Q&A: Digestive Health

What do I look for in probiotic supplements?

Ever tried kombucha, yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, or miso? They’re fermented probiotic foods, and they’re delicious! Some people like to consume them for digestive health, but it’s hard to know the amounts of beneficial microbes per serving. Instead, a super-reliable way to get powerful allies for digestive health every day is to take a probiotic supplement.

Keep in mind, the probiotics in your supplement should be clinically identified, like they are in New Chapter probiotics. Look for a letter-number code on the Supplement Facts panel of the product. (Without this code, you can’t be sure if the friendly bacteria have been accurately tested or identified.) Examples of clinically relevant strains to look for are Lactobacillus plantarum LP01 (lives naturally in the small intestine) and Bifidobacterium breve BR03 (thrives in the large intestine).

If you’re looking for even more microbiome balance, support your healthy fungi (yeast) profile with our All-Flora Probiotic. It supports your digestive health by delivering probiotics plus pure Saccharomyces boulardii. This remarkable good yeast has the ability to reduce problem yeast such as Candida. Plus, it replenishes healthy gut flora.*

What are prebiotics and postbiotics?

Because probiotics are alive, they need a support system to ensure they survive in the capsule and flourish upon consumption. New Chapter probiotics are equipped with prebiotics from organic foods that provide fuel for the probiotics on their journey. Our All-Flora Probiotic supplement includes postbiotics as well, because these beneficial compounds from probiotic growth are the true jewels of the fermentation process.

Do these probiotics need to be refrigerated?

Many do, but not New Chapter’s! Our probiotics are shelf stable until expiration and do not require refrigeration. They are also 100% vegan, Non-GMO, gluten free, and non-dairy.

How can I support my digestive health with herbs?

Pure Ginger is Nature’s premier herb for a happy, healthy gut. Long used by herbalists for powerful intestinal support, Ginger’s unique constituents help soothe and balance digestion.* Our potent Ginger Force™ digestive health supplement is made with dual Ginger extracts, so you get the full spectrum of whole Ginger compounds.
