Taking a probiotic is one of our top suggestions when it comes to supporting your immune system, important always, but especially so during a pandemic. If you’ve taken probiotics before and are looking for a well-rounded option to give your gut a healthy boost we’d recommend Biotic 7 or Biotic Duo. Both of these probiotic supplements are designed to give your intestinal flora a healthy diversity of beneficial bacteria.
Biotic 7 is a mix of six strains of beneficial bacteria plus a non-pathogenic yeast called saccharomyces boulardii, that helps clear pathogens in our gut. It can be especially helpful for those with signs of yeast overgrowth such as sinus infections, athlete’s foot, acne, yeast infections, and itchy inner-ears, to name a few. Biotic 7 is designed to help kill off the yeast overgrowth that causes these unwanted symptoms.
If you’ve been on a round of antibiotics after an infection or illness it’s critical to take a multi strain like the Biotic 7 to support recovery to your gut getting back on track. I’ve even heard feedback from a client that it’s her favorite probiotic ever after years of trying out different ones!
One perk of Biotic 7 is that it’s so easy to take; just one small capsule per day at bedtime is enough for most. (Bonus, no need for refrigeration so you can keep it in your nightstand to help you remember.)
Biotic Duo is another great option, it’s a 50:50 mix of lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidobacteria, two of the most beneficial bacteria strains we need for a healthy, well-working system from top to bottom. You may have heard us commonly recommend Bifido Balance and Acidophilus as our go-to starter probiotic supplements. With Biotic Duo you get them both in the same supplement! Those who have been supplementing with a single strain such as just the Bifido Balance or Acidophilus for several months may want to switch to the Biotic Duo to introduce another strain. Adding diversity to the gut flora like this helps support the immune system, proper digestion, nutrient absorption and much more. For optimal absorption of both strains, we recommend taking the Biotic Duo once in the morning on an empty stomach and once before bed.
