What is Probiotic
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that reside on and in the human body. The GI tract, in particular, contains trillions of live probiotic bacteria known as the gut microbiome that play a vital role in health and wellness. Research shows Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium probiotic strains are the most beneficial for human health.
Benefits of Probiotic
- Regulates digestion and supports a healthy gastrointestinal tract
- Encourages nutrient synthesis and absorption
- Promotes a strong immune system and eliminates pathogenic bacteria
- Improves mood and promotes neurological health via the gut-brain axis
How it Works
As a cornerstone of digestive wellness, probiotic bacteria in your digestive tract increase nutrient absorption. They break down food and synthesize nutrients like folate, vitamin B2, vitamin B12, and vitamin K2.
Research has shown supplementing with probiotics may prevent and reduce digestive symptoms like cramps, gas, constipation, diarrhea, and inflammatory bowel disease. These bacteria ferment carbohydrates and fiber in the digestive tract, producing short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) like lactic acid, acetic acid, and butyrate. These compounds provide gut cells with energy and restore gut barrier function.
Several clinical studies have shown that taking probiotics could reduce the frequency and severity of respiratory infections. This is because the gut microbiome is your immune system's first line of defense, keeping harmful microorganisms in check to prevent you from falling ill.
Additionally, probiotics assist with regulating mood and neurological health by communicating with the brain via the enteric nervous system (ENS).
Unfortunately, the health and diversity of probiotic bacteria are damaged by processed food, a low-fiber diet, stress, aging, smoking, pollution, and the overuse of antibiotics. This allows pathogenic bacteria to grow out of control, leading to digestive symptoms, allergies, skin conditions, weight gain, and even depression. Luckily, taking a probiotic supplement can help you repopulate and rebalance your gut microbiome!
