Probiotic supplements

Probiotics are live microorganism compounds, consisting of yeast and bacteria. They are usually added to dietary food supplements but can also be found in foods such as yoghurt. There's a lot of evidence that suggests probiotics will restore the natural balance of the stomach and intestines when it has been disrupted by illness. This is why you may have heard probiotics referred to as the "good bacteria"

What are the signs you need probiotics?

 

If you’ve suffered from bowel-related issues, or are still suffering, after a bout of food poisoning, probiotics may be recommended to kill off any leftover damaging gut flora which is causing symptoms such as constipation or diarrhoea. A lack of healthy gut bacteria can also disrupt the immune system, making a patient more susceptible to illness and infections. Mood disorders, such as anxiety or depression, can stem from a lack of healthy gut bacteria too. This is because the gut flora communicates with the brain’s neurotransmitters that control mood. If a patient is on a course of antibiotics, it is recommended that probiotics be taken after the course is complete to rebalance the gut. This is because antibiotics are unable to determine the difference between “good” and “bad” bacteria, and will therefore kill it all off. Some skin conditions are a result of poor digestive health too, so if topical aids aren’t making a notable difference a course of probiotics might.

 

What are the benefits of probiotics?

 

It's clear that probiotics seem to help keep the digestive system in balance. They appear to do this by reducing inflammation, boosting the immune system, and helping to improve the symptoms of diarrhoea, which may be caused by a course of antibiotics or an infection. Probiotics, particularly lactobacillus and bifidobacterium, may also help to improve the health of those individuals with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), as they are believed to break down nutrients, strengthen the intestinal barrier, and help the immune system to remove harmful bacteria.
