Studies have increasingly shown that probiotics can help alleviate the symptoms of many types of illness without the use of pharmaceutical drugs. Certain probiotic organisms, “beneficial” bacteria which live in your digestive tract and are part of the natural microflora of your body, are thought to help with immune function and in the prevention of respiratory infections.
However, the most promising area in which probiotics may provide health benefits is in treating digestive ailments. If you suffer from chronic diarrhea, gas, and cramping, you may benefit from the intake of probiotics through diet and supplementation. These conditions, if unchecked, can lead to more serious health problems down the line.
To help avoid diarrhea and gas, you should avoid heavy, greasy foods, and should try to incorporate more food rich in probiotics into your daily meals. You’ve probably heard that yogurt and kefir are great sources of probiotics, but there are other foods you might not be aware have probiotic benefits.
You may also want to supplement your natural intake of probiotics with a supplement such as RobKellerMD® G.I. Balance ™ (GIB) our probiotic supplement to aid digestive health and help control the growth of harmful bacteria. In addition to aiding with digestion, the probiotic organisms contained in GIB may also support your urinary tract and immune system.
Take charge of your health by supporting your body’s natural functions with the addition of dietary and supplemented probiotics for better health and wellness.
