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,
