This is prescribed to me by my doctor and yes it has been a nice addition to my habit of taking supplements. I think that it gave me something more, I felt it in my energy, I saw how my skin improved. And now I will share with you what I have learned reading their website upon my research.
The PLENUM Supplement box contains 30 stick packs. I don’t know how I lost the photo so I cannot even show you. But I guess you can just imagine the small stick which I think some of the other supplements is is similar in terms of packaging. Each stick has granules which by the way tastes so good. I just take it as it is directly in the mouth and it dissolves immediately like candy.
According to their website “Plenum is a supplement which keeps the intestinal microbiota healthy and in balance.” It is a food supplement of the Plenum line, an adjuvant in the reintegration, protection and conservation of the intestinal microbiota. This is commonly called “bacterial flora”, promoting correct intestinal function.
The intestinal microbiota is a set of microorganisms that is present in our intestine, capable of synthesizing substances that are essential for the functioning of the body. It increase the permeability of the intestine and reduce systemic inflammation.
The immune system also benefits greatly from this product, thanks to the combined action of probiotics and zinc, which strengthens our defenses.
Plenum’s exclusive formulation is based on: Lactoferrin, 9 billion Tyndallized Lactic Ferments, Phos, Vitamins and Minerals. It helps the intestinal microbiota by:
- restoring bacterial microflora in case of disorders such as intestinal dysbiosis, acute gastroenteritis, intestinal inflammations, colitis, irritable colon, cystitis and diverticulites.
- treaing bacteria and germs which are the roots of skin problems such as acne, oily skin (hyperproduction of sebum), rosacea, pityriasis versicolor. All ailments counteracted by the intake of probiotics and Lactoferrin, which has an anti-inflammatory action and fights microbes, fungi and bacteria, working from the intestine for the integral well-being of the organism. This product also helps protect the skin from problems deriving from other factors such as antibiotic therapies, capable of triggering allergic contact dermatitis, and frequent disinfectant washes that alter and damage the skin and cause allergic reactions.
- taking special care of female well-being. Urinary tract infections caused by Escherichia coli, vaginal infections, cystitis, candidiasis, vaginitis, Trichomonas vaginalis. There are many problems that afflict women of all ages. Probiotics are a natural and effective solution, capable of restoring the natural pH and preventing bacterial proliferation inside the vagina. Use of vaginal pessaries and douches
The intake of Plenum Supplement is also recommended in the case of instrumental diagnostic tests such as colonoscopies, rectoscopies, CT scans and X-rays, etc.. A balanced microbiota protects us from radiation damage.
Now I know why I always see and hear phrases like, take care of your gut. Because I learned from all of these information that all ailments and disorders comes from our intestines. And the intestinal microbiota is very important to our over all health.

I never even thought that any supplement would lead to weight gain but this is the first time I hear a supplement noting that taking their product does not lead to weight gain. So that is really interesting. It also has no contra indications. In fact my doctor didn’t site any.
Taking Plenum does not lead to weight gain.
The recommended dose to get the maximum benefit from the supplement is one (1) stick pack per day, to be taken preferably in the morning. The contents of the stick pack dissolve directly in the mouth, without water.
In fact this is is how I have taken it for at least 3 months as prescribed to me. 1 stick pack a day for five days a week that I normally take in the morning.
Plenum is a food supplement and is not intended as a substitute for a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Do not exceed the recommended dose. Excessive use can cause laxative effects.
Please be mindful that the dose should be correct as it is a laxative!
Plenum has other product lines for each type of needs and I was a little bit surprised to be honest. Although I am glad to know that it is a well known supplement which caters to each person’s needs. Men, women and even children. I think that goes to show how valid this brand is.
