Being a Mom of two boys is wonderfully exhausting and if I am being honest, in the past four years that I have become a Mother, I some how lost sight of myself and focused all of my energy on my children. For 2017, one of my biggest goals was to invest more time into ME.  Find my passions, get healthy, enjoy some free time with my girl friends, and just learn to love me again.

I learned a lot of these goals surrounded the fact that I wasn't loving the skin I'm currently in. It's no surprise that pregnancy and parenting has taken it's toll on me, especially my pregnancies. Since having my first child, my gall bladder decided it was going to hate me and needed to be removed, my thyroid decided it was going to stop working properly, my energy level has been non-existence and my weight - oh, my weight has been a struggle.

When I had my gall bladder removed back in 2014, my surgeon recommended I look into some supplements, mostly probiotics, to help my digestive system. I heard what he said, but I let it go in one ear and out the other. I've always been someone against medicine, supplements, or pills of any sort. I didn't grow up seeing my parents take any supplements so I've always been kind of skeptical of them. However, I've known my digest system hasn't always been the best. I'm not a regular type of girl, if you know what I mean, and being pregnant didn't help that trait. I noticed during my pregnancies, and especially since having my gall bladder removed, I suffered from several gastrointestinal symptoms including bloating, constipation and just general discomfort. Add in motherhood and I felt drained and sluggish, like in the video below:

When I was contacted by MomsMeet to do a review of NOW Women's Probiotic 20 Billion, I was very intrigued. After hearing a lot about probiotic's, I wanted to give it a try for myself. While researching NOW Women's Probiotic 20 Billion, I loved the fact that it was a probiotic with Women specifically in mind. It is formulated to support women's health in all stages of life. I'm a sucker for a good infographic, so I loved that NOW teamed up with Yoga Journal Magazine earlier this month and created this lovely visual guide to show the importance of a good probiotic:

When my samples came, I was equally excited and nervous. NOW sent me their Women's Probiotic as well as their Super Enzymes, which supports digestive health and helps break down fats, carbs and protein, and their Kids BerryDophilus Chewables probiotics. 

I immediately started using the Women's probiotic and as of today, I've almost been on it an entire month. I honestly love it! I love it so much I've already purchased a second bottle so when I finish this one I don't run out. I can 100% tell a difference in the changes it has made for me and my body. Not only has it helped me become a more regular girl, I haven't dealt with the occasional bloat and discomfort I slowly became use to. 

I have also noticed I have been sleeping better since I started taking my Women's Probiotic 20 Billion. During the day, I feel as though I am able to focus better and my energy level has definitely increased. I also decided to try the Super Enzymes. I do believe it has helped a little, but I don't plan to buy it for continuous use. Baby steps people, baby steps! Weston currently takes a probiotic, and has since he was three to help with digestive issues, so unfortunately I haven't tried the Kids full size sample I received. 

NOW has graciously offered to give one lucky reader a free sample of the Women's Probiotic 20 Billion {$33.99 MSRP}! Please note, to enter the giveaway you must live in the US and be 18+. Deadline to enter the giveaway is Tuesday, May 30th!
