Looking for information on lovebug insects?

Also known as the ‘honeymoon fly’, the lovebug is a type of March fly generally found along the Gulf Coast and some parts of Central America. Though they have been around since 1911, they were first described by D.E. Hardy in 1940. They were called ‘lovebugs’ because during and after mating, a pair of adult flies continue to remain stuck together or coupled. This is also why they are called ‘double-headed bugs.’ The lovebugs remain coupled for a few days after mating and continue to fly while they are stuck together.

Adult lovebugs feed on the nectar of a number of plants, including goldenrod, Brazilian peppers, and sweet clovers. The larvae are a whole different story. By feeding on partly decayed vegetation, lovebugs’ larvae actually serve a beneficial purpose. Acting as nature’s decomposers, the larvae help to recycle organic matter such as dead leaves and grass, particularly in moist habitats like bayous, swamps, and roadside ditches.

While the adult lovebugs do not bite or sting, they do help the process of pollination along by feeding on the nectar of flowers and transferring pollen to other blossoms. While lovebugs have a cutesy name and they do quite literally stick to each other, swarms of these bugs tend to be quite problematic, especially for vehicle drivers.

Now, let’s talk about the really miraculous LoveBugs that are anything but a nuisance to humans. LoveBug Probiotics retain the cutesy name, but nothing else from its namesake. Our LoveBugs work in quite the opposite way, and support gut health while offering your body hundreds of health benefits simultaneously.

What are LoveBug Probiotics?

Not having enough probiotics in your gut is linked to many digestive illnesses, autoimmune disorders, skin conditions, and frequent flu and common cold problems. Today, the food we eat is not grown in optimal conditions – soaked in chlorine and dusted with inorganic pesticides. Added to this, refrigerating and freezing food causes a dramatic loss of nutrients. The end result is that the food available today has little to no probiotics. Fermented food items do have probiotic strains but they may not be enough to give your body the dose you need.

This is where LoveBug Probiotics come in. Not all probiotic strains are created equal. The research team at LoveBug Probiotics includes healthcare experts from top-notch universities. Thanks to years of developmental research, LoveBug Probiotics have proprietary blends of probiotic strains that are specifically designed for your body and digestive wellness.

What do LoveBug Probiotics include?

Many probiotics available in the market actually have just one or two strains of beneficial bacteria. However, each one of LoveBug Probiotics supplements have specialized blends of multiple strains of probiotics. Every single dose delivers a whopping three billion plus good bacteria straight to your digestive system. Another great thing about LoveBug Probiotics’ supplements is what they do not include. Made without any GMOs, gluten, or other undesirable additions, these tablets are full of helpful probiotics and little else.

How effective are LoveBug Probiotics?

The delivery system makes the ultimate difference when it comes to how effective probiotic supplements can be. In order for probiotics to be actually helpful to you, they need to reach their final destination, i.e. your gut, quickly and shielded from stomach acids. LoveBug Probiotics tablets are designed with the BIO-tract system which is a patented delivery technology that enables these microorganisms to do what they are good at in a timely fashion. Without the protection of BIO-tract technology, only about 4% of the billions of microorganisms actually reach the digestive tract. With BIO-tract, this number jumps up to a stunning 60%. This is why LoveBug Probiotics’ tablets are 15 times more effective than other probiotic capsules available in the market.
