1. The number of live bacteria in the shelf life should be more: see whether the number of live bacteria in the shelf life is marked. Many probiotic products requiring low-temperature storage and transportation are only labeled with hundreds of millions of live bacteria, but almost zero live bacteria can actually reach the intestines after transportation, storage, shelve, take home and other processes. Therefore, it is recommended to choose products with a large number of live bacteria within the shelf life and can be stored and transported at room temperature.
2. Stomach acid and bile acid resistance: choose products that are resistant to stomach acid and bile, so as to ensure that enough viable bacteria can reach the intestinal tract to play a role.
3. Note the strain number: strain number is like a person’s ID number, there is an ID card is a legal citizen, formal probiotics must have their own strain number.
