What Are Probiotics?

Probiotics such as acidophilus are micro organisms that are beneficial for the human host. Probiotics can be naturally found in the body, and play a key role in digestion and immunity.

What Do Probiotics Do?

Probiotics support your digestive health; producing specific enzymes needed in digestion of food. As well as aiding the break down of foods substances, probiotics improve the absorption of vitamins & minerals into the bloodstream. Probiotics even produce B complex vitamins & vitamin K.

Probiotics support your immunity by stimulating the body’s natural defences, and by lining the intestines with a protective layer of friendly bacteria that bars pathogenic substances in the gut from harming the body. As two-thirds of the body's immune system is managed in the gut, it is important to keep one's probiotic levels high.

A Delicate Balance

Disruptions to the balance of probiotics in the gut can compromise the beneficial roles that they play in the body. People with an imbalance of probiotics and pathogens in the gut may experience poor digestion, lowered natural immunity and a large variety of conditions such as:-

  • Low Energy Levels
  • Poor Immunity
  • Bloating
  • Food intolerances or Allergies
  • Acne, Eczema
  • Indigestion, Heartburn
  • Excessive Gas
  • Constipation or Diarrhoea
  • Candida Overgrowth and/or Thrush
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Research has shown the benefits to digestion, health and immunity for people who supplement their levels of probiotic bacteria.
