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

  • Game changing

    Taking this regularly has completely changed my bowels for the better. My migraines which accompanied my symptoms have greatly reduced, nausea is gone, and my head feels clear and not foggy. One capsule works well, but I will take 2 if I'm unwell or I can't eat super clean. Great stuff.

  • Took these while on antibiotics

    Took these while on a course of broad spectrum antibiotics. These prevented me from developing a yeast infection which I always get while on antibiotics so great for that. I also suffer from nausea pretty much all the time from other meds I am on, but since taking this everyday I no longer need anti nausea tablets.

  • I'm a fan of these

    These pills are tiny but pack a punch! After a long bout of antibiotics I noticed that my gut just wasn't it's normal self. After a few days of taking these pills my gut felt much better, they helped my regularity a lot and my general sluggish-ness improved. I a huge fan of these pills and would highly recommend.
