BIOCARE PROBIOTICS

BioCare Live bacteria help maintain the balance of bacteria within the gut and digest foods properly. It may also be important in non-allergy related food intolerance reactions due to improved digestion and better absorption of nutrients.

The live bacteria in Biocare probiotic supplements are living microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host. Probiotics can be consumed through fermented foods or supplements because they are ‘friendly bacteria" that live in the gut and have a positive influence on many aspects of human health.

Biocare probiotics supplements are designed to fortify your "good" gut bacteria in order to fight "bad" bacteria so to help your digestion and keep your gut healthy.

Probiotics promote healthy gut bacteria and have been linked to a wide range of health benefits including weight loss, digestive health, immune function and more.

Probiotics Help Balance The Friendly Bacteria in Your Digestive System

These benefits are thought to result from the ability of probiotics to restore the natural balance of gut bacteria. An imbalance means there are too many bad bacteria and not enough good bacteria. It can happen due to illness, medication such as antibiotics and poor diet. Consequences can include digestive issues, allergies, mental health problems and obesity and more.

Probiotics are usually found in fermented foods or taken as supplements. What's more, they appear to be safe for most people.

Probiotics Can Help Prevent and Treat Diarrhea

Probiotics are widely known for their ability to prevent diarrhea or reduce its severity.

Diarrhea is a common side effect of taking antibiotics. It occurs because antibiotics can negatively affect the balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut. Several studies suggest probiotic use may reduce the risk of diarrhea.

Probiotics reduced the risk of travelers' diarrhea by 8%. They also lowered the risk of diarrhea from other causes by 57% in children and 26% in adults. Effectiveness varies, depending on the type and dose of the probiotic taken.

Probiotic Supplements may Improve Some Mental Health Conditions

An increasing number of studies link gut health to mood and mental health. In one study, taking probiotic supplements for 8 weeks decreased depression levels and reduced levels of inflammation compared to people who did not take a probiotic

Certain Probiotic Strains Can Help Keep Your Heart Healthy

Probiotics may help keep your heart healthy by lowering LDL ("bad") cholesterol and blood pressure. Certain lactic acid-producing bacteria may reduce cholesterol by breaking down bile in the gut. Bile, a naturally occurring fluid mostly made of cholesterol, helps digestion. By breaking down bile, probiotics can prevent it from being reabsorbed in the gut, where it can enter the blood as cholesterol.

Some probiotics may also reduce inflammation in people with milk or dairy allergies. However, the evidence is weak and further studies are needed.

Probiotics Can Help Reduce Symptoms of Certain Digestive Disorders

Millions of people suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. Certain types of probiotics have improved symptoms in people with mild ulcerative colitis. Probiotics may have benefits for other bowel disorders. Early research suggests they may help with symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS

Probiotics May Help Boost Your Immune System

Probiotics may help give your immune system a boost and inhibit the growth of harmful gut bacteria. Also, some probiotics have been shown to promote the production of natural antibodies in the body. 

Probiotics May Help You Lose Weight and Belly Fat

Some probiotics prevent the absorption of dietary fat in the intestine. The fat is then excreted rather than stored in the body.

Probiotics may also help you feel fuller for longer, burn more calories and store less fat. This is partly caused by increasing levels of certain hormones. They may also help with weight loss directly.

The Best Way to Benefit From Probiotics

You can get probiotics from some foods or supplements.

Live probiotic cultures are often found in fermented dairy products such as yogurts and milk drinks. Fermented foods like pickled vegetables, tempeh, miso, kimchi, sauerkraut and soy products may also contain some lactic acid bacteria.

You can also take probiotics as tablets, capsules and powders that contain the bacteria in dried form.

However, be aware that some probiotics can be destroyed by stomach acid before they even reach the gut - meaning that you get none of the intended benefits. Biocare take care to ensure that their live bacteria probiotic supplements can be properly absorbed.

If you want to experience any of the health benefits discussed above, it's important that you consume adequate amounts.

Most of the studies showing benefits used dosages of 1 billion to 100 billion live organisms per day.
