Which Probiotics Supplement is Right for Me?


With our gut being responsible for a wide range of key bodily functions, including food digestion, metabolism and brain function, it’s clear to see how the health of our gut is intrinsically linked to our overall health.


When our gut is healthy, we are healthy too. It’s important to care for your gut health, but with an abundance of probiotic supplements available, it can be hard to know which one is best for you. Discover the range of probiotic supplements from Garden of Life and start your journey to improve your gut health today.


What Are Probiotics?


Firstly, let’s start by looking at what probiotics means. Probiotics is the name given to the live bacteria, fungi and other micro-organisms that reside in our body. With both good and bad bacteria present in our gut, it’s important to look after our gut health to ensure that the good bacteria outweigh the bad bacteria.


How Do I Rebuild My Gut Health?


Everyone’s gut is unique, meaning that one way to improve gut health will work wonders for some people but not work for others. Instead of focusing on getting rid of bad bacteria, it’s better to look at ways you can rebuild and restore good bacteria. You can rebuild your gut health in two ways: through your diet (prebiotics) and probiotics.


Your diet is a great place to start when looking at rebuilding your gut health. Some foods high in fibre are classed as prebiotics that help to feed the good bacteria in your gut. A plant-based diet like the Mediterranean diet will provide you with plenty of fibre-rich fruits, veg and whole grains that are perfect for restoring your healthy bacteria. Some common foods that are a great source of prebiotics include garlic, onions, bananas, apples, and oats, to name a few.

You’ll also need a source of probiotics to help restore your gut health. Probiotics are live bacteria that can often be found in fermented foods, like kimchi and kombucha. However, the easiest way to ensure you’re getting the right amount of probiotics to restore gut health is by taking probiotic supplements.


Read on to discover how to improve your gut health and find out which gut health supplement is right for you and your needs.
