Are you bloated after a meal? Suffer abdominal pain? Constipation or diarrhoea? Flatulence? Heartburn or indigestion? Itchy or inflamed skin?
Your gut could be lacking essential nutrients required for optimal health.
Ever since probiotics were discovered over 100 years ago, researchers have been fascinated by the relationship between the gut and our general wellbeing. They have moved on from a supplement you take after a course of antibiotics, to reducing the symptoms of a range of medical conditions:-
• Prevention and treatment of a range of diarrhoea
• Symptomatic relief of candidiasis
• Manage allergies, including eczema
• Prevent respiratory infections
• Reduce dental caries
• Support and strengthen the immune system
• Maintain healthy urogenital flora and manage urinary tract infections
There are several new and different strains of probiotics now available to treat gastrointestinal symptoms. There is a multitude of products, and professional advice is needed to make sure you get the right one for your particular symptoms.
Probiotics are not the only solution to the complex problems that your digestive system can produce. Supplements with strange names such as Glutamine or Quercetain as well as Fish Oil are important in the three stages of healing the gut.
1. Healing the inflamed intestinal mucosa
2. Preventing further damage
3. Re-establishing healthy intestinal flora
