All probiotics are not the same, so what should you be looking for? - gut health, probiotics

Not all probiotics are the same. Actually, many of them aren't even remotely similar to others. Different ingredients (strains) usually means different performance.

Comparing reseeding probiotics to gut management probiotics is like comparing apples and oranges. Actually, it is a bit more like comparing a riding lawn mower to a luxury sports car.

There is a time and place for the riding lawn mower version. No question. But otherwise...

If you are taking an antibiotic you need strains that are antibiotic resistant and that are shown to prevent imbalances from antibiotics.

If you have food intolerances, you need a probiotic with strains shown to increase enzyme production.

If you have inflammatory issues, you need a probiotic shown to reduce inflammatory markers.

If you have leaky gut, you need a probiotic shown to reduce (by like 60% in 30 days) the biomarkers of leaky gut.

Or you can take a probiotic that covers it all.

When someone asks for a great probiotic to help with gut health, I do not think of a bottle of yogurt or the dead probiotic strains in a cheap bottle at the local grocery store is going to cut it. They are cheap, I'll give you that. But they aren't going to do any heavy lifting to help the gut. In fact, it could be argued they are a waste of money.

If you are going to do gut health, please consider doing it right.
