How Probiotic Supplements Work
A probiotic supplement, like USANA’s Probiotic, delivers a dose of bacteria to the gut. The goal is to use helpful populations of bacteria like Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium to supplement some of the helpful populations that already exist. If you’re interested in a probiotic, talk to your doctor about whether it might address your digestive issues and, if so, which bacterial populations might be helpful. When buying a supplement, make sure it has at least a billion colony forming units (CFUs) of the bacteria you’re looking for and that the supplement has not expired.
Also,opt for a diet high in prebiotics like fruits, vegetables and whole grains to help foster the right kinds of bacteria for overall gut health.
