Wellness Wednesdays: Microbiome Plus+ Heart Probiotic Review

Well, I planned on starting this on Wednesday, until I realized I scheduled another post for tomorrow already. *facepalm* In my defense, I was tired when I wrote that post on Sunday. Anyways, to kick off Wellness Wednesday, I’m going to post today. Here’s something I received to review, and best of all, a giveaway! But first, here’s a little bit about the Microbiome Plus+ Heart Probiotic I got to try. (Note: Always check with your physician before starting any supplement product and specifically Microbiome Plus. These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.

Microbiome Plus+ Heart Probiotic is a more complete heart health dietary supplement that provides the full American Heart Association daily dietary recommendation of omega-3 which may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease plus the probiotic L. reuteri NCIMB 30242, which supports normal cholesterol levels and inflammatory response.

This is both a probiotic and omega-3 supplement. Benefits:

My Review:
5 stars

I loved using this! I’m notoriously horrible about remembering to take meds, especially if I need to take them at multiple specific times, even if it’s just at meals, since I don’t always stick to a schedule (ok…I rarely stick to a schedule). However, the packaging helped with that. A week’s supply of the probiotic and Omega-3 came together in a pack and each individual pill came wrapped by itself. Not only did you have each day numbered, but there was an AM and a PM pack, making it easier to track which pills I’d taken without any effort on my part, a definite plus in my book.

After taking these for almost a month, I do feel better. My stomach hasn’t acted up as much as usual, and even when I got food poisoning, I recovered quickly. Whether that’s due to taking a probiotic, I don’t know, but I’d like to think it helped. Plus, I also liked the fact that I received both an Omega-3 and a probiotic for a dollar a day. Just $1 a day to help my heart and gut health. The benefits definitely justify the cost to me. I know there are cheaper alternatives out there, but Microbiome also has a deal going on where if you have your doctor give you a prescription for Microbiome, you get a $10 discount on it as well. And now that I've used Microbiome, I know that I'll be getting a quality product, well worth the price to me.

Not quite what you’re looking for? Microbiome not only offers the probiotic and Omega-3 for heart health, they also offer two other variations; Microbiome Plus+ Bone and Microbiome Plus+ Gastrointestinal. So there’s something for everyone to try. Taking probiotics is a great way to help improve your health, so why not give them a try?
