Dr Oz: Which Probiotic is Right for Me?
You know probiotics can be good for your health, but how do you find the right product for your needs? Get the right solution for a cold or upset stomach, and the best probiotic for blasting fat. Audience member Christina said that she thinks many Probiotic products are expensive, and she does not know what to choose.
Dr Oz: Do Probiotics Need To Be Refrigerated?
Dr Oz showed how good and bad bacteria are meant to be balanced in the stomach. But when you are sick, on medication, or eating an unhealthy diet, you can cause an excess of bad bacteria. This can result in weight gain. But Probiotics help the good bacteria win the fight and get back to a balance.
Dr Julie T. Chen is an expert on Probiotics, and she said that you want to choose a probiotic that will help you get microbes that give you the results you need, based on particular strains of bacteria. A pill form is the most effective for getting the bacteria you want at the dosage you need. That means you don’t have to constantly eat sugary yogurt throughout the day.
“One of the biggest myths is that you should only get probiotics that are refrigerated,” Dr Chen said. Even Dr Oz said he did not know that. How do you choose the probiotics that will give you results?
Dr Oz: Best Probiotics for Common Cold
When you have a cold, what type of probiotic would you need? For this, Dr Chen and Dr Oz talked about Lactobacillus Rhamnosus. This has been shown in research to increase cells fighting viral and bacterial infections. Check the label and follow the instructions for the proper dose and storage that meet your needs.
Dr Oz: Best Probiotics for an Upset Stomach
When you have an upset stomach, are you reaching for antacids or ginger ale? This time, Dr Chen suggested Bifidobacterium Infantis. This has been proven in a credible study to improve IBS symptoms by 20%.
This can be taken in a dosage of one billion CFUs, which can decrease inflammation in the lining of your digestive system.
Dr Oz: Best Probiotic for Fat Blasting
Fat was the last item on the list, and there is a probiotic tool for this as well. Dr Oz and Dr Chen talked of Lactobacillus Gasseri for this situation, which can blast your belly fat and inhibit fat production in the first place, as well as speeding metabolism and reducing inflammation. That means you are fighting fat in different ways.
Overall, Dr Chen recommended choosing a product that has the latest “use by” date you can find, because probiotics can die and you want them to last as long as possible. Try the lowest possible dose during the first two weeks of trying it. Also, read the label to find out whether it might interact with a food sensitivity.
