Probiotics {they are all not created equal}

I don't always believe all the hype around certain supplements unless I do some research on my own. Can you imagine what happens after Dr. Oz releases his new "must have" item to consume? Everyone rushes to the store. A Whole Foods clerk even told me once that it's insane the next day because everyone comes out hoping to get a quick fix. But, my question is this...Are they consistent in taking these items? Have they gotten their life "cleaned" up first? In my opinion it's a waste to pay for and take so many supplements until you have committed to make a difference in your health.

This brings me to a supplement that has changed my life for the better. The Probiotic. I've had IBS for as long as I can remember. I have had many tests ruling out anything major going on in my colon, stomach, and bowels.  I have always suffered with constipation, upset stomach, and bloating and figured it was just the way of life for me. Man, I'm glad I came to my senses (once my head was cleaned of all the highly processed food) and gave them a try.  

I went to drugstores and looked for hours for the perfect probiotic to take. WOW! It was not easy. Many of them had so many additives and I wanted one that was dairy and gluten free!  I really wanted to scream standing there in the aisle but I refrained.  

Which one is the right one??? Which one will work for me??? I left the store defeated and emailed my friend Ivy from Clean Cuisine and More and asked her which one is the best one.  At this point I didn't care how much it cost me, I wanted to try the BEST (for at least a month). She hands down suggested Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics. She's a smart gal, as it is the world's most popular premium probiotic supplement. With that said, I went online and shopped for the best price and waited patiently for them to arrive at my doorstep.  

Once they arrived the rest is history. I will forever be taking these probiotics. They ARE worth the cost. Within days I could see a huge improvement in my IBS symptoms.  I take these twice a day and can tell a big difference if I forget.  Since then, I have started both my kids on a children's probiotics and haven't heard a single complaint of stomach discomfort sense.  They both remind me to give them their vitamins and probitoics each morning.
