Naturelo Probiotic Review – Customer Results? (VEGAN)
As a sufferer of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) I have tried and tested many different probiotic products and supplements that are available on the market in an attempt to ease my symptoms. Probiotics are defined as good bacteria that are often found in your gut and are beneficial to the health of your digestive system and immune system.
Probiotics are frequently recommended to sufferers of IBS and other conditions that affect the digestive system, such as Celica, Crohn’s Disease, and Ulcerative Colitis. They are also used commonly to relieve more common symptoms such as constipation and diarrhea.
Probiotics are found in many foods, however most of these are dairy products, so if, like me, you have a vegan diet, you may want to purchase probiotic supplements, the same way you may use supplements containing vitamins such as protein and iron.
In this Naturelo Review, I will be detailing my experience with a popular probiotic supplement - the Probiotic from Naturelo.
What Is Naturelo?
Naturelo is a US-based company that operates mainly out of Seattle. The company has been operating since 2013 and has become very popular and well regarded. Naturelo provides a range of supplement products for adults and kids, from multivitamins to probiotics to Omega-3.
Their products come in capsule, powder and gummy form, and are priced reasonably, with the majority of their products coming in at less than $30 with frequent sales and special offers when you order from the official website.
Naturelo was founded on the principle that nutritional supplements should be as natural and free from synthetic ingredients as possible.
In addition to using natural ingredients, the company is proud of its associations with and charitable donations to Vitamin Angels, a non-profit organisation that provides vitamins to mothers and young children at risk of malnutrition.
Naturelo’s Probiotic supplement is one of their most popular products, and usually retails for $29.95, but at the time of writing, the company offers the product at a discounted price of $19.95, or just $17.95 if you subscribe to the mailing list.
Ingredients and Strains
The product contains 30 capsules (or a 1 month’s supply), or for $34.95 (at time of writing), you can get a version that contains 60 capsules.
I have made a list of the ingredients in each capsule here:
These are all strains of probiotic bacteria that have been proven to have beneficial health qualities. The capsules themselves are made from vegetable cellulose (rather than gelatine, an animal product which many supplement capsules are made of!) and non-GMO rice flour.
Not only are the capsules 100% suitable for vegans, but they are free of any GMOs, soy, gluten, dairy, sugar, yeast, corn, nuts, colorings, preservatives or flavorings!
One of the main selling points of Naturelo’s Probiotic supplement is that it contains 50 Billion CFU (colony-forming units, or live bacteria), which is a very high number compared to most other probiotic products on the market.
Because they were strong, I started slowly at just one capsule every two days, taken with a glass of water. As I had been warned, and tends to happen with probiotics in general, some symptoms got slightly more severe initially before getting better. After around three weeks, I began to notice a significant reduction in IBS symptoms.
Bloating and gas were less frequent and less severe than before, and bowel movements were regular and consistent, rather than alternating and unpredictable phases of diarrhea and constipation.
After I was confident that the initial side-effects had been replaced by relief from my symptoms, I started taking the recommended dose of one capsule every day, and positive results increased even further over the last week!
I have decided to order another month’s supply, and hope that the level of relief that I get from this product continues!
Naturelo ProBiotic Supplement Reviews
As I was first researching the product to decide if it was worth ordering, I saw that the user reviews were generally very good for this product!
Users detailed the “incredible results”, but many warned to start slowly, with some taking them on alternating days at first and others tipping some of the powder out of each capsule at first.
The likelihood of increased diarrhea during the first couple of weeks was mentioned, however, almost all users agreed that the benefits soon outweigh the initial drawbacks, and the product is currently rated at 4 and a half stars on Amazon, and is even marked as an “Amazon’s Choice” product!
Some of the 1-star reviews mention that the product is slow to take effect. The good news is though after about 1 month the positive results did kick in. Mary Ruth's is a Probiotic that provided faster results for me in my experiments.
As I mentioned earlier, like most probiotics, some of the symptoms of my IBS got slightly worse for a couple of weeks before they got better - I experienced a slight increase in diarrhea and some minor bloating and gas. (1)
However, after these had subsided, these symptoms reduced a lot, so in my opinion, it is certainly worth trying this product if you are willing to get through slight discomfort during the first couple of weeks.
The fact that the product is free from soy, gluten, dairy, eggs, fish, nuts, GMOs, and preservatives also eliminates the chance of side-effects associated with any of those ingredients and makes it ideal for vegans.
If you experience any side effects discontinue use immediately and consult a medical professional ASAP. I am not at a medical professional.
Overall, I would certainly recommend this product, not just for vegans like myself but for anyone looking for a good quality probiotic product.
The results really were great - this is why I included this product in my list of the best probiotic products of 2020!
