Why we TRU-ID® certified our Perfect Probiotics™
Everyone has trillions of bacteria both good and bad that live in our digestive systems. We were born with them, and when they are in a healthy balance, our gut health and immunity function at their best. But when there’s an imbalance of bacteria, probiotic supplements can help realign your system and reach optimal health levels. When you find the best probiotic formula for your needs, you’ll experience optimal benefits.
Probiotics are the good bacteria living in your large intestine, and they influence your digestion, immunity and other bodily functions. Taking a probiotic supplement can create a bacterial balance that is often disrupted by stress, medical conditions and the use of antibiotics. Probiotics can also be found in certain foods, like kefir, yogurt, kombucha, sauerkraut, pickled vegetables and other fermented foods.
When you incorporate a probiotic supplement into your diet to maintain the best support of good bacteria in the gut, it can lead to several benefits:
- Better digestion
- Immune function
- Skin and oral health
- Reduced gas and bloating
- Preventing travel or antibiotic-related diarrhea
Do I need a probiotic?
Certain probiotic supplements provide various and specific benefits, so finding the right one that suits your needs is important. Individually, everyone’s colon has billions of bacteria made up of more than 500 strains.
Probiotic supplements are measured by colony-forming units (CFU), and higher doses usually ignite the best results in many cases. Generally, you’ll want to choose a probiotic supplement with at least 1 billion CFUs that has Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium or Saccharomyces boulardii, which are some of the most powerful and researched species. If you deal with diarrhea, constipation or other gut issues regularly, or if you have a weak immune system, a probiotic supplement could help reduce negative health symptoms.
Choosing the best probiotic supplement for your health
All probiotic supplements are formulated to meet specific health concerns. If you’re generally a pretty healthy person with little to no gut issues (smooth digestion, no stomach discomfort), a lower CFU count probiotics would be good for you, like our Perfect Probiotic 30 Billion. For those with more regular digestive issues, a stronger probiotic with higher CFU count is best, such as the Perfect Probiotic 60 Billion.
Women who commonly experience UTIs or other urinary and vaginal concerns can find formulas targeted toward alleviating those problems, like the Perfect Probiotic Women’s Formula, while people with colon and bowel challenges can utilize formulas that reduce symptoms associated with those issues. The Perfect Probiotic Colon Support is perfect for that.
If you take probiotics on a daily maintenance basis, you can look for a lower CFU, such as 30 billion. If you need to correct a digestive imbalance or address a challenge like gas or bloating, look for a higher dosage of live cells.
What it means to be TRU-ID® certified
Something that sets apart our probiotic supplement products from others on the market is the TRU-ID® certification that each of our formulas maintains.
