Nature Made Digestive Probiotics Full Review & Opinion
Compared to some other probiotics, the Nature Made Probiotic has actually shown some great results, at least according to the research that studied the strains in this probiotic.
With over 12 probiotic strains and 30 billion CFUs per serving this sounds like a great option, but does it work? Here’s my experience!
Nature Made Digestive Probiotics Ingredients
The fact that this probiotic contains over 14 billion cells and 8 strains of probiotics is quite excellent – however, keep in mind that the cell count is guaranteed only at the factory.
- Lactobacillus plantarum,
- Lactobacillus acidophilus,
- Lactobacillus paracasei,
- Bifidobacterium lactis,
- Cellulose Gel,
- Magnesium Stearate,
- Silicon Dioxide
This is where we notice the first problem with this product, as also stated on their site…
As mentioned the Nature Made Digestive Probiotics Ultra Strength has 12 different probiotic strains, but MOST of the bacteria is only from 2 strains:
Lactobacillus plantarum (10 Billion CFU),
Bifidobacterium lactis (2 Billion CFU).
Unfortunately this is also all the data we have on which strains are actually in the product, given the fact that we only know the names of 4 out of 12 strains, doesn’t instill much trust in me…
But for the strains that we do know and are aware of, this is what I think…
For Lactobacillus plantarum, the research has shown several health benefits including improvements in Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Crohn’s Disease and the symptoms that go along with these (bloating, irregularity, and constipation)
There’s also Bifidobacterium lactis, which I’m a BIG fan of, as the strain has been shown to fight lactose intolerance and provide benefit and relief for ulcerative colitis and even REVERSE celiac disease and lactose intolerance – medbio.info/best-probiotics-for-lactose-intolerance/ .
Recommended dosage for Nature Made Digestive Probiotics
The recommended dosage for Nature Made Digestive Probiotics is one capsule daily, I recommend taking it right before a meal with a glass or two of water.
Nature Made Probiotic Review and Thoughts
Let’s first start with what I liked.
The packaging and quality of the product are at a very high standard and that’s something I always appreciate.
I also really like that Nature Made Probiotic includes 2 of my favorite probiotic strains and has over 30 BILLION CFUs, which drastically improve the effectiveness of this product, the more healthy bacteria – the better!
The capsules are also shaped nicely and have a good shape, which makes them really easy to consume and get down with a glass of water.
Now to what I didn’t like…
First off, the product is a bit confusing – why would you package a product with 25 pills, if you’re supposed to take one per day.
I’d rather see an increased price and get 30 pills – enough for an entire month, than the odd 25.
Additionally, I’m still sceptical about the ingredients of the product – I know that it’s something people usually don’t dig into, but I always do…
And something smells fishy – why wouldn’t Nature Made share all the strains of probiotics out of the 12 listed? Sharing 4 is just not good enough…
Here’s what my experience was like and the results I experienced…
Nature Made Digestive Health Probiotic Benefits
Regarding the positives, I felt a lot less bloated and noticed an improvement in regularity about 4 days into the regimen.
Even though I ate a lot of bad food over the past week, I didn’t have any digestion problems or gas – which does usually happen if I don’t take probiotics – as bad as it sounds.
However these are about the only two benefits that I experienced and I was a bit let down, as I experience a lot more benefits with other probiotics, thus I cannot really say I was happy or impressed with the results and benefits I got from Nature Made Probiotics.
Nature Made Probiotic Side Effects and Allergies
Even though I didn’t really get many benefits from taking the probiotics, luckily I also didn’t experience any side effects.
Thank god for that, because it’d be a real bummer to have to deal with side effects, after no real benefits…
Regarding allergies, I have some good news.
Nature Made Digestive Probiotics contain NO dairy, wheat, soy or any other GMOs, there’s also no color or artificial flavoring, which is a plus.
