Can you trust the probiotic review sites you find online? As with many other type of products there will be good, honest ones and probably even more over-biased ones you should probably pass on. This article is not to review any specific probiotic products but rather a helpful guide that will show you how to compare probiotics with a few important key points to look for, either in a product review, manufacturer's site, or on the ingredients page or label. Learning these tips you will be able to distinguish between the high quality brands and the worthless junk that's out there. Price can tell you a lot Too many people look for the lowest priced products thinking this is the way to end up with the best deal. As far as probiotics are concerned, judging a product by price will certainly tell you something very important about it; the lowest priced ones are usually of too poor a quality to give you any real health benefits. How to tell the quality of the bacteria strains Probiotics can be some of the higher priced supplements of all and there is a reason for this. A high quality probiotic supplement product contains many billions of live bacterial culture. These cultural strains are produced and manufactured by companies who then distribute them to other companies which manufacture their own product brands. There are quality strains and ones that are not only worthless but potentially bad for you. There have been incidences of feces and soil found in some. The highest quality bacterial strains will say they are "standardized" on the label. To have that it must be checked by an independent laboratory. Needless to say, there are many that don't bother to do this step because of the extra costs involved. A quality manufacturer will spend money on development, research, proper packaging, all of which cost them money. Quantity of bacteria is also important Now that you know how to tell the quality of the bacterial cultures, also of importance is the quantity. A good product will tell you how many billions of live bacteria are included as well as their names, such as acidophlilus, or bifidobacterium bifidum. Final step What some people still don't understand about getting their probiotic supplements to work is that this bacteria is not self-supporting. Scientific research has been reporting that many health claims

of probiotic supplements are over-hyped and what is needed for this beneficial bacteria to procreate are prebiotics. Unlike probiotics, prebiotics are nutrient substances found in certain foods we eat, and it's these nutrients that feed and support our probiotics, or good intestinal bacteria.
