Probiotics - 20 Billion live Bacteria per capsule

To achieve optimum health, the body needs balance. This is why a healthy diet and a balanced lifestyle helps people to live their life to the full. It is important to achieve a healthy balance for optimum health. Read on to understand the importance of it for your general well-being.

Probiotics Are Friendly Bacteria

Both good and bad bacteria are naturally found within the human body. Don't be too concerned about the presence of bad bacteria because through the intake of Probiotics - which act as friendly bacteria - you'll be able to maintain a natural balance.

After birth, the digestive tract is free of any kinds of bacteria, but as infants progress from just having milk to having a solid diet, their digestive system begins to have a colony of probiotics as well. This colony remains up until adulthood to help in regulating the population of bacteria in the gut.

What are great sources of it?

The body cannot produce probiotics by itself, and can only acquire it from various external sources. Some excellent sources include:

  • Dairy products such as yogurt, fresh milk, and cheese
  • Kefir
  • Dark chocolates
  • Sauerkraut
  • Miso
  • Pickles
  • Kimchi
  • Tempeh
  • Soy-based drinks

Most external sources are in the form of fermented or cultured products. They allow the healthy growth of natural and friendly bacteria which are beneficial for our bodies. While you have the option to purchase dark chocolates or enjoy it in yogurt, you may not be getting enough in a day to benefit from their positive effects.

Not everybody likes fermented food and some are even intolerant to dairy products. This, along with the fact that it is much easier to consume makes taking Probiotic supplements a better choice when it comes to getting the required amount.

Understanding Probiotics

While they are naturally occurring in certain food items, capsules may indeed be your ideal source of these friendly bacteria. Every tub contains 30 capsules, with each one packed with healthy bacteria which you may be missing out on. Probiotics help to promote a wide range of beneficial health actions for your body.

General Benefits

One of the best known benefits of probiotics is that it helps to maintain a healthy digestive tract. It is also notable for its effectiveness for sufferers of irritable bowel syndrome. There are bacteria in the gut which help in the proper breakdown and digestion of essential food particles. It helps in the absorption of nutrients from the food we eat and at the same time battles the growth of bacteria which may cause digestive pains.

For the digestive system, here are the benefits:

  • Reduces pains from irritable bowel syndrome
  • Regulates proper bowel movement
  • Prevents diarrhoea
  • Reduces bloating and gas
  • Eases the movement of the stomach walls when digesting food

However, it does no’t only provide benefits for the digestive system but has a number of other positive health effects on the body. It helps in the following ways:

  • Microflora in the intestines, Probiotics can help in regulating the right levels of cholesterol
  • May help conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, some skin infections especially due to bacteria, Crohn’s disease, lactose intolerance, some auto-immune reactions, and certain allergic reactions.
  • May help with weight loss as some studies have shown that obese individuals have a different level of bacteria in the gut which may be regulated through proper intake of probiotics.
  • Can support the immune system and make it stronger in warding off viruses and potential diseases. It may help in the stimulation of how the immune system cells grow. For both children as well as adults, this helps in preventing infections of the respiratory and digestive system.
  • For women it also helps in the sense that they act as natural antibiotics which can help in reducing the risks of getting uro-vaginal infections.
  • Pregnant women may especially get benefits from it because it may help counter bacterial vaginosis. This also promotes improved foetal health.

Benefits of Probiotics for Children

While there are general benefits, parents should read plenty of information about Probiotics before giving them to their children. Before your child takes Probiotics please consult your doctor or paediatrician to establish whether it will be a safe practice for your child.

From natural sources, children may experience the following beneficial effects:

  • Stronger teeth: Taking it may help in naturally battling oral bacteria, and this may promote the growth of healthier teeth. This also helps in preventing tooth decay to keep their milk teeth in good condition.
  • Shortens bouts of diarrhea:– Children who have a healthy intake of probiotics but suffer from diarrhea have shorter bouts compared to those who do not have it in their diet. For frequent bouts of diarrhea, it is also beneficial.
  • Relief from digestive pain: Sometimes kids have to adjust to the food they eat and may experience indigestion or constipation. These supplements therefore may help in properly breaking down the food to allow for better food absorption and digestion. Pain from such cases can decrease when eating rich probiotic sources.

Relevant Information about Probiotic Strains

Being able to benefit from probiotics may depend on what strains are in a supplement. Various probiotic strains have different effects on the body, and not all kinds of strains can provide benefits for our health. This is why the strains in every capsule of Probiotics have been carefully selected so that you can benefit from the amazing effects it can have on your body.

When combined with other ingredients, the quality may change as they are very sensitive. They also undergo a careful process of production because these live bacteria work best when kept in good conditions. Microencapsulation is one effective process to surround it with kind of micro outer coat.

The main strains used and contain in every capsule include:

  • Bifidobacterium longum
  • Bifidobacterium infantis
  • Bifidobacterium breve
  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus
  • Lactobacillus casei
  • Lactobacillus bulgaricus
  • Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Streptococcus thermophilus

These strains are contained inside a capsule which can survive the acidic areas of the stomach, only to release to the gut where they can do most of their numerous probiotic actions. An acid stability test which has pH 2.0 for about 2 hours showed that the capsules of Nature Supplies Probiotics can successfully reach the gut.

Proper Dosage and Probiotics Side Effects

To fully benefit from the effects of probiotics in your system, taking 1 but no greater than 2 capsules a day is advised. Probiotics do not contain wheat, dairy, gluten, added sugars, preservatives are artificial colouring.

The reason there are little or no side effects with Probiotics is because the body really needs this kind of bacteria. However, when adjusting one may experience some mild digestive discomforts but these will go away once the body has become accustomed to these supplements. Usually, this only happens to individuals who have an extra-sensitive digestive system. Before consuming these capsules on a daily basis, consult your doctor about it and discuss what dosage would work best for your current state of health. This is especially important if you have other health conditions, are taking medication which may cause contraindications, or have a particularly sensitive digestive system.
