What are Probiotics?

As it turns out, our bodies are home to hundreds of bacterial species, with trillions of microorganisms inhabiting a normal intestinal tract. Sometimes called “friendly flora” or “good bacteria,” these microscopic residents are known to lend a hand with a variety of important body functions such as digestion and immune system health. When you check the label on a probiotic supplement, you’ll see a list of the microorganisms it contains. Each microorganism is identified by a two-part name, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, where Lactobacillus is the genus and acidophilus is the species.

The benefits associated with probiotics come not from the microorganisms themselves but instead from the byproducts they excrete. For example, Bifidobacterium produce mainly short-chain fatty acids, whereas Lactobacilli produce lactic acid. Each byproduct affects your body – and your health – in different ways. Read about specific probiotic strains to learn more about the benefits of each.

What do Probiotics Do for Women?

Though probiotics can be beneficial to every individual, they may hold a special importance when it comes to women’s health. We offer a wide range of targeted probiotics for women at every stage of their lives, including formulas designed to cultivate healthy vaginal flora, provide prenatal support, provide support for pregnancy and lactation as well as formulas designed to support women over 50. On this page, you can browse our wide selection of women’s probiotics to find the one that’s right for you.

How Can I Get More Probiotics?

Thankfully, there are multiple ways to get more good bacteria into your gut. Probiotics can be found in certain foods and drinks, as well as targeted supplements.
