Healthy digestion is a major priority here at mindbodygreen. Not only is it unpleasant when things aren’t running smoothly— the importance of a strong digestive system runs even deeper. Functional medicine practitioners consider the gut to be the center of health. So supporting strong digestion and nourishing the good bacteria in the gut are key to overall well-being.

This is one of the reasons mbg developed probiotic+. It’s one of the only probiotic supplements on the market with four key strains that work together to aid proper digestion and nutrient absorption.* Plus, one of the strains (Bifidobacterium lactis HN019) improves average gut transit time and promotes healthy daily functions of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract.*

That’s why it was exciting to have top experts in medicine, nutrition, food, and fitness share how mbg’s probiotic+ supplement helped them support healthy digestion—both personally and for their clients.* Here’s what they have to say.

“I’m grateful to have found a brand I trust.”
