Supplement Spotlight: Probiotics

With all the supplements out there screaming from the shelf that they have what you need, it’s hard to tell what supplements will really do their job. Luckily, probiotics don’t work like vitamins and minerals, because, let’s face it, they aren’t. Probiotics are live (healthy) bacteria that you ingest to help you digest. Naturally, they can be found in foods like yogurt and even sauerkraut, but many utilize probiotic supplements daily as a way of keeping the intestinal tract clean and the immune system hopping.

 

Studies show that probiotic supplements can often help in the treatment of diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome. The idea is that we have tons of bacteria already living in our digestive system, some helpful, some harmful. Probiotic bacteria is helpful in that it aids in fighting bacteria that may or has caused problems, like infection or illness. In a healthy body, the probiotic functions as back up for the current bacteria in stock, allowing it to move throughout the body and aid the immune system in fighting various viruses, infections and free-floating harmfuls.
