Probiotic Digestive Health FAQ

 

Experience enhanced digestive, immune, and cardiovascular health by taking powerful blends of probiotics.

5 Key Points About Probiotics

  1. Probiotics boost digestion and heighten metabolism.
  2. Probiotics improve gastrointestinal problems such as constipation, cramping, and diarrhea.
  3. Probiotics heighten immune system function and enhance the body’s natural antioxidant activity.
  4. Probiotics destroy the protective outer layer of harmful bacteria, which prevents them from multiplying and causing illnesses.
  5. Probiotics accelerate the breakdown of cholesterol and influences the way the gut absorbs it.

What are Probiotics For?

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that have been shown through research to improve overall health [1-3]. For example, Lactobacillus acidophilus is a well-known strain that supports optimal digestion and improves gastrointestinal issues including discomfort that is caused by irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) [1, 4]. The combination of Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus casei, and Lactobacillus acidophilus has even been shown to target ulcerative colitis [5].

Strains such as Lactobacillus paracasei and Streptococcus thermophiles boost the production and activity of white blood cells, and they also stimulate the release of specific proteins that target harmful microorganisms [6-9]. This improves the immune system’s ability to prevent sickness, inflammation, and diseases.

Furthermore, Bifidobacterium bifidum improves digestion and the body’s ability to absorb essential nutrients [10, 11]. Bifidobacterium lactis even enhances the metabolism of cholesterol, triglycerides, and excess body fat [12].

As a wide variety of beneficial bacteria, including those previously mentioned, have been added to our Probiotic Digestive Health supplements you can expect to experience [13-16]:

  • Optimal digestive health
  • An improved metabolism
  • A stronger immune system
  • A lowered risk of cardiovascular problems

How to Use Probiotic Digestive Health

It is hard to determine whether you are consuming the minimum effective serving of probiotics from the food you eat, which means you should take it in supplement form to obtain the optimal serving size that will provide you with the benefits that were previously described.

How Often Should You Take Probiotic Digestive Health?

Research shows that in order to experience enhanced digestive and immune system function, you need to consume at least 10 billion colony-forming units (CFUs) per day. CFUs refer to the number of healthy bacteria [16, 17].

NativePath offers a 10-strain blend which contains 50 billion CFUs of probiotics.

This serving provides you with an ample amount of beneficial bacteria, especially if you take them regularly. It is very important to take probiotics every day to experience long-term benefits.

Large amounts of probiotics are generally well-tolerated, but if you want to take more than the recommended serving, please speak with your doctor first.

When Should You Take It?

There isn’t just one good time to take Probiotic Digestive Health, but taking it first thing in the morning is an optimal time of day for your body to absorb and use the probiotics. In addition, probiotics accelerate the release and absorption of essential nutrients such as zinc, magnesium, and calcium, among others [10, 11].

They also prevent harmful microorganisms from attaching to the walls of your intestines, which dramatically reduces their ability to multiply and cause sickness.

Therefore, taking one capsule before or during your first meal of the day will provide you with the best health benefits.

Who Should Use Probiotic Digestive Health?

The recommended serving of Probiotic Digestive Health is safe to take regularly and is beneficial for your health, no matter what your gender is.

Is Probiotic Digestive Health Vegan or Vegetarian?

Probiotics that are not found in dairy products are typically considered as both vegan-friendly and vegetarian-friendly. However, lactobacillus is usually grown on a dairy medium, although the dairy is removed during additional processing steps. This may leave trace amounts of dairy that only a person who is severely allergic to dairy may react to, but this would be rare.

Ultimately, whether you still chose to take a probiotic with lactobacillus becomes a personal choice.

Is Probiotic Digestive Health Safe While Pregnant or Nursing?

According to research, pregnant woman who take probiotics, including those in the third trimester, have not reported an increase in harmful side effects or negative fetal outcomes [18]. In addition, probiotics do not appear to be transferred into the breastmilk [18].

Therefore, this supplement should be safe if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, but it is always best to speak with your doctor first.

What are the Best Probiotics Made From?

Our products are always made with real ingredients. The optimal probiotic supplement should contain several different strains of healthy bacteria such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Our 10-strain blend contains seven different strains of Lactobacillus bacteria as well as three strains of Bifidobacterium bacteria.[19].
