We are a nation obsessed with our guts, from bloating to bowel issues, many of us have problems with our digestive systems and this appears to be on the rise. Our digestive system can be easily upset, an unhealthy diet, stress, antibiotics and travel can all trigger off problems.
Our digestive system is home to trillions of bacteria, which is more micro-organisms than the rest of the entire body put together. Our gut ‘micro’ flora is comprised of a mixture of both ‘good’ bacteria and ‘bad’ bacteria both living and working together in harmony until such a situation occurs that may upset this fine balance.
A healthy gut needs a positive balance of good bacteria, such as Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli.
What is the role of Probiotics?
Probiotics are not only known to defend our body, they have other functions that help in maintaining our health
Why might you choose to take a Probiotic?
When the balance of ‘good’ bacteria and ‘bad’ bacteria fall out of equilibrium, health issues may occur. The following list highlights some of the reasons why the levels of beneficial bacteria may decline?
Why Choose Grown By Nature's Re-Natured® Prebiotic + Probiotic?
Grown By Nature is a probiotic presented in a powder form, it consists of 8, friendly bacteria which are necessary for the normal functioning of the gut and a small amount of the beneficial prebiotic, Fructooligosaccharides.
L. acidophilus and bifidobacterium species are normal inhabitants of the human gastrointestinal tract and are the main bacterial strains within the Grown By Nature, Probiotic formulation. These beneficial bacteria along with the ***prebiotic fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are considered safe and offer excellent health attributes as follows:-
**Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) provide nourishment to most types of beneficial/friendly bacteria; FOS is not a source of nourishment for toxic/harmful bacteria. FOS is also known to help increase the absorption of both magnesium and calcium.
***Prebiotics are non-digestible foods that make their way through our digestive system and help good bacteria grow and flourish. Prebiotics keep beneficial probiotic bacteria healthy. They can then multiply faster in the gastrointestinal tract as prebiotics selectively feed probiotics.
When prebiotics and probiotics are combined, they form a symbiotic relationship, because they contain both live bacteria and the fuel in the form of the prebiotic that they need to thrive.
It is essential that we get the balance of our intestinal flora functioning properly as it is thought to have dramatic influences on the human body. It is considered that this alone can affect our personal state of health and well-being and is also considered to be a key factor in our longevity.
