my daughter again especially after her surgery (she had a section of her colon removed). I will look into these for her.
