When deciding to take a probiotic it’s beneficial to first determine WHY you’re taking one. Do you have digestive issues or some other reason to suspect you need a probiotic?
Is it because you were told they’re great, support weight management goals or improve bloating?
You should consider if consuming probiotics via foods such as yogurt, kefir or kombucha can help support your goals.
Don’t forget about the PREBIOTICS which are found in legumes, fruits and vegetables.
Improving your intake of pre- and probiotics may be the answer.
Improving your sleep and practicing stress management techniques may be the answer. Practicing healthy sleep habits help too.
However, if it’s not, talk to your health care provider to determine if taking a probiotic is right for you AND consider the bacteria.
If you’re looking to improve gas or bloating aim to take a probiotic with bacteria for those symptoms.
If you’re looking for weight management support, take probiotics that can help support those specific goals.
Getting to the root cause of gut dysbiosis will be answer and your health care provider, or gastroenterologist, can help support you through that journey which MAY include taking probiotics.
