Know Your Strains, Know Their Worth

 

Lactobacillus acidophilus

Acidophilus is probably one of the most prescribed strains by doctors. It is extremely beneficial in restoring gut bacteria after a round of antibiotics. It prevents infections and helps treat diarrhea, abdominal pain, and bloating.

 

Lactobacillus rhamnosus DSM 6594 (patented)

If you have a young child, this strain should be in their

probiotic regimen. It is known to regulate their immune

system so they aren’t catching colds (and giving them to

you) nearly as often. Some research also shows that it

decreases their risk of developing allergies in the future.

 

Lactobacillus plantarum DSM 6595/299v (patented)

If you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome or have some

symptoms, you should be taking a probiotic with this strain in it. It is known to reduce gas

and boost gastrointestinal function so you can feel healthy sooner.

 

Lactobacillus reuteri

A little known fact about probiotics is that they are very useful in maintaining good oral health. This particular strain ensures that your mouth is filled with good bacteria. You should notice less plaque on your teeth and reduced gum bleeding (gingivitis).

 

Lactobacillus fermentum

Bacteria plays a big role in your health. This strain is known to be particularly helpful to women as it helps prevent as well as treat UTIs and keeps your vagina healthy and at a regular pH. It is also known to promote heart health by decreasing cholesterol levels.
