I started taking probiotics several years back after a bout with food poisoning so serious, I ended up seeing a GI specialist. Thankfully, it was nothing serious, and simply required a long course of 2 different strains of probiotics. Going forward, I continued to take probiotics as part of an overall approach to health and wellness. If you have ever suffered from from bloating, digestive discomfort, or irregular bowel movements, it may be due to an unbalanced gut microbiome. You have likely heard of probiotics, but you might benefit from a prebiotic as part of your overal gut health.

I have taken supplements for years, but this was my first experience with a prebiotic. I am an avid proponent of taking proactive steps towards a healthier lifestyle, and supplements are part of that approach. My stomach can be sensitive to foods, so I am careful to avoid irritants and eat a relatively clean diet. Adding Gut Connection Digestive Balance has helped maintain regularity while minimizing bloating and discomfort.
