This post was made possible by iConnect and AlternaScript. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.
Although I try to eat right and exercise, recently I’ve been feeling a little off.
Some of my digestive issues that had previously gone away started popping up, and my energy level was lagging. To be honest, I was also feeling a bit sad and a lot anxious. I knew my gut health was playing a key role, and that part of the issue might be that I hadn't been taking a probiotic.
One of the reasons that one of the first things I considered was a probiotic is that I'd recently read about an August 2015 study in Brain Behavior and Immunity, where it was reported that taking a probiotic supplement for four weeks made participants feel less sad. Another 2014 study published in CNS & Neurological Disorders suggested that “probiotics may mitigate anxiety symptoms” and that the “modulation of the gut microbiota may provide a novel therapeutic target for the prevention of mood and anxiety disorders.”
Although most of us don't think of it often, probiotics are powerful tools in our health. Did you know that there are over 100 trillion bacteria in your gut which have a powerful control over your immune system? When things get out of balance and the good bacteria becomes overpowered by the bad bacteria, they can’t protect you.
Our gut health may be even more important that we once thought. Recent research has called the gut the “second brain” or the “enteric nervous system.” It houses over 100 million neurons, which is more than your spinal cord has. It is believed that these neurons influence the neural, immune and endocrine function.
Although I knew I needed a probiotic, I wasn't sure which one to take. There are so many out there, and I've heard that some of them aren't effective at all. About that time, I learned about NuCulture and was given the chance to try it. I couldn't be happier that I did.
NuCulture, along with all AlternaScript products, can only be purchased through a subscription through the AlternaScript website. They do also offer free trials of their products.
Here is what I like about NuCulture
- The probiotic strains in NuCulture have all been scientifically tested under double-blind and placebo-controlled clinical studies on healthy human populations. These are the most rigorous standards out there.
- NuCulture contains five probiotic strains. The ingredients are non-competing premium patented strains.
- Many probiotics never reach your GI tract and are therefore ineffective. NuCulture offers a delayed-release capsule that survives passage through the acidic stomach environment.
- NuCulutre inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria and promotes immune system health by supporting the growth of beneficial bacteria.
- In addition to containing a probiotic, NuCulture contains a prebiotic which becomes effective within hours of consumption, works in both your small and large intestines, requires only small doses and doesn’t cause gas. Probiotics work to help remove the harmful bacteria so that there is plenty of room for the probiotics to support the growth of good bacteria.
NuCulture offers a free 14-day trial of 7 capsules, which includes free shipping. If you are satisfied with the product, you are then subscribed to their monthly membership of 30 capsules at $47.89 a month.
