Calm the stomach storms and promotes healthy probiotic balance in the intestines with 8 Strains & 4 Billion potency.
Our stomachs normally contain both good and bad bacteria. When the two are in balance, the good guys win -- even when viruses attack. But the balance can get thrown off if we eat too much processed sugar and white flour or take antibiotics, which indiscriminately kill all bacteria.
How it Works
Tummy Tuneup delivers a blast of 4 billion reinforcements from eight vital strains of friendly bacteria. This shock and awe against the bad knocks stomach bugs -- and the accompanying indigestion and nausea -- out of the fight with the first few Tummy Tuneup cupsules. Tummy Tuneup is a pro-biotic (in favor of good bacteria) as opposed to an anti-biotic (against all bacteria.)
Some pregnant moms find major relief from morning sickness when they take Tummy Tuneup. Especially during the first trimester, a mother's body is trying to detoxify so it can devote all its energy to growing a healthy baby. This is why morning sickness tends to be the most intense during the early months of pregnancy. Much, if not most, of the detoxification works through the intestines, which process and get rid of toxins more efficiently if there are plenty of good bacteria around for the job.
Tummy Tuneup users also report relief from excessive gas and bloating -- even after eating common offenders like beans and cabbage. Also: Before you consent to taking irritable bowel prescription medicines (which do have unwanted side effects), try putting yourself on a Tummy Tuneup regimen for awhile. If you're on an anti-yeast program, this pro-biotic is also an excellent accompaniment for Beeyoutiful's Yeast Assassin because a strong population of good bacteria is crucial to help combat yeast and fungal overgrowth.
Everyone will benefit from taking Tummy Tuneup. It's even safe -- and beneficial -- for babies, especially if they're not breastfed or if the nursing mom has an intestinal imbalance herself. To give Tummy Tuneup to a baby, open and put roughly half a capsule in a bottle or in some applesauce or yogurt. If the baby is nursing exclusively, mom should wet her nipple with breast milk and apply a bit of Tummy Tuneup powder from an opened capsule -- as much as will stick. After the baby has nursed a bit, reapply until about half a capsule has been ingested. In particular, if you plan to immunize your baby, consider boosting his or her immune system with a pro-biotic like Tummy Tuneup so the little body can more readily handle the alien contents of the shot(s).
Toddlers and pre-schoolers can take from 1/2 to 1 capsule three times daily. Right before meals is best although taking Tummy Tuneup on an empty stomach is also fine. However, taking it immediately after finishing a meal is not recommended. Older children and grown-ups should take 1 or 2 capsules three times a day, going with the higher amount when a stomach upset threatens. Try to avoid taking Tummy Tuneup when you're about to drink a steaming liquid or eat hot soup because the extreme heat may kill the beneficial bacteria. Other hot meals are okay because the food cools sufficiently as you chew and swallow.
Tummy Tuneup is enterically coated to increase its effectiveness. The coating ensures that delicate bacteria will make it through the highly acidic environment of your stomach before dissolving and setting up for warfare in your intestines, where most of the food processing takes place.
Storing Tummy Tuneup is way convenient, too. Since it's stable at room temperature, you can take it everywhere. Purses, diaper bags, office desk drawers, school lockers, and backpacks are all good places to keep a bottle. After all, stomach storms don't always wait politely till you get home! But don't leave Tummy Tuneup in your car or anywhere else it can get superheated.
Tummy Tuneup is a combination of 8 different species of beneficial bacteria designed to support gastrointestinal health and immune system function. FOS is also included in this product to assist healthy growth of acidophilus and bifidus organisms. Because this capsule is enteric coated, Tummy Tuneup delivers its microflora directly to the intestine bypassing the harsh acidic conditions of the stomach. Tummy Tuneup is stable at room temperature, requiring no refrigeration.

It's that important to my health and well-being. Anytime a stomach virus hits, I take 2-3 of these, and the symptoms are gone.

I just finished a round of antibiotics and I know that I need good bacteria replaced after using the antibiotics-my choice is always Tummy TuneUp. I have gone into health stores and tried to shop for acidophilus-but always get overwhelmed with all of the different choices and prices-More Than Alive products are quality products and where I always go for supplements. I like having Tummy Tuneup in the house for stomach upset too.

Recently our five year old had to be on 2 antibiotics as a precaution due to a puncture wound on his leg. Well, the antibiotics brought on diarrhea like I expected. I had been giving him Tummy Tune-Up in his yogurt twice a day, but once the antibiotics got into his system we needed to up the amount significantly. The antibiotics proved to be a worse experience than the puncture wound but thanks to Tummy Tune-Up we were able the weather the storm=)

In fact, before I started it, I had considered myself with "Lactose Intolerance" for over a year. I couldn't eat ice cream, ricotta cheese, mozzarella or cheddar cheese, cream soups... I could maybe tolerate some cheddar cheese sprinkled on a salad but that is about it. But now after that one bottle, I can eat any of those without taking a "Lactaid pill" and not having it bother me at all!!!!!!!!!! I was so excited!!!!!! I would have never thought that product would have done that much.

I give it to my family if ever they complain of nausea or upset stomach, and it works! It eases stomach/GI upset.
For my kids I dissolve it in tea or juice, my daughter calls it "invisible medicine". I HIGHLY recommend this product, especially during the flu season! thanks!

Tummy Tuneup is the best probiotic I have used. I've tried other brands, but they do not work as well.
I have a few issues with Tummy Tuneup, although not the product itself. I feel the product is a bit overpriced considering the added cost of shipping and handling. The capsules I've received are never full, only about half full. The capsules are hard to swallow.
Even with the above issues, I continue to buy this product because of the excellent results.
