I’ve always had tummy issues: from occasional gas pains to bloating and indigestion. Believe me, tummy issues are no fun. People have recommended probiotics to me on several occasions but there are so many on the market, it’s hard to decide which to try. When I had the opportunity to review Number One Probiotic by Number One Nutrition, I jumped at the chance.
The pill is not very large, it’s about the size of a typical vitamin, so it wasn’t hard to swallow at all. That’s about all the positive I have to share. I didn’t notice any real benefit while taking this probiotic. However, two different things happened that may have been caused by this supplement.
First, I had an episode of the very worst stomach cramps I’ve ever had. This was not in the first days of taking the supplement, I was about three weeks in, but nothing else can explain the stomach cramps. I’m not positive they were caused by the supplement but I didn’t eat or do anything abnormal leading up to the cramps.
Second, I have been having mild headaches with some regularity. I have a severe reaction to MSG and this product contains Maltodextrin which, according to my research, may contain MSG.
I don’t have any concrete evidence that this supplement caused these issues but I don’t think I will continue using it.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
