Probiotic Supplements


When looking for probiotic supplements, you should try to find ones that contain many different strains (click here to learn what probiotics strains are) to receive a wide range of health benefits. A gut full of a variety of different strains of probiotics helps with digestion and reduces inflammation (higher inflammation = higher risk of disease, yes pretty much every disease!)


Nova Probiotics and Acidophilus Ultra are probiotic supplements containing over one billion probiotic strains per capsule. # to target. They mainly contain Lactobacillus helveticus R0052 (alleviates antibiotic-associated diarrhea), Lactobacillus rhamnosus R0011 (strengthens immunity by keeping harmful bacteria from colonizing the gut), and Bifidobacterium R0175 (improves symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease) which have been clinically researched to provide several health benefits


Probiotic supplements should be taken with your meal. More information on the content of the meal will be added as more research is done. 

Do you take them for the rest of your life? Not necessarily. It is safe to take probiotic supplements for as long as you like, but you do not have to take them if you are generally a healthy person. You can also opt to eat more probiotic-rich foods instead of taking probiotic supplements.
