Hyperbiotics Pro-Women: Reviewed

I have been taking probiotics for several years now and used to take a small "pearl" shaped pill. It was convenient and easy to use without any need for refrigeration.  It was nice taking one tiny pill.  I hade used that brand for years, but decided to venture into other brands and see if I found something that suited me and my needs better.  I have tried other brands over the last year, searching for the perfect probiotic, and one brand that consistently exceeds the competition is Hyperbiotics.  I have tried several of their probiotic versions and each one is unique and targets a specific need.  The one I have been using the past 3 weeks is Hyperbiotics Pro-Women.

This probiotic company is is unique in that they do not just create one type of pill.  I have actually tried several from them, one of which my almost 4 year old takes, as it is specially formulated for little ones (review coming up very soon).  The pill I am currently trying is designed for a Woman's body and her needs for nutrition, including the necessity for promoting the balance of healthy yeast, weight loss, improved digestion, prevention of UTI's, providing regularity, and reduced bloating.  I have had 2 UTI's in the last year (and at least 1 every year or two previously).  I would usually treat them with the usual otc pills and drink lots of cranberry juice.  This particular pill can prevent UTI's because it combines unsweetened whole cranberry juice with 100% Naturally Occurring D-Mannose.  So taking this supplement every day prevents UTI's, but can also help treat and shorten the UTI if it occurs.   It is suggested to take 1-2 pills daily, and I have been taking 2 pills daily.  The pills aren't small, but they are not terribly big either.  I would prefer them to be a small pearl shape, taken in one pill, however, I like the benefits that are in this supplement so I do not mind the current form.  The company says that for those having severe digestive or female health related issues to take up to 3 tablets each day for more intense repair and protection.  

I take my other nutritional supplements each day, as well as try to eat healthy when possible.  Foods that are  high in fiber and protein and low in fat is the best option. I drink mainly water each day, with the exception of an ice tea with lots of lemon if we go out to eat.  I rarely drink fruit juice unless it is 100% juice and watered down halfway.  I try to get in a protein shake with with either almond milk or regular milk.  I try to eat yogurt when I have it on hand.

The Hyperbiotics Pro-Women is a fantastic choice, because it not only has cranberry and D-Mannose, but it also has prebiotics and probiotics together.  The prebiotics assists the probiotics by promoting growth of beneficial bacteria throughout your colon.  I feel that this product is working, and that my health seems to have improved while taking this product.   This only needs to be taken once per day as it has a time-release formula throughout the day.

I like how fresh it is, the company states that this has a guaranteed shelf life of 18 months from the date of manufacture.  They do say that if you live in a climate that is 78 degrees or higher inside your place of residence, that you should keep this bottle in the fridge.

According to the Hyperbiotics website, these are the strains in this particular product:

  • L. fermentum – Highly antimicrobial and antioxidative. Helps inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, yeast and other pathogen. May help reduce cholesterol levels in women. 
  • L. acidophilus – Helps fight urinary tract infections and vaginal yeast infections. Enhances your immune system and helps reduce diarrhea, the common cold, eczema and acne. 
  • L. rhamnosus – Reduces the colonization of pathogenic bacteria yeast in women’s reproductive system and supports overall health throughout the urinary tract system. Helps balance hormones by reducing the amount of estrogen excreted in menstruating women. Helps reduce occurrences of traveler’s diarrhea and food poisoning and is known as the leading probiotic defense for travelers.
  • L. plantarum – Secretes the antioxidant hydrogen peroxide which acts as a weapon to protect your body from disease. Creates a healthy barrier in your colon and helps lower luminal pH, creating an unfavorable environment for the growth of pathogens including molds, yeasts and bacteria. Provides a superior improvement rate for bacterial vaginitis. 
  • L. reuteri – May help reduce yeast infections, urinary tract infections, and gardnerella vaginalis. L. reuteri provides a strong protection against infection and illness and promotes a healthy immune system. Has been effective in reducing diarrhea and other gastrointestinal issues as well as reducing the occurrences of eczema. 
  • B. bifidum – Improves digestion and enhances the immune phagocytic activity of the human body. Promotes bacterial balance and optimal digestion which trigger natural antibody immune response. Evidence suggests that B. bifidum may help protect the body from activities within the system that cause the growth and transformation of healthy cells into cancerous cells.

I have tried this for about 3 weeks with no problems.  The pills can be taken with or without food.  I personally prefer to take all my nutritional supplements with food so as to prevent any discomfort or upset stomach.   I like how this is made in the USA.
