Renew Life Ultimate Flora Probiotic: Product Review

Ultimate Flora Extra Care Probiotic 30 Billion
The benefits of many, many, many, many, many supplements are overstated.  MANY!

It is overwhelming to go into a health food store and walk down the aisles packed with products promising to change your health/body/life, and know which ones are worth spending on and which ones are totally bogus.  Many are a total waste of money, many are still unproven, but a few are gems.

I am a big fan of probiotics.  The science and research behind them is sound, which is what matters to me.  They promote healthy digestion and absorption of nutrients, bowel function, weight management and immunity.  Most of us can use some help on all these fronts!

Renew Life sent me a 10 day trial pack to take their 10-day challenge.  I really didn't expect anything because I was already taking probiotics and didn't think anything would really make a noticeable difference in such a short period of time.  To my surprise, however, by day 3, my pipes were definitely moving more smoothly! Oh I love probiotics!!

Here are the details on this particular product:

Ultimate Flora Extra Care Probiotic 30 Billion probiotic is a high-potency once daily probiotic supplement formulated for those who want a higher culture count of good bacteria to help relieve digestive issues such as occasional gas, bloating, constipation and irritable bowel.
 
It contains 30 billion active probiotic cultures per capsule and 10 strains of beneficial bacteria, including 18 billion Bifidobacteria and 12 billion Lactobacillus cultures to support both the large and small intestines.
 
Our unique delayed release capsule helps resist stomach acid.

Ultimate Flora probiotics are made with only natural ingredients. They do not contain any dairy, soy, gluten or GMOs.
 
I like that you only need to take one a day.
 
The only drawback of probiotics is that they are quite pricey and this is no exception.  I did find some pretty good deals through amazon.ca though.
 
Honestly, if you are going to spend on a supplement but are on a limited budget, I would put probiotics at the top of your list, even before a multivitamin, which scientists are still uncertain about having any benefits.  Of course, even more important is eating a nutritious diet which means lots of fruits and veggies and whole, unprocessed foods!
 
They have also promised me some samples for followers, so follow me on Twitter and you could win some of your own! Be sure to use the hashtag #UltimateFlora10.
 
Disclosure: I was sent the product at no charge but all opinions on this blog are my own.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this. I am taking also some supplements for my three times a week exercises to gym. So far, as I observe in my body from the start, it really need carbohydrates for energy and this good supplement can provide nutrients that support the essential processes that keep in my body running smoothly. Therefore, it is essential to be knowledgeable about the role of nutrition. Keep posting it! This can help a lot for healthy living.

Blackfly Coolers: Product Review

Summer is over! Well, at least if you're a student. Officially it doesn't end for a few weeks, and it certainly still feels like summer. Yeah, I hate it. This f*cking hot, humid weather needs to end NOW! We made the most of our last weekend of the summer with our annual trip to the CNE on Friday, with a crowd of friends. It wasn't unbearably lot, thank goodness, and the girls and their friends had a blast on the rides.  Saturday I had to work, and Sunday was errand day. Monday we took the girls berry/apple/pear picking but didn't last long due to the heat. I organized the house to prepare for the construction workers starting back up yesterday, while Adam took the girls for a swim in our neighbourhood pool.

Yesterday was the first day of school. Grade 2 and Grade 5. Yep, the girls are growing up.  We are fortunate that the girls don't have much anxiety about school, they are so much more confident than I ever was as a kid! But now, in the midst of our reno chaos, …

Live Clean

I have been committed to living a healthy life through nutrition and fitness for over 20 years now.

It took me a lot longer to pay attention to what I was cleaning the house with and what I was putting ON my body as opposed to IN it.

When I got pregnant with Big A I started reading about the toxins in a lot of commercial cleaning products and switched to the all-natural, eco-friendly stuff. When I became pregnant with Little A, I switched to all-natural, eco-friendly personal care products.

I am all for being environmentally friendly for the good of the planet, but to be honest, what really motivates me to make these types of changes is concern for my family's health.

You may remember I mentioned giving up my favorite perfume a while back because it apparently is full of nasty chemicals. I switched to the "Red Tea" scent made my Roots, which is supposed to be somewhat "natural". This was only after a number of trial and errors. I first found a woman in …

Panang Curry

When we go out for Thai food, one of my favorite things to order is the panang curry. But there is no doubt when this dish is made in a restaurant, it packs a hefty wallop of fat, sodium and calories.

My version is lightened up, but still rich and flavourful and it is super simple to make.

Traditionally, panang curry is made with either beef or chicken, but I made it vegetarian, using dried seiten (wheat gluten) I got at T&T a few weeks ago. If you are not sensitive to gluten, this is a great source of vegetarian protein. If you cannot find it dried, you can get it prepared at most health food stores. Alternatively, you can use tofu, or the more traditional chicken or beef options.

This dish also doesn't usually have much vegetable matter in it, but I love how yummy veggies taste when simmered in this sauce, and it makes this a healthy one-pot meal. Use whatever veggies you prefer or have on hand.

Protein of choice (2 cups seiten or 1 lb organic tofu, boneless skinless ch…
