By Jayton Miller
Do you think you’re ready to take Floracil50, our popular probiotic supplement, for your gut health? If so, great! Floracil50 contains the best probiotic strains in an easy to use, effective formula. But before you jump in, you might still have a couple of questions about how exactly to use Floracil50. Who should take Floracil50? When the best time is to take it, and whether or not Floracil50 really works?
We understand. You want to know just what those healthy bacteria strains are and why they can help with issues like poor digestion, bloating gas and other gut health problems.

Before we get into the meat and potatoes of Floracil50, it is good to have an understanding of what probiotics are, and how we came to know about them.
“Probiotics” is an umbrella term that describes a number of friendly bacteria that make up the gut microbiome. There are an estimated 500 different types of probiotics; the majority of these have been cataloged but otherwise have received next to zero scientific research. This post will identify some of the more well-documented probiotic strains and their diverse roles in digestion and gut regulation, but first let’s take a quick look at the history of probiotics.
A Brief History of Probiotics:
It is thought that the fermentation process was discovered by accident. However, the origin of fermented food goes back nearly 10,000 years. Legend has it that yogurt was discovered accidentally in the Middle East when people transported bags of milk from regions with low humidity to hotter areas.
Fermenting vegetables has been common practice in China since 300B.C. to increase the shelf life of food.
Japan has also been fermenting soy products for thousands of years, and kimchi in the Korean peninsula is thought to have originated around the same time. People thousands of years ago understood that the fermentation process could help them store foods longer during extreme weather conditions, but people didn’t know about the health benefits until the last hundred years.
Elie Metchnikoff is the pioneer of probiotic research. In the early 1900s, he postulated that fermented milk could improve human health.
He also developed a theory that toxic gut bacteria cause aging. Around the same time, in 1905, a Bulgarian scientist named Stamen Grigorov discovered the primary strain of lactic acid bacteria used to produce yogurt that would later be named L. delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus after his home country.
Elie Metchnikoff took an interest in the relatively long lifespans of peasants in Bulgaria who consumed yogurt regularly.
He theorized that it was the bacteria in the yogurt that caused them to live longer than other groups. In the 1930s, a Japanese doctor named Minoru Shirota posed that healthy gut bacteria present in foods like miso soup could reduce the incidence of gut disease.
Research on probiotics reached a dead end that wouldn’t be revisited seriously until the late 1900s. In 1974, researchers coined the first definition of probiotics. They defined probiotics as live organisms that contribute to the gut health of a host animal.
Throughout the 1990s, researchers began finding the potential of probiotics to aid the immune system and ward off disease. By 2007, the global sales of probiotic ingredients and supplements increased to $14.9 billion in the U.S. By 2025, sales are anticipated to reach $71.9 billion.
The Main Probiotic Strains and Subtypes:
Probiotic strains are further classified into subcategories, and each of these sub-species has a different effect on the body. We will identify these types followed by the subtypes.
This is perhaps the most common probiotic strain and is readily available in fermented foods, such as yogurt, miso soup and kimchi. Lactobacillus’ main function is to assist in digestion. Certain subtypes from this species assist in lactose digestion for those whose bodies normally struggle to absorb milk sugars. In this post, we list the most common sub-strains for lactobacillus. Still, we are not biased toward this probiotic; we give it the most attention because it is the most commonplace and documented species.
Some of the common lactobacillus subtypes include:
- Lactobacillus Acidophilus – This strain subtype is so common and useful that we dedicated an entire article to the benefits of L. Acidophilus. In short, L. Acidophilus treats diarrhea, lowers cholesterol, and may even promote dental health. The mouth, after all, is another body part teeming with both good and bad bacteria.
- Lactobacillus Reuteri – We also did an entire article on the benefits of L. Reuteri. This probiotic strain has health benefits you might not expect from a probiotic. For one, it improves thyroid function. It also improves sex drive and even prevents balding in men. Who would have thought?
- Lactobacillus Rhamnosus – Studies suggest that this probiotic strain boosts immune health. Research shows that it increases phagocytic activity in the blood, meaning it protects the body from foreign cells, free radicals and dying cells.
- Lactobacillus Plantarum – In a 2012 study, subjects that supplemented with L. Plantarum saw a greater reduction in abdominal pain and bloating compared to a placebo group. All subjects had been previously diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome.

Bifidobacterium is also found mainly in fermented foods and is a lactic acid bacterium. Its functions include breaking down foods, enhancing nutrient absorption, and preventing invasion of pathogenic bacteria. This strain is also found in large quantities in the vaginal wall, making it a useful aid for treating vaginal infections. Bifidobacterium types include:
- Bifidobacterium Longum – This is known for anti-inflammatory properties and protects the mucous membrane wall. This probiotic strain breaks down carbs, including some cereal grains that the human body otherwise cannot digest. This also happens to be one of the ampler probiotics present in human breast milk.
- Bifidobacterium breve – Some strains are also food for the brain. Studies show B. Breve may preserve cognitive function and offset Alzheimer’s disease in older men and women. Research also suggests it plays a role in skin health and preventing eczema.
- Bifidobacterium Infantis – This probiotic is found in your gastrointestinal tracts as well as in the oral cavity. Studies suggest it may assist in a number of issues directly or indirectly related to digestion, including chronic fatigue syndrome, ulcerative colitis, and psoriasis.
This is the strain colloquially known as baker’s or brewer’s yeast. The strain treats acute diarrhea that mainly affects children. It is also useful for adults prone to traveler’s diarrhea or diarrhea caused by antibiotic use. It may also have use for alleviating lactose intolerance. Saccharomyces include:
- Saccharomyces Cerevisiae – The main functions of this sub-strain include treatment of diarrhea, most notably diarrhea from the rotavirus. Research suggests it may possibly be effective for treating acne. This probiotic is also referred to as S. Boulardii. To be more precise, S. Boulardii is actually a sub-strain of Cerevisiae. In other words, it isa sub-strain of a sub-strain.
- Saccharomyces Pastorianus – This strain helps to break down glucose and fructose. Combined with other Saccharomyces, studies show it may also offset colitis and inflammatory bowel disease.
Take the Different Types of Probiotics Together
As you can see, a lot of the probiotic types and their sub-strains have overlapping qualities. There is also a raging debate regarding the efficacy of multi-strain probiotics versus those that contain a single strain. Is more necessarily better? While we certainly believe in quality over quantity, there is actually evidence to suggest that multiple strains may have a synergistic effect and increased potency.
