Member's Mark 4X Probiotic

It seems like I have been hearing more about probiotics, which are supposed to help support a healthy digestive system recently. Some of what I have heard, prompted me to do a little reading on the topic. From what I have read, I believe that I could benefit from them. Turns out we have these good bacteria in our intestines and when they are out of balance, you can have "side effects" - things such as indigestion and fatigue. Consuming probiotics are supposed to help rebalance the bacteria in your intestines.

Ever since I have had kids, my stomach seems to be more sensitive to the foods I eat. I find myself suffering from indigestion more frequently than I used too. As an example, I have to make sure I moderate tomato based products, so as not to be too uncomfortable. I'm not sure that taking probiotics to rebalance the good bacteria will resolve this, but I'm certainly willing to try.

You can find probiotics as part of foods and as supplements. It seems that there are quite a few products that contain probiotics - kefir and yogurts, as example. I have tried to use these products, but the challenge I have faced is consuming it daily. I'm not always hungry for yogurt, as example.

So, when I was given the opportunity to try Member's Mark 4X Probiotics, I was intrigued. Probiotics in a pill that I could take daily. That could work for me. I do remember to take a vitamin daily, certainly I could consistently take this product.
In order to try the product, I headed out to the local Sam's Club to pick it up.
Upon arrival, after checking out their bar stools, I headed over to the pharmacy area to find the Members Mark 4X Probiotic.
It took me a few minutes to find it, I looked first in the vitamin row, but found it one row over with some other supplements and protein shakes.
For only $28.88, I was able to pick up a Twin Pack, that in total contains a 3-month supply. That seems reasonable to me at less than $10/month.

In a couple of weeks, I will check back in and share my experience with the Member's Mark 4X Probiotic Digestive Care Supplement.
