Probiotics

Probiotics are often seen as a staple supplement in the modern wellness world.  You probably know of them, but you may be asking, what are probiotics? Probiotics are considered to be live bacteria and yeasts, that are ‘friendly’ and good for your digestive system. You naturally have bacteria in your body already, both good and bad. They are part of a larger system called your microbiome, which is a community of microorganisms that work together to keep you and your immunity happy and safe. Probiotics are a great way to naturally assist your gut perform at its best. 

Today's lifestyle which involves an abundance of processed junk foods, high stress, and use of antibiotics can throw this balance of good and bad bacteria off. If you’ve had antibiotics for an infection, you will also have compromised the presence of good bacteria, because they attack bacteria indiscriminately. Even if you managed to get through life without directly consuming antibiotics, they are given to animals that we consume as meat, and are also found in processed foods labelled as preservatives. 

Is taking probiotics good for you? Probiotics assist to maintain your general gut health and wellbeing, and this has an effect on the immune system too. You can boost your probiotic intake with fermented foods and drinks, and for a higher dose you can opt for one of many available probiotic supplements in our online store today. The types of bacteria that are most common in probiotics supplements are Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Probiotics also contain good yeast, the most common one being Saccharomyces boulardii. 

There are many different strains of probiotics, some with different functions, so you’ll be forgiven for being a little confused on which one to buy. On some products, you’ll find extra information that may indicate for what or who the probiotics are best used for. Some examples are probiotics for traveler's diarrhea, IBS symptoms, mild anxiety and mood disturbances, or probiotics that can be taken during and after the use of antibiotics. 

When choosing a probiotic, consider whether you need it for travel – you can find both refrigerated and fridge-free versions for convenience. You may want to opt for a specific women’s probiotic, or men’s probiotic. There are different options available for children too, so your kids can have the gut support they need. You’ll even find infant probiotics, carefully formulated to be suitable for your baby.
