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
Very effective product for IBS
I have had IBS for many year now and these bowel Biotics capsules really reduce the effects. They are gentle on the stomach and very effective. I would highly recommend these to anyone suffering from symptoms of IBS,
Excellent for sore throats!
I used a similar product through our local chemist and was pleasantly surprised when I found this one on HealthPost! It works brilliantly for sore throats and if taken at the start of any symptoms can knock it on the head before the sore throat develops!
Satisfactory in bowels conditions
Taken by four persons (two couples, at age aroubd 65~70), for about one month, daily one capsule each.
One man and one woman noticed outstanding improvement from the intestine problems.
A woman's case said the removal of the gas build-up in the intestine, and now feels comforable,
from the inconveniences inspite of doctors' treatments.
My case showed the diffculties in catharsis has been solved, surprisingly.
However, no signifiicant differences have been observed fior rest two cases.
