The Best Probiotics for Gut Health in Australia Right Now

A healthier gut can be the key to unlocking a swathe of health benefits but with so many probiotic supplements on the market, choosing the right one can be confusing. We've rounded up the best probiotics for gut health in Australia.

Probiotics used to be something recommended only if you’d been prescribed a hefty course of antibiotics by your GP — but research now suggests that gut health is something we should be trying to support every day.

The full extent to which our gut microbiome affects the health of our skin, immunity, digestive system, how we age and even our mental health is still not fully understood — but recent studies suggest that there’s a strong evidential link between the health of our gut and each of these pieces which make up our overall health and wellbeing.

Take a walk down the aisles of your favourite beauty retailers, chemists, and even your local supermarket and it won’t come as a surprise that the supplements market is booming, with hundreds of powders and pills lining shelves. The gut health market in particular, is showing no signs of slowing down — being recently valued at $48.4 billion USD, but is projected to reach $104.4 billion by 2032.

Probiotics are one of the most scientifically proven ways to help support and improve your gut health, and the market reflects that — with more options available than ever to give that gut flora a helping hand.

Whether you want a supplement that you don’t have to keep in the fridge, a powder that you can easily mix with water or a gummy that tastes just like a sweet treat, we’ve found the probiotic for gut health to suit you.

Remember: it's always best to talk to your doctor before taking any new supplements to be sure they're right for you. If symptoms persist, talk to your health professional. Always read the label and follow the directions for use.
