A mother’s role is to maximize infant health and happiness.
Kids Banner Ashley Harris, co-founder and CEO of LoveBug Probiotics, with her son (Chief Fun Officer) and daughter (Chief Giggle Officer.)

Our story starts with bugs. During the birth of her son Hudson, LoveBug Probiotics co-founder Ashley Harris was put on broad-spectrum antibiotics as a preventive measure. Over the next few months both Ashley and Hudson started getting sick. Ashley began suffering constant migraines and noticed a weakened immune system. Her son was very colicky, had digestive issues and then right around the same time both Ashley and Hudson developed eczema. Frustrated, Ashley began a quest to discover what was happening to her and her son, and why. The culprit: bad gut bacteria. Doctors tested Ashley and found her symptoms were tied to a severe imbalance in her gut bacteria and that she had an array of digestive issues including candida, dysbiosis, and leaky gut. Her microbiome had very little of the good bacteria vital to good health – and plenty of the bad bugs.

After discovering both she and Hudson had an imbalance in their gut bacteria, Ashley prodded her husband, co-founder Ben Harris, to get his own labs done. He found an imbalance of good and bad bacteria in his digestive system as well. Research led them to the wonders of probiotics and, after taking them, they noticed a dramatic turnaround in their overall health.

Fascinated, and committed to sharing their newly acquired good gut health with the world, they jumped into serious research. Partnering with leading scientists, they set out to create supplements with only the best probiotic strains, delivering the most bugs to where they’re needed to do their work. LoveBug Probiotics was born!

Probiotics literally means “for life.” At LoveBug, when we use the term probiotics, we’re talking about the good bacteria which live inside of your gut. They make up your microbiome, affecting your immune system, controlling your serotonin levels, and having lots of other positive effects on your body. LoveBug probiotics are the good bugs, helping your body - and you - feel good from the inside out!

If you haven’t tried probiotics before, we often recommend starting with our digestive health probiotic, Here’s the Skinny. Digestive troubles like diarrhea, IBS, IBD and bloating are also a good indicator that Here’s the Skinny is a good place to start. For women who struggle with UTIs and yeast infections, Yeast is a Beast is for you. Cold season? Constant runny nose? Always home from work sick? Try out Colds SUCK. Our infants and kids products, Tiny Tummies and Little Ones, are staged by age. Labor of Love is for pregnant and nursing mamas.

The best time to take your probiotics is in the morning, before breakfast, with a cool glass of water. For more info, read our post, Probiotics 101: When's the Best Time to Take Probiotics?

Yes! You can take any combination of supplements you think would work best for your body, as our products complement each other to make your body feel and work it’s best. Our probiotics are condition specific (i.e. Immune health, women’s health, digestive health etc.) and the more exposure to healthy bacteria, the healthier your overall immune system will be!

No need - we are shelf stable for 24 months, thanks to our patented delivery technology called bio-tract. However, if you would like to pop them in the refrigerator, feel free to do so.

Gut dysbiosis is a microbial imbalance of the gastrointestinal system. It can be caused by antibiotics, alcohol use, poor diet, stress and other factors. (LINK GUT DYSBIOSIS DOWNLOAD LINK HERE)

We use a patented time-release coating called BIO-tract® technology, scientifically proven to be 15x more effective than standard veggie capsules and powders. In other words,15x as many of our CFUs make it past your stomach acid barrier and deep into your gastrointestinal tract (which is where your microbiome lives!) This means our digestive health probiotic, Here’s the Skinny has 10 billion CFUs, but it’s comparable to a 150 billion CFU capsule!

Absolutely! In fact, we have a product specifically for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers called Labor of Love, which is meant to be taken throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding, though any of our probiotics are safe for nursing mamas.

All our probiotics are 100% allergen free and are not processed in a facility where any allergens are present.

The LoveBug Lab is located in New York, New York. Each step in our production process also takes place right here in the U.S.A. We are proudly American-made!

Nope! We only use strains that are found naturally in the human body.

Feel free to break the tablets in half or a few pieces to make them easier to swallow. However, we do not recommend completely crushing the tablets into a powder, as it destroys the BIO-tract technology, making them less effective.

We are sold internationally. Please visit iHerb to buy our products online for international shipping.

Yeast is a Beast is specially formulated with women's health in mind and contains bacteria strains naturally found in the vagina to balance pH and help battle and existing or recurring yeast infections and UTIs. However, all of our products are safe for general consumer use.

Yes! We are available in a range of stores across the US. To easily find LoveBug products at a store closest to you, go ahead and click on “Store Locator” at the top of the page.

Our probiotics are manufactured in facilities that are GMP certified through NSF. We adhere to the strictest quality control and FDA guidelines and perform rigorous testing on every lot to ensure they are survivable and as the label states.

We’re careful to pack our bottles with organic cotton to protect the tablets during shipping. However, sometimes the shipping process is a bit bumpier than expected. Rest assured, however that the pills are still 100% effective (even if broken!) That's due to our patented delivery technology called Bio Tract, which keeps the healthy bacteria safe until it reaches the lower GI tract. So even though some of the tablets are broken, they're all still just as effective and potent!

Because LoveBug probiotics are 15 times more effective than any standard probiotic capsule on the market, you may feel some initial changes (and not surprisingly, you may be visiting the porcelain throne more regularly!) No need to fret—it just means some very positive changes are happening inside! Repopulating your system can put you through a detoxification process that can sometimes result in feeling slightly worse (gas, diarrhea, bloating, etc.) before feeling better. It’s the good bugs, hard at work!
