|Soil-Based Probiotic||1-2 pills||1-2||Y|

How Do Probiotics Help You?
Quality assurance practices do matter. Probiotic manufacturing is not highly regulated and some labels claims do not stand up to scrutiny. Consider the results of these investigations into probiotic quality:
- Of 26 commercial probiotics assessed in this study, none fully supported label claims, and some of them contained unacceptable microorganisms .
- One study found only half of the probiotics examined had the specific strain listed on the label .
- Another study found 43% of the probiotics assessed contained less than half the amount of probiotic listed on their labels .
What to Look for in a Quality Probiotic Supplement
If a company follows quality assurance practices, a probiotic supplement will meet its label claims and not contain potentially harmful organisms.
