Nutrition-Essentials-Probiotic-Thumbnail

Like many other women in their mid-30s, I have started to learn about things like yeast infections and stomach issues. Our digestive system undergoes several changes, much like other parts of the body as we age (1). This can make us susceptible to various infections and stomach issues due to the decreasing ability of our immune system.

Like many others, I too turned to probiotics as have heard how probiotics can help people suffering from yeast infection (2) and stomach issues like IBS (3). After comparing several popular products, I decided to buy Nutrition Essentials Probiotic from Amazon, which is among the most highly rated probiotic products available in the market today. In this Nutrition Essentials Probiotic Review, I’ll share my personal experience with readers regarding this popular Probiotic supplement.

What is Nutrition Essentials Probiotic?

One Customer Complaining of Side Effects

The website or the product package doesn’t list any side effects. Just like when I tried Nature Made recently I didn’t suffer from any side effects after using this probiotic supplement. Although, several other users have complained of stomach ache after using Nutrition Essentials Probiotic and some others also claim to have nausea, and headache after using it continuously for a few days which is what Healthline said can happen with ProBiotics. Still, the vast majority of online reviews are positive, as only 2%-3% users suffered from any side effects.

How to Take Nutrition Essentials Probiotics?

One bottle of Nutrition Essentials Probiotics contains around 60 capsules, which are enough for 30 days at a dose of 2 capsules per day. You can take pills at any time as there are no specific instructions for taking this probiotic supplement.

Where to buy Nutrition Essentials Probiotics

You can buy Nutrition Essential Probiotics at Amazon or the company’s website here. The price per bottle is the same at $19.99 per bottle at both Amazon and Nutrition Essential website which is far cheaper compared too Thrive Naturals Probiotics which are $43.95. You need to initiate the checkout process to know about the shipping rate charged by the company as their shipping rates vary based on the delivery location.

Nutrition Essentials claims to ship their Probiotics to most locations in the world. Although, some countries may have restricted import of probiotics as there are specific import policies in place to regulate the import of medical items and probiotics.

Pros

  • Quite a cost-effective solution at the price of $19.99 per 60 capsules
  • Seems to work in a large number of cases
  • Uses a single strain of probiotic
  • Low CFU count may be beneficial for users who are allergic to high doses of probiotics
  • Can help with a large number of stomach disorders and ailments
  • The company offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, which allows you to return the product within 30 days of purchase.

Cons

  • Some people complain of severe stomachache after taking Nutrition Essentials Probiotics
  • Many users claim that it didn’t work for them due to the low number of CFUs
  • Others seem to have got more benefit by using multiple strain probiotics
  • There is no information available either on the website or the product label about the possible side effects
  • No information about possible allergies
  • A large number of users also suffer from temporary bloating, gas, nausea after using the product for the first time. While the company warns about this, many users complain that they suffer from the symptoms as mentioned earlier permanently and not temporarily as claimed by the company

Final Thoughts

Nutrition Essentials probiotics is an excellent product from a well-established brand that has helped thousands of people suffering from gastrointestinal issues in the past. Although, I was unable to treat my yeast infection after using this product but felt a bit relieved from other stomach issues after using it for a month.

I also suspect that the use of a single strain along with low cell count may be responsible. This is because both these factors make this a much less powerful probiotic as compared with other products available in the market.

Many other probiotics offer multiple strains along with 50-60 billion CFUs as compared to the single strain and 15 billion CFU count of Nutrition Essentials. You can also buy these more powerful probiotics at the same or even cheaper prices.

I’m not saying that Nutrition Essentials is not a useful or good product; it’s the right choice for a person if it works for him or her. But in my case, I was unable to see significant improvement in my condition. In light of my personal experience, I’d advise users to look for other probiotics, which may prove to be more helpful in treating yeast infections.

You can quickly find more effective probiotic dietary supplements after a little bit of research online. More and more companies are now offering probiotic supplements that are aimed at helping people suffering from stomach disorders and infections. I have found one great one already that has helped with my yeast infection
