Nature’s Bounty Probiotic 10 Review
Among the large number of probiotic supplements out there, Nature’s Bounty Probiotic 10 capsules have come out as a leading option if you’re looking for good quality/price ratio, effectiveness, and diversity of the probiotic strains.
In this Natures Bounty Probiotic 10 Review, I will provide an overview of ingredients, my experience with the product, as well as best places to buy it for yourself.
Ingredients and Strains
Nature’s Bounty Probiotic 10 is a high-strength probiotic supplement produced out of 10 strains of probiotic and containing 20 billion live probiotic cultures.
This makes it really potent and helps it provide advanced support for your digestion, intestinal health and immune system.
Of the strains in this supplement, some studies claim Lactobacillus Acidophilus may be help to alleviate diarrhea, bloating, and gas.
This is a very potent strain of probiotic whose benefits may extend to other health areas such as being anti-inflammatory and even controlling levels of cholesterol. (1)
Another probiotic strain present in this blend is Bifidobacterium Bifidum. Studies have shown that this probiotic may have a beneficial impact on the immune system and can help ward off flu, and even treat bronchitis and other respiratory illnesses. (2)
While the ingredients list includes a proprietary blend for this supplement, which means that the exact details are not disclosed, knowing about the two strains above should give you confidence that this is a strong and effective probiotic supplement. Moreover, the number of active cells (20 billion per serving) suggest that this supplement can actually be used for specific concerns.
What about allergens and dietary requirements?
The capsules do not contain soy, gluten, wheat, fish, starch, sugar, or sodium. This makes them suitable for a lot of dietary restrictions.
Moreover, Nature’s Bounty Probiotic 10 capsules have no artificial colors or flavors added or sweeteners and preservatives.
The only negative is that there are milk ingredients in the make-up of this supplement. This makes it unsuitable for lactose intolerant people.
Finally, there is gelatin in the capsules, which is worth noting as a minor allergen. If you experience any allergic reactions you should discontinue use immediately and contact a medical professional immediately.
My Experience and Side Effects
I tried these probiotic pills for a few weeks, taking the recommended dose of 2 capsules once a day. They are easy to take and have no flavor. Over the short term, no particular changes were noticeable, other than the side effects I’ll describe below. However, after a few weeks, my digestion was on track and more regular than before, and I felt quite energetic and light, having got rid of some bloating.
When taking the Nature’s Bounty Probiotic 10 supplements, I needed a few days for the body to fully adjust to the potent strain of probiotics. The initial side effects included bloating, cramps and gas – all otherwise normal side effects of probiotics, depending on your digestive system.
Luckily, after a few days, the stomach cramps went away, which was a sign that my body adjusted to the supplement. It is worth noting that side effects were not severe, but of course, this does depend on everyone’s personal circumstances.
Finally, it is a good idea to take these capsules according to recommendations for some time, and then adjust the dose as it applies to you. Once your body starts to respond to the probiotic strains, you may be fine with more rare intakes, for example. (3)
Nature's Bounty Probiotic Reviews
My friend recommended Nature's Bounty to me for Vaginal health issues I was dealing with. I am happy to confirm that those issues are now resolved. I was also very happy with fast delivery and the packaging and product was clean. - PhillyMom
I have tried a lot of different Probiotics but Nature's Bounty is the one I keep coming back to. For me personally it has helped with my bloating and gas. It is great value for money and the Probiotic Strains work well with my gut with minimal side effects - MrsWells
I recently dealt with a bad bacterial infection that had to be treated with a lot of Anti-Biotics that completely wiped out all of the good and bacteria in my gut. I didn't feel the same after that physically and mentally but Nature's Bounty seems to have replenished my gut with good bacteria again. I am feeling just like my old self again. Happy and healthy. - Susan Goodwin
Where to Buy Nature’s Bounty?
Nature’s Bounty is widely available online and in shops, but shop around because prices vary. I picked it up at Costco for $25, buying a 60-capsule pack. You can also find it for this price in Walgreens. It's a lot cheaper than Gundry MD which I tried and reviewed last week.
Target and CVS also offer the supplement, and of course, you can get it on Amazon.
It’s worth noting that I haven’t seen any money-back guarantee either on the Nature's Bounty official website, or through resellers. This is surprising for a product that’s been marketed as high quality, high strength.
For a high-strength probiotic supplement, Nature’s Bounty Probiotic 10 works well and supports a strong digestion once you get over the initial side effects. While these were not great, they are part of the adjustment process to the probiotic strains.
However, it’s essential that you check with your doctor if you are safe to take this supplement, as both Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus can have serious side effects depending on your health, and they are also likely to interact with some other medication. This is why a double check with your doctor is critical.
This probiotic supplement has a fair price for its effects and benefits, and it can be considered above average. Some of the ingredients felt a bit cheap but overall, users from a wide variety of backgrounds report it to work well for various issues, which recommends Nature’s Bounty Probiotic 10 as a solid probiotic supplement.
