For those of us who have/had made a conscience decision to ensure 2015 is the year we look after our bodies be it losing weight, maintaining weight or even just toning up I want to bring to your attention another part of our bodies that we should be taking care of too. How well do you look after your gut? I know for a fact that last year even the years before that I did not really put much thought into caring for my gut but this year I have made a decision to ensure that I look after my gut properly. For the last 12+ days I have been taking Microbiome Plus+ from iShopNutrition, these are more complete and natural dietary supplements. I have never taken microbiome supplements before and I am usually sceptical with supplements because most don’t really do what they claim. The supplements I have been taking are gastrointestinal supplements and so far so good. Microbiome are organisms that we share our bodies with, generally they are non-pathogenic (don’t cause disease) and they exist in harmony & symbiotically with the host (us) but they can cause diseases if they grow or mix abnormally and have been linked to the common obesity. Packed with this knowledge I decided to care for my gut by taking these microbiome supplements.
About the Product

•SUPPORT MOOD & BOOST ENERGY – Poor nutrient absorption can leave you short on essential vitamins and minerals. Fatigue, irritability, and a lack of motivation are signs of nutrient deficiency. Probiotics develop a healthy microenvironment in the digestive system and gastrointestinal tract that optimizes nutrient absorption, giving you the positive energy and happy feelings to be your vibrant self.
•LOSE WEIGHT – Weight-loss research suggests that healthy microflora in the gut can speed your metabolism and support fat loss. Fat burning is more than just an exercise routine. For healthy weight loss, give your body the probiotic support it needs.
•Maintains balance of healthy bacteria
•IMPROVE & MAINTAIN HEALTH – Your gut is home to 80% of your immune system, where good bacteria (probiotics) battle with bad bacteria to prevent disease and relieve allergies, bloating, gas, and constipation. Probiotics replenish disease-fighting bacteria and help maintain digestive functions and immune health by controlling candida and yeast overgrowth.
The tablets are huge in size compared to your normal vitamin supplements, in each pack there is two strips; one for a.m and one for p.m. What I know is there is no bitter taste with these supplements and though I am not a big fan on big tablets I have noticed that I am swallowing these in one go without a problem which is a big shock to me as taking tablets or supplements has never been fan for me. Please note these tablets are not for losing weight but to aid in weight loss if that is what you’re working towards. So if you are always exercising or taking steps to lose weight these supplements will aid that. But if you’re unsure I always recommend you check with your GP especially if you’re on other medications. I have noticed an improvement in my metabolism and a boost in energy, I cannot testify to mood as I am a happy person anyway so unless people have noticed something else I cannot say. I am happy to know that these microbiomes are supporting my inflammatory response and my immune system overall as this time of colds the last thing I want is to catch a cold.Having checked out the iShopNutrition website I am convinced they know what they’re doing, they sell vitamins, nutrients, supplements even body creams and body lotion. There website is easy on the eye and to navigate, they have a search functionality making it easier to search for products. Check them out and see if they can cater for your needs and if unsure about the supplements (which they supply different kinds) check with your GP (doctor).
