Dr Oz: At-Home Probiotic Supplement Test
Does your probiotic supplement really work? Dr Oz was excited to reveal an easy at-home test to help you answer this question for yourself. If you have a probiotic supplement at home right now, you can find out whether the live cultures in it are active. Dr Roshini Raj joined Dr Oz and explained that it’s already known that different strains of probiotics are good for different parts of your body or different functions. You also want to make sure that it’s actually getting to your intestine, where it needs to go, without getting killed off by stomach acid or other things. Plus, you want to make sure there’s real, active live cultures in your probiotic supplement.
Dr Oz: Probiotic Test To Check For Active Live Cultures
The test for probiotic supplements works if your supplement contains lactobacillus acidophilus. That’s the oldest and most common one that’s typically found in yogurt. To test your probiotic, take two probiotic capsules, open them, and add them to four ounces of warm milk. Then leave the glass untouched at room temperature for 24 to 48 hours. If the milk has not changed, the probiotic may not be viable. However, if the milk has curdled, that means it’s working.
Dr Oz: Shopping For Probiotic Supplements
When shopping for probiotics, it’s important to find the right probiotic for you. There are probiotics that are good for IBC, eczema, constipation, and yeast infections. It’s important to pick the right probiotic strain as well. Look for at least 10 billion live active organisms. USANA is a trusted sponsorship partner of the show and their probiotics contain 12 billion live active organisms. Also, be sure to read the instructions because some probiotics need to be taken twice a day, while others only need to be taken once a day.
