What are probiotics?
Which probiotic should I take?
The best probiotics to take can depend on the characterized strain and clinical research for a desired health benefit. Think of probiotic strains like plant varieties in a vegetable or flower garden. Just as plant varieties might have distinguishing characteristics, knowing the strain in addition to the genus and species can tell you a lot about a probiotic supplement. Strain variety also helps to support the natural diversity of your gut microbiome. †
Aside from strain variety, Nature’s Bounty® Ultra Strength Probiotic 10 provides three clinically studied probiotic strains that you can rely on to support digestive health, immune health, and upper respiratory health.ⴕ These strains are backed by over 20 years of research.
Why should I take probiotic supplements?
Dietary supplements are intended to fill nutritional gaps in the diet. For example, a person who does not regularly eat seafood is likely to have an inadequate intake of certain omega-3 fatty acids and may benefit from a fish oil supplement. Similarly, probiotic supplements can fill any gaps for people who do not get enough probiotics from their diet, or who are looking for support for occasional lifestyle stressors such as a low fiber diet or antibiotic use. †
Food sources of probiotics include fermented foods such as yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, miso and kimchi. However, these fermented foods often contain organisms meant for food production, but not clinically studied for specific health benefits. Aside from scientific substantiation of probiotics, it is also important to consider the variety of different organisms in the diet. A person who eats yogurt every day may not be getting an adequate variety of organisms to suit their needs.
A diet that includes fermented foods can also be supplemented with probiotics to improve the quality, quantity and variety of strains they consume. Nature’s Bounty Ultra Strength Probiotic includes three clinically studied strains for digestive health, immune health, and upper respiratory health.†
What does probiotic CFU mean?
The organism count generally refers to the number of colony forming units (CFU) in a product. This number represents the quantity of live microbial cells provided by that product – each viable microbe has the ability to multiply and form a colony of identical microbes when tested in the lab. There is no clear cut answer as to how many CFUs you need as it depends not only on the strain, but also on the health benefit being sought.
How should probiotics be stored?
The amount of CFUs listed on the bottle of your supplements can change depending on how your probiotics are packaged and stored since probiotics are susceptible to environmental factors. Proper storage of your probiotics minimizes environmental exposure and helps maintain the integrity of the product.
Nature’s Bounty® Ultra Strength Probiotic 10 provides its health benefits at 20 billion CFU per day.† The new and improved formula is guaranteed through time of expiration, so you know you’re getting the maximum amount of probiotics throughout its shelf life. The viability of the probiotics is ensured through the use of advanced bottles that are engineered to include a desiccant sleeve to absorb and control moisture.
It’s recommended that you keep the product in its original container and in a cool, dry, place. Making sure the bottle is tightly sealed helps protect the integrity of your product. Also, avoid storing probiotic supplements in areas such as a bathroom where showers can generate excessive humidity.
