But perhaps that’s all old news to you. You’re here because you have already decided to introduce probiotics supplements into your lifestyle. Maybe you’re already taking them… but just don’t know if you’re doing it right.
Much like other supplements, you find yourself wondering whether or not there’s an ideal time to take these bacteria powerhouses. Surely everything has its optimal moment – but when is it?
When Is the Best Time to Take Your Probiotics?
Should you take your probiotics supplement with a meal, or on an empty stomach? Before bed, or right after waking up?
Since it’s different with each supplement, the confusion can add up quickly. But fear not – as with many questions, your gut holds the answer.BRAND NEW: These Delicious Desserts Can Help You Burn Fat & Lose Weight
It’s there, in the depths of your belly, where both good and bad bacteria have the chance to thrive or parish. And since that’s the case, you need to take a probiotic supplement at a time when those fighting the good fight have the highest potential to survive.
According to experts on the matter, that magic window is when your stomach acid levels are lower than usual.
When exactly is that? Apparently right before you eat.
Your stomach produces acid during digestion to help break down food, after all. As you nosh on that protein bar (or salad, or whatever you eat), your stomach’s acid levels likely go up with every bite. Which means you’ll want to take your probiotics supplement on an empty stomach – that is, before you chow down.
This way, beneficial bacteria have a higher chance of surviving the arduous journey to your gut. Once they arrive, they can settle in and do their wonderful thing – renovate.
Other studies support this idea, too, and demonstrate how probiotics taken 30 minutes prior to or at the very beginning of a meal fare better than those taken at the end.

Since most probiotic supplements are taken daily, consider choosing a convenient time you won’t forget. If you have one meal a day that’s most consistent, make that your probiotic alarm. That way you can keep things regular.
Timing isn’t everything, though. There are other points to consider if you want to maximize your probiotics benefits.
After all, even when taken before food, a low quality or weak supplement won’t necessarily survive the arduous journey to your lower intestine. These bacteria are living, after all, and it’s important to remember their survival is paramount.

Did You Know Only FOUR Probiotic Strains Are Scientifically Proven to Boost Weight Loss?
Like I mentioned before, probiotics can help with a whole host of things…
From digestion and bloating to IBS and weight control… and the list goes on…
However, many people assume all probiotics can help with weight loss, which is NOT TRUE.
Only four probiotic strains ever have been proven to increase fat burn and weight loss: L. rhamnosus, L. fermentum, L. gasseri, and Animalis lactis.
And while many probiotic foods and supplements contain one or two of these strains that can help with weight loss…
I was pretty surprised to find there’s only ONE supplement out there that contains all four!
So if all you’re after is improved digestion, probiotic foods are fine…
