Probiotics is a general term for living microorganisms (bacteria or yeast) that are often called "friendly bacteria". They have considerable health benefits for your body.
The digestive system hosts over 500 different types of bacteria that keep your intestines healthy, assist in digesting food and boost your immune system. Probiotics balance the microorganisms naturally found in your body, reduce the harmful bacteria and help you develop healthy digestion.
Research is ongoing, but Probiotics help in treating both irritable and inflammatory bowel disorders, intestinal problems (bloating, diarrhea, gas and constipation), acne and eczema in children. There are indications that probiotics can help treat stomach ulcers, infections (urinary, vaginal, GI, sinus and respiratory) dental disease, allergies and liver disease. Tests are ongoing to determine if probiotics can prevent the recurrence of colon cancer.
There are many types of probiotics and different probiotics have different effects. To determine which probiotic is best for you, "Shop By Condition" or contact Dr. Pam for a consultation.
