Happy Bellies, Happy Lady Parts?!? #MomsMeet #Sponsored

When the opportunity arose - through my association with Moms Meet - to try Jarrow Probiotics, I was thrilled. We have long used probiotics in our household. When the boys were smaller and were prescribed antibiotics for ear infections, etc., we fed them yogurt with live cultures to replenish the good bacteria in their bellies. When R has any digestive issues - he gets constipated when he's stressed - he takes probiotics. But we have usually taken them in the form of yogurt or a liquid probiotic that needs to be refrigerated and has a fairly short shelf-life. I've rarely tried them in pill format.


With all the research of gut health on more sustained diseases, including autoimmune diseases, more and more people in my circle of family, friends, and extended family are aiming to up their probiotic intake. I was excited to try these products. If you're wondering about probiotics' relevance on my kitchen blog, think about it this way. With my recipes, I aim for happy bellies. Probiotics help keep bellies happy and healthy.

What ARE Probiotics?
Probiotics are living bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, particularly good for your digestive system. Most people think of bacteria as harmful, as things that cause diseases. But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad, and they are naturally found in your body.

About Jarrow Probiotics
Jarrow Rogovin founded Jarrow Formulas in 1977 in Los Angeles. They now produce a complete line of nutritional products including vitamins, minerals, probiotics, herbal concentrates, amino acids, enzymes, and other nutrition products. Their mission is reflected in its motto "Superior Nutrition and Formulation."

I have to be honest: I never actually thought there would be a difference between probiotics for women, men, and children. So, the "Promotes Healthy Vaginal Microflora Promotes Urinary Tract Health" tagline was a wee bit baffling. But happy, healthy lady parts are never a bad thing, right?

The Jarro-Dophilus Women product contains four patented strains of lactobacilli probiotics that are found in vaginal tracts of healthy women. Needless to say, the tagline made it so that my boys dropped that box like a hot potato, so I tried the formula for women and they shared the YumYum Dophilus.

My Thoughts
Would I consider these quality products? Absolutely. Do I think they do what they claim to do? Sure. Happy, happy!

As I mentioned, we've long taken probiotics, but we don't usually take them in pill or capsule form. In fact, my boys don't really take pills very well. Thankfully, the YumYum Dophilus was chewable. Perfect!

I'd call Jarrow Formulas a success for our household. You can find these products at health food stores all around the country, including Whole Foods Market and Sprouts Farmers Market.
