How Much Do You Know About Probiotics? Awareness of the benefits of probiotics is growing.
“For life” is the literal translation of the Greek-derived term probiotic, and a pretty good summation of its benefits as well. Because a true probiotic supplement only contains “good” strains of bacteria to help support digestive health and comfort, as well as healthy immune system function—all that affect your quality of living. Probiotics are no longer reserved for use only when digestive symptoms appear.
As more people understand their value, probiotics are increasing in popularity as a proactive daily health maintenance routine. In fact, a 2010 survey by MaCorr Research found that nearly 75 percent of the 2,000 American adult respondents correctly identified that probiotics help support the natural balance of intestinal microorganisms.
What defines a true probiotic? The incredible growth of probiotic products may seem like a good thing. Except a number of so-called probiotics fail to meet recognized criteria, such as strain identification, purity testing, and confirmation of beneficial and safe use. Or they may be formulated with strains of bacteria without an adequate amount of human research. In either case, you might not get the health support you expect. Get personalized probiotic support. Different probiotic strains have unique benefits and are useful for specific applications to meet individual needs.
