The term ‘probiotic’ means supporting life. Probiotics are friendly, beneficial bacteria. While there are hundreds of different strains of bacteria that live in the digestive tract, some strains are more prevalent in children including; Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium bifidum & Lactobacillus acidophilus. These bacteria (as well as others) are normal inhabitants of the large and small intestines and are an important part of a healthy digestive system.
Probiotics can be impaired through stress, illness, antibiotics treatment, or changes to the diet. Thankfully they can also be brought back into balance through the introduction of the right balance of supplemental probiotics. Research shows that taking probiotics can help to improve gastrointestinal function, respiratory and allergy response, as well as help to counter the negative effects of antibiotic use.
Further, these beneficial bacteria help the body to
- produce vitamins
- absorb nutrients
- control overgrowth of bad bacteria and fungus.
Probiotics are one supplement that is essential to buy 'good quality' (it's live bacteria; if it's dead when you get it, it does you no good!); click HERE to see a pdf with great tips on what to look for when choosing a probiotic brand.
