A digestive supplement you should be taking daily
Once we start consciously observing our body connected to health and nutrition it is often difficult to know where we are going. There are so many things that are claiming to be the way to go guaranteeing success if you follow along.
Among them is the trend for probiotics – to eat more curd, kombucha and sauerkraut – but is taking them as a supplement the right decision? And if yes, is this a good fit for you?
As probiotics are a natural part of the bodies environment, we know that they are good for us. Probiotics are microorganisms (microflora) that reside in our intestines. They are the kind of good bacteria which you want to keep as they keep harmful microorganisms in check, aid in proper digestion and nutrition absorption and support the immune system. They have been researched extensively showing many positive results for different types of conditions. They crowd out bad bacteria, preventing it to host in the body, which leads to infection, inflammation and disease. Another way in which probiotics impact the health of the body is by improving the digestion. Good levels of probiotics in the gut have been effective in irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease. They support the body in absorbing nutrition.
Since we know that probiotics help the body how do we know if your body needs them? Probiotics are present in our body so we only have to supplement them if they have been depleted.
Have a look at the list below for signs that indicate deficiency to see if they need to be added.
Antibiotic means anti-life, which is the exact opposite of probiotic, which means anti life. Antibiotics are designed to kill bacteria in the body, all of them including the good ones. So if you have taken a round of antibiotics you might want to take probiotics to bring back the healthy gut flora.
If you recently ate something that didn’t sit right, there is a good chance that bad bacteria made a home in your body. Probiotics will help in fighting off the bad guys and get your bowel movements back to normal.
If your gut has not been functioning correctly and you are suffering from digestive problems consider using probiotics. Often the addition of this healthy bacteria can eliminate the symptoms without the need of further treatment.
If you get sick from the flu every year and catch everything that goes around consider taking probiotics. They have been clinically found to boost the immune system and strengthen the body’s defense mechanism.
Are you confused? Probiotics and Prebiotics?
Probiotics provide beneficial bacteria that colonize the GI track with optimal amounts and types of bacteria to protect against inflammation and support immunity and healthy digestive function.
Prebiotics are a form of soluble fiber that helps to feed the good bugs in your gut. When you consume prebiotics, the fiber goes through the small intestines undigested and then are fermented when they reach the large colon. This fermentation feeds the good bugs.
