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

  • Counteracts effects of high doses of medication

    I have been taking these probiotics for sometime mainly to counteract the effects of the medications I have to take daily. I'm sure they help maintain a healthy balance in my whole body.

  • This stuff WORKS! We take it whenever we're about to travel and during, when the body is exposed to new bugs and has an extra busy schedule and these wonderful tablets have kept us feeling well and strong throughout many travels.

    Slightest inkling of cold & flu, I pop 3 of these 3 times daily and wow, all gone cold symptoms. They truly WORK. My husband and I are about to travel again and I'm buying another bottle of 90. We feel so good while we're on them, we carry on taking them until the bottles empty again!! And we know that we'll stay well while we're away. Thankyou to System Well.

  • works as promised

    easy to take, neutral tasting product- works as it should- well worth a try for anyone with a "sluggish" bowel (slow transit constipation)
    the powder can also be used to ferment foods- a teaspoon added to grated fresh coconut will make a beautiful coconut yoghurt
