My Probiotic Experiment

I am an advocate for health, especially gut health! I have been following research on the gut microbiome for years, but I still had not found the right supplement for me. While there are hundreds of brands on the market, few supplements actually have research backing. I took Align (one of the brands with solid evidence) for three months, but I still did not see the results I hoped for.


While I don’t often share tons of personal health information, it’s important you know that I’ve always had funky gut issues resulting in the catch-all diagnosis of IBS. I mainly have flares during times of high stress, but it doesn’t usually get in the way of everyday life.

Given this, I feel like I am on a endless mission to find just the right combination of supplements, eating routines, and self-care practices. A few weeks ago, Silver Fern Brand reached out to me about their new Elevated Plan, which includes a Probiotic supplement. I have been taking the supplement for the past two weeks on a trial run. This has been such a crazy time of year–full of holidays, family, and deadlines! I have been surprised by how calm my gut has been. As a research-oriented student, I can’t say that the supplement entirely caused my improvements, but I can’t explain it with any other reason. With the support and the medical team behind the development of this supplement, I am not surprised!

I will keep you posted with any updates as I continue to take the supplement! Do you take a probiotic supplement? Have you had a good experience?
