What is Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium?
Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium strains form part of a healthy gut microbiome, finishing off the breakdown of food, making vitamins and keeping the bowels moving.
Do we need probiotics?
Probiotics keep your gut healthy and are therefore ideal for anyone wishing to support their gut health by promoting an environment in which "friendly" gut bacteria can flourish. A balanced gut flora has been shown to decrease harmful bacteria, support immune defences, and promote optimal gut function.
What is a probiotic good for?
The gut flora, often referred to as the gut microbiome, is not only a major part of your immune defences against harmful microbes, but also aids healthy digestion, the production of vitamins and the integrity of the gut lining. As if that is not enough, our gut bacteria has also been shown to affect our mood too! The balance of gut flora can however be easily upset by antibiotics, stress, poor sleep and a diet that is low in fibre from foods including vegetables, whole grains, pulses, nuts and seeds. This particular probiotic helps adults and children over eight years to recolonise their guts after illness and infection and to support the gut flora during or after antibiotics.
