  7. 7.

  12. 12. My Favorite Probiotic  While Good Belly Probiotic products do have health      benefits, I do not see it as my personal favorite probiotic. Many of these probiotics will not safely pass through your stomach acids and the benefits will be rendered useless. Probacto is the best probiotic that I have ever run into. They use multiple strains and they are spore forming so they can last while not refrigerated. They do not use cheap bacteria, but expensive ones such as B. Subtilis. Probacto also contains prebiotics to help stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria in your gut. Probacto contains digestive enzymes to assist in die-off. Probacto is enteric coated and made to be slow release so it will release in your gut gradually
  13. 13. Conclusion  Probiotics are increasingly manufactured in different forms as a sign of innovation amongst the probiotic companies nowadays. Made in the form of juice and oat milk, Good belly is another probiotic which is produced to answer the digestive problems in some people with particular consideration to those who are intolerant to dairy as well as gluten products. These are another source of probiotics, but I do not think of it as a replacement for Kefir or other high end probiotic supplements. It is lacking in many areas as well.
