4 Probiotic Strains That Help With Bloat & Digestive Issues

In case you haven’t heard, allow us to introduce you to our brand new mbg line of supplements+, created in partnership with the leading manufacturer of science-backed supplements, Thorne.

Today’s episode of the mindbodygreen podcast features another one of the groundbreaking conversations I had with functional medicine doctor and scientific adviser at Thorne, Robert Rountree, M.D., that was too good not to share. This week, we’re giving a behind-the-scenes look at probiotic+.

Even if you don’t necessarily suffer from inflammatory bowel disease (IBS), chances are your gut isn’t perfect. Rountree explains that due to the prevalence of antibiotics in our society (even in our food system!), gut issues are rampant within our population. 

Bob and I discuss the plethora of probiotics out there, why it’s important to recognize the different strains, and how each bacterial strain affects our bodies in different ways: “If a company doesn't know what strains of bacteria their probiotic has, I would run,” he tells me. 

As for our mbg supplement, probiotic+ is the only probiotic in the world with four bacterial strains (B. lactis Bi-07, B. lactis Bi-07, B. lactis HN019, and L.acidophilus NCFM) supported by published evidence to beat bloating, improve digestion, and help reduce abdominal fat.*
