I turned 36 in May. Yeah, I’m not afraid to tell the world my age. 36 isn’t so bad. It doesn’t feel that different from 30. Besides it’s the new 26, right?
The one thing I do notice about getting older is that I can’t eat whatever I want anymore without consequence. Besides the fact that too much of a good things goes right to my hips, it can also cause digestive problems. So I decided to give Member’s Mark 4x Probiotic from Sam’s Club a try for two weeks to see if it makes a difference in how I feel.
I know. We don’t really like to talk about our digestive systems. It’s kind of an embarrassing topic, but we all have one and we all need them to work right. As we age our digestive system, along with the rest of our body, starts to work less efficiently.
Probiotics introduce healthy bacteria into your digestive system to improve its functions. Yep. It might sound a little weird, but we need good bacteria to help us digest our food properly. A digestive system that doesn’t work properly can result in a number of things from occasional discomfort to your body not getting the proper nutrition from the food you eat. That’s why digestive health is so important.
I’ve never been diagnosed with lactose intolerance by a doctor, but I’ve noticed in the last few years eating a lot of dairy will leave me feeling yucky the next day. I’m hoping Member’s Mark 4x Probiotic will solve that problem for me, because I really like ice cream and cheese. Everything’s better with cheese.
Now research also suggests that probiotics strengthen your immune system. If that’s the case, I’m all over that. I have two little boys that bring home all kinds a colds and illness from church and school. I would love to not spend the entire winter sick on the couch. This research says probiotics may even prevent ear infections and other common illness in children. I might just put my kids on them too. I need to look into that a little more first, and talk to their pediatrician. For now I’m trying out Member’s Mark 4x Probiotic from Sam’s Club for two weeks on myself.
We’ve been members of Sam’s Club for years, and I’ve also been a fan of their Member’s Mark brand for a long time. I know I’ll get a high quality, affordable product. I like that Member’s Mark 4x Probiotic comes in a pack that holds a three-month supply. Less trips to the store means easier for me.
You can see my whole shopping trip below on This Moment. I’ll be back to let you know how the two week trial goes.
