These Are the Exact Probiotics Gut Health Experts Actually Take

Kelsey Clark

When it comes to gut-healthy foods, doctors, nutritionists, and dietitians all seem to have their respective favourites. But in terms of gut health in general, they can all agree on one thing: the importance of taking a daily probiotic. Doing so can ease digestive issues and bloating, help with weight management, and even assist with ageing—all conditions associated with gut health. To help you navigate the overwhelming supplements aisle in your supermarket, Well+Good reached out to doctors, dietitians, and nutritionists regarding their go-to probiotic. Below, read up on the three gut health supplements that get resounding approval from health professionals:

"I love Renew Life Ultimate Flora Probiotics because it has both [strain variety and potency]. Different bacteria have different benefits and you have a rich array of bacteria already in your gut. You also want potency. … When it comes to probiotics, I look for a minimum of 15 to 30 billion culture count."

Ellie Krieger, RD, author of You Have It Made

"Advanced Naturals' Ultimate Floramax 30 Billion Probiotic. Thirty billion, as a dosage, is potent enough to provide ample probiotics but not so high that it's tough to tolerate."

Lauren Slayton, RD, founder of Foodtrainers
