What I Learned From Tracking My Health

What I Learned From Tracking My Health

Months ago, I created my very own book that combined a health tracker and daily planner all in one. I did this because I wanted to be able to do these two things daily without having to get two different books.

I am coming up on a year of using these and it has been pretty eye opening for me. In this post, I will be discussing what I have learned about myself in the past five months.

What health stuff I track and why

Ever since about two weeks after I had COVID-19, I have experienced many different symptoms that can be attributed to post-viral syndrome (I have a whole post about that). I am also really sensitive to hormonal fluctuations which has caused uncomfortable symptoms. These two things combined have greatly disrupted my life.

After a couple months of the post-COVID symptoms, I decided that I was going to start tracking how I felt each day. I began tracking my mental/physical status, the food/supplements I consumed and what day I was on in my menstrual cycle. I have kept up with doing this since then.

The reasoning behind tracking everything has been to see if there are any correlations and/or causations. Finding any may help me figure out how to fix things or be able to anticipate things happening so I am prepared.

What I have learned from tracking my health

As I stated above, tracking has been eye opening. Looking over these five months and analyzing everything has made me realize that I am not out of the woods yet with the post-COVID and menstrual cycle issues.

Here are the things that I have learned:

Post-COVID/general-

  • May-June were horrible overall. I had lots of bouts of my post-COVID crud (GI, neurological, respiratory and heart issues). I guess I was too proud to admit that the symptoms didn’t totally go away.
  • I am groggy on days without vitamin B12.
  • Allergy-type symptoms (itchy nose, swollen throat, itchy skin) are a regular thing for me. I believe this is another post-viral annoyance combined with a mast cell issue.
  • I will randomly have actual cold-like symptoms about three days out of the month. I have gone to get drive-through PCR swab tests but they are always negative. This must be a post-viral thing, too.
  • I was taking turmeric and Aspirin because I read that they can have health benefits that are needed during the pandemic. Things were going good with them for a while but within the past few months they started to mess with my GI system. I am no longer able to consume them.
  • My mental state consists of being happy and motivated most of the time.
  • I have developed heat stroke symptoms whenever I try to mow the lawn for some reason.

Menstrual cycle-

Before I start with the list, I wanted to give an explanation of the “GI and mental distress times” that you will see on it. This is when I get extremely anxious, upset, worried and experience horrible stomach issues (pain, bloating, nausea and sometimes loose stool) all at the same time.

Here are some general things about my menstrual cycle symptoms:

  • Since taking the full dosage of Claritin everyday starting in early July, my GI and mental distress times have reduced greatly. They don’t last for more than 1.5 hours and I am able to just breath through them most of the time.
  • Any hormonal nausea I do get that is too intense for me is taken away by red raspberry leaf tea and half of a Meclizine tablet.
  • The length of my cycles switched from 27 days to 31 days and then back to 27 again. I am not sure why this happened. PCOS maybe?

My last two cycles yielded pretty much the same symptoms on all 27 days of them. Here is a play-by-play of what I experienced during them-

  • Days 1-4: Menstrual cramps (days 1-2), fatigue, mild headache, low appetite, post nasal drip, happy and focused.
  • Days 5-8: Itchy eyes, post-nasal drip, happy, motivated, focused and bloody gums.
  • Days 9-11: No physical symptoms, happy and motivated.
  • Days 12-15: Leg aches, bloating, appetite increase, lightheadedness upon standing, ovary aches (day 14), GI/mental distress time (day 15), happy most of the time and bouts of sadness.
  • Days 16-19: Appetite increase, good energy for workouts, irritable at times, happy at times and easily startled.
  • Days 20-23: Lightheadedness at times, irritable at times, happy most of the time, some bloating and not enough energy to workout on day 22.
  • Day 24-27: Tender breasts, nesting, neck aches, nausea (day 26), smell of blood in my genital area, insomnia, some bloating, rumination, irritability and night sweats.

The main takeaway

What I take from all of this information is that I have some health issues that I probably won’t be cured of. All I can do is keep managing my symptoms so that my life is not disrupted further. Things have been going pretty good lately and I want that to continue on.

Do any of you track your daily health symptoms?

Zinc: What It Can Do for Hormones

Zinc: What It Can Do for Hormones

Many women/non-binary people with hormonal conditions are willing to try a lot of things to reduce or eliminate the accompanying symptoms of them. While there are medical interventions that exist, some are still interested in going the supplement route.

Zinc is one of the supplements that is said to possibly help with hormonal conditions and we are going talk all about it in this post!

Introduction to Zinc

Zinc is one of 118 chemical elements with an atomic number of 30. It is essential for living things due to the roles it has in keeping organisms healthy. In humans it is responsible for regulation and helping with the proper functioning of various systems.

The human body stores it in various places (i.e. organs and cells) but it is not found naturally in us. To obtain zinc, we need to either get it from food and/or take a supplement.

This mineral is used for industrial, supplemental and topical (ointments and creams) related purposes.

In terms of supplements, zinc comes in different types. These include gummies, liquids, lozenges, capsules and tablets. Some of them have the zinc combined with other minerals/vitamins or it is by itself.

There are several forms of zinc which include acetate, gluconate, picolinate, orotate, sulfate and citrate. These forms differ when it comes to absorbability, price and what it could specifically do for our health.

In terms of food, zinc is found in a variety of things. The foods with the highest amount of it include beef, pork, oysters, tofu, chicken, cashews, oatmeal and mushrooms.

Zinc and hormonal conditions

Zinc supplementation has shown to have some positive effects when it comes hormonal issues that plague many women/non-binary people. This is said to possibly be because of zinc’s ability to regulate hormones.

. The following are the hormonal related issues that supplementing with zinc may help with:

  • Fertility- Studies suggest that zinc may help shorten the time that it takes to get pregnant.
  • Metabolic syndrome in people with PCOS- A sufficient amount of zinc is essential for insulin regulation and for having a proper response to it. It also reduces glucose and triglyceride levels. Getting all of this under control reduces the risk for things like diabetes and heart disease.
  • Painful menstrual cramps- This problem is also called, dysmenorrhea. It is very common and can get in the way of having a quality life. Studies show that zinc has anti-inflammatory actions that may prevent and treat the painful cramps.
  • PMS- For some women, the levels of zinc get lower in the luteal phase (after ovulation and the two weeks before your period starts). Getting one’s zinc levels up during this time may reduce the brain sluggishness, mood swings and bad sleep.
  • Acne-The anti-inflammatory action that zinc has may help with the acne that can come with hormonal issues.
  • Excess hair- Many people with PCOS have too much androgens which then causes excess hair to form in unwanted areas (i.e. upper lip and chin). Zinc is shown to have anti-androgen effects so it may help reduce the amount of hair that is grown.

The above reasons are why quite a few professionals (the ones that are okay with supplements) that specialize in women’s/non-binary health recommend zinc supplementation for hormonal issues.

Magnesium and calcium are two other supplements that are touted as being great for hormones. Luckily, you can find products that contain all three things in one! An example of a combination product is this one by Solaray.

The dosage for zinc should be no more than 50 mg per day to avoid negative side effects. These uncomfortable effects include GI issues, chest pain, fatigue and headaches.

Other things zinc can do for our health

There are quite a few other things that zinc is said to possibly do for us. They are as follows:

  • Increase the strength of our immune systems.
  • Improve the frequency and severity of acne.
  • Improve age related vision loss.
  • Reduce signs of ADHD if taken with prescription medication.
  • Shorten lengths of colds.
  • Improve low moods.
  • Improve brain fog and memory issues.
  • Improve smell and taste ability.
  • Heal bed sores and diaper rash when applied in cream form.
  • Help with male fertility issues.
  • Help improve metabolic syndrome markers.

As with any supplement, the benefits of zinc are not definitive. However, there is a lot of good evidence for them.

Our favorite supplements

My husband and I both take zinc. I had stopped for a while but ever since I did more research on it- I have started taking it again. This is partly because I noticed that my cramps got worse when I stopped taking it (I use a health journal everyday!.

If you have a sensitive stomach, the lozenges I use are a great option. You can find them here.

My husband does not have a sensitive stomach by any sense of the word. Because of this, he is able to take a larger dosed pill from Nature’s Bounty that may be hard on some people’s stomach. You can find the product here.

Zinc may be the thing to try

If you are struggling with hormonal problems, you could give zinc a try. It may not cure you but it could end up helping you a little bit.

Are any of you taking zinc? If so, what do you feel it is doing for you?

Sleep Is Important for COVID-19 + REMfresh Review

Sleep Is Important for COVID-19 + REMfresh Review

Whether you believe COVID-19 is a hoax or not- it is affecting a lot of people in various ways. I have been one of the people affected by it so it is very real to me.

If you are a believer in the virus and you have read articles that come out on it-you may be wondering about all of the things you can do to keep yourself healthy and protect yourself against it. Getting good sleep is one of these things!

In this post, I will be talking about how important sleep is and giving my review of product that helps with sleep.

All that is in our arsenal

When we talk about having an arsenal in regards to COVID-19- it is obviously not weapons or anything like that. It is just tools that we have right now that can possibly mitigate COVID-19’s impact on us.

These aforementioned tools are as follows:

  • Taking care of our mental health.
  • Keeping and maintaining social connections.
  • Consuming healthy foods and staying hydrated.
  • Engaging in regular exercise.
  • Mask wearing.
  • Getting good sleep.
  • Getting vaccinated (a controversial thing).
  • Social distancing.
  • Washing hands.
  • Gathering outdoors to minimize exposure.
  • Having proper ventilation indoors.
  • Disinfecting and sanitizing as necessary.

The above list shows things that people really should consider doing during this pandemic and beyond (for some of them).

Why is sleep part of our COVID-19 arsenal?

Lets not get too technical with this…

Adequate sleep is imperative when it comes to having a healthy life. It does wonders for us!

Why is it so important? Because our minds and bodies need it. These two things do so much to keep us alive and they need breaks regularly. This ensures that everything keeps running properly.

The immune system is one of the things that may be impacted by lack of sleep. This is due to the immune system processes that happen in our bodies while we sleep. We need these to happen in order to keep being able to fight off infections and inflammation.

Since COVID-19 is raging, it is important to have a well-working immune system and sleep can help with that.

In addition to lack of sleep affecting the immune system, it can also affect the following things:

  • Mood: Lack of sleep may leave a person stressed out, irritated, grumpy etc.
  • Concentration: With a brain that hasn’t been refreshed from an adequate amount of sleep- it may be hard to concentrate on things. This might mean that a person’s productivity and work quality will suffer.
  • Weight: Lack of sleep may cause weight gain. This is possibly due to our metabolism being lower when sleep deprived, an increase in blood sugar occurring and/or the increased chance of overeating due to being awake more.
  • Physical energy: If one is sleep deprived, they may not have enough energy to workout regularly and/or be active.

Our immune system then takes even more hits when our moods are low, weight is up too much and we aren’t exercising enough.

In short, get some sleep every night!

How to get enough sleep every night

Getting good sleep is easier said than done for many people.

Numerous medical professionals state that adults ages 18 and older need around seven to nine hours of sleep each night. This can be tough to get for the following reasons:

  • You like to use your phone/computer/watch TV right before trying to sleep: The light from electronic screens can excite our brain and make it difficult to wind down.
  • You take caffeine too late in the day: Some people are sensitive to the effects of caffeine and end up not able to sleep at night because of it.
  • You workout too late: Exercise can rev a person up which makes it difficult to sleep if you have do it late in the evening.
  • You have a sleeping disorder: There are some disorders that cause issues with sleeping. These include insomnia, narcolepsy, sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome.
  • Your mental health is suffering: Whether it is for a brief period of time or chronically-mental health issues can cause trouble with sleeping.

No matter what the reason is, you should work on your sleep hygiene. This is so you can reap the benefits that sleep has for us. The following is a list of things that may help you sleep better and for longer:

  • Clean up your diet: Eating too much sugar and unhealthy foods may make your sleep quality not as good as it could be.
  • Take caffeine earlier in the day or decrease the amount you take.
  • Seek out medical help: If poor sleep is a chronic problem, medical help may be needed.
  • Try a melatonin supplement.
  • Establish a night time routine that includes turning off screens at least 30 minutes before trying to go to bed.
  • Wear comfortable clothing to bed.
  • Make sure the mattress, pillows and bedding are actually comfortable enough for you.
  • Try some sleep meditation or hypnosis videos on YouTube.
  • Put on some relaxing ambience videos.
  • Put fans on in the room.
  • Read a book with a book light while laying in bed (it works for a lot of people!). The light linked below is a wonderful option.
  • Work on your mental health if it is getting in the way of sleeping well.
  • Try some relaxing tea a while before you get into bed. Yogi Tea brand offers some great relaxation teas if one likes or is willing to try drinking it.
  • Use a weighted blanket: Some people feel relaxed when they have pressure on them. The weighted blanket option linked below provides just the right amount of pressure and is very comforting.

There may be other things that can help you get better sleep. It is important to find something that works as we need to have good immune systems right now (and any other time!).

REMFresh review

I have been working on my sleep hygiene as I want to be as healthy as possible-especially during this pandemic. Sleep has been an issue for me in the past but I have gotten much better with it.

I have tried taking melatonin before and it did not sit well with me at all. No matter what dosage or brand- I always got some stomach issues and moodiness the next day.

Despite the side effects, I have kept wanting to take a melatonin supplement. This is not only for it helping with sleep but also because it has anti-inflammatory effects. There has even been some buzz about it possibly being a treatment option for COVID-19.

I actually did a post on melatonin before. Shortly after it publishing it though, I had to quit taking the supplement again due to how it was making me feel.

I found REMfresh on one of my searches for melatonin as I wanted to try taking it for the thousandth time. This is a product I had never seen before and I was rather intrigued by its description.

What sets REMfresh apart from regular melatonin supplement products is that it uses technology (“ion-powered”) that allows for it to be continuously released for up to seven hours. The company says that you get full absorption of it which is allegedly not something that happens with other melatonin supplements.

REMfresh also makes the claim that it uses a kind of pure melatonin that comes from Western Europe and is only unique to their product. This and the ion-powered technology are said to eliminate the side effects that other melatonin products can cause.

REMfresh comes in different dosages. These include Lite (.5 mg), Advanced (2 mg) and Extra Strength (5 mg). Just like with all melatonin supplements- you are to take it 30-60 minutes before you want to fall asleep.

The Lite version is for younger people and ones who are sensitive to melatonin supplementation. I chose that one to buy because I obviously do have a sensitivity to it.

I was pretty eager to start using it and I did so the very night that I got it. My decision was to be in bed around 10:00 PM so I took the melatonin at 9:00 PM. I honestly did not have high hopes for it because other products have not worked for me before.

At about 9:45 PM, I definitely noticed a tired feeling. It wasn’t a bad, groggy type of tired or anything like that. More of a calm feeling. I got into bed and fell asleep very quickly.

The next day I woke up at around 8:00 AM, refreshed as all get out! I couldn’t believe it. No grogginess, no mood issues and no stomach discomfort. I tried it again the next night with the same results.

I plan on using this product regularly from now on and I am so glad that I found it.

If you are looking to start a melatonin supplement, I would highly recommend REMfresh!

In conclusion

Getting enough sleep is very important for a healthy life. With COVID-19 surging in most places, it is crucial that we rest our bodies every night for at least seven hours (and more if you are under 18). Doing this may possibly help us fight off this novel virus (and any other one) better.

How is your sleep hygiene? Do you get at least seven hours of sleep a night?

Scone Recipe Try-Out + A Life Setback

Scone Recipe Try-Out + A Life Setback

Recently, I have been having a rough time with some physical issues. I was doing really well for a while and then…bam! I get hit with the same crap I have had to deal with before.

As sad as this sounds, the only thing good about the past few days has been the scone recipe I tried out.

For this post, I will be reviewing the recipe and talking about my recent health problems.

The scone recipe

I was doing a scroll through of the foodgawker site again and I came across a wonderful scone recipe. I used to love making scones so this one really caught my eye.

The scone recipe comes from Chisel & Fork. It includes bacon, cheddar and chives. Sounds yummy right?

Well it was! I mean, holy cow.

They were super easy to make (in my opinion) and smelled wonderful in the oven. I was worried that they were going to be bland but I was totally wrong about that. They came out really flavorful and filling.

These did not last long at all in my house due to the deliciousness of them. They are not low carb, low calorie, low fat, vegan, vegetarian etc. but I was able to fit them into my diet just fine.

If you like scones and enjoy baking, I highly recommend trying these!

My life setback

As I already stated, I have been having some issues lately. I hate to admit it but for a few days I felt like I was back to the worst phase of my post-COVID adventure.

It all started with the last week of July where I had no tolerance for heat. I would go on a walk with my son around the neighborhood and struggle with the temperature outside. The temperature wasn’t even that high a couple of the days.

I also had a lot of trouble mowing which was easy before. Because of this, I would have to do parts of the yard on different days due to not being able to finish the whole thing.

Then, it all came to a head three days before typing this post.

I was trying to workout as usual and I realized that I just could not get through the cardio portion or the weightlifting. Breathing was really difficult and there was a weird tickly feeling in my chest. I also felt lightheaded.

I ended up having to lay down because I thought I was going to pass out. My heart rate was accelerated at 140 bpm even in this position. I felt awful!

I wasn’t even able to shower that night (gross I know) and had to have my husband do all of our son’s cares. Not only was my heart racing but I still had shortness of breath and lightheadedness as well.

I tried going to sleep but I just could not breath well enough to do so. This led me to not sleeping at all that night which didn’t help the way I felt. I did end up getting a nap in the next day though.

Ever since then, I have been having these symptoms (shortness of breath, accelerated heart rate and lightheadedness). I took a COVID-19 test which came out negative but I am told it could be a false negative. The problem with this is that there is absolutely no way I could have gotten exposed to the virus in the past few weeks due to my husband being on vacation from work and us literally not leaving our property for the entire time.

The only exposure I could have gotten to the virus would have been when going to the mailbox or on a walk (with no one around). I always wear goggles and two masks (N95 with a cloth mask over the top) just to step out of the door of our house so if this is the way I got it-the virus particles must have lingered in the air got around my masks.

That theory seems a little crazy to me though. I am sure not many people have to put on PPE just to take a few steps outside in a quiet neighborhood, right? If that is the way to get the COVID-19, then I feel like it is even more transmissible than we realize it is-and even more people would be getting it.

I have been thinking that I must be having a POTS/post-COVID flare-up that is lasting for several days for whatever reason. While I hate that I can’t workout hard like I am used to doing- I need to ride this out and get better again. I will be doing some weightlifting without the cardio bursts and light walking workouts on my cardio day.

What has been helping

For the past two days, I have actually found some relief. This is due to some things I have been doing/using. Here is a list of them:

  • Indulging in some salty snacks- I have been eating some chips and pickles in moderation. Throughout this flare-up or whatever it is, I have experienced salt cravings so I think that is why doing this has helped.
  • Laying under a weighted blanket- I love pressure on me. The comfort that the weighted blanket brought me definitely helped while I was laying down with a racing heart.
  • Gatorade- Sipping on this when I didn’t want to eat the salty snacks helped me and was a good substitute for them.
  • Increase of water intake- I am not good about getting fluids in so I think increasing my intake to four cups a day helped.
  • A good book and crypto quote puzzles- Being able to take my mind off of how weird/bad I felt has been a good thing.
  • Fitness watch and blood pressure cuff- These haven’t relieved any symptoms but they are helpful to have when it comes to keeping track of my heart rate and blood pressure.

If you are reading this and have POTS symptoms- consider trying these things. They may help you too!

This too shall pass

This isn’t the worse setback one could experience but it definitely has been a bummer for me. I will get through it though.

If you experience POTS and/or long-COVID symptoms- consider joining the many support groups out there for them. You can reach out to me, too!

Thanks for reading! Please stay safe out there, things are getting bad with this new variant. Do the things that can reduce your risk- distancing, masking, handwashing, exercise etc.

An Amazing Probiotic: Tummy Tuneup from Beeyoutiful

An Amazing Probiotic: Tummy Tuneup from Beeyoutiful

I have had gut problems for many, many years now. In the past few years, I have read about probiotics and how they may be able to help.

When looking up probiotic products to buy way back when, I came across the Tummy Tuneup probiotic. After reading more about it, I decided to try it out.

In this post I will be talking about the probiotic product and giving my review of it.

What probiotics are

Probiotics are live bacteria and yeast. Bacteria may sound like a bad thing, but there are actually good ones that exist. It is important for us to have these in our guts.

There are different species and strains of bacteria that fall under two different genera. The two genera are called bifidobacteria and lactobacillus.

There is a very large number of strains that come from the species. Some of them have been researched more than others and those are the ones that you will find in probiotic products.

Here are a few examples of strains:

  • Bifidobacterium lactis UABla-12
  • Bifidobacterium longum BB536
  • Bifidobacterium animalis DN-173-010
  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1

All of the researched strains have been shown to do slightly different things to our health. In probiotic products, there might be several of the strains or just one. Because of this, the label will usually state how the product can help you.

While there is some conflicting evidence about the benefits of probiotics, many people still take them and get positive results. The following are some things that probiotics are touted as being able to do for us:

  • Help with digestion
  • Help with abdominal pain
  • Help with bloating
  • Help with GI side effects from antibiotics
  • Stop bad bacteria in it’s tracks
  • Reduce gassiness
  • Help with yeast infections
  • Helps with constipation
  • May reduce cholesterol
  • May help with loose stools
  • May help with acne and other skin conditions
  • May reduce cavity incidence

There can be some side effects when it comes to taking probiotics. They are as follows:

  • Gassiness
  • Bloating
  • Loose stools
  • Increase of mast cell issues (histamine responses)

The side effects are usually temporary for most people. If they seem to last more than a couple weeks, you will probably want to stop taking them.

Probiotic supplements come in powder packet, pill/capsule, chewable tablet and liquid form. There is no standard recommended dosage for probiotics so products will say something different in regards to how much to take.

Probiotics are also found in food. The following ones have the highest amount of them:

  • Sauerkraut
  • Kefir
  • Yogurt
  • Pickles
  • Gouda cheese
  • Swiss cheese

Tummy Tuneup probiotic

This probiotic product is made by a company called, Beeyoutiful. The products they sell are health and personal care related and are all natural. You will find items such as the following:

  • Skincare products (face and body)
  • Makeup
  • Deodorant
  • Probiotics
  • Vitamins
  • Herbal blends
  • Tea
  • Toothpaste and mouthwash
  • Essential oils

The Tummy Tuneup product is one of Beeyoutiful’s four probiotic options. It contains eight different strains. The total amount of strains per serving is four billion CFU (short for colony forming unit).

The types of strains included in Tummy Tuneup are as follows:

  • Lactobacillus acidophilus La-14
  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus Lr-32
  • Bfidobacterium lactis Bl-04
  • Lactobacillus salivarius Ls-33
  • Bfidobacterium longum Bl-05
  • Streptococcus thermophilus St-21
  • Bfidobacterium bifidum Bb-02

According to the company, their Tummy Tuneup product is to calm and prevent the effects of bad bacteria in our guts. They claim that it can stop the bad bugs from taking hold and/or reduce the accompanying GI discomforts that they bring.

Beeyoutiful also states that it helps with immune system functioning. This is what many other probiotic products are stated to do on the labels.

Up to three servings per day is recommended. They should be taken right before meals or on an empty stomach. Tummy Tuneup comes in capsules and also chewable tablets for little ones. The capsules can be swallowed whole or unscrewed with the powder being dumped into your mouth (or mixed into something cold).

The capsules cost $34 for a 120 capsule bottle and $19 for a 60 capsule bottle. The chewable tablets cost $13 for a 60 tablet bottle. Both the capsules and tablets are to be refrigerated.

My review of Tummy Tuneup

I first came across this product on a mommy blog when I was looking for the best probiotic for me in 2016. The blogger had a lot of good things to say about it so I was very intrigued. I then looked it up on Amazon and saw some more wonderful reviews.

I was looking for something that would help my immune system, hopefully prevent stomach bugs that would most likely occur while working as an in-home daycare provider and help with digestion issues from certain foods. It sounded like Tummy Tuneup was the answer.

I ended up buying a bottle of 60 capsules to start out with. It came quick and I was very eager to start taking them.

On the evening that I took a Tummy Tuneup for the first time, I had eaten some Greek food that my stomach wasn’t fond of. I took one capsule to see if it would do anything at all.

Within an hour, my stomach was feeling much better! I didn’t know if it was just a coincidence or what but I was sold on them.

I have continued to take them off and on ever since 2016. There have been multiple products from different brands that I have tried, but I always come back to the Tummy Tuneups. They just help me so much more with GI stuff than other products do.

For the past few months, I have been unscrewing the capsules and dumping the powder in my mouth. This gets the good stuff into my system faster. The taste is not unpleasant as it is like crushed up cereal. I consume two capsules a day.

As long as the Tummy Tuneup product is created-I will be buying it.

Consider these!

If you find yourself looking for a probiotic product, think about getting a bottle of Tummy Tuneup. They have done wonders for me as well as many other people. The company also has a lot of other great products so look through those too!
