Taking a multi-strain probiotic can help solve a lot of digestive issues, but not all of them are created equal. Here is one that you will certainly want to check out.
Everywhere I look, it seems that digestive issues are becoming more and more prevalent. I can’t tell you how often I talk to people who are suffering with one problem or another, whether it be bloating, irregularity, stomach pains, heartburn… the list goes on and on. In fact, the Center for Disease Control reports that 32.2 million people a year visit physician offices where digestive system issues are the primary diagnosis. Of course we all know that our diets and lifestyle help determine how well our digestive system works and there are a few things we can do to help it work better. Taking a multi-strain probiotic is one of those things that you can do. And yes, regular exercise and a diet consisting of healthy fruits, vegetables, and proteins will also help.
Now, when I first started to consider probiotics, I was a little overwhelmed. As my husband knows, when I’m faced with a lot of options I sometimes get overwhelmed. It can take me foooor-eveeeeeer (and a day) to narrow it down and select one. This may be why we don’t do too many dinner and a movie nights anymore :D. When it came to probiotics, I just didn’t know where to start. Some of the questions I had included:
- Why are there so many different brands of probiotics? Which brand of probiotic should I pick?
- Which strains of probiotic are the best?
- How do I know I’m getting probiotics that will actually work?
- Are probiotic supplements really worth the cost?
After I had been doing a a lot of research and mulling these questions over for a while, a friend suggested that I pick a broad spectrum multi-strain probiotic. The thinking was that this would provide the best possibility for improving my symptoms. The type I finally decided on was Multi-Strain Probiotic from Innovixlabs. I obtained a bottle of the caplets to try and I was instantly impressed. My research paid off. In addition to having 26 different types of probiotic in one caplet, this brand is specifically made to target immune and gut health. Many of the other “multi-strain” brands I researched only contain 8 or 12 types. The bottle I received contained 60 caplets and I took one a day for two months. After about a week, I noticed a huge difference in the way that I felt. A lot of my digestive symptoms I had been experiencing either improved or disappeared all together.
At this point, you might be wondering how all of this probiotic stuff works, so let’s talk in general at this point. Your digestive tract contains a wide variety of good bacteria and bad bacteria. Problems can arise when you have an overwhelming amount of the bad guys, and not enough good bacteria to balance them out. As a result, symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea, gas, heartburn, stomach pain, and stomach cramps can arise. These are not fun to say the least. Since probiotics are a form of good bacteria, you can increase the number of good bacteria and overwhelm the bad bacteria by taking a probiotic supplement. This will help restore balance to your digestive system and make you feel a little better. Makes sense, right?
Now most probiotics on the market are either made from the lactobacillus or bifidobacterium strains of bacteria. These strains have been used for quite some time and work quite well. InnovixLabs adds a relatively new strain of good bacteria called Pediococcus that inhibits bad bacteria and promotes healthy inflammatory responses in the intestine. Your bottle of InnovixLabs Multi-Strain Probiotic does not require refrigeration which makes it easier to store and take with you when traveling. Another big benefit is that while a large portion of the other brands of probiotics get destroyed by your stomach acid before they even reach your gut, these InnovixLabs probiotics are coated with a Bio-Tract gel which protects them until they reach your gut where they belong. Finally, these probiotics are certified gluten free and free of many types of allergens including eggs, shellfish, peanuts, wheat/gluten, and soy.
