What Is the Right Amount of Probiotics to Take Per Day?

If you’ve ever had an issue with your gut, you’ll know that probiotics are the key to a speedy recovery. They replenish the friendly bacteria in your gut and therefore help you get rid of symptoms like pain and diarrhea. But how much probiotics per day is ideal? Today, we’ll have a closer look at how you can make sure you get the right amount.

How Much Probiotics Per Day Is Ideal?

Whether your doctor has told you that you need probiotics or you’d simply like to prevent gut problems in the future, it’s important to get the dosage right. For children, experts recommend five to ten Billion colony-forming units (CFUs) per day, but for adults, the dosage should be increased to ten to twenty Billion colony-forming units.

If you choose Evvea, the natural, non-dairy probiotic from Panacea Scientific, you will have to take two capsules every day, which will provide you with 10 Billion CFUs. Since this supplement contains a variety of friendly bacteria, it is an easier and more comprehensive option than deriving your probiotics from foods, which often only contain only one or two types of bacteria.

Should I Supplement with Probiotic Foods?  

One of our most frequently asked questions is whether you should also eat probiotic foods in addition to taking Evvea. The answer is that it depends on your individual situation. Patients who have a compromised gut biome due to antibiotics or an illness might require more than the regular dosage for a short period of time. In such a situation, you should consider eating a variety of probiotic foods in addition to your supplement.

Some of the best options include certain kinds of cheeses, kefir, kimchi, Kombucha, miso paste, certain types of yogurt, and (fresh, unpasteurized) pickles. Many of these ingredients can be picked up at your local supermarket and included in your regular recipes. For example, you could add pickles to your sandwiches, miso paste to your soups or sauces, and yogurt to your breakfast cereal. You can drastically increase your probiotic intake with a few small lifestyle changes: just remember that if you’re buying your pickles or kimchi from the middle shelves, they’re not fresh and contain no probiotics.

Can You Overdose on Probiotics? 

Fortunately, taking too many probiotics doesn’t come with any dangerous side effects for most humans. However, if you are immunocompromised, you should speak to your primary physician before buying probiotic supplements since they might not be right for you. People who take too many probiotic substances in a short time period will notice uncomfortable symptoms such as an upset stomach, bloating, and gas.

If you experience these issues after you begin taking Evvea, you should either stop eating other probiotics or temporarily reduce the dosage to one daily capsule. You might be ingesting too many friendly bacteria if you have the above-mentioned foods as well as taking two daily probiotic supplements for a prolonged period of time.

Every day, adult humans should ingest ten to twenty Billion colony-forming units of probiotics. While it’s hard to get this amount from food alone, a supplement like Evvea makes it extremely easy. You simply take two capsules every day and occasionally eat probiotic foods to boost your intake. Call us now at Panacea Scientific to find out more about our products or to place your order.
