What Are Probiotics?
Probiotics literally means ‘good bacteria’. Probiotics are taken to help retain the natural balance between these ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria’s in ones gastrointestinal tract, which helps keep your gut healthy. This is particularly important after taking antibiotics. This is because antibiotics kill the ‘good’ bacteria as well as the ‘bad’ bacteria which can result in an upset stomach. Probiotics are beneficial to your overall health, but their main benefits lie within their ability to aid digestive health. They have been shown to support the absorption of vitamins and minerals in the body, particularly calcium and vitamin B. As well as this, probiotics naturally aid detoxification in the body and help reduce constipation. Probiotics are naturally found in foods such as yoghurts, miso, juices and soy beverages. They are also very common in supplement form including tablets and drinks.
