And let's not forget the essential...

Why are probiotics so important?

Probiotics are can help restore the natural balance of bacteria in your gut when it's been disrupted by an illness or treatment from day to day stress to over the counter medication.
Probiotics are live microorganisms. When taken in sufficient amounts, they can help restore the natural balance of gut bacteria. As a result, health benefits may follow.
Research shows taking probiotics may help improve symptoms of mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, stress and memory, among others. It can also help with weight issues and fnailly (more importantly) an adequate amount of probiotics will help your gut absorb some vitamin & minerals. In turn, your body will feel better.

How can I increase the good bateria in my gut (and therefore see some benefits)?

At Evolution Organics, we believe that supplements are there to supplement a good diet. But some vitamins, minerals, ect are harder to get in adequate quantities through food.
Live probiotic cultures are found in fermented products like yogurts and kefir. Fermented foods like pickled vegetables, tempeh, miso, kefir, kimchi and sauerkraut.

The problem with only getting probiotics from foods is that you might not want to eat any of the above daily and also you might sometimes needs to eat quite large amount.
For an easier option, getting a supplement is easier.

How much probiotics should I take?

This depends on so many factors from lifestyle, diet, to overall health. If in doubt, start with a basic probiotic such as Optibac Every Day - 30 capsules and then see how you get on. I tend to recommend a 3 months course of probiotics then every so often.
Also, ensure you try to eat fermented foods even if you take an oral supplement. Rice with a side of kimchi is delicious (with hot sauce!), sauerkraut in a sandwich, and yogurt with fruits is a winner too.
