My life has endless blank pages…

Probulin Probiotics Review

A few months back, while I was in Europe, I had entered to win a Probulin Probiotics pack from Bulu Box. I never win anything, so I didn’t think much of it afterwards, even though I really wanted to win. With my GI and digestive issues (more on that in a later post), I’ve been wanting to give probiotics a try for about 2 years, but they don’t come cheap, and I just could never afford to keep purchasing them long enough to make a difference. I’ve had a few friends and family members use various probiotics for different issues, and they all swear by them.

I went to Europe for the month of August, and partway through, I was notified that I was the winner! Hooray! But sadly, I’d have to wait until I was back in the US to start using them. When I got back in September, I was so excited to open up my box, and found multiple bottles of Probiotics, a Probiotics for Dummies book and a lovely note from Bulu Box.

According to their website, Probulin is the “All-in-one digestive pill.” I was ready to put that statement to the test! The company was founded in January 2011, and is a live bacteria product that includes seven types of probiotics (including Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1 strain). Probiotics are essential to a healthy digestive system, and it helps clean up your intestinal tract, which makes digestion and waste elimination easier. It helps to reduce occasional gas, bloating and constipation. For someone that looks at least 5 months pregnant after most meals (even the small ones), I really wanted to test this claim. It helps regulat bowel movements (I’m good, but thanks), and can help support your immune system, something I also desperately need. Healthy digestion and help me fight illness? Sign me up.

ImageNow I’ve tried other medications (prescribed) for my issues, but none have worked. I’ve tweaked my diet, and sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn’t. It’s really hit or miss, and that’s the most frustrating part of it all. I know the bottle said 3 per day, but I started with 2 because I’m paranoid about medications having adverse affects on my sensitive stomach. Once I knew I was ok with 2 per day, I upped it to the recommended 3 per day dosage. I just finished my last 2 pills, so I thought now would be a good time to finally review them since I’ve had a full cycle in my body.

Pros:
-
I noticed a difference after only about 4 days
-They don’t taste bad (a HUGE for me)
-No side effects
-I have never been successfully able to eat dairy products multiple days in a row without getting ill (except when I was in Europe. I blame chemicals in American dairy?) until I started taking Probulin. Cheese for days!!!
-During that entire month, I only had one flare-up, and it wasn’t as bad as they normally are. Prior to taking Probulin, I would have anywhere from 2-10 per month.
-I normally feel sluggish after eating/between meals/all the time because of the way my body processes food. While I wasn’t a raging ball of energy, I did notice an improvement in my energy levels, and that is always welcome!
- I started to get sick mid-way through the month, and it was mild and only lasted about 2 days. WIN! for the person who gets sick at the drop of a hat.

Cons:
- I just took my last 2 pills and at $49.99 for a one-month supply, I just can’t afford to get more right now. I’m not looking forward to the next few weeks without them!

I can’t wait until I can afford to take these regularly, because I know it will improve my health drastically, since it has always worked it’s magic with a short 30-day supply. If you have digestive issues, I highly recommend giving Probulin a try!

  2. Very interesting… I wonder if they would be willing to help sponsor you. Clearly it works and you have a platform to reach people and share the benefits.

    • If Probulin sponsored me as a slow runner (who loves running but will never win), I’d be over the moon and shout their praises from the rooftops!

  3. I have a bottle of these sitting at my house. I haven’t decided if I want to take them or not but your review on them might make me believe I can do it. Seems very interesting! thanks! (:

  4. You can get the same probiotics from any ole yogurt. Have you tried eating a plain yogurt per day and compare it to the effect of these pills? Chances are, it will work the same, just a lot cheaper. The enzymes in the yogurt may also help you digest lactose and therefore yogurt should work with your lactose intolerance.

  5. Thanks for the review, Love the fact that Probulin replied too! Yogurt doesn’t work for me either, but I can’t give it up… When I finish the bottle of probiotics I have, will look into Probulin. Wish there was a single dose method.
