Belive Review – ProBiotic Gummies (Results)
You may have heard about probiotics. Probiotics are essential bacteria that are located mostly in your gut and benefit the health and efficiency of your entire immune system, in addition to fighting pathogens and regulating levels of yeast to keep your immune system working as well as it can.
Probiotics usually enter the body via the foods that we eat. Many people lack the optimal amount of probiotics, from people with less healthy diets to people with certain health conditions, to people with vegan diets (as probiotics are most commonly found in dairy products).
As a person who suffers from IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and has a dairy-free diet, I had been recommended probiotic supplements to counteract the symptoms of IBS.
Among other products, I tried BeLive’s Probiotic Gummies product for a month - and in this review, I will explore how effective they were for me!
What Is Belive?
BeLive is an FDA-approved, US-based health supplement manufacturer.
They produce a range of different products, although their most popular products are their gummies - chewable supplements with a range of different ingredients from elderberry to biotin and iron.
BeLive aims to provide healthy, natural, eco-friendly products at reasonable prices (almost all of their products are less than $20), offer free shipping on orders over $50, and they are easily contactable via their website. In addition, their products are made from 100% natural ingredients, are Kosher and Halal-certified, and 100% vegan.
Ingredients/ Bacteria Strains
BeLive’s Probiotic Gummies contain Bacillus Coagulans, a medically-proven probiotic strain, at 1 Billion CFU per serving (the highest potency of any probiotic supplement available!). The full list of ingredients is as follows:
All of these ingredients are 100% natural and 100% vegan, so there is no need to worry about any animal products or synthetic additives in these capsules!
Not only does the product fulfill vegan dietary requirements, but it is also natural and healthy in every way. In fact, this product was one of those featured in our Best Vegan Probiotic 2020 Guide! These ingredients are also feature Naturelo & Mary Ruth's two other great vegan Probiotics in my 2020 guide.
BeLive’s Probiotic Gummies have received good reviews and feedback from customers, which I noticed as I was ordering the product!
Users compared them favorably to more expensive probiotic supplement products available on the market, claiming that they made bowel movements more consistent even more effectively than more expensive products, and reporting improved digestive health.
Users also praised the taste and texture of the gummies, saying that they were very easy to take and comparing them to candy. By all accounts, these gummies are very easy for kids to take!
This product did receive some one-star reviews. Users complained of experiencing diarrhea as an initial side effect which actually matches my personal experience as well.
After ordering my Probiotic Gummies, they arrived very quickly. They came in a bottle of 70 capsules. I decided to take two daily (the maximum recommended dosage) for just over a month, and monitor any effects on my IBS symptoms.
Unfortunately, I have had IBS for many years and tried various products over the years with varying results. IBS frequently gives me pain in my gut, bloating and gas, and alternating periods of diarrhea and constipation. I was hopeful yet skeptical about how well this product would work after seeing many bold claims about other products before!
I took 2 of the gummies once a day after breakfast in the morning. The first thing I noticed was the taste which was a little strange at first. The gummies are advertised as being strawberry and orange-flavored, which is fairly accurate. After a while, the taste became pleasant - the gummies are sweet despite containing only natural sugars.
As the month went on, I noticed a definite reduction in my IBS symptoms - pain and bloating was less frequent and less severe. My bowel movements were also more regular - no more waking up and wondering if I’d either be running to the toilet all day or painfully constipated! By the end of the month, the relief was significant.
Personally, I experienced no side effects with this product. However, everyone is different, so it is always worth checking before you try a new supplement product.
I did not find any reports of side-effects in any of the reviews that I read, and as the product is free from dairy, nuts, gluten, soy, seafood, and GMOs, it seems very unlikely that anybody would suffer an allergic reaction.
If you do though experience side-effects you should consult with a medical professional as soon as possible and discontinue use immediately. You can read the potential side-effects of Probiotics here. I am not a Doctor.
Overall, I was very impressed with Belive’s Probiotic Gummies. The results on my digestive health were certainly noticeable (unlike some other products that I have tried in the past!).
The taste was reasonably pleasant, and at only just over $15 from the official website, the product was much more affordable than other similar options.
I would certainly recommend this product, not just for vegans looking for a probiotic supplement, but also for non-vegans! I can’t think of any criticisms of this product.
