How to Choose the Right Probiotic
There are so many probiotic products on the market today that knowing how to choose one can be a true task. It can also be intimidating.
First of all, quality is key. It is important to know that the company who makes the product is reputable, and their product has been well researched.
Colony forming units (CFU’s), are the number of bacteria in the product. Our bodies naturally have about 100 trillion bacteria at any one time. It is commonly advised to have a minimum of 40 billion CFU’s in a probiotic formula, although more is not always better.
This varies with age, and need.
In order to get what you need, there are different products whose bacteria act differently due to the strains used, or the process used to create them. Multiple strains are very important as each bacterium has a different job.
One way to go is with human strain probiotics. These are comprised of human sourced microflora which are able to survive the high acid content in the stomach, and remain there to colonize and do their job of increasing the good bacteria.
One product containing human strains is known as Perfect Pass Probiotic. Perfect Pass Probiotic contains three essential ingredients that are among the most researched and beneficial. These strains are:
- Bacillus Coagulans: known for reducing inflammation and increasing good bacteria in the gut.
- Bacillus Subtilis HU58: stimulates the immune system and is known as a strong deterrent of bad bacteria.
- Bacillus Clausii: very commonly used in many products. It is known to be very beneficial in post-antibiotic treatment to rebuild the good bacteria.
Prebiotics are also of great importance. They feed the good bacteria and help it to grow. Some products come all in one and others are sold separately. Perfect Pass Prebiotic is the right food for the bacterial strains in the Perfect Pass Probiotic formula. It is a well-studied soluble fiber.
Probiotics of choice should have no added fillers, be non-GMO, and gluten free.
