‘Probiotic’ is a word that’s often bandied around – but would you be able to define exactly what it means? Not only that, but there is often confusion surrounding the reasons for taking these products.
In a nutshell, probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts offering multiple health wins. Typically, they’re added to yoghurts or taken as food supplements – plus they’re often described as ‘good’ or ‘friendly’ bacteria. They work by enhancing digestion and restoring normal flora.
What’s more, they’re really safe to take.
Probiotics help rebalance the bacteria in your gut, particularly following disruption from an illness or treatment. There is evidence that they can help to ease some of the symptoms of conditions including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Equally, there is, of course, a recognised link between gut health and overall wellbeing.
Additionally, there are further potential advantages for the immune system, cholesterol levels, women and children’s health, skin condition, and in dealing with allergies and asthma.
What are the indications that I might benefit from probiotics?
If you’re experiencing gut problems including bloating, discomfort, acid reflux, IBS or irregular bowel movements, a probiotic supplement as part of a holistic approach to gut health and well-being could really help.
Poor sleep, food intolerances, low mood, frequent UTIs and joint pain often provide further, lesser-known indicators that you might benefit from these products.
It can initially seem overwhelming to choose the probiotic supplement that’s right for you. The key is to choose a product containing well-researched strains whose benefits have been proven in clinical trials.
