This guy is my second child. He is my bounce-off-the-walls, full-of-energy, and lover-of-life, little guy. His love language is physical touch so he’s always touching, hugging, wrestling, or hanging on someone. His favorite thing to do is laugh, and to make people laugh, and he brings so much joy to our family. But he also has an issue with focusing, and at the age of four was having emotional breakdowns that had become an issue for our family. Something as small as the wrong color plate, or a change in our plans, would set him off and nothing would calm him down. At first, we thought it was the typical tantrums associated with his age, but our first son never had emotional issues to this degree. Discipline didn’t help, talking to him didn’t help, and to be honest, we were bewildered as we had never experienced this before. I noticed little things like he had started biting his nails obsessively, and as a toddler, he would get out of bed over and over again…I used to count each time he’d come out of bed and would quit counting at 30. I didn’t know is that probiotics can help so much with family wellness.
It didn’t take long to realize this was different, something he couldn’t control, and we needed to find something to help him. We wanted to avoid putting him on medication to help with his focus and emotional issues as long as we could so I began researching natural methods like removing red dye, limiting sugar and other diet restrictions, iodine deficiencies, etc. One thing that kept coming up in my research was probiotics. At the time I had started a business with Plexus, which focusing on probiotics and gut health, but I didn’t know that research shows that probiotics can help with focus issues and other mood and behavioral disorders. We talked with our Pediatrician and he agreed that probiotics could be a solution or at least reduce my son’s issues, and he approved us to give him the Plexus ProBio 5.
At the time my son was halfway through his PreK 4 year and we had a parent-teacher conference at his preschool. The teacher expressed a concern that he was behind in learning his letters and struggled to sit still long enough to cut and would be disruptive in circle time. She recommended that we hold him back if there wasn’t a big change. I had just started giving him the probiotic two weeks prior, and about a month later his teacher stopped me. She said “Whatever you are doing, it’s working. We are seeing a huge improvement in his ability to focus during assignments and during circle time, and he can now sit still to color and cut.” Happy tears!! I had seen a huge difference in his emotional state at home, and was overjoyed that his teacher had seen such a difference at school too. Fast forward, my son is now in 1st grade and we have been able to avoid prescription medication that can often alter their little personalities and come with long lists of side-effects!!
Yeast exists in your body naturally, but if your gut is out of balance, it can cause major problems (think: gas, bloating, fatigue, weight gain, mood swings, skin problems and allergies). Yeast imbalance can happen quickly and easily, caused by things like stress, excess sugar intake, and other environmental factors, as well as taking antibiotics. That’s why yeast needs to be balanced out by good gut microbes. These help create a healthy gut environment that helps protect against yeast imbalance. When your gut is balanced, your body’s digestive systems work better, and you feel better.
ProBio 5 contains beneficial enzymes and probiotics that work together to create an optimal gut environment. Enzymes work to break down cellular walls of plant-based foods and help digestion, enabling an increase in food nutrient value.
