best time to take probiotic foods

Recommended Posts

Do you need to take probiotic foods such as sauerkraut on empty stomach to get the maximum benefit since the release of acids can kill the good bacteria before they reach the gut? Most probiotic pills are advised to take on empty stomach by the manufacture.

Many probiotic bacteria, but not all, survive the acidity of the stomach, especially when eaten as part of a meal. Some probiotic pills contain other types of friendly bacteria, so the pill coating is designed to survive the acid environment of the stomach and release the bacteria at a later point in digestion.
