There are many new probiotic supplements hitting pharmacies and health food stores these days.
How do you know which one to choose and how do you know it is right for you?
First of all, look for one that has at least five strains. You want some Lactobacillus strains, such as L. Acidophilus, L. Casei and L. Plantarum. Look for Bifidobacterium strains as well, such as B. Breve and B. Longnum. Be sure most of them list bacteria content of each strain in the billions or very high millions. They multiply in the gut very nicely but you want to give them the biggest head start you can. You also want to look for at least 5 billion count per serving. They have to travel through the digestive process in our stomach; a pretty nasty environment and some of our friendly little flora will die.
To be certain this is the probiotic for you, take the recommended dosage each day for 30 days. You should begin to notice some change for you during that time. Maybe you will have less gas, have more energy, or notice you are making more regular trips to the bathroom.
Look for a product that offers a money back guarantee. You can be sure they understand that every person’s body is unique and that not every product is right for every person.
