If you’ve been reading my product reviews, you know I’m a strong supporter of probiotics. In the past, I reviewed a different probiotic produced by this company, Microbiome Plus + Gastointestinal. I loved that probiotic, so I was thrilled when I was presented the opportunity to try Microbiome Plus + Heart in exchange for an honest review. In addition, the company is also offering a free box of Microbiome Plus + Heart to one of my followers. Please find the giveaway information at the bottom of this review.
According to information provided by the company, Microbiome Plus + Heart is both a probiotic and an omega-3 supplement, providing the full daily American Heart Association dietary recommendation of omega-3, which may reduce heart disease. It also contains the probiotic L. reuteri NCIMB 30242, which supports normal cholesterol levels and inflammatory response.
This means that, not only is the body getting the excellent intestinal protection Microbiome Plus is known for providing, but also an added level of protection for the heart.
Company information states that Microbiome Plus + Heart is designed to support healthy cholesterol and triglycerides, a normal inflammatory response, healthy blood pressure, and healthy bile metabolism.

I suffer from high cholesterol, and have a serious family history of heart disease. While my blood pressure is usually good, my family history in that department is also pretty grim. I was amazed to find I could potentially decrease my cholesterol, and protect against the other maladies, while taking my daily probiotic.
I’ve taken probiotics for many, many years, and consider myself something of an expert. I suffer from severe food, environmental, and pet allergies, so it’s been necessary for me to take a probiotic since I was in college and finally received an accurate diagnosis. Without assistance, and a strict diet, my “bad” yeast tends to take over my body. A good, quality probiotic goes a long way toward maintaining a healthy balance of the good and bad yeasts within the body.
I continue to find myself quite pleased with this company’s products. The way the company divides the medication into a morning and evening dose, with two pills: one is the probiotic and the other is the omega-3. It’s always easy to remember whether you’ve taken your daily medication and whether you’ve taken both your morning and evening doses.
Both the convenience of the packaging, creativity and helpfulness of the daily dosages, and the effectiveness of the product combine to make this a truly great product.
I rate Micobiome Plus + Heart a healthy 5 stars.
All opinions in this review are my own. I would never recommend a product that I do not or would not use myself or in my own household.
