Recommended for daily use.
Free from artificial flavourings or colourings that may be found in other food & drinks containing good bacteria.
Research shows that it is more important to look at the quality of the bacterial strains, before you look at the number of billions. The best live cultures supplements always list the strains of bacteria and not just the species because no strain is the same.
Listing a strain shows transparency. It allows you to identify whether there is any research on the strain, what the quality of that research is and what potential benefits the strain may offer. It’s best to take the product with the most researched, high quality strains, which are most suited to your needs. Whilst it’s not always necessary to take very high doses of friendly bacteria, as in some cases a strain can be sufficient at doses of just 1 billion CFU – if you are going to take a high strength live cultures supplement, then we recommend choosing one containing some of the most researched strains in the world.
