I created this page to provide a quick overview of the basic different kinds of probiotic supplements you can choose from if you decide to add them to your diet routine:Freeze Dried Powder – As with all powders you just mix it in with water. There is a general agreement that the water should be at room temperature.
You can get it by the container. Or in per-measured packets. Many people choose the powder option because they feel it is the best way to introduce friendly bacteria directly into the intestines. This is because fluids quickly travel through you. Also, it can be good for children who find capsules very difficult to swallow whole.
This falls into the whole debate about popping a pill for everything. People simply find pills to be a lot more convenient than powders. All you need is to take them with a glass of water. There’s no mixing or measuring. Also, with probiotics the main objective is to get them into your intestines.
This means the live bacteria needs to survive the trip through the stomach. Remember, our stomach contains some really powerful acids intended to breakdown and dissolve all the stuff we put in it. Many manufacturers of probiotic capsules make a big deal of the protective coating of the capsule. They say it allows most of the bacteria to survive while it makes it journey through our digestive tract to their home in the intestines.
You can get the supplements in a liquid form. I used the word fluid because there are different kinds of liquids. There are those that have the consistency of something like drinking a milk shake. And those that seem more like drinking a fruit juice. The concern, however, is that liquid probiotics supplements begin to lose their strength a couple weeks after their production.
Many liquid probiotics supplements, in fact, should be treated much the same as dairy products, meaning that they should be refrigerated at all times. Then used in a timely manner as they can expire after a certain date.
So, first we choose whether or not to take a probiotic supplement. I think the research, tests, and studies, are clear that probiotics have a variety of benefits. I only got interested in them while learning that they may help yeast infections.
But then, I needed to decide what form to take. Well, for me the decision wasn’t that difficult. I’m very lazy and pills are just easier to do. However, everyone decides what is best for them. This very quick article was simply to make you aware of the options.The Bottom Line: I created this website because I needed to find something that could help with recurring yeast infections. I learn a lot about yeast infections, the candida bacteria that causes it, and that probiotics have been shown to help.
But I also learn that probiotics is a much larger subject than just that it may help candida. So I added additional pages to provide more information about probiotics. This page was just to give a overview of the different forms probiotic supplements can come in.If you do decide to start taking supplements, regardless of the form, keep in mind that just like anything new, your body may need a couple of days to get use to them. When first starting, we are adding more probiotic bacteria to our bodies than what is currently present. This means we are quickly spiking our probiotic levels.
This may cause slight bloating or discomfort for the first few days taking the perfect biotics supplement. But eventually it will diminish as your body begins to become used to it. I recommend that you first take them in the morning on a day you plan on being home. It may be good to know that a familiar toilet is near by
