Get to Know Your Bacteria

Okay. We throw a lot of probiotics 4-1-1 at you and it may be hard to keep up with all the new information floating around out there. (We try really hard not to bury you in medical-ese!)  So, we at Probulin thought it might be time for a refresher course. Below is a list of helpful bacteria to be on the lookout for!

Lactobacillus acidophilus

L. bulgaricus

L. casei

L. johnsonii

L. reuteri

Bifidobacterium lactis

B. breve

B. infantis

B. longum

Streptococcus thermophilus

Certain foods already contain the probiotics listed above. Here’s a cheat sheet to take to the supermarket!

  • Yogurt | Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Streptococcus, thermophilus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacteria
  • Cheese | Lactobacillus strains (like Gouda in the picture left)
  • Kefir | Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria
  • Pickles, sauerkraut, miso,  and kimchi |Lactobacillus

Hope this helps gets you pointed in the right direction!

Go with your gut,

The Probulin Team
