We take gut health very seriously. If your gut is a mess, not only do you feel horrible, but your skin is the outer example of your inner "bacteria" world, often.
If you do not eat higher pre and probiotic foods, you might need to supplement.
As a vegan, you need to be aware the you won't want glycerin, which is in many probiotics. Unless it is a vegan product or says "vegetable source", it's a cheap (and cruel) animal source.
What if you are not vegan? Why would you want to use a vegan probiotic?
Vegans tend to have strong ethical and scientific reasons for their choices, especially their food choices. As a group, those who are not what I call "Carb" vegans (pasta pasta and bread food groups) will inspect ingredients, sources and nutritional value.
When you purchase a vegan probiotic, you can assured that it has passed the critical eye of the ranks of vegans who expect the best.
So, no glycerin for you. I personally, do not want my intestines having to digest fish scales, which is one of the main ways a traditional probiotic is manufactured..and you probably don't either.
In no particular order, here our top five.
While we did link, we are not affiliated or compensated from the links in any way. They are there for your ease.
1. Deva Vegan Probiotics: This probiotic comes with FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) which is a pre biotic, which most people miss in their gut health. It also has Bacillus coagulans, a bacteria that can withstand and work "with" stomach enzymes. This one will set you back a whopping $10 for three months supply.
2. Royal Organica Vegan Probiotic Supplement. While this one is almost three times the cost, it is packed with benefits. One of which is the essential amino acid L-Glutamine repairs and rebuilds healthy intestinal tissue, and alleviates leaky gut syndrome. It is also free of dairy, gluten, or animal products.
A benefit is the organic pre-biotic.
3. Tru-biotics One a Day. Economical, giving you 45 days of support, this is blended to ensure that the formula survives the stomach acids and gut. Many people just grab any probiotic that is packed with bacteria, not realizing that some cheaper companies will seemingly impressively "jam" the capsules or products with bacteria, but not alert you that you might not benefit from the ingredient list. This one is different, as they advertise their effectiveness.
