Probiotics are live microbial food ingredients that have a beneficial effect on health when taken in the right amounts. It’s not clear yet exactly how probiotics have these effects, but research shows that they play an important role in improving digestion and intestinal health as well as the helping to regulate and stimulate the immune system.
Probiotics can help restore and then maintain the beneficial microflora balance, reducing symptoms such as bloating. We’re most in need of probiotics when we’ve taken antibiotics (which can kill the beneficial flora along with the bad bacteria), have digestive upsets, or are stressed.
Apart from times such as when we use antibiotics and the benefits of probiotics are quite obvious, there is increasing evidence that the daily supplementation of probiotics improves both intestinal and immune health.
Previous generations had higher intakes of probiotic organisms via fermented vegetable and dairy foods, but this intake as part of diet has been lost as these foods have become less common due to refrigeration being used as the means of preservation.
ProVen Probiotics should be considered essential for anyone currently taking or recently having taken antibiotics. Similarly, anyone with any type of intestinal condition be it as mild as bloating or as severe as Inflammatory bowel disease should take a Proven Probioitic. Newborns are another group who could benefit massively from probiotics. People travelling overseas or indeed anyone who simply wants to improve their intestinal, immune and general health should consider ProVen Probiotics. In short – whatever your circumstances, there’s a ProVen Probiotic to suit you.
