Digestics with ProbiFiber+ | Healthy 2-in-1 for my Tummy

7 Nov

For the nth time,  I used up my points to avail of two “slimming” products — Carb Trim and Digestics. It was really timely because I was getting ready for a fashion show my daughter and I auditioned for Smart Parenting and Summitmedia.

Digestics

Product Description

Digestics is the first probiotic food supplement in the market with fiber content, backed by clinical studies to confirm its safety and efficacy. Its dual-action formula not only ensures digestive balance but also promotes regular bowel movement.

Digestics comes in a pleasant-tasting powder, packed in handy single-dose aluminum foil stick sachets, which are convenient and easy to:
     • Take for all age groups – there are no tablets/capsules to swallow
     • Consume – only a small amount of powder, which can be directly poured on the tongue
     • Mix into foods and drinks – cold to room temperature
     • Open – simply tear off the top
     • Carry – in your pocket or bag

• Each sachet contains:
     – at least 1 billion live good bacteria per sachet
     – 4g of dietary fiber, equivalent to the fiber you get from 1 bowl of oatmeal or 2 slices of wheat bread
     – only 16 calories
• It’s lactose-free and sugar-free
• Safe for everyone – even children, pregnant women* and mature adults
     * It’s always best to ask a doctor before use.

Carbtrim Iced Tea Mix in Lemon Flavor | Be Fearless about Carb-loaded Food

7 Nov

For someone who loves to eat carbs but doesn’t want to gain more weight, Carbtrim is the best bet! I was really intrigued with this ever since I saw it in the commercial of Angelica Panganiban.

I was happy when I saw this in Sample Room! Only the lemon flavor was available but it was alright with me. Fortunately, even if I am not a VIP member, my points were able to sample both Digestics and this. In addition to this, I got two boxes of both products! Thanks to Sample Room’s generosity!

CarbTrim Iced Tea Mix (Lemon Flavor)

Product Description

CarbTrim works by preventing the alpha-amylase enzymes in our body system from breaking down carbohydrates from starchy food (e.g. rice, bread, pasta) into sugar. It reduces the glycemic Index and caloric impact from food; minimizing the conversion of starch-to-sugar-to-fat and thus help in reducing body weight, fat mass and waist and thigh circumference.

Carbtrim turns blocked carbohydrates into long-chain fiber. Since the human body does not absorb fiber, it just passes through our digestive system and comes out as waste.

Carbtrim should be taken before or during meals. Since it’s in a beverage format, the active ingredients, Phase 2 white kidney bean extract, works by blocking immediately the carbs taken in. For best results, drink Carbtrim with every meal with moderate to heavy carbs.

Instructions: Just add the contents of 1 sachet to a glass (250ml) of cold or hot water. Contains natural tea extract, stir until dissolved and enjoy! Drink one to three times a day, preferably before meals.

Full size: 1 box = 6 sachets

Price: PHP 144 / box

Sample Size: 2 boxes (12 sachets)

I wanted to try this out since I have constipation most of the time. I drink plenty of water (more than 3 liters a day actually) and still am constipated. I don’t know how or why. So I thought of trying this out…

I did not follow the recommended dosage though. I think it was over. And since this is a supplement, it would not hurt decreasing the dose.

For the first five days, I only take it before bedtime and have increased it now to two capsules a day.I take one capsule twice a day, 30 minutes before meals.

???????????????????????????????

Here is my sample room review:

Taking this for 5 days now. I am suffering from constipation and this has helped me immediately. At first I thought I was having a stomachache then my tummy felt bloated. That was then I thought that it is the C-Lium Fibre (capsule) working. I only take these before bedtime and when I wake the next morning I am all ready for the comfort room. I still incorporate the usual activities of eating healthy, drinking plenty of water and exercising, though.

What I like about this:

(+) No preservatives and other chemicals, only pure 100% psyllium fiber.

(+) Affordable for only 6php per capsule.

(+) Helps maintain healthy cholesterol level for a healthy heart.

(+) Reduces the absorption of fat.

(+) Helps sustain healthy blood sugar.

(+) Maintains digestive health and regularity.

(+) Maintains healthy digestion.

(+) Works well if combined with proper diet, increased fluid intake and exercise.

(+) Improved my bowel movement and stool consistency.

 

What I wish:

(+) They alter the dosage. I felt changes with just one to two capsules a day.

 

OVERALL: I recommend this to anyone who wants to maintain overall wellbeing and a healthy lifestyle.
