There are many products, including most yogurts with active cultures that contain Lactobacillus acidophilus. While Lactobacillus acidophilus is a beneficial probiotic, it is not the same as Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG (LGG). The latter has been proven in scientific studies to diminish the incidence of eczema in children and to help with weight loss. Read the label carefully to be sure you're a getting a product that contains LGG.
Lactobacillus Rhamnosus has been shown to survive passage through the human gut to support the body in overcoming both pathogens and parasites.
Probiotics are naturally occurring live bacteria that are available in certain foods. Fermented vegetables, sauerkraut and live yogurt are examples that we all know of. The meaning of the word probiotic is "promoting life" and that suggests that they have a very important role in health because probiotics help to populate your gut with good bacteria.
After decades of trying to kill bacteria with soap and antibiotics, we are coming to a greater understanding of the symbiotic relationship we have with bacteria in our bodies. While some make us sick, others play essential roles in digestion, human immunity and are even thought to produce chemicals that determine our moods. Around 100 trillion microorganisms and 500 different species live in every normal, healthy bowel. These microorganisms are not normally harmful. Quite the opposite in fact! Gut-dwelling bacteria keep pathogens (harmful microorganisms) in check and are essential to many digestive processes that enable us to absorb nutrients from food, and they are consequently at the very heart of immune function.
When gut bacteria become out of balance, for whatever reason, it would appear humans become out of balance too. In fact, our gut is populated in a delicately and regularly evolving kaleidoscope of gut bacteria: there are good bacteria, bad bacteria, and very bad bacteria and the situation changes according to diet, antibiotic use etc. When we have an imbalance and the bad bacteria are winning, we are more likely to get sick and even depressed (gut bacteria produce neurochemicals such as serotonin and dopamine that regulate basic psychological processes). Probiotics seek to redress gut imbalance. It is now believed that the human gut needs to be diversely populated with a range of competing microbial inhabitants for us to be fully healthy.
Since the mid-1990s, clinical studies suggest that probiotic therapy, replacing gut bacteria with probiotics, can help treat several gastrointestinal ills, delay the development of allergies in children, and may boost our overall health vis a vis chronic auto immune conditions.
Two possible interventions for lactose intolerance are the supplement of lactase (tablets) or the addition of probiotics.
A probiotic supplement, by increasing the number of friendly bacteria in the large intestine, is thought to reduce the symptoms of IBS in the following ways:
When people first start taking probiotic supplements, there's a tendency to develop gas and bloating in the first few days. Apart from these temporary symptoms, probiotics are generally considered safe. Some people, however, should avoid probiotics either in foods or supplements, and they include people with weakened immune systems, or cancer patients. Speak to you doctor if you have any concerns.
If you are struggling with digestive issues like constipation, diarrhea, acid reflex, irritable bowel, or leaky gut, or you have had courses of antibiotics in the last 3-5 years, you may need a probiotic supplement.
Yoghurt, Kefir and Sauerkraut are excellent sources. A low-glycemic, whole food diet that includes healthy proteins, fats and fibre, along with probiotics can improve the health of your gut significantly. Prebiotics are also highly useful non-digestible carbohydrates that provide food for friendly bacteria. Food sources include beans, garlic, onions and leeks. Xylotene from Sweet Cures acts as a prebiotic.
Probiotics must survive in the acidic gastric environment if they are to reach the small intestine and colonize the host, thereby imparting their benefits. According to the NIH , Lactobacillus species are considered intrinsically resistant to acid.
The best time to take probiotics is alongside your meals. Right before or just after the meal is best for getting the most out of our probiotics. By taking your probiotic with food you provide a buffering system for the supplement and aid its safe passage through the digestive tract. Taking alongside a healthy meal provides the best chance of getting the most out of your probiotics.
