Probiotics Info

Probiotics is the generic name for various strains of ‘life promoting’ living bacteria which are beneficial to the human digestive tract. We need probiotics in sufficient quantity to maintain our gut health, which is integral to having strong immune function - 70% of our immunity is in the gut. Within our gastrointestinal tract are over 500 different strains of bacteria with diverse health promoting functions. Combined gut flora weighs between two and four kilograms in the average adult!

The balance of healthy versus unhealthy micro-organisms in the body is a delicate one, easily upset by diet and lifestyle factors, antibiotics and environmental toxins. When balance is compromised, disrupting the gut microflora (known as dysbiosis) and unwanted bacteria begin to proliferate, our immune response is weakened and infections gain hold. Probiotic supplements can redress the balance, strengthening our immune system and restoring harmony to the digestive tract.

Healthy intestinal balance is also necessary for synthesis of many B vitamins and improves the absorption of essential minerals.

Probiotics Benefits

With the right dietary intake we develop a healthy intestinal balance and resilient immune system in the first 2 to 3 years of life. Throughout our life various environmental and lifestyle factors can temporarily disturb this balance. The following are all indications for taking a probiotic supplement:

  • After antibiotic, anti-inflammatory or chemotherapy medication 
  • Inflammatory bowel conditions 
  • Infections or compromised immune system 
  • Abdominal cramps, bloating, flatulence, constipation and/or diarrhoea 
  • Candida overgrowth 
  • Unhealthy diet or a high stress lifestyle 
  • Hormonal imbalances 
  • Some forms of dermatitis

Probiotics Side Effects

Probiotics are safe when taken as directed.

  • Great value for money

    Feel so much better now that I have stared taking these. Like that they don't have to be in fridge. Easy to remember to take if sitting on bench. Noticed a change within the first week

  • Very Good

    star

    I have been buying this every month for my wife on our doctor's recommendation. But was very pleased to see the 90 capsule bottle for a very cheap price. It is good for the problems my wife has.

  • Remarkable reduction in symptoms of chronic IBD.

    star

    My research in to this product prior to purchase indicated that it was much more likely to assist with Irritable Bowel Syndrome than Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I suffered from IBD and not IBS, but thought it might be worth a try. With persistence, the results have been very positive. From at least several bouts a month lasting days at a time I am now only experiencing occasional (say once every two months) milder bouts lasting a day or two at most. My bowels are more regular and other digestive difficulties diminished. I take one capsule first thing in the morning on an empty stomach with a large drink, six days a week. (Sunday is a rest day.) I am on my fourth large bottle now and will try an extended break soon to see if the results hold.
