Probiotics are beneficial bacteria found in the gut that assist the body in a multitude of functions. Your gut plays a tremendous role in your immune system. As such it is imperative to feed your body what it needs. Along with probiotic rich foods, we always recommend taking a probiotic supplement. There are many strains out on the market; which one is best? The answer to that question is a resounding “yes”. Meaning- just take any and all probiotics. Any are better than none; it’s kinda hard to overdose and/or take the wrong ones.
Personally we have several different brands at home. In our fridge we have a few liquid brands as well as capsules. In our vitamin cabinet we have powders and other capsules. We find probiotics so important, in fact, that we have been giving drops and powder to our 16 month daughter an an almost daily basis ever since we brought her home from the hospital at 2 days old.
