Panacea’s Guide to Choosing the Best Over-the-Counter Probiotic for Constipation

Constipation can be a frustrating issue to deal with. Sometimes, eating enough fiber and drinking enough water isn’t enough to reduce constipation. When dietary changes fail to make a difference, you might want to consider using a constipation probiotic. Probiotics specially formulated to reduce constipation may give you relief, especially when you stick with your dietary changes. 

Panacea’s Guide to Choosing the Best Over-the-Counter Constipation Probiotic

There are a few particular strains that research suggests may help with constipation relief. A product such as Evvea, which is a natural, non-dairy probiotic, contains several of these effective probiotics to help regulate your digestive system and keep things moving. Some key probiotic strains in this product include bifidobacterium lactis, lactobacillus acidophilus, and lactobacillus rhamnosus

Bifidobacterium Lactis Benefits

Research suggests that bifidobacterium lactis can help alleviate constipation. This probiotic contains good bacteria that produce lactic and acetic acid, which helps break down dietary fiber, fight off harmful bacteria, aid in the absorption of nutrients, and prevent infection. Some research suggests these bacteria can help with the treatment of long-term health concerns, such as irritable bowel syndrome. 

Lactobacillus Acidophilus Benefits

This probiotic strain is one of the most well-known gut bacteria in the world. There’s plenty of research that suggests acidophilus can reduce the symptoms of constipation, inflammatory bowel disease, and even lactose intolerance. This probiotic strain can also be used to increase the level of good bacteria in your body. 

Lactobacillus Rhamnosus Benefits

Rhamnosus is another versatile and thoroughly researched probiotic bacteria. In one study examining five strains of rhamnosus, it was found that all five strains helped relieve constipation symptoms. This probiotic can also alleviate irritable bowel syndrome and diarrhea symptoms. 

How Should You Use Probiotics?

Probiotics for constipation relief typically work best when tablets are taken daily. A product like Evvea should be taken twice a day for best results. For adults, two capsules with breakfast are ideal; seniors should take three tablets twice a day for optimal results.

It’s typically NOT best to take probiotics on an empty stomach. The stomach acid from digestion can potentially reduce the survival rate of the probiotic product. Some research suggests avoiding dairy products, red meat, and carbonated drinks when you take probiotics. If you miss a dose and you’ve already eaten, you can wait two to three hours before taking your probiotics. 

Should You Drink a Lot of Water With Probiotics?

If you want to increase the survival rate of good bacteria in your gut, it might be a good idea to drink at least a full glass of water when you take your probiotic supplement. When you drink a lot of water, you can dilute some of the acid in your stomach. Using a prebiotic may also be helpful. 

If you are challenged with chronic constipation, then a probiotic supplement might be the key to regulating your digestive system. It’s important to use a probiotic that has the right blend of effective probiotic strains to get the best results. Contact Panacea Scientific to order a probiotic supplement today.
