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.

  • AMAZING!

    star

    Seriously an amazing product for my 8 year old son. He suffers multiple food allergies and for about a month he was having 'sticky poos' that were highly irritating and he kept having undie accidents. It was becoming a major issue. I figured I would give the probiotics a go to help his gut and see if it helped. One night... it took one night and his bowel motions were back to normal! My son has a very sensitive system so things generally work quickly on him (which can be good and bad). One thing that was great also is that he thinks it tastes wonderful and is happy to just eat it off the spoon followed by some water, (I thought I would give it a go but erm... I didn't like it so much lol). Usually with vitamins etc they add in too much flavour and his tongue starts stinging. We have had no troubles with this product for that at all. I'd definitely recommend trying this product. It was really good to be able to tell that the product was effective as often you just don't know. Enjoy your day :)
