How can we choose a good lactobacillus product?
1. CATCH the Korean characteristic!
There are lots of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria in Korean intestines. Therefore, it is recommended that you choose a product that can cause more of the same intestinal germs by eating a product that contains a lot of familiar bacterial strains.
2. CHECK the amount of lactobacillus!
There are products that show the number of beneficial bacteria or lactobacillus. Beneficial bacteria are various useful fungi, including lactobacillus. Therefore, it is important to select a product that has a large amount of lactobacillus, not just a product that has a large number of beneficial bacteria.
3. CHECK Myself!
Synbiotics contain not only lactobacillus for us, but also feed the lactobacillus that reside in our intestines, which makes the environment of our intestines more comfortable. Therefore, in the case of immunosuppressive patients or people with diabetes, the product should be selected through expert consultation.
Determine what effect you need, what your condition is, and choose the right lactobacillus. If you do so, not only will your intestinal health improve, but your overall health and immune system will also. There are many kinds of Lactobacilli that have many difficult names, but with a short amount of time and attention, you can find the synbiotic product that you need. Let's get healthy with close attention!
