Probiotics for digestive and immune support

What are probiotics?

There are trillions of good live bacteria in our gastrointestinal tract, this is part of the gut microflora.  These help to maintain a strong immune and digestive system, so an optimum balance of this bacteria is really important. Many factors can affect the balance of the gut microflora such as taking antibiotics, colds and infections, stress, travel or unhealthy nutrition and lifestyle. smileyface_dia.jpgkey_for_smiley_face_pic.jpg Taking a probiotic supplement can restore the balance of the gut microflora and can help with conditions including IBS, inflammatory bowel, lactose intolerance, leaky gut or to keep your stomach settled if you're going away on holiday. Another good time to take it is alongside antibiotics - antibiotics can strip away the good bacteria, which might make you feel rundown and unwell.

The use of probiotics in athletes

Athletes who take part in prolonged intense or heavy training are more susceptible to upper respiratory-tract infections and gastrointestinal illnesses. Intense exercise can increase the inflammatory response and stress on the body. Probiotic supplementation can help to replenish depleted beneficial gut microflora and maintain a healthy gut lining and regulate the immune system. Athletes or people who train regularly can take probiotics to reduce anxiety and stress response to exercise, improve mood and support the digestive system. It also helps with the production of B vitamins. _84635862_pa_athletes.jpg

If you're taking antibiotics or if you are feeling unwell with a cold, flu or infection, it's a great time to take these supplements to make sure your probiotic intake is topped up, to boost your immune system and help you feel better. bio-kult-flower.gif Athletes and individuals who train regularly can benefit from this supplement due to the increased exercise induced stress on the body and increased protein intake. It is recommended to take 1-2 capsules, once or twice daily. The best time to take it is with food, but it is fine to take it at any time.
