The Power of Probiotics
With over 70% of the body's immune system being located in the gut, it really goes without saying, "as goes your gut, so goes your health".
Whether you are someone trying to shed some unwanted weight, someone looking for better overall health and wellness or someone who routinely battles digestive issues, there is a very good chance probiotics can help.
Probiotics, “friendly” bacteria, can assist your body in regulating the balance of intestinal microflora. Without getting too scientific, this balance is critical to keep the harmful and friendly bacteria in your gut controlled.
In very simple terms, think "good" guys and "bad" guys fighting a constant battle in there.
The bad guys will almost always outnumber the good guys unless we do some simple, yet specific things, to increase the good guys numbers...like supplementing with a daily probiotic.
Take a minute to see just what the benefits of probiotics are...
Probiotics Strengthen the Immune System
Evidence suggests that probiotics are extremely helpful in maintaining a stable immune system. Whenever the immune system is failing to function properly, due to inefficient pathogenic organisms, consuming friendly bacteria, AKA, probiotics (the good guys), can turn things around and offer benefits that enhance overall immunity.
Probiotics Help Ailments
Despite the fact that probiotics are still being thoroughly studied, they have been proven to help with several types of specific illnesses. According to research from Yale University, probiotics are effective in treating or preventing the following ailments:
- Childhood diarrhea
- Ulcerative colitis
- Necrotizing enterocolitis, a category of inflammation and infection which occurs in the intestines of infants
- Antibiotic-associated and infectious diarrhea
- Prevouchitis, an intestinal inflammation that can possibly require surgery
- Eczema occurring due to cow’s milk allergy
Probiotics Offer Benefits Against a Variety of Diseases
Apart from the above mentioned characteristics, probiotics were also deemed to offer beneficial outcomes for battling a variety of diseases. These were as follows:
- Irritable bowel syndrome’s symptoms
- Diarrhea due to C. difficile bacteria
- Crohn’s disease
More and more research continues to be carried out on finding further benefits offered by probiotics, but there is little question by the millions and millions who use probiotics daily, of their benefit.
You can be almost certain adding probiotic supplementation will provide you with at least a few benefits.
If by chance you choose not to use the 3D Labs Nutrition FloraMode, be sure, when you make your probiotic decision, you opt for a supplement that provides strains which have been tested, and proven, to offer beneficial outcomes.
You will also want to be certain that your supplement of choice contains both Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, two of the most studied and proven strains of probiotics available.
Remember, probiotics can certainly be found in some foods, however, just like with Omega-3-Fatty Acids, the chance of getting the amounts you need and want are almost impossible from food alone.
Supplementation is truly key to long-term health and wellness.
You only have one life to live, one body to live it in…so take care of it. Progress, not perfection.
Good, better, best with your food intake and some form of “movement” daily.
Get your nutritional foundation from food, supplement where necessary, and drink plenty of water.
