Choosing a good probiotic

Written by Dr Sandra Miranda, ND
Probiotics help with our immune systems and our digestive systems. They will help with any yeast infections you may have and any digestive problems you have come across. Look for these things in a probiotic:
* Find a probiotic with multiple strains of bacteria. This is because the gut contains 30-40 strains. The more strains, the happier and healthier you will be.
Here is a list of different health conditions that probiotics can help with:
* If you are traveling, take a multi strain probiotic a couple of weeks before your trip. Taking this will help prevent traveler’s diarrhea. Many people get traveller’s diarrhea by digesting food or water that has been infected with bacteria.  It is also a good idea to take your probiotics with you and take it during your trip.  Of course, you will have to choose one that is shelf stable and therefore ok to keep outside of the fridge.
* If you are dairy intolerant, you should take a probiotic that is dairy-free which means that the bacteria has been culture in something other than dairy.
Feed and Treat Your Gut Properly
Having the right probiotics is important for your gut, but now you have to keep it healthy. The bacteria in your colon thrive on non-digestible fibers. This is also known as prebiotics. Feed the bacteria two-four daily servings of vegetables such as garlic, artichokes, green leafy salads etc  to keep your gut happy and healthy.
Choosing the right probiotic for your body is very important. Probiotics have been known to prevent illnesses. This is one of the reasons why finding the right probiotic is so important. Doing some research on the perfect probiotic for you ensures that you get a good quality product.
