Probiotics used in the Philosophie Cleanse

Posted by: Sophie Jaffe on Monday, January 14, 2013

Our 5 day and 14 day cleanse includes "cleansing pills" each day, twice a day. In case you're wondering what's inside those pills, here's more info for you.

We include 2 pills a day to improve digestion and keep things "moving" in a healthy way. These pills are from our lovely friends at Garden of Life and are their Raw Probiotic product, which I use personally. They have a women's formula and a men's.

Although more research is needed, there's encouraging evidence that probiotics may help:

  • Treat diarrhea, especially following treatment with certain antibiotics
  • Prevent and treat vaginal yeast infections and urinary tract infections
  • Treat irritable bowel syndrome
  • Reduce bladder cancer recurrence
  • Speed treatment of certain intestinal infections
  • Prevent and treat eczema in children
  • Prevent or reduce the severity of colds and flu

Side effects are rare, and most healthy adults can safely add foods and supplements that contain probiotics to their diet. If you're considering taking supplements, check with your doctor to be sure that they're right for you. (info from the Mayo Clinic)
