I've been switching off and on between Extra Care 30 Billion and Women’s Care 25 Billion for several weeks. The former is said to " help relieve digestive issues such as occasional gas, bloating, constipation and irritable bowel" and the latter to "help prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and yeast and support optimal vaginal and urinary tract health". Since I've experienced challenges in both areas (like many women), I was curious to see if these supplements would make a difference. In my overall experience, the impact of probiotics is typically subtle, so I didn't observe any major shifts in my body with these supplements (at least not yet). However I did feel emotionally better knowing that I was keeping my bacteria in balance and strengthening my immune system. It's especially nice to know that when I eat a heavy meal, experience stress, or travel, I can pop in a probiotic capsule and support my body through the process.
Ultimate Flora probiotics are made with only natural ingredients and do not contain any dairy, soy, gluten or GMOs. They are also contained within a delayed release capsule that helps resist stomach acid. The Extra Care has 10 strains of beneficial bacteria, including 18 billion Bifidobacteria and 12 billion Lactobacillus cultures to to support both the large and small intestines.
