You may have heard about the “good” kind of bacteria in foods and probiotic supplements that can help you maintain better digestive health. We recently had a chance to sit down for a SheSpeaks podcast with author and wellness expert Julia Loggins who spoke all about how important our gut health can be for improving daily life.
Here are a few SheSpeaks member reviewed and loved natural foods and supplements that contain beneficial probiotics to keep your tummy in check.

Renew Life Basic Care Probiotic
This is an easy to take daily probiotic supplement that contains 10 billion live cultures and 4 different probiotic strains. If you aren’t getting enough probiotics naturally in foods like yogurts, soft cheese, sauerkraut and kimchi - then a daily supplement may be the way to go. SheSpeaks member NanaShan76 says, “Renew Life Basic Care Probiotics are top notch probiotics! They do exactly what they claim to, with no bloating or stomach issues.”

Activia Fiber Strawberry & Cereal Yogur
Not only are you getting a dose of probiotics with this cup of yogurt, but you’re also getting some gut-friendly fiber as well. The yogurt itself is satisfying and sweet with real strawberries mixed in. SheSpeaks member HelgaHelga is happy with the taste and fact that it’s providing probiotics. She says, “Good source of probiotics. For people looking to get more probiotics this is a good source. Its handy to take to lunch too.”

Culturelle Kids Probiotic Chewables
For those looking to add probiotics to their kids’ diet, these chewable supplements are a good and enticing way to give them that daily dose. The “natural berry” flavor is definitely a winner with kids and can be chewed easily. SheSpeaks member veelovesfreestuff2020 is a fan of this supplement for her kids. She says, “What I liked about the culturelle kids chewables is how easy it is to use. The kids love the chewables and the sweet taste. I love the health benefits and the fact that it helps keep the kiddos regular.”

Kevita Kombucha
We have heard lots of great stuff about Kombuchas drinks and gut health, but did you know it's also a great probiotic source? Because of the fermentation process in the tea, it's a natural way to ingest that good gut bacteria. SheSpeaks member schnoodledo gives this kombucha tea from Kevita 5 stars and says, “I'm not a tea drinker so taking a chance on kombucha was a leap of faith. I tend to like tart flavors and kombucha is right up there. I especially like their grapefruit, pineapple/peach, ginger and grapefruit varieties.”

What do you think of the probiotics listed above?

I have just recently realized how important probiotics are to our health..I try to eat it naturally. I love yogurt.. When we get older our digestive system needs more help. Especially when you reach your fifties you really notice things are slowing down.. So yes get your probiotics.

It's so easy to make Activia yogurt part of my morning routine by having it with/for breakfast before work!

I love Renew Life products. Having tried some of the other products above I prefer a capsule. I also appreciate their certifications and quality standards. Defiantly my pick!

Probiotics are an everyday thing for me !!! I never miss a day. I take a supplement. It's easiest for me. It's so important for immune and digestive health. The probiotics listed are all amazing. Showing all different ways a probiotic can be taken by everyone. Liquid, gummies & supplements. Something for everyone. I take one everyday because in todays world it's so important to have a healthy immune system. From 1yr old to 99 yr olds it's so important to protect yourself. And so easy too :)
