Not all probiotics act the same nor do they offer the same benefits.
The objective for gut health is to have a lot more good organisms than bad organisms in it. An imbalanced gut (dysbiosis) is linked to almost all stomach conditions and many diseases (ranging from IBD to metabolic disorders like type 2 diabetes).
In order to keep the gut in good health or to correct an unhealthy gut one must manage this balance. Probiotics should be the managers of gut health by driving the bad stuff out and building up the good stuff.
While most common probiotics introduce a lot of strains from two or three of the same families of bacteria, the best probiotics will:
🔹Build bacteria diversity from a wide range of healthy bacterium types beyond Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium type bacteria
🔹Drive out pathogens
🔹Increase antibody production (specifically IgG)
When bad organisms are driven out, good organisms have room and freedom to flourish.
The best probiotics will introduce the best managers to keep everything in order in the gut.
