Probiotics and Digestive Health

Probiotics and Digestive Health


Hi, this is Dr. Chen and welcome to another fit tip. Probiotics are often called “good” or “friendly” bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy. All humans naturally have colonies of good bacteria that live inside the stomach and intestines. But when antibiotics, stress, or a poor diet, among other factors, lay waste to these friendly flora, bad bacteria rush in to fill the void. And when bad bacteria prevail, illness strikes. Even a short-term good bacteria imbalance can lead to diarrhea, bloating, and gas. And over time, the disparity can contribute to more serious problems. Probiotics help restore the healthy balance of bacteria in the gut when it becomes disrupted. They attach on gut lining, starving bad bacteria of food so they die and are eliminated. Keeping the gut healthy also helps ensure the immune system functions well, stimulates the digestive system, and aids in the absorption of nutrients. Good sources of probiotics include yogurt, miso, sauerkraut, kombucha, tempeh, and other fermented foods with active cultures. However, many people simply don’t care for the taste of them. An alternative is to take a probiotic supplement. A supplement is also advisable and handy to take when you are traveling with a strong stomach and immune system are especially important. To help replenish helpful bacteria and support a balanced digestive tract, there’s nothing better than the probiotic dietary supplement VitaDophilus®.
