Member's Mark 4X Probiotic -- Available Now at Sam's Club for Digestive Health Issues/Tummy Troubles (Review Post 1 of 2)

Have you ever seen that commercial with the little kid having tummy troubles?  It always makes me smile when I hear him say he has tummy troubles, as he is so gosh darn cute.  Well, prior to 2008, when I was diagnosed and treated for cancer, I never had "tummy troubles." But, since then, I have become lactose intolerant and have flair ups when I eat certain foods -- usually spicy foods.  Because of this, I need to make sure that I either include yogurt or a probiotic tablet in my daily regime in order to stay regular.  If you haven't been to the pharmacy lately or don't have "tummy trouble," then you don't know how many products are available on the market, that claim to help ease or get rid of your "tummy troubles"/digestive issues.  But, actually, how many of these really work?  It took trying several brand of probiotic tablets over the past 2 years to find one that really works for me.  And, then what happens, they either don't carry it at my local pharmacy or retailer, or the price goes up.  So, I have been on the search for a new product.  

While searching for a new probiotic option, I was approached by Collective Bias and MamaBzz to try out a new product available at Sam's Club, Member's Mark 4X Probiotic.  They wanted me to try the product for 2 weeks and then let you know how the product works and if I saw any improvements with my digestive health issues.  In addition, they wanted me to begin my journey with this product by sharing my story on why I wanted to try this product, as well as photos of my shopping trip to Sam's to purchase this product.  So, this is the reason for my blog post today.  

I know I am not the only one out there with digestive health issues.  As we age, we develop quirky digestive health problems that either we try to disregard or eventually end up seeking medical treatment or advice for.  My husband has no issue with his digestive tract, but he is conscious of his body and always looks to maintain general overall good health.  So, every other day he will either take a probiotic pill or eat yogurt.  He is also good when it comes to making sure he has enough fiber through breads or cereal in his diet.  

With my upcoming post that I will share next week, I will let you know if this new product, Member's Mark 4X Probiotic, available at Sam's Club actually worked for me, or if it was another dud.

As you can see from my trip to Sam's Club, I was able to easily find and locate Member's Mark 4X Probiotic in the pharmacy section.  And, like I said earlier, there are tons of other probiotic products out there, so you really have to be a savvy shopper and not always go for the high end product, because as I have found out they usually don't work, and you end up being out lots of money.

 Can't go to Sam's Club without stocking up!

 Checking out.

Stay tuned!
