When & Why You Should Use Probiotic Supplements

Posted by Henry Maitland on 28th Nov 2016

Did you know that all sorts of bacteria naturally live in your digestive tract, binding with the lining of your intestines to help break down your food, build up your immune system and defend against infections and diseases?

The challenge your body faces is to keep a good balance between this helpful community of microbes, such as lactobacillus acidophilus found in yoghurt, and other invaders that won’t do you any good at all.

It’s not uncommon for your digestion to be disrupted when you are travelling, if you have been unwell or have taken prescribed antibiotics, for example. So, if you are experiencing bouts of diarrhea, yeast infections or allergies it could mean that your body needs some support to restore your natural balance. That’s when an extra boost of probiotics can be beneficial.

It’s important to say that this is a positive choice you can make to improve your wellbeing, but it isn’t an alternative to professional advice if your symptoms are persistent.

The effectiveness of a probiotic supplement, such as Dr Mercola’s range for adults, children and pets, depends on something called ‘colony forming units’ or CFUs. This means that probiotic bacteria contained in your supplement are capable of reproducing and forming colonies - proving that they are alive and can be helpful.

You might be surprised at how many probiotics you need. For general good health you need billions every day, and this number can double or treble if your system is struggling – which is where a supplement can help.

Knowing what your system needs isn’t always easy. Different strains of probiotic can help with different things. At Evolution Organics, we believe that a multi-strain supplement is the best way to reproduce the effects of naturally including extra probiotics in your daily diet.

We have a carefully selected range of multi-strain probiotic formulas from Bio-Kult, Dr Mercola, Terranova and Garden of Life that are all free from gluten, soy and genetically modified ingredients. Get yours today!
