Probiotics are the friendly microbes in your gut that help support digestive and immune health*, but did you know that different strains of probiotics benefit specific parts of the digestive tract more than others?
Remember this quick tip when choosing a probiotic: Look for a good mix of beneficial strains including L’s and B’s to support a healthy, balanced gut.*
- L is for Lactobacilli, which reside mostly in your small intestine where nutrient absorption and digestion occur. Lactobacilli promote overall digestive balance and immune function.* They also support vaginal and urinary health.*
- B is for Bifidobacteria, which are abundant in your large intestine (colon) and are also the most prevalent probiotic strains in the human body. In addition to supporting digestive balance and immune function, Bifidobacteria support colon health and regularity.* Choosing a probiotic with plenty of B’s also helps replace the Bifidobacteria that decline with age.
