Probiotic supplements are cultivated bacteria and yeasts that are known to be the most beneficial to human health. There are thousands of strains of these micro-organisms that make up the "gut flora" in most human intestines, some of which we are born with, some of which are obtained from unwashed food, others from fermented foods such as yoghurt, sour milk, sauerkraut, etc. Not all strains are beneficial but a healthy body manages its population of intestinal flora, normally without problems. The important point is to provide it with the raw materials for such a healthy colony, which often doesn't happen when the fresh food we eat has been washed until it is almost sterile, or when antibiotic treatment is required. Our probiotic supplement contains a whopping 20 billion cfu (colony forming units) per capsule of the most beneficial bacteria.When to Take a Probiotic:
‘Good’ bacteria are essential to overall health. Under ideal conditions around 90% of all the bacteria in the body are ‘good’ or beneficial and they can keep the ‘bad’ or harmful 10% in check. When conditions are not ideal, due to illness, infection, taking antibiotics, poor diet, lack of fruit and vegetables or an excess of processed foods, salt and sugar for example, the balance is thrown out and the numbers of harmful bacteria increase.By supplementing your diet with a good probiotic, you can keep the beneficial bacteria in your body at optimum levels, which then prevent harmful bacteria from taking hold and creating major illness.
Dosage: Take one capsule a day with or after a meal
Contraindications: Some people may experience stomach upset, gas or bloating for the first few days. If you have immune system issues please speak to your GP before taking probiotic supplements.
Probiotic supplements may also help:
It’s important to take a probiotic supplement that includes a variety of bacteria, as different strains have different effects. Our probiotic contains a blend of:
Our capsules are ‘delayed release’, which means the bacteria survive long enough to reach the gut.The capsules are made of vegetable cellulose, making them suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
I take these due to having to take low dose antibiotics daily. Hopefully they will be helping to produce the correct gut flora needed to replace what the antibiotics knock out.
