Okay, let’s talk about something you probably don’t want to talk about – constipation. To be honest I’ve always had a constipation problem. Ever since I can remember I would maybe go once a week. You didn’t want to know that did you?
As I got older I found out it was mostly due to my lack of water intake. I barely drink anything unless I think about. I just don’t get that thirsty unless I’m working up a sweat. When I was in school I would go all day without peeing and for the longest time thought it was funny how much my husband peed. I thought he was the weird one but it turns out I am. When I concentrate on drinking the recommended amount of water I pee a ton. Go figure.
Once I became an adult every now and then I would take a laxative to get things moving. Not the best plan but it worked.
I wanted to kick the laxative and do a more healthy alternative. So I …
- Drank a lot of water (64 ounces)
- Increased my fiber intake (I like fiber powder and fiber one bars)
- Took a probiotic (I talked to my grandma about my “issues” and she suggest taking one)
- Exercised (It gets other things moving too if you know what I mean)
Probiotics are usually live bacterial organisms that can help the bacteria balance in the intestines and challenge the immune system. For the last few weeks I have been taking Alice Foods Bifidus Best Advanced Probiotic Supplement.
Alice Foods says:
Our Bifidus Best Advanced Probiotic formula is made with only the highest quality ingredients and was designed to promote digestive system wellness, support the body’s internal microbial balance for digestive tract health and improve overall immune system health.
Each capsule of Bifidus Best Advanced Probiotic contains 5.06 billion CFU (colony forming units). CFU describe the number of active, live organisms instead of the number of all the bacteria – dead, inactive and alive – in a laboratory sample. Only the viable organisms are considered to be probiotics. “Viable” means that the microbes are capable of living under the proper circumstances.
Probiotics containing more than 5.06 billion CFU per serving are considered new generation, high dose products. They are more potent, more effective than the old generation of probiotics (containing less than 1 billion CFU per serving).
Bifidus Best Advanced Probiotic formula also has acid-resistant strains and a new delivery technology which protects the strains in stomach acid – so the difference is noticed very quickly. Customers start feeling the effect in a short time – regularity is restored and unpleasant symptoms subside.
I have been taking two Bifidus Best Advanced Probiotic every day for the past few weeks and have noticed a good change. I have been more regular since taking these supplements but I also have changed my water and fiber intake drastically. This has made it difficult for me to know what has benefited me the most. I like to think this combination including the probiotics has helped me so I’m going to continue doing them all.
I would recommend adding Alice Foods Bifidus Best Advanced Probiotic Supplement to your constipation fighting arsenal and get things going!
