Daily Probiotics: The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread
This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as a part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central.
Let’s talk about the happiest place on earth.
Nope, not Disneyland (although that’s definitely a close personal second).
What we’re talking about today is Walmart.
I LOVE Walmart. It truly is like the Mecca for me. I need some bread for my lunch at work? Check. Also need the fancy insulated lunch bag to put it in? Check. Can of paint? Check. New microwave? Check. Seriously, what’s not to love about this place?
I also buy all my pharmaceutical products at Walmart. Everything from allergy medicine to stomach relief medicine is thrown in my cart. They’ve just got such a dang big selection that you really can buy any of your health or medicine needs there. Recently I was given the chance to try the Nature Made® Advanced Dual Action Probiotic and it will also be added to my list of must-haves from Walmart.
My love affair with vitamins
Let’s back up for a second and I’ll tell you a little bit about me. I am a firm believer in the benefits of vitamins, minerals, and supplements. I’ve always felt that vitamins, minerals, and supplements support your body in better ways than we can support it on our own. Trying different products and seeing which benefits I can get is exciting for me and I love it! I am always on the lookout for striking the perfect mind-body balance and vitamins, minerals, and supplements have been crucial in this experience (also yoga. I can’t mention the mind-body balance without tooting the horn for yoga).
This is where Walmart comes in. The selection of vitamins, minerals, and supplements offered at Walmart is outstanding. I always find what I’m looking for and usually a few new things that I didn’t know existed. At my local Walmart, there are two huge aisles full of vitamins, minerals, and supplements so there is no shortage of selection.
My other love affair with Nature Made®
I especially appreciate the selection and quality of Nature Made® products as Nature Made® is the #1 Pharmacist Recommended brand for many key dietary supplement categories*. They also just have such a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and supplements that can help fill in the nutritional gaps. Seriously, any health goals that you’ve got in mind from digestive support to heart health and function to energy metabolism to women’s health and anything in between, they’ve got you covered. It’s awesome.
If you don’t know what kind of vitamins, minerals, or supplements you need in order to help support your body, you can go to www.healthyhabitbuilder.com to join the Nature Made® Healthy Habit Builder program. I got on and said that I had a goal of improving my digestive health and immediately was e-mailed tips about how to get more fiber in my diet. Over time, they’ll send me different tips and ways to form real habits that will help me achieve my goal of improving my digestive health. Easy peasy lemon squeezy and it’s good for me, too! I love this tool and how Nature Made® vitamins, minerals, and supplements are such an easy, convenient way to help your body get the nutritional support it needs every day, whether it be to support bone health, immune health or energy metabolism (helping convert food into energy).†
The good stuff
OK, so let’s loop back around to these probiotics. I am a BIG FAN of probiotics. Big fan. I love knowing that I’m taking care of my gut by doing more than just sit-ups (although let’s be real I’m not doing those either). You’re probably wondering what in the heck a probiotic even does. No worries, I used to be blissfully unaware of the awesomeness of probiotics too.
Generally, when you think of bacteria, you think of harmful stuff. However, there are both good and bad bacteria floating around in your gut. The good bacteria are known as probiotics but these can get thrown out of whack for all kinds of reasons. Taking a daily probiotic helps keep all these good bacteria in line. Enter Nature Made® Advanced Dual Action Probiotic. It has been clinically studied and provides dual support to both your small and large intestine for comprehensive coverage to help support digestive balance and healthy gut flora.† Aka life for your gut is good! Taking these probiotics every day is such an easy way to take care of your gut.
Save those shekels
Now. I am a millennial who loooves a good deal and it’s no secret that Walmart is the headquarters for good deals. One of my favorite parts about Walmart is that you don’t have to wait for something to go on sale before you snap it up. I’ve always found the best prices on pharmaceutical products and medicine at Walmart and Nature Made® products are definitely no exception. I promise, buying from Walmart guarantees that you’re saving money and you don’t even have to clip coupons. No hate for the people that are couponing pros! I’d rather just get a good price to begin with and not hassle with it.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! If you visit this website, you can enter for a chance to win a $50 Walmart gift card! You’d be able to buy your shiny new probiotics AND some new kitchen towels with $50!
So are you sold yet?! You should be. These Nature Made® Advanced Dual Action Probiotic kick some serious booty and your gut (and your wallet!) will thank you!
