Why probiotics are important | Provella Probiotic Product Spotlight

Provella™ Probiotic Dietary Supplement For Women


I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Provella™. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

I have had IBS (Irritable Bowl Syndrome) since a very young age. It’s very hard to get just the right balance in your eating habits, if you make the wrong choice you will pay for it dearly. Exercising, eating right and getting plenty of sleep are how I attempt to keep a good flow in my body. I also try to drink as much water as I can plus stay away from foods that contain high levels of ascorbic acid.  Since I can’t always be perfect or make good choices I take probiotics, I am always on the look out for cheap, quality probiotics which is easier said than done, most are really expensive. I was given the opportunity to try Provella for 60 days and so far I am on day 14.  I have to say, it’s working pretty well. I usually take medical grade probiotics but Provella has been working almost as well. I have been really impressed. As Moms, we spend a lot of our time ensuring our families are happy and healthy.

So why should you take a probiotic even if you don’t have IBS like me? Why is it important especially for women?

Good or “friendly” bacteria are permanent residents of body surfaces such as the skin, the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, and the tissues that line the vaginal walls. These good bacteria comprise the body’s normal flora. Unfortunately, because of factors such as antibiotic use, changes in hormone levels, spermicides, and diet, normal flora can be easily disrupted which can negatively impact certain body functions. In the GI tract for example, an imbalance of friendly and unfriendly bacteria can lead to occasional gastrointestinal disruptions. Probiotics are one option that can be used to help reestablish the balance between good and bad bacteria.

As a woman and/or moms today are constantly making choices to balance their busy lives, maintaining digestive,feminine and immune health is no different. Probiotics can help. Certain bacteria are known to be beneficial to women; for example, lactobacilli are part of the normal vaginal flora. They support urogenital health and aid proper digestion. Bifidobacteria, as a normal inhabitant of the intestines, have gastrointestinal benefits and support healthy immune responses.

So how do you choose a good probiotic?

Pick a probiotic that has several strains of Lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium bifidum. Provella does provide an adequate supply of both.

What makes Provella™ unique?

It has been estimated that as few as 20-40% of certain probiotic bacteria survive passage through the gut. Stomach acid is a major threat to probiotic survival.9 The patented controlled-release technology in Provella™ helps protect its good bacteria from harsh stomach acid and is designed to help ensure that active bacteria get to the intestines, where they can begin working.
