We are all becoming aware of how important it is to look after your wellbeing. If you're looking to add a dose of good bacteria to your daily routine, then you want to make sure you're getting the supplement that's best for you.

We’ve caught up with gut microbiologist Dr Kate Stephens to ask her help on how to choose the right live cultures supplement. “There are a growing number of live cultures supplements available. So it can be difficult to know where to start. I would always recommend popping to your local health food store or pharmacist for advice.”

Dr Kate’s Top Tips:

Choose a supplement that:
1. is formulated to support your individual needs.
2. is guaranteed to reach the gut alive.
3. contains well-researched clinically trialled strains. High strength doesn’t always mean high quality.
4. can be stored at room temperature and not refrigerated.
5. has great customer reviews – check what others say about the supplement.
