What are the top probiotics today? Are they any better than several years ago or are there just more to choose from? Choosing a probiotics to add to your diet is no different than choosing any other supplement.

When products first come on the market, it seems that everyone wants to try it. For those who must be or are trying to live a healthier lifestyle, they want to add to their diets or change them so that their bodies will be healthier. These are preventative measures with the hopes that they won't get sick or be so sick when they are sick. It is also done with the intentions to maintain their current active lifestyles.

Probiotics are not new; they were just rediscovered and research since the rediscovery has been ongoing. Unfortunately, the research is not as intense as it is for cancer or AIDS but it is moving forward. It is understood that probiotics are found naturally within our bodies and there are millions of them; they are there to battle bad bacteria that can cause chaos within our various bodily systems.

The outcome of the research that has occurred at this time, in general, indicates that probiotics can not harm you and there are indications that they are good for the body. With the increase of physical activity and overall general health for most of the population, there are now a number of brands that offer probiotics. The top probiotics will obviously stand on their own; but what should you look for when choosing one?

When there are multiple options, especially when it comes to supplements, it can be overwhelming to decipher which products are the best. How does the average person know what to look for? Here are some points to consider during your search for the top probiotics:

• Culture count

• Effective delivery support

• Multiple probiotic strains

• Scientific support

• Convenient dosage

• Manufacturer

The criteria noted above is not in any particular order. You may think this order is acceptable or you may feel that multiple strains is more important than the culture count. The top probiotics available today are not listed in the order noted above so it is also important to understand the differences of the strains, which strains do what and what is the count of each strain that you are looking for. Below are some brands you may want to consider:

• Nutraelle - 10 Billion, multi-strain, supports digestive and immune systems

• Culturelle - 10Billion, supports digestive and immune systems

• Renewlife - 15 Billion, multi-strain, supports digestive and immune systems

• Activa - 5 to 10 Billion, multi-strain, supports digestive system

• Align - 1Billion, supports digestive system

The above brands/products are in CFU (colony-forming unit) count order only, this doesn't mean that one is better over another. As a consumer, you need to decide based on the information supplied which product will suit your individual needs. It is recommended that an adult under 50 should consume 6 to 15 billion active cultures each day and over 50 should consume 30 to 50 billion each day.

The products noted here and other top brands are available at your local pharmacy or nutritional store. If you have concerns about the top probiotics, consult with your pharmacist or doctor.

I recommend that you add probiotics to your daily diet because you will be helping to protect your inner body.

If you experience digestive issues, then you may need to add probiotics to your daily diet. You can simply eat certain foods that containing probitics or take a daily supplement. Talk to your doctor if you have any concerns. The advantages of probiotics can result in you having a healthy body and feeling great.
