What’s in our probiotics?
If you have heard of probiotics, or regularly take probiotics – whether in their natural form or in the form of supplements – we are certain you have asked yourself this question at least once: Are my probiotics working?
The question you should be asking is – Are my probiotics solving the problem I have, specifically? If you are taking over-the-counter probiotics, you are most likely taking a gut probiotic since it is the most common type of product on the market. However, there are myriad brands and formulations, and to get the most out of your probiotic, you need to know what strains are in the supplement and how they help.
Bacteria is classified at 3 levels – Genus, Species and Strain. While genus and species are common across multiple bacteria, strains are unique.
When it comes to natural sources of probiotics, there are some inherent disadvantages, such as:
- They may lack live cultures
- Might not have the right strains or species of bacteria
- Some options like yogurts may have a high sugar content
- Most importantly, might not offer enough of probiotics to meet the daily recommended intake
For probiotics to work effectively, supplements should include the right species and strains which can travel to the target site for the disease condition.
We specialize in multi-species, strain-specific, site-specific, and disease-specific probiotics, backed by clinical research. Here’s a look at our entire range of products, what’s in them, and how they help.
This blog covers a few highlighted species of probiotics that can be found in our products. For the complete list of probiotic strains, prebiotics, minerals and vitamins in each product, please check the back of the product packaging listed on Amazon.
