As we’ve discovered previously, pre- and probiotics are super important, guys. So much so that they can aid in weight management, clearing up skin, and reducing blood pressure. Researchers have even called the gut the “forgotten organ” after now discovering how important it is to our bodily functions. Taking advance of your health is not only responsible, but also (thankfully) oh-so trendy now—so much so that you should display your supplements loud and proud out on the counter for all to see.
With that in mind, we rounded up the coolest and newest pre- and probiotics that’ll not only make you feel great, but their packaging looks great on the outside too. Beauty, as probiotics have proven, isn’t just skin deep. Oh, and a friendly reminder: Pre- and probiotics are like Bert and Ernie, they work best together. Don’t separate them as they prefer to go hand-in-hand. More scientifically: Prebiotics serve as fuel for probiotics, helping the good bacteria thrive in your gut so your probiotics can get to work.
The Nue Co. Prebiotic + Probiotic ($85 for 90 capsules/30 day supply)
The Nue Co. is special for its formulations, which are at the highest quality. In traditional supplements, up to 50 percent of ingredients are fillers, chemicals and preservatives. But for The Nue Co., they remove every unnecessary component so every ingredient is active and organic. Their prebiotic is made of inulin, a soluble fiber that aids in digestion, stabilizes blood sugar levels, and feeds the friendly bacteria in your gut. The probiotic delivers 15 billion spores per dose, all in a unique complex that is designed to survive the pH of stomach acid (super important!).
Founder Jules Miller was inspired to take her health into her own hands and start the company after a long battle with IBS. “I tried everything under the sun,” said Miller. “I realized that looking into the products I was consuming and the food I was eating would be the answer, and it was.” And the science of supplements runs in Miller’s blood too—her grandfather, a chemist and pharmacist, helped create the B12 vitamin supplement.
We’re all human, but The Nue Co. is here to help you be a bit more super-human.
RMS Beauty Within Prebiotic + Probiotic ($64 for 60 capsules/30 day supply)
Beauty Within is the first launch into supplements for celebrity makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift, who knows a thing or two (understatement of the year) about living well. She’s also the founder of the epic, all-natural RMS Beauty, a pure and organic cosmetic line. This pre/pro is launching in mid-February, and is specially formulated with 25 billion CFUs (colony forming units) with 8 probiotic strains, with each strain focusing on a different range of benefits.
Good enough for Gisele’s makeup artist, good enough for us!
The Beauty Chef Glow Advanced Inner Beauty ($70 for 30 day supply)
The natural fermentation process (called Flora Culture) in this glow-inducing powder packs a serious pre- and probiotic punch, and is backed by 25 years of research based on immune and gut health. It’s all about nourishing your insides so you can look radiant on the outside. But this mix also includes antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and amino acids. And never any parabens, sulfates, or phthalates. The brand believes that, “the first step to healthy, radiant skin is balancing your digestive health.” In an independent group study, after one month, 95 percent of users saw improvements in pre-existing conditions of eczema, rosacea, and congestion (and 94 percent felt their skin was more hydrated).
Just add a generous scoop of this powder to water, juice, yogurt, or your morning smoothie, and your gut buddies (and skin) will be feeling fine.
Ora Organic Vegan Probiotics with Prebiotics ($34.99 for 60 capsules/30 day supply)
Ora Organics must have been super busy in the lab working on this capsule, because this one is all study-based and -backed. It contains some of the most clinically documented and acid resistant probiotic strains in the world, which is going to make for “optimal digestive health, immune function, mood balance, hair and skin health, and pathogen fighting support (candida, yeast, bacterial and viral),” Ora reports. That specifically translates to 16 billion CFUs and 6 strains—all certified organic.
