NOW Women's Probiotic 20 Billion Review and Giveaway

I received this product for free from Moms Meet (, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own.

I want to be ready for whatever adventure life brings me. 
Nothing is worse than traveling to my favorite vacation spots and then feeling too crummy to get out hiking or biking. It's especially hard being lactose intolerant. No matter how hard I try not to eat dairy, it still finds a way to creep into my diet which leaves me bloated and gassy.

Many years ago, I discovered probiotics. As long as I am faithful about using a good probiotic every day, my digestive issues are nearly non-existant* which leaves me feeling good enough to summit the next peak. 

I've tried many different brands so I was excited to try the NOW Women's Probiotic 20 Billion. I currently use NOW products and consider them high quality. The Women's Probiotic did not disappoint. When I look for a probiotic, I always check out the strains of bacteria to make sure I get the ones that work best. The Now Women's Probiotic contain the Lactobacillus Rhamnosus HN001 strain and the Lactobacillus Acidophilus LA-14 strain which help colonize and maintain a healthy PH in the vaginal tract.* The probiotics also contain Bifidobacterium Lactis H9019 which supports GI regularity and reduces bloating.* I always look for probiotics with 20 billion CFU which stands for Colony-Forming units. Now Women's Probitics has the CFU's I want and need. While I know supplements are not evaluated by the FDA and don't work for everyone, the Now Women's Probiotic worked for me in preventing bloating associated with my diet.

When trying the Women's Probiotic, I paired them with the NOW Super Enzymes and it was a great combination. I could rest at ease with my digestive system working the way I wanted it to. I didn't have any bloating or digestive issues the entire two weeks I tried the products for my review. I didn't have any abdominal pain getting in the way of enjoying an active lifestyle. I already have age slowing me down, I don't need health issues getting in the way too. Besides the fact the I feel better when I use the NOW Probiotics, I like that the pills are not too big. I have a hard time swallowing some supplements because of the pill size. The Now Probiotics are easy for me to swallow for two reasons:  One, the pill size is small enough that I don't get it caught in my throat and two, it is made out of an easier to swallow capsule.

Besides the fact that NOW Probiotics work for me, I'm impressed that NOW is one of the few supplement companies that use DNA fingerprinting technology to guarantee the identity, purity and potency of the bacterial strains used in their products and to identify possible contaminants prior to production. Since the FDA doesn't regulate the products, I'm glad to know that NOW cares enough about their customers to self regulate their products.
