This is a review of Garden of Life’s Dr. Formulated Probiotics.
If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ve likely noticed that I sing the praises of this brand as much as I breathe. Okay, okay……not that much. But, I am a believer in what this brand does. I use their products daily and have been a lucky beneficiary of the health benefits they provide.
I was lucky enough to tour & hang out in their headquarters earlier this year in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida and was blown away by the people, the passionate minds behind these products, and their commitment to quality.
Garden of Life teamed up with renowned Dr. David Perlmutter to create this line of products health that hone in on the mothership of all absorption: your digestive system. These probiotic supplements are unparalleled in the world of probies. They even ship them cold so that they retain their longevity.
Probiotics will help you become healthier, get leaner, have clearer skin, sustain more energy and absorb more of the good food you’re eating. Better absorption means more health. I’ve lived it.
“Probiotics” is not JUST a buzz word. Your body NEEDS them to function optimally.
-The standard American diet, pharmaceutical drugs, etc. have diminished our bodies’ good bacteria population in the gut. The effect on human health is profound.
-Supplementing the diet with probiotics is key is returning this good bacteria population back to a point where the digestive system can assimilate, absorb and process nutrients as it’s supposed to.
-“At Garden of Life, we are greens, we are probiotics. It’s who are are.” -Sherri Gunn, Garden of Life.
-“So much more can be done with health & prevention.” -Dawn Jarvis, Garden of Life.
-There are trillions of microbial organisms in your body. You help the good microbes thrive by eating a rich, whole food based diet that limits processed foods.
-A natural, whole food diet without pesticides, GMOs helps heal the gut.
-Good bacteria in the gut helps protect against the bad bacteria. So, we need the good bacteria.
-Digestive health is responsible for absorption of all of the food we eat, which contributes to our overall vitality. That’s why gut health is such a focus.
But, I say all of this to say: probiotics can REALLY help you in myriad of ways. I am a huge proponent of them. I use them and I feel a difference when I do.
Tips for use:
This rich concoction is dense! No more watery facial creams that feel like they only temporarily quench the skin. Every ingredient is intensely moisturizing–and you can feel that as soon as you apply it. Only a small amount was needed to completely cover and moisturize my entire face & neck.
I love that there are no-nonsense ingredients (of course!) and I love that it acts as a pre-makeup skin primer: it serves as both a barrier to the environment and a quenching layer for the makeup to be applied to. I’m very happy with the quality of this Organity moisturizer, its staying power and how it leaves my skin feeling: moisturized, dewy, glowing and healthy!
Organity wants to get this moisturizer into your hands!

“Honest Fizz features a tasty blend of two sweeteners – stevia and erythritol. Stevia, a plant originally from South America, has been used as a sugar substitute for hundreds of years. We blend it with erythritol (a sugar alcohol) for the perfect one-two punch of zero-calorie deliciousness.”
I see these drinks as a much healthier swap for traditional soda that is loaded with sugar and artificial ingredients. The soda habit is the first bad habit that I would encourage anyone to kick (traditional soda–that is!). One of these Honest Fizz drinks every day will help satisfy your craving for something bubbly without ramping up your body’s acidity & size of your waistline.
Honest Tea wants to give TWO of you a case of Honest Fizz!

It’s no secret that I am a huge proponent of feeding our Labrador-mix Kona a healthy diet, similar in many ways to how I feed myself. I believe that you can’t expect your dog to be active, spry and healthy without proper nutrition. The phrase “she’s just a dog” never gets uttered in my house. I treat her like a living, breathing being that deserves high quality nourishment.
That said, a supplement like Rejeneril certainly peaked my interest in that it caters to filling in the nutritional gaps and offering a means for a pup to get a boosted cell-turnover rate and a shorter recovery time.
My skepticism and concern lies in the fact that the ingredients appear to be isolated compounds with funky names. Thought they may all be “non-toxic” and “safe.” I’m looking for way better than that. I want our Kona to THRIVE, not just survive. I believe that whole food based supplements are the best call when supplementing a diet. Nature has it figured out–there are so many readymade healers that can help a canine achieve optimum health, and I believe the most in using those. That route feels right to me and it makes sense in my mind.
I acknowledge the fact that I am a bit of a snob in regards to supplements–I’ve experienced the best, raw, organic supplements and I hold everything else I try to those standards.
Backing up a bit, I’ll say that I appreciate the fact that this supplement is non-toxic. I just find myself growing weary of how the ingredient list reads. I am wanting to see plant-based sources on here that are not isolates.
My Ultimate Pet would like to get a bottle into your hands & find out what you think, as well!
