I’ve talked about probiotics before, and I’ve actually talked about ReNew Life before too! I first bought probiotic supplements when my husband and daughter were on antibiotics. I had read that probiotics would help counteract the effects of the antibiotics killing the good bacteria in your gut (they worked.) At the time, I actually didn’t realize that they were made by ReNew Life…we were just told by the store clerk that they were “the best.”
I have continued to buy them and they have made a huge difference for me. I have had “tummy troubles” my whole life, and boy, pregnancy sure doesn’t help matters!! I buy my kids the chewable Flora Bears or Buddy Bears and they ask for their “bear” every day! For myself and my husband I typically buy the Ultimate Flora Critical Care 50 billion, but I recently bought the 80 billion because it was on sale at my store!
This is what’s in my fridge right now and yes, I bought them myself, they weren’t given to me and I wasn’t paid to endorse ReNew Life!
My husband went on a business trip, which meant a week of not sleeping on the uncomfortable hotel pillows, along with eating out every day, and the stress of traveling. When he came home, his stomach was “pretty messed up” (in his words!) It didn’t help that he hadn’t been taking probiotics while he was gone either. I bought him a box of the 200 billion Super Critical Probiotics, which is a box of 7 powder packets (kind of like single serve drink mixes.) You mix it with liquid and drink up. My husband said it dissolved better if you put the liquid in your glass first, then added the powder, and it dissolved better in apple juice than orange juice. He tends to be a bit skeptical about, well…everything, but the proof was in the
pudding probiotics. The day after he took the first dose he said he felt so much better, and he ended up only using about 3 packets before he felt “back to normal.”
I have spent tons of time and money researching and buying various fiber supplements, and nothing has really worked for me. I was actually surprised at the difference ReNew life has made for me, and I can tell when I’ve forgotten to take my probiotic for a day or two. Even though I’m
cheap frugal, especially when it comes to something for me, I will continue to buy them!
The importance of taking a probiotic within 2-3 hours of antibiotics is one of the things that ReNew Life aims to teach young adults through their “How Does Poo move You” outreach initiative. I’m guessing that most teens and young adults think that Fiber Supplements and talk of digestive health are for geriatrics…I know I’ve told my hubby that I feel like an old person with all my issues! ReNew Life is using potty humor to reach out to young adults with their How Does Poo Move You Facebook page and video contest. (Check out the HDPMY YouTube Channel and the winning video.)
I’ve learned through trial and error that daily exercise, along with a high fiber, lower fat/carb/processed food diet helps me maintain a healthy digestive system. ReNew Life know that most young adults don’t pay attention to their digestive health, and don’t know how to counteract or naturally treat digestive health issues and common symptoms. The key objective of the “How Does Poo Move You” campaign is to educate with a goal toward digestive health issue prevention.
This is awesome! I wish I had known what I know now about digestive health, 15+ years ago. The PG/PG-13 “potty humor” angle means they can reach out to teens/young adults and get through to them!
