What are some of the limitations of probiotics?

Not all probiotics are created equal. Probiotics can be beneficial, but they also have some key limitations. Certain factors can limit the viability of a probiotic, including the acidity of the product, the presence of other bacteria, processing and storage conditions, and resiliency of the probiotic strain. Resilience refers to its ability to colonize the gut after passing through the acidic environment of the stomach. Additionally, to be effective, probiotics need to have excellent stability throughout the shelf life.

If I already take a probiotic, do I need to take Nu Biome too?

Probiotics work through a different mechanism than the ingredients in Nu Biome. A highquality probiotic (one that has excellent stability throughout its shelf life, survives passage through the acidic environment of the stomach, colonizes in the lower digestive tract, and is backed by clinical studies) provides beneficial bacteria that confer health benefits by colonizing in the gut. Nu Biome works by providing prebiotics that act as fuel to support the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria that are already present in your gut, along with postbiotics that have additional health benefits beyond balancing good and bad bacteria. We highly recommend pairing Nu Biome to your current routine for all the added benefits that come from this formula—even if you are already taking a probiotic.
