Nature Made Probiotic Review – (FEMALE TESTED)
After reviewing Jarrow’s Female Probiotic earlier, I decided to find another effective female probiotic. I came across Nature Made Digestive Women’s Probiotic, which also has hundreds of positive reviews online and is considered among the best probiotics in the market.
In this Nature Made Probiotic Review, I’ll discuss all the aspects of Nature Made Digestive Women’s Probiotic. You will be able to make an informed decision after learning from my experience using this product.
What is Nature Made Women Digestive ProBiotic?
Nature Made Women Digestive Probiotic is a probiotic which is also packed with 23 essential nutrients and multivitamins. This has been designed to support women’s overall health. Nature Made is a registered brand name of Pharmavite LLC, which was founded in 1971 by California pharmacist, Barry Pressman.
Pharmavite was acquired by Otsuka Pharmaceutical, a multibillion-dollar Japanese pharmaceutical giant in 1989. Pharmavite was one of the earliest players in the dietary probiotic supplement market. It’s “Nature Made” range of nutritional probiotic supplements has been among the most successful and visible brands in the dietary supplement, probiotics, and vitamin niche for decades.
Nature Made has several popular products such as Nature Made Omega 3-6-9 supplement, Nature Made vitamin supplements, Nature Made Melatonin, Nature Made Digestive Probiotics Ultra Strength Gummies, Digestive Probiotics Multi Strain 12 Ultra- Strength, Dual action probiotic energy b12. This Probiotics Review is not about Nature Made Dual Action but I will for sure test out Dual Action another time.
Nature Made Women Digestive Probiotic is not available at the company’s website or any other online retailer like Amazon. It seems the product is out of stock at most of these places. Other similar probiotics sold by the company are priced at around $39.75 per bottle of 60 capsules, which is worth 30 days supply.
Nature Made Women Digestive Strains / Ingredients
Nature Made Women Digestive Probiotics contain the following ingredients:
As you can see from the above list, this one contains a whole range of multivitamins, which in my opinion are unnecessary as most people buy probiotics to get healthy bacteria.
But this may be the right choice for someone who wants to buy a probiotic, which also contains multivitamins.
I was a bit disappointed to see it did not contain Bacillus Coagulans a strain found in Nature Made Dual Action and Digestive Advantage probiotics gummy.
I was happy to see that there was no glucose, syrup (like in dual action probiotic energy b12), or starch since I am trying to cut that out of my diet. They are also Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Vegan which I love.
My Experience With Nature Made Female Probiotic
I took this probiotic for 30 days and didn’t notice any significant effect, and this also didn’t help with my yeast infection (1). My bloating continued as before, and I felt that this is a weak probiotic as it proved entirely useless for me.
I didn’t change my regular diet during the days when I was taking this probiotic. That was because I already have a balanced and healthy diet, which doesn’t include red meat, fatty or fried foods, and junk food.
Nature Made Probiotic Side Effects
The only positive was that I didn’t feel any side effects. Other users report having stomach pain, irregular bowel movements, bloating, diarrhea and more after taking this probiotic (2).
I'm happy to say that only a small minority of users suffer from any side effect as the probiotic contains a low count of CFUs, which may not result in any severe side effect. If you would like to learn more about CFU Counts and more make sure to check out my Probiotic 101 Guide.
The first thing which I noticed after landing on the company’s website was their lack of SSL encryption, which is quite surprising for such a large company. Nowadays, most companies, especially the ones processing customer’s orders, use SSL. Customer’s often don’t trust websites lacking SSL certification with their credit card details.
Perhaps the fact that the company most often directs its visitors to Amazon can explain the lack of SSL encryption. They may have felt that they don’t need it. Nature Made has a no-question asked, 100% money-back guarantee, which is a substantial positive for their brand.
Any customer can request a refund directly from the company after answering a few questions about the product they bought. They can expect to get a full refund within a reasonable amount of time.
Nature Made Digestive Women’s Probiotic contains a large assortment of multivitamins, but this is not the primary reason why I bought this in the first place. I feel that the single probiotic strain used in this supplement is quite weak. This is further compounded by the fact that they have a low count of 10 billion CFU per serving, which is much lower than other similar probiotics in the market but a higher CFU count isn't always better.
It appears that the company has now discontinued this product. I can no longer find it anywhere on the internet since first trying it. Even Amazon and eBay are showing it as out of stock. There are several positive reviews, and other women have found it quite useful, although it didn’t work for me.
Nature Made is one of the most recognized and respected Probiotics Supplement manufacturer's in the industry and has been online for decades. But I also understand that even the best probiotics may not work for everyone. I’ll carry my search for the best female Probiotic since this Probiotic has also been discontinued.
