Probiotics Info

Probiotics is the generic name for various strains of ‘life promoting’ living bacteria which are beneficial to the human digestive tract. We need probiotics in sufficient quantity to maintain our gut health, which is integral to having strong immune function - 70% of our immunity is in the gut. Within our gastrointestinal tract are over 500 different strains of bacteria with diverse health promoting functions. Combined gut flora weighs between two and four kilograms in the average adult!

The balance of healthy versus unhealthy micro-organisms in the body is a delicate one, easily upset by diet and lifestyle factors, antibiotics and environmental toxins. When balance is compromised, disrupting the gut microflora (known as dysbiosis) and unwanted bacteria begin to proliferate, our immune response is weakened and infections gain hold. Probiotic supplements can redress the balance, strengthening our immune system and restoring harmony to the digestive tract.

Healthy intestinal balance is also necessary for synthesis of many B vitamins and improves the absorption of essential minerals.

Probiotics Benefits

With the right dietary intake we develop a healthy intestinal balance and resilient immune system in the first 2 to 3 years of life. Throughout our life various environmental and lifestyle factors can temporarily disturb this balance. The following are all indications for taking a probiotic supplement:

  • After antibiotic, anti-inflammatory or chemotherapy medication 
  • Inflammatory bowel conditions 
  • Infections or compromised immune system 
  • Abdominal cramps, bloating, flatulence, constipation and/or diarrhoea 
  • Candida overgrowth 
  • Unhealthy diet or a high stress lifestyle 
  • Hormonal imbalances 
  • Some forms of dermatitis

Probiotics Side Effects

Probiotics are safe when taken as directed.

Product Reviews

  • A very good product

    I use this product for Bacterial vaginitis. I have had it dor 3 1/2 years. I tried this product with very good outcome. Previously have been to Dr, Dr and ankther Dr with all sorts of creams etc to pop up you know where. None of these things worked. And i had to do it night after night after night, week after week , month after month. Its very demoralising for sure. The pn I bought this product. I do not take it by mouth, you know what Im saying.
    It hasnt totally cleared it up but at least it keeps it at bay. I can have days off in between now. And because it 90% works I dont mind having to do this every other night. I say its very successful. Everything Ive read about this problem nobody can get rid of it.
    Primadophilus Reuteri, I love you.

  • Best probiotic!

    This is the best probiotic I have ever tried. I noticed a different right from the start. It stopped me having to run off to the toilet all the time and also reduced bloating. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who has irritable bowels.

  • I think they help

    I got these as a gift with purchase. It is hard to tell but I think they work. They have a nice taste and I would definitely be open to using them again in the future
