As we know, probiotics are beneficial microorganisms that naturally occur in our intestinal tract. Why do we need them? Because of their health benefits of course! Probiotics were proven to aid in digestion and avoid gastrointestinal issues such as constipation and diarrhea.
Many of us who know about probiotics wonder when is the best time to take them? Let’s look at Yakult for example. Yakult contains the Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota. This strain specifically helps avoid diarrhea and constipation, improves your digestion, boosts your immunity, and can even fight cancerous cells. Now, these proven health benefits and claims do not come with a guide of when is the right time to take it. First of all, you should start taking probiotics now! Yes, now! Even if you feel healthy and have no issues. Prevention is always better than cure! Secondly, we can take probiotics at any time during the day, but to make the most out of their benefits, try taking them on an empty stomach. Taking them on an empty stomach helps the probiotics reach your intestines faster, but the Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota was scientifically proven to withstand gastric acidity, therefore allowing it to be taken during any time of the day while having any meal. Make sure you are consistent in time of consumption because probiotics do not stay in your intestines for a long time. This is why you should take your shot of good health on a daily basis, and at the same time.
Stay safe and well.
