Why Probiotics?

The human digestive tract is home to a large and dynamic community of between 300-500 different species of bacteria (microflora), both beneficial and harmful. The major functions of the gut microflora include: the fermentation of non-digestible foods such as starches, cellulose, pectin’s, unabsorbed sugars; vitamin synthesis; the absorption of several minerals; enhancement of digestive tract motility; production of short-chain fatty acids and to provide a protective function between the host and alien microbes. Seventy percent of the immune system resides within the digestive tract and the microflora play an important role in the development of a competent immune system.

 

 

It is suggested that (bad) gut microflora may play a role in some disorders including inflammatory bowel disease, colon cancer and autoimmune diseases.

The small intestine contains only a few species of bacteria comprised mainly of microorganisms known as lactobacilli, while the large intestine also contains lactobacilli, one of the most predominant species is the Bifidobacterium genus.

Alterations in the balance of good vs bad intestinal flora (Dysbiosis) are caused by the use of antibiotics, psychological and physical stress, altered digestive tract peristalsis and dietary changes. 

Signs and symptoms of gut dysbiosis include: Abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea (travel-related, antibiotic-related), flatulence, indigestion, pain on urination and itchy skin.

Treatment

Probiotics should be included in the treatment plan for: IBS, Candida infections, urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal symptoms, allergies (including eczema), during/post antibiotic use, overseas travel, inflammatory bowel disease (Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s disease), gastroenteritis, radiation-induced diarrhoea and lowered immunity.

Probiotics are different according to the genus (e.g. Bifidobacterium, Lactobacilli), species (L. acidophilus, L. rhamnosus) and strain (Shirota) and while all probiotics are therapeutic some species are more effective than others in certain conditions.
CBD Pharmacies stocks a wide range of probiotics to meet all health requirements, please do not hesitate to request a free consultation with our Naturopath, Sue Wilby.
