How long does it take for probiotics to work?

How long does it take for probiotics to work?

According to Medical News Today, "for short-term symptom relief, such as reducing diarrhea, some probiotics may work in as little as a few days. For chronic conditions or general immune health, it may be most beneficial to take probiotics for weeks or months at a time."¹

Although much more research is needed to determine if probiotics can be used as a stand-alone treatment, what is clear is that they can help aid in restoring your gut health, from either short-term or long term digestive issues. 

Taking probiotics daily helps to replenish the healthy bacteria in your gut, which helps to rebalance your gut microbiome with more good than bad bacteria.

Probiotics do not directly expel or eliminate bad bacteria, but rather works to help the good bacteria in your gut take over, thus normalizing digestive function.

A 2018 study showed that people who consumed a high-dose probiotic drink for 12 weeks had significantly fewer upper respiratory infections than a placebo group.² This "high dose" probiotic drink was a yogurt containing 3 different strains of probiotics.  

In comparison to the probiotic drink used in this study, Doctor's Biome is dairy-free and contains 15 out of 17 extensively researched strains of probiotics targeted to improve your overall health starting in your gut.

Doctor's Biome is a one-of-a-kind probiotic drink. Unlike capsule or tablet probiotics on the market, our active, living probiotics are delivered in an organic fruit-juice blend for faster and maximum absorption into your gut. 

We suggest taking Doctor's Biome on an empty stomach or at least 30-60 minutes before a meal for optimal health boosting results.
