My Poophoria Supplement Review
My Poophoria Supplement Review
Does this supplement live up to its hype, delivering a blissful experience in (and out) of the bathroom?
Poophoria is asking the question that everyone thinks about, yet no one (not most of us, anyway) actually wishes to discuss out loud: how good is your #2? With desire to make good tummy vibes achievable to anyone with a GI tract, Poophoria developed a premium line of supplements to help smooth and regulate the digestion process, resulting in consistently A+, blue ribbon poops. To help us get there, Harmony (a probiotic) and Rhythm (a fiber and magnesium powder) were born, working to promote BM regularity before problems arise, and then sustain those healthy bowel movements indefinitely. Why wait to have the problem, right?
I’ll admit it: I find Poophoria’s branding to be humorous and catchy without being in bad taste (a perfect example is that their customer service email is [email protected] ). The branding may not be for everyone, but for products like these, it’s really going to come down to the science and performance, rather than a cute name or catchy logo. So how did they perform? Read on to find out!
- $69.00 for a 30-day supply of Rhythm
- $59.00 for a 30-day supply of Harmony
- $89.00 for the Harmony + Rhythm bundle, which extends a 30% discount that equates to heavenly gut health for less than $3.00/day
- Ships free to the U.S. in discrete packaging
- Rhythm targets the GI metronome with a blend of fiber and magnesium. Fiber supports good gut bacteria and gently moves food through the digestive tract, while magnesium serves to soften the stool to make it easier to pass.
- Harmony contains friendly bacteria strains like B. lactic and L. casei, which have been associated with softer stools and a reduction in chronic constipation. Its probiotic blend eases symptoms of diarrhea and IBS, supports liver functioning, boosts and helps keep the immune system regulated, aids in the absorption of vitamin and minerals, combats ulcer-causing bacteria, and increases the body’s anti-tumor defense. Basically, it’s your one-stop source for a happier tummy.

- The supplements could be cost-prohibitive for some, however you do save with a bundle subscription.
- Some consumers without pre-existing GI issues may not immediately notice a difference, however since the idea is to get ahead of the problem, this doesn’t mean a problem hasn’t been diverted.
My Poophoria Supplement Review
What is “poophoria” exactly?
My Poophoria Experience
I have a lot of GI issues that are primarily triggered by anxiety (although I do occasionally get upset stomachs out of nowhere that demand a visit to the bathroom ASAP). While I do my best to keep my anxiety under control, it is not uncommon for me to have to run to the bathroom after a surprising or stressful event. I was curious about Poophoria because I know the importance of probiotics (especially since I already have tummy trouble), and I was hoping to see if using these products consistently could help. For reference, I have no allergies or dietary restrictions that affect what supplements I can and cannot take. While I frequently get upset stomachs, it’s rare for medication or supplements to be the cause of that (hi, generalized anxiety).
Poophoria ships in discrete packaging, without extra filler cards or infographics (my items arrived in a plain FedEx box). While that means I have fewer photos for this review, I do appreciate not having a bunch of extra paper to throw away.
The first supplement I tried was Harmony, a once-daily probiotic that costs $49.00 per month (you save $10.00 by subscribing). Here are the ingredients, directly from the product page:
Probiotic Blend (20 billion CFU): 53 mg
Bifidobacterium lactis: 10 Billion CFU
Lactobacillus casei : 10 Billion CFU
Sunfiber®‡‡ (partially hydrolyzed guar gum/PHGG): 200 mg
The other product Poophora offers is Rhythm, a fiber and magnesium powder that retails for $59.00 (you save $10.00 by subscribing). There are only two ingredients in this supplement, which are:
Fiber (as Sunfiber®‡‡ – partially hydrolyzed guar gum/PHGG): 5 g
Magnesium (as magnesium citrate complex): 200 mg
I appreciate that this formula is free of added filler ingredients; while I don’t have allergy concerns, I know many people do. I will admit that this supplement was a little hard to integrate to my daily routine because I have never been a huge fan of powder supplements (they’re hard to mix and can taste bad). Rhythm worked well for me in that respect — while it isn’t tasteless, the taste is easily masked by what you mix it with. When I mixed it with plain water, the taste wasn’t bad — it was a little savory and nutty tasting, but the flavor was incredibly mild. When I mixed this with hot peppermint tea, the difference in taste was miniscule. Speaking of hot tea, hot beverages are the way to go when consuming this supplement. When I added my two scoops to a cup of hot water, I was able to get most of the powder to dissolve with a few quick stirs. When I added the powder to room temperature water however, even after vigorous shaking, the powder was still clumpy and not fully integrated. I haven’t tried adding this to a smoothie- and I could potentially see a blender having the strength to mix this with cold liquids- but if you’re not using an electric motor, stick with hot liquid like coffee or tea. If you are someone who eats with their eyes, you may want to put this in an opaque cup rather than clear glass. It adds a cloudy tinge that isn’t the most appealing (that cloud combined with the green from my peppermint tea made my beverage look very similar in color to the company’s namesake).
When it comes to Rhythm, I’ll be honest: I am not quite sure if I have seen super noticeable results from this supplement yet. I can attest that I haven’t had to strain since consuming this , but that wasn’t an issue I had often prior to beginning this supplement. One time after I took this I definitelyt had to go a few hours later, but that wasn’t my consistent experience. This powder could definitely still be doing good things for me internally without me being aware externally though. Along with bowel movement regularity, there are some studies that show magnesium can help with keeping your blood sugar levels where they should be and also has anti-inflammatory properties. The taste on this powder is mild enough that I am willing to continue to use it to see if there are more long term benefits too.
In terms of harmony, while there haven’t been any life changing results I definitely feel less bloated now that I have been taking this consistently. Additionally, I have more peace of mind knowing some of that good gut bacteria is getting into my body once a day (I definitely don’t eat as much greek yogurt as I should).
Is Poophoria worth it?
I do recommend both products, but I don’t think they are for everyone. The cost is going to be prohibitive to some, and others may prefer to get their supplements from their physicians office or at their local drug store. If you’re looking for products that will conveniently ship once a month and are easy to use, Poophoria may be what you’re looking for. I also think there are others like me who will appreciate that the formulas are as simple and concise as possible (no fillers here that I can see), and the little bit of humor that brightens up something as mundane as a probiotic supplement. Feeling on the fence about it? Take Poophoria’s online quiz to see if it is right for you.
Do you need a prescription or diagnosis to take Poophoria?
No, Poophoria products are in the same category as any other supplement one might find on the shelves at the pharmacy or grocery store. It’s always a good idea to consult with a doctor before starting any new supplement regimen however, as certain health conditions may be better suited for a different treatment approach.
Are Poophoria products regulated by the FDA?
Yes, their products comply with all FDA requirements for dietary supplements.
Is it easy to cancel my subscription?
Yes, very! All you need to do is email [email protected].
