Every gut needs a good probiotic

As the go-to clinic for optimal gut health, we’ve healed the digestive systems of a myriad people with obvious and far-from-obvious gut-related issues. We recognize that, like you, your digestive system is unique. Tailored to your needs, our naturopaths can recommend comprehensive tests to identify the cause of your condition, and pure, potent herbs and supplements to help heal your gut. But what every person can benefit from is a high-quality probiotic.

Here are five of our favourite gut-healing probiotics, loved by practitioners and clients alike.

For adults

Bioceuticals Ultrabiotics 45

Protect your gut with 45 billion beneficial organisms from 10 different probiotic strains. This popular powerhouse probiotic provides nutritional support for a robust immune system. It can help to restore serious gut imbalances that cause conditions like SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) and provide relief from digestive challenges including Irritable Bowel Syndrome and diarrhoea. Vegan-friendly. Dairy, gluten and soy-free.

Klaire Labs Ther-biotic Complete Capsules

When your gut balance is slightly out of balance, give it a boost with this hypoallergenic blend. Boasting 12 strains of probiotics in a base of inulin (a prebiotic fibre found in plants), its superpowers include the production of compounds to fight against disease-causing bacteria, yeast and viruses; conversion of inulin into short-chain fatty acids to nourish the colon; and lactase enzyme to help with the digestion of lactose. It helps to improve the gut barrier function, essential to protect against leaky gut.

For babies and beyond

Bioceuticals First Probiotic

Give your baby the best start in life with this pure and natural probiotic blend. Containing probiotic strains commonly seen in the gut of healthy breastfed newborns and infants, this dairy-free supplement is specifically intended to promote digestive health. Perfect for preventing or helping to alleviate reflux and gas.

Klaire Labs Therbiotic for Infants

Cesarean-section delivery. Infant formula. Maternal diet. Medications. Environmental exposures. These sometimes unavoidable factors can disrupt a child’s digestive system.

This pure, hypoallergenic blend of 10 probiotic strains is intended to nurture digestive health in neonates, infants and children, offering relief from digestive symptoms like gas, reflux and diarrhoea. Containing 5 billion beneficial organisms, each scoop can be easily mixed with breast milk, formula, or food.

Kids are in for a tasty treat with these natural fruit-flavoured chewables. Ideal for children age 4-7, this potent blend of pre- and probiotics will help to maintain their healthy gastrointestinal and immune functions. 70% of the immune system lives in the gut — this probiotic can decrease the risks of respiratory infections, days off school, and yet-another prescription for antibiotics.
