Recently, a super nasty stomach bug swept through our house! And it was a bug of the worst kind! Ewwww! I can handle lots of “yucky” stuff. Bugs, worms, poop (we just had to deal with LOTS of that with potty training), snot, blood & guts (I did A LOT of dissecting with my biology background), but this mama does NOT handle vomit well! I try to avoid it at all costs. In fact, before I was pregnant with Big Brother (I was 26), I hadn’t thrown up since 8th grade! Yes, really! I.HATE.IT! So, I especially dislike it when any stomach/GI bugs strike! And, I really disliked it this time, because I was SUPER sick—-sicker than anyone else and sicker than I had been in a long time!! That was NOT a pleasant weekend!
With Big Brother now in preschool two days a week, the germ exposure is HIGH! And, I’m really hoping to do whatever possible to help keep us healthy, and especially avoid anymore of those nasty GI bugs! So, we’re ramping up our vitamin consumption. And, we’re adding probiotics! We’ve taken probiotics before, but usually just for a short period of time when someone has been sick or while on antibiotics. This time though, I’d like to make them more of a routine!
So, we’re doing just that with ProNutrients by Centrum! They have a whole line of supplements that are designed to take with your daily multivitamin. I’m curious about the Fruit & Veggie one. But, for right now, we’re just giving the probiotics a try!
You can get a $3 off coupon on the ProNutrients site or the Centrum ProNutrient facebook page. So, with coupon in hand, we headed out on a trip to Walmart to pick some up. (You can see the full shopping trip here on thisMoment). With it being a new product, I thought I might have some trouble finding it, but not so! There was a whole display right on an end cap in the pharmacy with a eye-catching video screen.
I love that the ProNutrient Probiotics come in packet form. Super easy for sprinkling on food and great for those that don’t like taking a pill! So, we’ll see how it goes!
