Best Probiotic: MegaFood’s MegaFlora Review

As we all know, having beautiful skin is largely correlated by how healthy we are on the inside. Heck, I’d even say there’s causation. :) For this reason, I’ll be periodically blogging about good things to put in your body (such as the Mighty Green Smoothie).

Why Do I Need Probiotics?

Today it’s all about the probiotics.  I’m a huge proponent of taking probiotics to help rid your intestines of toxins, improve your immune system and help build up the healthy flora (to ensure you’re absorbing more of the nutrients in your food). A healthy digestive track is essential for a healthy (and beautiful) body.

My favourite brand is free of chemicals, pesticides, gluten, soy, corn and dairy – so it’s vegetarian (and human)-friendly. MegaFood’s MegaFlora is my favourite because it contains 100% Whole Food Nutrients and is made in the USA. I take mine first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach, with a glass of lemon water (a further detoxifying agent).

It is key to remember that probiotics contain live strains of bacteria, so it is important that you keep it in the refrigerator. On that note, if you are ordering online, be sure to pay for expedited shipping and ensure that the company provides appropriate packaging for shipment (iHerb ships in an iced Styrofoam package).

How Much?

You can find MegaFood products at most natural food retailers in North America. The 30 capsule bottle usually retails for around $30 CAD.

    I am taking Megaflora right now. Contracted C-diff from a stay in hospital. Should I even be taking this with antibiotics? Thanks for any info Dave

      Hi Dave, I’m not a doctor, so I won’t give any “medical advice”. I will note, however, that I have read it is OK to take them while on your course of antibiotics. Please speak to your doctor about this :)

    Can the capsules be split open and taken in water. I’m not a big fan of pill popping.

    Hey- just a heads up regarding the MegaFlora…I’m also a huge fan of this product. However, for best results it should not be taken with anything hot,acidic or citrus (lemon or orange juice) because that will kill some of the bacteria so you won’t get all of its benefits :)

    For now i’am taking Pepzin Gi and DGL for my esophagitis and mild gastritis. My question is can I include that on this two supplements I’m taking? Thank you.
