Provella Daily Probiotics to Support Women's Health

College is a wonderful experience but it also can be an adjustment.  You’re responsible for your sleep, study, and eating habits.  Getting into a schedule of making smart choices for those habits can take awhile which can really wreck your system.  Add in the extra stress from writing all those papers (oh, and trying to have some sort of social life) and it’s surprising we make it through.

It should have been no surprise to me, then, when I started having digestive issues.  It got bad enough that when I was home on a break from school I went to the doctor just to be sure there wasn’t something wrong.  No, nothing wrong other than it’s a bad idea to live on pizza and three hours of sleep.  The surprising thing for me was that she encouraged me to start taking over-the-counter probiotics.

What Are Probiotics?

Not going to lie – I had no idea what probiotics even were at that point in my life.  But as her other suggestions – get more sleep, stress less, eat better – weren’t really possible at that point, I chose to give probiotics a try.  The results were a pleasant surprise.  My system basically returned to normal, with only the occasional flare up.

If, like it was for me, the word probiotics is new, you might be curious just exactly what they are.  Probiotics are not drugs or vitamins.  Rather, they are live microorganisms, usually (friendly or good) bacteria, which may benefit human health.  Although we often think of bacteria as germs, many actually help the body work properly.

How Provella May Help

Provella is one brand of probiotics that is formulated for women to promote digestive, feminine, and immune health.  The proprietary blend of six bacterial strains were chosen specifically for their maximum benefit to women.  It has been estimated that as few as 20-40% of certain probiotic bacteria survive passage through the gut but Provella helps protect its good bacteria from harsh stomach acid with it’s patented controlled-release technology.  Tablets are taken once per day by mouth either with or without food.  I drop mine into my daily vitamin box slots so I don’t forget to take them.

Provella can be purchased from drugstore.com and is also available at most pharmacies.  It’s generally stocked behind the counter though no prescription is necessary.  Just ask them for it.  Be sure to print this coupon for $6 off and take it with you when you go.

Five (5) winners will also each receive a 30-Day supply of Provella so you can try it for yourself.  Giveaway closed.

What other ways do you take control of your health?
