Your gut microbiome plays an integral part in overall health. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that can help support a healthy gut.

Beneficial probiotics can quickly be introduced into your diet by foods such as yoghurt, or through supplements in the form of tablets, powders, or incorporated in foods such as drinks and cereals.

What are Probiotics?
Probiotics are live microorganisms that help feed the microbiome in your gut, providing a healthy environment for your gut bacteria to thrive. Probiotics are found naturally in fermented foods such as sauerkraut, yoghurt, and kimchi. They are also available in supplement and powder form with different strains helping target specific conditions and age groups. The most common strains used in commercial probiotics include lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. In combination with a balanced diet and an active lifestyle, probiotic supplements can aid digestion and improve your overall health.
Benefits of Probiotics
Aside from improved digestion, immunity, and skin, studies have shown that kids who take daily probiotic supplements for more than three months are less likely to develop food allergies and skin disorders such as eczema psoriasis. Moreover, children prone to suffering from stomach problems such as constipation or diarrhoea can benefit from probiotics. Probiotics can also repopulate the gut microbiome after a course of antibiotics. This can help ease the side effects such as stomach pain, constipation, or diarrhoea that can occur from antibiotics.
Probiotics supplements are not all made equal. Shelf stability, variety of strain, species types, and manufacturing processing contribute to a quality probiotic supplement.
