What makes a good probiotic?
When searching for a high-quality, premium probiotic that won't hurt your stomach, there are three key things you should look for:
- A diverse set of clinically studied probiotic strains;
- A formula that includes prebiotics, the food that probiotics need to survive; and
- Clean sourcing and transparency of ingredients.
That's why we created Trust Your Gut, a probiotic with organic prebiotics that you can trust to support optimal gut health.
Learn about our carefully curated and research-backed bacterial strains that are in our Trust Your Gut Daily Essential Probiotic & Prebiotic to ensure maximum product efficacy.
Bifidobacterium bifidum is one of the first beneficial bacteria that colonizes the infant digestive system after birth and may help prime the immune system to work properly. B. bifidum has good adhesion capabilities, meaning that it can persist in the digestive system despite difficult conditions like high acidity. Studies suggest that B. bifidum may benefit the digestive system through its impacts on mucin, the mucus lining of the intestinal tract. B. bifidum has also been studied for its potential to reduce the harmful effects of H. Pylori, an infection-causing bacteria, in the digestive system.
Bifidobacterium breve is a probiotic that has been studied for its potential benefits in treating inflammatory bowel diseases. It’s currently being studied for its potential impacts on anxiety, mood, and cognitive function. B. breve may have a beneficial impact on stool quality and transit time, particularly in children.
Bifidobacterium lactis is a widely studied probiotic often used in combination with L. acidophilus. When used in combination with L. acidophilus, studies suggest that B. lactis may reduce abdominal pain scores and symptoms in individuals with IBS, and in children may reduce the duration of acute respiratory infections).
Bifidobacterium longum is a probiotic strain that first colonizes the human digestive system during infancy. B. longum has been studied for its potential to support the immune system as well as its potential beneficial impacts on ulcerative colitis.
Lactobacillus acidophilus naturally occurs in the digestive tract and is one of the most commonly used probiotic bacteria strains. It has been studied as a solution for an array of digestive issues, including reducing the symptoms of lactose intolerance and reducing abdominal pain and symptoms in individuals with IBS. Cellular studies have found that L. acidophilus may increase the presence of anti-inflammatory signaling molecules and decrease the presence of pro-inflammatory signaling molecules. L. acidophilus may support a strong immune system: in one study of children, consuming L. acidophilus in combination with B. lactis (which is also present in our probiotic capsule) was associated with a shorter duration of acute respiratory infections.
Lactobacillus reuteri is a probiotic that has been widely studied for its potential health benefits. L. reuteri is an important addition to this blend of strains because it is particularly resistant to changes in acidity, and studies suggest that it may be able to colonize the proximal small intestines (which are closer to the stomach), where many bacteria have a hard time surviving. Studies have also shown that L. reuteri also has the potential to produce antimicrobial and antiviral compounds, and help synthesize vitamins like B12 and folate.
Jerusalem artichoke is a tuber from the sunflower family and is high in the soluble fiber inulin. Inulin is a fructan, so it acts as a prebiotic that feeds your gut bacteria and keeps them healthy. Increased intake of inulin may increase the amount of bifidobacterium strains in the digestive system. Studies have suggested that inulin may support healthy bowel function which may ease constipation.
