Cons: Probiotics may cause stomach discomfort in some individuals
Research indicates that the minimum daily serving of probiotics which supports optimal digestive and immune system function is 10 billion CFUs [1, 2].
Probiotics are commonly added to supplements for digestive and immune support, and they are often recommended when people are experiencing diarrhea due to antibiotics [3-5]. Similarly, probiotics are frequently suggested for people who frequently experience intestinal problems due to issues that are related to the improper digestion of food or nutrients .
Research has demonstrated that prebiotics enhance the growth and activity of probiotics. Accordingly, prebiotics (e.g. oligosaccharides) are being added to more probiotic supplements . Research also shows that probiotic supplementation is associated with a reduced occurrence of respiratory issues and increased physical activity as respiratory issues disrupt the ability to breathe properly and engage in strenuous activity .
Probiotics help improve the body's ability to degrade cholesterol as well as nutrient absorption, both of which enhance weight control [13, 14].

Probiotics in combination with digestive enzymes (e.g., lactase) support proper digestion and an active lifestyle by increasing the number of good bacteria in the gut . This targets digestive issues that may cause bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, etc.; all of which may lead to decreased physical activity . Similarly, probiotics release enzymes that disrupt the growth and activity of harmful microorganisms which can also cause illnesses or infections that subsequently reduce activity levels [1, 9-11].
In addition, probiotics enhance the body's ability to absorb nutrients, including vitamin C, calcium, and iron, which are known to boost energy levels [7, 12].
Prebiotics (Fructooligosaccharide) provide nutrients that enhance the growth and activity of the probiotics .
Furthermore, probiotics improve respiratory health by increasing the thickness of the protective mucus that lines the airways . This causes harmful invaders to become trapped in the mucus and excreted before they can initiate an illness. Probiotics also stimulate the production of natural killer cells and white blood cells that target infection-causing invaders that would otherwise lead to infections [10, 11]. Improved respiratory health due to probiotic supplementation is associated with heighted physical performance .
Furthermore, clinical research indicates that probiotics promote the breakdown of cholesterol, triglycerides, and body fat in obese individuals by influencing the way it is absorbed in the gut [13, 14].
