Probiotics: What Your Gut Needs
August 1, 2016•19 min
Get the facts on probiotics that actually work.Which probiotic product is right for you? A deliberate, confusing message is being sent to consumers. Many probiotics are being marketed as having multiple bacteria strains to increase diversity in the gut. This suggests that these products are more beneficial. The science on this is incomplete. Trust science. A third party needs to verify if the strains of bacteria in your selected probiotic product can survive long enough to help your body. Packaging, warehousing, shipping and shelf life take a toll on probiotics. The bacteria listed on the label should last long enough to enter your small intestine and do your body some good. It costs about $4000 for each bacteria listed on the label to be tested and verified. Better to take something that is proven to work than something you think will work because of the flashy packaging. Choose a product that contains bacteria that are 100% beneficial. You don’t want to introduce harmful bacteria into your gut. Don’t wait until you’re sick to start taking a probiotic. Ask questions. Choose wisely. Get results.Listen in as probiotics expert Natasha Trenev shares what you need to know about finding an effective probiotic.
