Guide To The Best Probiotics - Probiotics To Buy At Every Cost
9.24.12

Yogurt, kefir and fermented veggies are familiar foods to most. Something they all have in common is that they are rich in probiotics. Probiotics are healthy living organisms that help our system fight off bad bacteria and boost our immune system. Antibiotic prescriptions do the opposite by destroying both harmful and beneficial bacteria. If you have taken antibiotics, it can be a great idea to replenish your system with some healthy flora from a great probiotic supplement. Moreover, it’s a great idea for anyone to amp up his or her system with the right product for balanced digestion.

Buying the right supplements can be confusing. To make it easier, here are our top three picks for probiotics at every price point:

High: Dr. Ohira’s

Completely vegan probiotics, hand made in small batches from fermented seaweed, veggies and spring water in Japan. These are some of the best money can buy!

Midpoint: Mega Flora By Mega Food

A high quality, completely Whole Food line (meaning they do not use synthetic vitamins; everything is directly derived from food). They are completely free of soy, gluten and dairy and packed with a whopping 20 billion healthy living bacteria per capsule.

Low: All Flora By New Chapter Organics

Another whole food line of vitamins that use soy as a base, but are dairy-free. This product contains nine living different strands of bacteria and is enriched with apple and Jerusalem artichoke to enhance the efficiency of the product.

  7. Traditional fermented foods are a great way to help with your digestive system, as well as taking a probiotic supplement. There are a few I trust, including Dr. Williams’ Probiotic Advantage (http://www.drdavidwilliams.com/probiotic-advantage/probiotic-advantage-pb18).
