As much as I love cooking and baking, my husband enjoys eating what I make. Because of lactose intolerance and digestive problems, that hasn’t been as easy for him over the last few years. Eating the foods he loves most, often results in terrible pain and discomfort, even preventing him from being able to sleep. For several years now, he has taken medication to alleviate this problem, so he can still enjoy family favorite dishes and desserts, but I have often wondered if the medication was only masking the symptoms and what the unresolved problems would do long-term to his health. The medication requires more than one dose per day and it is costly. Obviously, it was worth it, not to have him suffer just from sharing meals with our family. However, when I was given the opportunity to test Member’s Mark 4X Probiotic, I jumped at the chance. I was intrigued that it’s purpose was not to just relieve symptoms, but to help the body digest foods properly by providing the healthy bacteria necessary for the natural digestive process.
Member’s Mark 4X Probiotic contains 4 different strains of the beneficial bifodobacteria that aid in digestion — bifodobacterium infantis and a probiotic blend of bifodobacterium lactis, bifodobacterium longum, and bifodobacterium bifidum. These are the healthy bacteria that most of us just naturally have, in adequate amounts, but my husband, and many like him, don’t. The medication he used previously, had bifodobacterium infantis, but that was it. So, the 4X Probiotic contains three additional strains of benefical bacteria that my husband needed but was not receiving. Member’s Mark 4X Probiotic also has five billion live probiotic cells at the time of manufacture, as opposed to one billion in the product David used before. To seal the deal, Member’s Mark 4X Probiotic is time released, only needing to be taken once a day, and is a fraction of the cost we have been paying for the other medication. It was a no-brainer to give it a try, but the biggest, and really the only important question was, would it work?
After almost two weeks of using it daily, my husband is in heaven. He has literally eaten anything he wanted with no fear of pain or problems. Not only are we saving money, but he feels good and his health is improving by enabling his body to digest foods naturally — no chemicals or medications required. He’s a die-hard convert and we’re so grateful to have had the opportunity to try this amazing health care product.
