In recent years there has been a rising trend of people looking to improve their digestive health, it’s long been a neglected part of our health however now as more research is undertaken there seems to be a lot more going on inside of us than was first realised.

Inside of our body we all have a huge amount of bacteria, yeasts and similar that together create our internal flora which is the collection of microorganisms that live within our digestive tracts. When these are out of balance or when we have a certain ‘bad’ bacteria that is elevated, this is when issues can occur including bloating, lethargy, flatulence and more.

These microorganisms have many functions including the fermenting of dietary fibre which creates short-chain fatty acids, synthesising certain vitamins (e.g. vitamin B and K) in addition to metabolising sterols and bile acids. Whilst there is a lot to take in here, the main takeaway is that our gut health plays a large role in our general health and taking care of it is something that we ought to take seriously.

Probiotics are yeasts and live bacteria that can be added to various products including yoghurts and foods supplements, with the aim to promote a healthy gut environment.

These ‘good bacteria’ are intended to restore the natural balance within the gut, those who may be of particular benefit are those who have been ill or have been on antibiotics and consequently have an out of balance internal flora.

Although probiotics may benefit some, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables (with the associated fibre) should be the main priority as the nutrients from the fruits and vegetables has a dramatic effect on the gut, flora and our digestive health.

Those Who Probiotics May Be Beneficial For
– Those with persistent bowel discomfort

– Those looking to correct and maintain their balance of ‘friendly’ bacteria

– Those with bloating issues and/or wind

– Those who have been on antibiotics

– Those with lethargy
