Are you confused about probiotics?

What are they, who needs them, and which ones are effective? Probiotics are naturally occurring, beneficial microorganisms that can support the health of your gut as well as your immune health, 70% of which is located in your gut. But an unhealthy diet, stress, and antibiotics can disrupt the body’s balance of “good” and “bad” microorganisms, affecting digestive, urogenital, respiratory and immune health.

Your body is home to several communities of bacteria and other microorganisms. Each bacterial community plays a vital role in keeping that organ or part of your body healthy. Every organ that is lined with a mucus membrane has it’s own distinct group of bacteria which help to keep your s that are lined with a systems functioning optimally. Here are the 4 main bacterial communities:

  1. Respiratory System
  2. Gastrointestinal System
  3. Genito-urinary System
  4. Immune System

When your bacterial community is disrupted due to antibiotics, infection, stress or a poor diet, targeted probiotics support the rebuilding of your bacterial communities with specific strains of bacteria. Not all probiotics are the same. Their effects on digestive health are strain-specific. That’s why there are numerous types of probiotic formulas. The formula you choose should indicate the genus, species, and strain.
