Why should I choose a reliable brand of probiotic?

ANSWER

Some companies have been around for years, and you may know their names. Those that have made probiotics for a while may be more likely to have tested and studied them over and over. It's smarter to choose a product from a reputable maker. Check a third-party certifier (like ConsumerLab or the USP) to see if they've tested the product and found it’s safe and reliable. If you're in doubt, ask your doctor.
