Probiotics are purportedly useful when the body’s normal bacterial balance is interrupted. According to Women's Health Magazine, the best forms of probiotics are fermented foods, such as yoghurt, kimchi, pickles and kefir.
Information provided by Lisa Ganjhu, a gastroenterologist at the Miller Practice at New York University Langone Medical Center, substantiates claims of probiotics' health benefits. Ganjhu explains that an abnormal bacterial balance in the body can occur when one is stressed, ill or taking antibiotics. According to Ganjhu, some of the best probiotics brands to try include DanActive, Mama O’s Premium Kimchi, Lifeway Frozen Kefir, Align, RepHresh Pro-B and Culturelle Digestive Health Probiotic Chewables.
Probiotics can be tablets, powders, drinks, smoothies and capsules. Ranker.com lists some of the best probiotics brands based on consumer reviews. They include Nature’s Bounty, Dr. Ohhira’s Products, Healthy Origins, Sedona Labs, Nova Probiotics and Jarrow Formulas.
