probiotics

“Antibacterial” is a new hot word but there are certain bacterias needed to sustain life. Core Health is here to help you understand the power of probiotics.

Probiotics are essential for your body and overall health. Basically, we like to think of them as beneficial bacteria. So, how do they help the body? Essentially, they can help with your digestive system and improve your gut health which helps achieve optimal health.

The Perks of Probiotics

As we mentioned, a proper digestive system plays a key role in your health. Even the smallest meal can affect your gut’s health. For example, certain foods carry bacteria that are harmful to the body in large amounts. There are studies that too much bad bacteria are linked to health issues. Because of these studies, it is needed to have a balance of good microbes. Chiropractors and doctors will often prescribe probiotics and fermented foods for natural remedies.

Supplements

Generally, there are many remedies you could try, but which one is right for you? Some come as pills, tablets, powder and there are all types of brands, strains, and benefits. Try to keep in mind a few things before making a purchase.

CFU (Colony Forming Units). – What you will want is a larger CFU. The larger the number, the better the product is!

Shelf Life –  Bacterial colonies lose potency over time. So, look for more recently made products and keep them stored in cool, dry areas.

Strains – Everybody reacts differently to certain bacteria strands. Knowing what supplements work best with your body can impact your health greatly.
