The Best Probiotics for Women

Probiotics—and the microbiome in general—have never been buzzier. The daily supplement that helps to repopulate the body's natural bacterial flora (the good kind) isn't just a key part in a functioning immune system, but also digestion, and even hormonal function, particularly in women. Whether you are looking to keep your body's immune system humming along, want to maintain some regularity, to reinforce your clear complexion, or to give your cycle a little boost, there is a probiotic that is best for your self-care routine.

But, first, if you are thinking about adding a probiotic to your routine, here are some answers to the most commonly asked questions about the probiotics for women supplement.

Should you take it in the morning or at night?

Most brands suggest that you take your supplement on an empty stomach, or 30 minutes before you eat. For ease of routine, morning works best for most people.

How long should you take them?

Probiotics are designed for ongoing maintenance, so ideally, if you choose to include on in your routine, it should be a daily addition.

Should every woman take a probiotic?

It's not necessary to your health, but if you have certain conditions that you have discussed with a physician, it may be beneficial for how you feel day to day.

How long will it take for the probiotic to work?

Typically it takes around 3 or 4 weeks to start to see a change.
