Family Flora Review and Giveaway



The school year has started and the kids are exposed to all sorts of germs that might disrupt their inner harmony. Even if you are homeschooling like me there are germs at extracurricular activities, play dates, events, and just about everywhere you go. Your kids come home sick and then if your immune system is compromised you could get sick too! Trust me, I know that it is really hard being a sick mom that is out of commission! It is even worse when you and a child is sick! You really want to help out, get stuff accomplished, and take care of your family, but you don't feel good. Keeping our immune systems healthy is key. So, how do you do this? Your gut is your body's largest immune system organ. If your gut isn't healthy because of toxic invaders then you probably feel lousy too! So, if you give your gut an army of good bacteria (flora) then you and your family will be healthier overall.

Family Flora is a synbiotic, which is different than any other formulation because it provides both a natural prebiotic + probiotic together in one formula that populates your gut with the healthy bacteria needed to successfully battle health challenges while promoting healthy digestion and vitamin and nutrient absorption. Family Flora gives the immune system a fighting chance to win and grow ever stronger. Prebiotics are the essential food that probiotics eat while in your intestine to keep your gut healthy and ready to fight back. Plus, Family Flora's custom formulations are all Non-GMO, kosher, sodium-free, gluten-free and have no artificial flavors or colors.

What Family Flora Does*:
  • Helps support and promote healthy digestion
  • Aids in a regular digestive routine
  • Helps maintain a healthy gut and GI tract
  • Aids in vitamin and nutrient absorption
  • Helps build and strengthen the immune system
  • Maintains flora balance

Family Flora sent us Daily Balance and Junior Daily Balance with a Family Flora shaker bottle. These each come in boxes of 30 packets for a month supply for a single person. These are a daily use product to get the best results. Daily Balance is primarily for adults and the Junior one is a probiotic for children aged 2-14.

Family Flora Daily Balance

Daily Balance is a blend of 3 probiotic cultures (Lactobacillus acidophilus (DDS-1), Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, and Bifidobacterium Bifidum, ) and one super prebiotic culture (Organic Inulin). Daily Balance contains no artificial colors, no artificial flavors or sweeteners. It is Non-GMO, Kosher and sodium free.

Family Flora Junior Daily Balance

Junior Daily Balance, a blend of 4 probiotic cultures (Lactobacillus acidophilus (DDS-1), Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, Bacillus Coagulas (Produra), and Bifidobacterium Bifidum)  and some super prebiotic cultures [Oligofructose (FOS), Organic Inulin (Agave Tequilana), and Maltodextrin (FIBERSOL 2)]. The Junior Daily Balance contains 5 grams of prebiotics to support microbiome maintenance & colonization. Besides 30 stick packs the box has some cute, fun stickers of the good bacteria. These are numbered all the way to 30 so that you can give your child one every day they take the Family Flora synbiotic as a reward.

Family Flora mixed in juice.

My Thoughts:
I took the Daily Balance and I had my kids try the Junior Daily Balance. They come in convenient single dose stick pack of powder that you mix into a cold liquid or cold food. These packets can be easily taken anywhere you go or travel. They also are The powder doesn't taste like anything, but also doesn't dissolve completely, so the beverage or food comes out slightly gritty. This didn't bother me though as I am used to drinking juice with Matcha, Spirulina, or Moringa powder mixed in. I took the Daily Balance during my menstrual cycle. Usually I feel horrible with lots of bloating and major cramps. Taking this actually helped with all of that and I felt so much better, so I would definitely recommend Daily Balance as a great woman's probiotic. My kids didn't mind the taste of the Junior Daily Balance either and after trying it once, readily took it. We all liked having this mixed with juice or yogurt. Family Flora is a great probiotic supplement.

I learned that The Junior Daily Balance contains 5 grams of prebiotics to support microbiome maintenance & colonization. Sounds terrific!

Adult daily balance doesn't have a flavor and I can add it to something I already drink.

dd said...

I didn't know Family Flora made so many different products. I take a probiotic but learned this (Daily Balance) has a prebiotic, Inulin, that would help me too.

I learned that it doesn't have a detectable taste, which is my biggest gripe with the probiotic product I'm currently taking -- it has a sort of dirty-dishwater taste that makes it really hard for me to drink. I'll have to give F.F. a try.

I learned that this product contains prebiotic + probiotic together in one formula. I recently read Brain Maker by Dr. Perlmudder and learned a lot more about prebiotics and probiotica and the microbiome.

Thank you for hosting the giveaway!

Have a great weekend!
