The Benefits Of Probiotics
Many people still don’t fully understand what probiotics are and what effects they have on their body.
Probiotics are microorganisms or other agents that support healthy flora in the human gastrointestinal tract. Healthy flora helps digest food, maintain the intestinal endothelium, inhibit pathogens and perform other useful functions.
- Four out of five double-blind studies reported benefits to sufferers of irritable bowel syndrome.
- Diarrhea secondary to pediatric viral infections, antibiotic therapy or foreign travel has been prevented or reduced in severity in numerous controlled trials.
- Some success has also been reported in the treatment of ulcerative colitis.
- Some studies have looked at the effect of probiotics on the immune system, and are showing promising remarks.
While several foods, such as yogurt, kefir and sauerkraut contain probiotic organisms, their strains may be quite different and in much lower concentrations compared with the supplements employed in clinical trials.
