The Lovebug Story
The Lovebug Story
While pregnant with her son Hudson, LoveBug Probiotics co-founder Ashley Harris was put on broad-spectrum antibiotics as a preventive measure. After taking her son Hudson home from the hospital he wouldn’t stop crying. After every feeding, he had a bloated tummy and he would struggle to sleep. Everyone said he had very bad colic and that Ashley should just sleep train him.
But deep down Ashley’s mama instincts kicked in and she knew something was wrong.
When Husdon developed eczema all over his body, it became her singular mission to uncover the root of her little boy’s health issues. After years of research and working with countless experts, Ashley realized the culprit behind her son’s health troubles was bad gut bacteria. Working with leading gut health doctors, both Ashley and her son started to take probiotics. She saw a dramatic difference in her son’s health and was shocked at how much better she felt herself.

Why Probiotics For Kids? It Comes Down To The Science
Our food is full of gut-busting antibiotics…
Nearly 50% of all antibiotic prescriptions are “inappropriate” according to the CDC.
Children under 2 are prescribed more antibiotics per capita than any other age group.
Overexposure to antibiotics and underexposure to beneficial bacteria has been linked to lifelong effects such as:
Antibiotics, even though they can help when you’re under the weather, kill both the good and bad gut bacteria, which are vital to our health.
Probiotics have been scientifically proven time and time again to help counter the mass underexposure to beneficial bacteria that kids today face. A good probiotic can help set a foundation for lifelong health.
LoveBug is firmly rooted in science.
Our team of researchers spent countless hours developing our products, using targeted blends of probiotic strains shown to have specific health benefits.

What are probiotics?
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!
Which probiotic is right for me?
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.
Are your probiotics vegan?
Yes! All our probiotics are vegan friendly!
When is the best time to take probiotics?
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?.
Can I take more than one probiotic at once?
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!
Do I have to refrigerate my probiotics?
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.
What is a gut dysbiosis?
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)
Why do LoveBug Probiotics have fewer CFUs than other brands?
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!
Can I take probiotics while pregnant or breastfeeding?
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.
Are your products allergen free?
All our probiotics are 100% allergen free and are not processed in a facility where any allergens are present.
Where are you based?
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!
Are any of your strains from spores?
Nope! We only use strains that are found naturally in the human body.
Can I crush/blend the probiotic tablets?
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.
Do you ship internationally?
Unfortunately, we aren’t yet shipping internationally. But check back with us, as we’re always looking to grow. Instagram is a great tool for keeping track of where LoveBug is going; as we expand, we’ll be sure to update our followers.
Can men take Yeast is a Beast?
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.
Can I buy your probiotics in a store?
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.
Are your probiotics 3rd party tested?
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.
Some of the probiotic tablets inside my bottle are broken. Are they still effective?
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!
Is there a detox phase when I start taking probiotics?
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!
Can I return my order?
If you're unhappy with your products for any reason at all, contact us at email@example.com within 60 days of your purchase and we will refund your purchase.
Probiotics are something your child should take on a daily basis. But it should be noted that it takes time to build up a healthy army of good bacteria in the gut and it’s important to keep taking them long-term to maintain digestive health.
