REVIEW: Jigsaw Health Probiotics

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that basically are all over the place, including out guts. Having these beneficial guys helps keep the pathogenic ones at bay. The article I did for Natural Health on fermented foods showed how ancient people got their probiotics from food.

But like so much in our modern life, our food is so processed--as is the soil--so these naturally occurring probiotics aren't as numerous as they should be. To get benefits from probiotics, especially if you aren't a big kimchi orkefir fan, you may wish to take a supplement. And if you're going on a course of antibiotics, it's always a good idea to supplement with probiotics.

I really like Jigsaw Health's Essential Blend Probiotics, among other things because they don't have a lot of weird fillers and because they actually contain a human strain of probiotics, which is pretty hard to find.

Probiotics in general may help:

  • Restore balance of essential friendly bacteria after antibiotic use.
  • Alleviate digestive disorders.
  • Enhance synthesis of B-vitamins.
  • Absorb calcium, copper, iron, and magnesium.
  • Protect against bacterial irritations.
  • Ease yeast infections.
  • Improve lactose intolerance.
  • Improve immune function.

Oh, those are great probiotics. I'm out of them right now, but from many of the brands that I have tried, Jigsaw has the best.
