Is A Daily Probiotic Supplement Right For You?

Flu season is just around the corner and with the coronavirus still spreading throughout the country, it is more important than ever to take care of yourself. Eat right, exercise, get plenty of rest, and don't forget to get your flu shot! 😉


No matter how hard you try to eat a healthy and balanced diet, however, sometimes it just seems impossible to get all the nutrients you need. Pregnancy and menopause can place extra demands on your body and it only makes sense that as your body goes through these different phases, that your nutritional needs change, too! Pregnant women should take prenatal vitamins but what should peri-menopausal and menopausal women do?



Do you need supplements? Do they even work? These are some of the questions you may be asking yourself. Ongoing research shows some supplements can have striking health benefits,” says William Li, MD, author of Eat to Beat Disease. “For example, a supplement formulation called AREDS may reduce the risk of vision loss from a condition called age-related macular degeneration. Fish oil supplements containing omega-3 fatty acids can lower risk factors for heart disease, and supplements containing prebiotics and probiotics are looking like they may be future game-changers for health as we begin to understand how our gut microbiome defends us against chronic diseases.”

As mentioned above, menopause is a big life change that brings stress on our bodies and it is beneficial to have a good support system in place. *MenoLabs is a cruelty-free brand that offers women specially formulated probiotic supplements related to menopause. Their mission is simple: They are committed to meeting the needs of women by delivering the best boutique menopause support supplements with the highest quality, 100% natural ingredients. With 20+ years of research, MenoLabs has a supplement to help you get your life back and be the best version of yourself again. 


I have been using MENOGUARD Immune Support for the last few months and have been feeling great! My energy level is up and I like the addition of prebiotics and probiotics to support my gut health.

  1. I always take a probiotic when I am prescribed antibiotics. It helps calm my stomach. I currently take a daily multi-vitamin since I don't always eat right.

  6. I used to take probiotics but I can't because I have ulcerative colitis. For whatever reason, it irritates it into a flare

    1. Oh no! Sorry to hear that, Katherine. There are so many probiotics/live bacteria out there so it would be hard to say what could have happened. Something clearly didn't agree with your colitis which is too bad. I would think probiotics would help and not hurt.

  15. I take Vitamin D and B12. My system was really low on them and I'm glad they are back now in the normal range. I will still keep taking them. They do make a difference.

    1. I agree, Tammy. I'm glad you are back in the normal range on your numbers especially during the pandemic. I've heart low levels of Vitamin D can make you more susceptible to Covid. I'm not a doctor but I do recall Dr. Fauci saying something to that effect.
