List of Probiotic Supplements

Probiotic supplements capsulesHow To Choose the Probiotic Supplements

Probiotic supplements are one of the safest, and more convenient way to boost your intestinal microflora count. There is a wide range of probiotics, and choosing the right one might prove a little overwhelming. Which one to buy, which one is the most effective, which one is the easiest to take, and which ones are the most trusted manufacturers?

In many cases the higher CFU count should make a difference, but sometimes the strength of a probiotic is in the specific strain, or the strain combination, or just how many strains the manufacturer has put into his capsule.

All the supplements on our list can be bought over the counter, and most of them can be bought on the Internet, and are relatively safe to use, and permanent side effects are virtually inexistent. That means that there can be some side effects, especially with the high CFU ones, but once we stop taking them the side effect disappear within days, or even hours.

Be aware that a high count capsule is probably not the best option for a beginner. Too many probiotics at once can result in serious side effects, and although these side effects are temporary, you don’t want to go through them.

Probiotic supplements are great for a wide range of conditions, it is almost amazing how many health problems can be related to a poor and weak gut micro-biota. But we can’t just take any probiotic based on the number of live cells, based on the concept the more is better, and hope it will work. In some cases, supplementing with the wrong yeast, or bacteria can make you sick. The safe way is to check the manufacturer’s claims about the conditions targeted, and verify that with real reviews, (one of the best review sources is Amazon). It is true that many probiotics will work on more than one condition, but it is not always true. Also, your specific situation might require you to start with a certain supplement at first, and the use another one.

When you are in a stable condition, you will need to think to a long term solution that will not require you to take supplements all of your life. The solution is to build up a healthy and thriving probiotic colony. To do this you need to find which probiotic supplement has the strains that are able to attach to your intestinal walls. Another approach is to start consuming fermented foods and drinks. Fermented foods and drinks contain many strains that are capable to re-colonize your gut. In many cases, the safest approach is to start a regimen on bothe supplements and fermented foods diet. This will help your system deal better with these foods.
