Going With the Strain: Boosting the Benefits of Probiotics

by | Updated: December 4th, 2016 | Read time: 2 minutes

The word bacteria has such a negative connotation, but surprisingly “good” bacteria exists. What’s more, these beneficial microorganisms live inside you. Bacteria is normally associated with illnesses and diseases, but your body contains both “good” and “bad” types. Maintaining the right balance is essential to your health and well-being.

Probiotic Supplements for Health

Digestive Helpers

Probiotics, the helpful kind of bacteria, work to keep you healthy. They support your entire body, from aiding digestion to keeping your gut happy to promoting immune system health.*  These “friendly flora” are naturally occurring and can be obtained through fermented foods, such as yogurt and sauerkraut, or dietary supplements.

Making an effort to eat a probiotic-rich diet is important, but supplements help to increase your exposure to these beneficial microbes. They all have different benefits, so you’ll want to find the kind that works best for you. Probiotic supplements can come as single or multi formulas. You can find broad-spectrum probiotics or specialty formulas targeted on your age, sex and lifestyle.
