Product Review: Digestics Probiotic Food Supplement

Sunday, October 27, 2013

     Eating the right kind of food everyday is a hard protocol for me because I always count the calories that I load in my body and not the kinds of food found in the food pyramid. If you're a long time reader of this blog, I'm sure you've read my stories about dieting and pushing myself to stay fit and healthy. It's very hard you know when you were born in a family who loves to eat. Despite the unhealthy eating habits and the drinking sesh weekly, I always make sure that there's something in my diet that will help me expel toxins in my body. I'm a regular user of psyllium husk fiber for four years now that's why I'm brave enough to junk all the starches and oils in my body. But that's unhealthy and don't do that even if you're drinking supplements that will reduce the bad fats in the body because it's insane that you're trying to live a healthy lifestyle but you're ingesting unhealthy stuff, see the picture?

     Nowadays, people become more and more aware of the supplements that will help them lose the bad fat and cholesterol in their system in a very easy and convenient way. All the food that we eat gets easily digested if we have healthy stomach so good bacteria is needed to make our tummies happy! Just recently, Sample Room introduced this newest supplement in the market today that contains fiber and probiotics in one. Introducing Digestics, click CONTINUE READING to know more about this wonderful product.
Digestics Probiotic Food Supplement
    I got my samples of Digestics from Sample Room. I was surprised when I saw that I'll be getting 2 boxes of this tummy-friendly product (20 pcs) that lasted me for 10 days because I mix this sweetener like product to my coffee twice a day. It's not very sweet but the texture is like that of Equal. Here are some important information that I got from Digestics website- Advantages of Digestics:
Compared to OTC Laxative Drugs:
  • Has little to no side-effects (possible mild bloating and flatulence)
  • Probiotics and fiber are considered natural compounds
  • Is safe to take daily

Compared to Fiber Supplements:
  • Product easily and completely dissolves in beverages
  • Is mildly flavored and easy to drink (does not significantly alter the taste of your beverage).
  • Can also be taken in other hassle-free ways --- directly by mouth or mixed with cool to room temperature food

Compared to Cultured Milks and Yogurts:

  • Low calorie (contains only 16 calories per sachet), lactose-free and sugar-free
  • Can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere

What are Probiotics
"For life"
This is what probiotic literally means. Probiotics are living organisms that are believed to improve health. These are bacteria with benefits.
However, not all good bacteria can be called probiotics. What makes these living organisms qualify as probiotics is their survival skills. Their strains should be able to withstand the acidic environment of the stomach in order to make its way to the digestive tract – where most of the work happens.
How Probiotics Work
Probiotics help in improving intestinal function and supporting the lining of the intestines. The good bacteria fight off diarrhea and constipation-causing bad bacteria. In the end, probiotics help restore balance in the digestive system and promote healthy digestion and even the immune system. 
When to take Probiotics
Probiotic supplements are safe to take on a daily basis. Moreover, it is suggested that people who experience constipation or constipation-related symptoms such as lack of fiber should take probiotics to balance out digestion. Digestics, which has a combination of probiotics and fiber, can be taken for constipation.
What I like:
  • It's affordable.
  • It's very easy and convenient to use.
  • Doesn't gave negative reaction on my body.
  • Made my bowel movement regular.
  • Lessened my tummy ache due to abnormal eating habits.
  • Easily accessible.
  • There's a batch number, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the box.
What i don't like:
  • None so far.
Will I repurchase? Yes since it has fiber and probiotic in one.

Recommendation:
     I give this a 4.75/5 rating. Of all the supplements that I drink everyday, this one is a must. It's very tummy friendly and I don't worry too much of being constipated even if I eat more protein than fiber nowadays. Since I'll be starting mg HCG diet next week, I'll repurchase more because the said diet will make my bowel movement irregular due to less calorie and fiber intake. Will still update this post once I'm done with Digestics and HCG diet :)

     Have you tried Digestics? How do you keep your tummy healthy? Thanks for reading!

    
Good Times!~
