Probiotics - Supporting your lifestyle with balanced gut health
Our top 5 benefits for taking a daily probiotic to support a settled stomach
A troubled stomach can cause discomfort and havoc in your day to day life - making you self conscious about where the nearest bathroom is at all times, and feeling like you can’t enjoy the foods you like. Adding probiotics into your daily diet can radically change the balance of your stomach, for the better.
What are probiotics?
Your body is constantly producing both good bacteria and bad bacteria. When these bacteria are in balance, you are in generally good health. When you get sick, your body’s bad bacteria increases and overtakes the good bacteria - which throws your body out of balance. Probiotics are a living microorganism of good bacteria and yeast, which naturally thrives in your body. Probiotic supplements can be consumed when our balance is a bit out of whack by eliminating the excess of bad bacteria wreaking mayhem on your insides and restoring order. The bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms that live in your stomach are commonly referred to as your ‘Gut Flora’, and these are prone to becoming out of balance as we consume different kinds of foods, and suffer from different kinds of ills and chills throughout our lifetimes. Every single human’s personal gut and body microbiome is unique to them; no two are the same - not even those belonging to identical twins! That’s why it can come as a surprise when they get thrown off balance at any given time, or why, but probiotics are universal in its support of recovery.
Probiotics can be prescribed when we are told to take antibiotic medications to fight infections, to stop the antibiotics from destroying too much of the good bacteria while it kills the damaging bacteria in order to make us well again. However, Antibiotics don’t discriminate when they target bacteria and end up killing both good and bad which can make our stomachs pretty unhappy. Probiotics work hard for your gut flora to keep the good bacteria from being wiped out completely.
What are the benefits of adding probiotics to your daily diet?
Daily management of your gut flora bacteria balance is important for supporting everyday wellness and comfort for your stomach.
Probiotics support your gut to properly digest your food by promoting the growth of the right kind of bacteria that breaks down everything you eat! Without that bacteria, your body won’t efficiently digest the food your taking - which can lead to stomach upset.
By having a healthy dose of probiotics every day, you are pre-empting the influx of bad bacteria and combattng it from the start. This supports your immune system and can stop ills and chills taking hold so often!
By having a healthy gut balance, your stomach is less likely to cause you stress and make you keep tabs on where the nearest bathroom is at all times. Loose bowels and irregular bowel movements don’t have to rule your life with the support of probiotics curbing the intensity of your gut’s imbalance.
A happy stomach that is digesting food correctly means that the energy consumed from food is sent to the right places, where you need them - giving you the boost of energy you require to live your best life!
