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.

  • Bad constipation

    slow transit to bowel motion. I suffer from ibs and have trouble going toilet for number two. I would get myself into a panic when I went through days without bowel motions. I suffered anxiety attacks and would worry so much that it became a endless cycle. I started on the probiotics.and it took about two weeks before I saw any change. First thing I noticed was the jump in energy. I am sleeping way better than I did before. And I am going toilet for number 2 almost everyday. I am happy about that. My daughter has also started on this product and has also experienced the same thing as me. I love this product!

  • A good Probiotic

    Took this product after finishing a prescribed a high dose course of antibiotics following a dental procedure. It settled my upset digestive system quite quickly with one capsule per day. In hindsight I should have taken two a day because soon after finishing the 30 caps a yeast infection, which I've not had in over 20 years, took hold.
