My Probiotics Journey

A special thanks to LoveBug Probiotics for sponsoring Today's conversation and for allowing me to be their ambassador!
The first time I noticed any food sensitivities was the fall of 2013 (right after doing Medifast). I had lost a ton of weight with that program, but I started having weird symptoms such as food sensitivities when I had grains and some highly acidic fruits.

The thought that I had done permanent damage to my body terrified me! And, I wasn't sure how to undo the damage. Plus, I noticed that I felt sick all of the time, with stomach aches, constant colds, and excessive weight gain. My immune system was struggling!

I decided to take my health in my own hands, and went in search of medical books to help me understand what was going on in my body. I read about the importance of the immune system, and how 80% of it resides in our digestive tract. So, if I wanted to regain my health, I had to start by having a healthy gut!  
Soon after, I started changing my diet by adding more nutrient dense, wholesome foods, and by removing all the triggers. I started religiously taking my multivitamins to try and replenish my poorly depleted body, but it wasn't enough.
I also needed to take a probiotic supplement, which replenished beneficial bacteria for optimal digestive and immune health. See, probiotics are the bacteria that line your digestive tract and support your body’s ability to absorb nutrients and fight infection. I’ve used many different varieties of probiotics over the years, but I am absolutely in love with my LoveBug Probiotics!

LoveBug Probiotics has a wide variety of products for tackling all of life's annoying and inconvenient aches and pains in life. They’re truly unique; made to be 15x more effective then the average capsule probiotics, contain superior strains for optimal benefit, and contain no allergens or preservatives.

Here are the ones I've used and have in my medicine cabinet...

Here's the Skinny is formulated for digestive help. It can help with a myriad of stomach issues from digestions and metabolism to leaky gut and constipation. It also helps provide a healthy, thriving gut full of good bacteria, which is the foundation of a healthy lifestyle. 

Colds Suck helps to fight of colds. So, now you don't have to just endure them!

Yeast is a Beast helps to fight off yeast infections and urinary tract infections.
The results have been amazing! I'm back to feeling like myself again and my digestive systems & immune system has continued to improve.
I discovered LoveBug Probiotics which uses a patented manufacturing process called BIO-tract® delivery technology to ensure as many organisms reach your digestive tract as possible, for the greatest benefit to your health. Each supplement consists of a proprietary probiotic blend, with every strain selected for its specialized health benefits. 

I am so grateful to have found something to help me feel healthier and stronger, and allow me to get back to enjoying life again!
