Exhausted? Intense sugar cravings? Trouble sleeping? Trouble losing weight? Stressed or anxious? Depressed?
Welcome to motherhood. Why is it that during pregnancy no one shares the not-so-fun parts of motherhood? Motherhood is the greatest blessing and adventure, hands down, but sheesh…Mama tired, Mama stressed and sometimes Mama depressed!
Fortunately for us, it does not have to be that way. I was a completely different mom before I discovered the best supplements on the planet. I was never a big supplement taker before, and truthfully, I felt like it was all a big marketing scheme and waste of money to take anything other than a multivitamin. Boy was I wrong!
After over a year and a half on these products, I can honestly say that I just cannot live without them (I ran out once and it wasn’t pretty around here). If you don’t know where to start with your first purchase, let me break down each of the products for you.
Plexus Probio5: Probably the most important supplement that I take. This little pill of awesomeness helps balance so many things, including those female hormones that can get a little wacky on us. Probio5 supports healthy digestion and helped me tremendously with depression, as well as crushing sugar cravings.
Plexus Biocleanse: This one is a game changer in the bloating department. It also removes toxins and other harmful microbes in the GI tract.
Plexus VitalBiome: Another one of my favorites! This is absolutely necessary if you have anxiety or have struggled with depression. It is a probiotic, but it is to be taken in addition to the Probio5. Many different studies show that this teenie little capsule can drastically improve feelings of stress, anxiety and depression. Gimme, gimme!
Plexus MegaX: If you have a hard time falling asleep (that was me, too!), you have to try this out. I have so many friends and family members taking MegaX as an alternative to prescription/OTC sleep aids. It is also shown to improve mood and feelings of stress.
Plexus Slim: This product does pretty much everything. It stabilizes blood sugar and increases good bacteria in the gut–which is essential for weight management. It is also a prebiotic, meaning that it works hand-in-hand with Probio5 and VitalBiome, making them more effective.
Plexus XFactor Plus: This is the best vitamin on the market. My OB actually told me to use it as a prenatal because he was so impressed with its contents.
