Choosing a probiotic

The effects of probiotics are strain and dose specific - Clinical studies draw conclusions based on the strain of probiotic bacteria used. E.g. Just because a product contains L. rhamnosus, does not necessarily mean that it provides the health benefits of L. rhamnosus ATCC531-3.

"Live and active cultures" does not necessarily mean “Imparts health benefits”.    Required numbers of bacteria must be able to survive GI journey through stomach and bile acids and be a strain or strains with appropriate benefit for your needs

How to take a Probiotic Supplement

Take probiotic supplement prior to eating breakfast with a glass of pure water;

Wait 10-15 minutes after taking it before you eat.   This is the most efficient method because stomach acid from your meal could impact some of the 'good' bacteria (you could lose 5-10%); however, if you forget, take it anyway even with a meal

Avoid taking it within 3 hours of taking any antibiotic

Store probiotic in airtight container in freezer to retain maximum potency

Consume prebiotics to feed benefical flora
