What Are Probiotics?

You may have heard of them before, but what exactly are probiotics?
Probiotics are the good bacteria found in your body that support healthy digestion.* 

Yes, “good” bacteria does exist, and there are billions of them found in your gut. Their role is to maintain digestive function and support immune health.* However, there are a variety of reasons why you might need to introduce more friendly bacteria, such as a result of external factors like  diet. If this occurs, supplementing with probiotics works to replace them by introducing them to your digestive tract.* In addition to supporting your body’s natural digestive process, they also support immune function.*

If you’re in search of an everyday supplement, Nature’s Bounty® Probiotic 10 can be taken daily to provide advanced support for optimal digestive balance and healthy immune function.* With 10 different organisms and 20 billion live cultures at the time of manufacture, these capsules contain a wide array of probiotic organisms to supplement your body's natural diversity.* Since these microorganisms are sensitive to heat and moisture, the bottle should be tightly closed and refrigerated after opening for optimal support.*

Looking for a formula  with support for gas, bloating or abdominal comfort? Our Nature's Bounty® Probiotic GX  contains probi-digestis® Lactobacillus plantarum 299v (Lp299v®), a specific strain that has been studied by gastroenterologists. This patented ingredient delivers good bacteria to your digestive system to help alleviate occasional bloating, gassiness and supports abdominal comfort.* 

In addition to taking a supplement, there are a variety of foods you can incorporate into your diet that supply probiotics. Yogurt, kefir, goat cheese, kimchi and miso soup all contain these supportive microorganisms.* Check out our Health Center for several delicious recipes that support digestion, including one for this  Probiotic Rich Breakfast Bowl! Although these natural sources are a great addition to your diet, incorporating a probiotic supplement into your daily routine is a great way to increase your intake while creating a favorable environment for the absorption of nutrients.*
