    ActivatedYou Morning Complete

    Had the opposite effect

    Overall Experience:

    I’ve been taking both the probiotic pill and the Morning Complete powder for about 2 weeks now. I experienced bloating and gas almost immediately but also started the pill and powder a couple of days before "that time of the month" I attributed my uncomfortable-ness to my period. Side note: the cramping, gas, and bloatedness I experienced was worse than ever! I usually don’t experience THAT much during "that time."

    This whole week, I’m wondering why I have put on a couple of pounds when I’ve been working out, eating right (as I usually do)...I’m pretty thin, and I now have a protruding pooch on me. I’m thinking maybe I’m pregnant and the last period was not a period but a "symptom" of being pregnant! Another side note: it’s almost impossible for me to get pregnant due to a surgery I had (but still...not a 100% impossible).

    Then I think back..."did I change anything in my diet? What have I been eating that could cause this much bloat...?"

    Last night it came to me - my ActivatedYou stuff. It HAS to be that! As soon as I woke up, I looked up reviews and read a bunch of other reviews saying the same thing! Omg - I finally figured it out. I will NOT be continuing with this. I’m a pretty fit person and this has made me the most bloated, gassy, uncomfortable person ever. I’ve never experienced anything like this. I get that it might take a couple of months but from reading the other review that said it just got worse...I’m not taking any chances.

    I’ll go back to my other probiotic that did NOT give me all these side effects.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Hi Ruby, I'm so sorry to hear that you had this experience with our Advanced Restorative Probiotic nd Morning Complete. It sounds like you might be experiencing “Die Off” symptoms. This often occurs when probiotics are introduced to the gut and begin killing off the bad bacteria. As always, we ask that you consult your primary care physician prior to trying a new product to ensure that you do not experience any interactions while taking them. Because everybody is different, we do understand that our products may work well for some and not others.

      I want to apologize again that this was your experience and I ask that you email me at and I'd be more than happy to take care of your order for you.
