    • I started taking the probiotics soon after having my third child, whom I breastfeed. I’ve noticed a difference in my energy levels, I’m waking earlier and feeling refreshed in the morning and not sluggish as before. My energy is better throughout the day and my skin has been clearer, brighter and smoother. I’m ordering more as I really have felt the benefits of taking these probiotics and am starting my children on them also.

    • I’m really happy with the results so far from taking these probiotics. For the first 14 weeks of pregnancy my skin was so bad , after taking these for two weeks my skin has fully cleared up! I also have noticed I haven’t been bloated as I was before and have a lot more Energy. Fully recommend these!

    • I didn't start taking the tablets until I was about 28 weeks pregnant but I'm so glad I did. I really suffered with bloating and discomfort up until this point but after about a week of taking them this really improved. My stomach settled and I felt so much better. I'm also glad they are a vegan product as this is really important to me. I like that they are pregnancy specific as I felt safe that they were ok to use for me and my baby.
