Go With Your Gut - How to Pick the Best Probiotic for You
April 08, 20226 min read
The beneficial health effects of probiotics are getting a lot of well-deserved attention lately.
Probiotics are living organisms—good bacteria—acquired at birth that live in your gut microbiome. This is important because your gastrointestinal health (the gut) is responsible for the health of your immune system. Good gut bacteria keeps the bad bacteria away.
If your gut microbiome is off-balance, so is your immune health. Current research studies are exploring how the make-up of the gut microbiome influences other health issues, too.
This is why Garden of Life has developed a unique line of probiotics designed to target specific health issues. Garden of Life understands that you have different needs at various stages of life.
Sometimes you need a general, full-spectrum probiotic, but at other stages of life you may benefit from a specialized formula. The Dr. Formulated Probiotics line has a solution just for you.
If you’re interested in how probiotics may help you, consider the following choices for your specific health-related needs or stage of life.
