More about probiotics
Probiotics are live bacteria that boast numerous health benefits. They provide the human gut with multiple supportive functions. Often referred to as "beneficial bacteria", these microorganisms help to digest lactose, protein, regulate bowel motility and keep the GI tract, functioning optimally. As the majority of our immune system is housed within the digestive tract, maintaining a healthy gut is essential for overall health and wellness. There are actually more bacterial cells in the human body than there are human cells. Many strains of "good" bacteria exist but most research has been conducted on a few selected strains -notably, the lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidobacterium bifidum strains.
What the studies say
Research shows probiotics can reduce negative effects of taking antibiotics, like diarrhoea, which can be caused by antibiotics negatively disrupting the balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut. Recently research is showing strong links between gut health and mental health. Studies have shown taking a probiotic supplement can support mood balance and stress levels.Further reading and references
