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.
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
Would definitely buy again!
Very easy to take, just one a day, no need for refrigeration! The one thing I noticed with this product was a decrease in bloating! My abdomen was far less swollen. Will continue to take.
I use this daily with IBS Support and has helped me immensely... don't know where I would be without it!
I have suffered from IBS for years and this is the only thing that has made me feel normal again. I use this daily as well as probiotica.. and digestive enzymes when I eat a large or not so healthy meal and it has worked wonders! Highly recommended!
