Provella Probiotic Dietary Supplement {5 Winner Giveaway}

Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Provella™. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

When I became a mother, every last bit of my attention was focused on my daughter.  I made sure that she ate well, took her vitamins, and was exposed to a well-rounded variety of people and activities.

However, I did very little to take care of myself.  I was so focused on caring for my little one, that I let many aspects of myself slip away.  The truth is, to take the best care of my daughter, I must take care of myself as well.  If I am sick, run down, or out of shape, then she isn’t getting the best of me.  That simply won’t do.

I declared this year to be “my year”.  I began by trying to change my attitude.  I tend to be a rather pessimistic person by nature, and have made an ongoing effort to see the bright side of things.  I am doing much better in this area, but will admit to slipping on multiple occasions.  By having a better attitude and trying to stay optimistic, I tend to be genuinely happier.

I also really began to focus on what I was eating.  I’ve never really paid too much attention to this before– I just ate whatever I like and whatever tastes good.  No, this doesn’t mean I eat ice cream and sweets all the time, it just means that I wasn’t as aware of ingredients.  I have began making an effort to eat more natural things and incorporate a variety of fresh foods into our diet.  We’ve actually discovered numerous foods that we love and now eat regularly.  For example, I never cared for broccoli or zucchini and now eat each multiple times per week.

Exercise has became an integral part of my day.  I used to push it off, saying I just didn’t have time.  After all, I am a busy mom!  However, I began to see that this was something I had to carve out the time for.  I began doing a program that requires 20 minutes per day, 3 days per week.  That’s just ONE hour a week, and I knew that I could figure out a way to fit that into my schedule.

Once I saw how good exercise made me feel and how much I loved those growing muscles, I began to exercise more.  I now generally exercise for at least an hour per day.  If I skip a day {which definitely happens}, I just feel like something is missing.

A few weeks ago, I also began to take Provella.  Provella is a probiotic dietary supplement that is designed for women that promotes digestive, feminine, and immune health.

Provella is NOT a vitamin or a drug.  It’s actually living microorganisms. Provella helps restore and maintain balance of good bacteria to support digestive and vaginal health.  Taken once daily by mouth with or without food, Provella tablets contain a proprietary blend of six bacteria strains that were chosen specifically for women, including several strains of Lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium bifidum.

So why exactly do we need a probiotic?  Well, good or “friendly” bacteria are permanent residents of body surfaces such as the skin, the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, and the tissues that line the vaginal walls. These good bacteria comprise the body’s normal flora.  Unfortunately, because of factors such as antibiotic use, changes in hormone levels, spermicides, and diet, normal flora can be easily disrupted which can negatively impact certain body functions. In the GI tract for example, an imbalance of friendly and unfriendly bacteria can lead to occasional gastrointestinal disruptions. Probiotics are one option that can be used to help reestablish the balance between good and bad bacteria.

Provella is unique in the world of probiotics as it contains a unique time-release technology. It has been estimated that as few as 20-40% of certain probiotic bacteria survive passage through the gut. Stomach acid is a major threat to probiotic survival. The patented controlled-release technology in Provella helps protect its good bacteria from harsh stomach acid and is designed to help ensure that active bacteria get to the intestines, where they can begin working.

Provella comes in tablet form and is to be taken once per day.  So, I simply take it each morning alongside my daily vitamin.  It’s gluten-free and is suitable for vegetarians, but it may contain trace amount of milk.  Provella may be stocked behind your local pharmacy counter.  However, no prescription is required.  You can also order Provella at drugstore.com.

I invite you to learn more about Provella and see if this dietary supplement is right for you.  You can watch this short video to see more about the different strains of bacteria in Provella and how it works.
