What to look for in a probiotic supplement

To sufficiently repopulate the digestive tract, look for a probiotic supplement with 3 billion or more beneficial organisms.

The best probiotics are enclosed in vegetarian capsules with no added fillers.

There are several strains of probiotics that can contribute to digestive health and wellness.

A synergistic mix of probiotic strains, enclosed in a single supplement, provide specific benefits:

Bifidobacterium bifidum
Found to reduce colon inflammation, strengthen the immune system, improve allergies and inhibit bacterial overgrowth

Bifidobacterium longum
Stimulates the immune system and provides gastrointestinal support during antibiotic use

Lactobacillus acidophilus
Creates a positive environment in which other probiotics thrive and inhibits the growth of invasive bacteria

Lactobacillus casei
Stimulates growth of beneficial organisms, enhances immunity, improves digestion and reduces milk intolerance

Lactobacillus plantarum
Reduces the movement of bacteria from the gut to internal organs and helps with the discomfort associated with malabsorption

Lactobacillus rhamnosis
Colonizes and protects the small intestine, inhibits growth of harmful bacteria and helps with lactose intolerance and diarrhea

Lactobacillus salivarius
Supports bowel health and strengthens the immune system
