For years I have suffered from Irritable Bowel Syndrome. IBS is  not something I usually talk about. Discussing my  spastic colon is definitely not appropriate for dinner table conversation. However maintaining my digestive health is important to me. Last month I had an I heart Bacteria t-shirt blog giveaway sponsored by Culturelle.  It was tremendous success. I didn't realize how much I needed to wear one of these t-shirts until I tried Culturelle Digestive Health.
Taking Culturelle at the onset of digestive discomfort will help:

  • Reduce uncomfortable gas and bloating*
  • Prevent and shorten the duration of occasional diarrhea*
  • Promote regularity*
Take Culturelle preventively:
  • To help minimize travel associated stomach and digestive issues*
  • To prevent occasional digestive upset*
  • When taking antibiotics*
  • When taken daily, Culturelle® will go beyond improving your digestive system to actually improve your immune system.  
The very day I received my package of Culturelle, I happened to be experiencing an IBS flare up. Less than an hour of taking  1 capsule (ingredients: Lactobacillus GG (10 Billion Cells), Inulin, gelatin capsule. Diary Free.)
I was not no longer feeling gassy and bloated. This, quite frankly surprised me. Any natural product I have tried in the past, has not really helped. I have always had to rely on prescription medications for relief of my pain and discomfort. For a week or so I took the Culturelle Digestive Health . Then I went on a  5 day mini getaway to visit my son & his girlfriend. I flew from Florida to California. Between the day long flight, me being nervous about flying and meeting my son's girlfriend's family and trying out those good food places in CA, my tummy  was a wreck by day 3. I needed my Culturelle. I searched my bag and it was nowhere to be found. Evidently I left it on the kitchen table. Not good. To be honest I bloated up like a beach ball. The flight back to FL was not pleasant. As soon as I arrived home, I took my Culturelle Digestive Health and experienced relief. I have been to taking it every day and my tummy  and I are doing well. I highly recommend this product to anyone who is interested in maintaining their digestive health. I  definitely feel it is working for me. If you think that you may have IBS be sure to consult with a doctor. If you are interested in finding out more about Culturelle, their website is Here. You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.

Culturelle contacted me & asked me if I would like to review one of their products. 
I chose the Digestive Health. All opinions are based on my experience with
this product. I received no monetary compensation for this review.
