How to take probiotics?

Capsule format

The most widespread format for taking this type of food supplement is the capsule, since it greatly facilitates the intake of the probiotic. In addition, these capsules can be opened by dispensing the content in a little water in the most complicated cases, such as people with difficulty to ingest food or in young children.

3-month period

The probiotic intake time that we recommend from Bioithas is 3 months, since it is estimated that this period is when the change produced by the probiotic in the intestinal microbiota remains stable for the longest time.

No side effects

Side effects rarely occur due to the intake of probiotics, only in some cases a slight abdominal and intestinal discomfort can be perceived during the first days of taking, due to the changes that probiotic strains produce in the intestinal microbiota.
