I didn’t know what to expect when I was accepted to the trial of Visbiome High Potency Probiotic. They had some extra questions for me on some of my symptoms as I don’t have an actual Irritable Bowel Syndrome diagnosis. I have gastritis which is an inflammation is the gastrointestinal tract. I’ve had constant nausea for well over a year and take a very strong anti-nauseat. I also have alternating boughts of constipation and diarrhea, so I have stomach pain often. So asking the extra questions to make sure that I would be a good candidate was pretty amazing on their part.
Probiotic definition: pro·bi·ot·icˌ

The packaging was pretty amazing. Normal box, with a cooler inside, with several cold ice packs and the bottle of the Visbiome High Potency Probiotic which was also in a ziplocked bag to protect the bottle. 112.5 Billion Bacteria per capsule kind of freaked me out because I had no idea that Probiotics and the live bacteria were the same thing. I had to go and check out what probiotics were as I wanted to make sure. When I first received them I had been sicker than normal so I wanted to wait until I actually tried the medication.
The prescribed dosage is two caplets daily. I found that taking them both together worked best for me. I don’t know if anyone else took them differently because I don’t read other reviews until after I write mine. My findings in taking them is that I’ve had much less constipation over the course of taking Visbiome High Potency Probiotic.

I have been putting off finishing writing this blog post because I’ve been embarrassed by writing about my gut health. I had a hard time writing that I alternate between constipation and diarrhea. Really it is a hard subject but I’ve always had this see-saw with my gastrointestinal tract, bowel, etc and have said that if I have diarrhea I won’t leave the house. Having a 30 days trial is so much better than just a couple days or a week. I thank Visbiome for the chance to try their product. I really think it has helped me with the constipation. I would love to try it for longer period of time to see how I balance out because I still have had lots of diarrhea boughts.
Visbiome is $50.00 for a 30 day supply of sixty capsules. They are cheaper if you buy a two pack at $92.00. They also have a powder formula available. If this sounds like something you could use you can check them out at Visbiome.com
I hope you enjoyed my view of Visbiome High Potency Probiotics.
