Scientists are now proving what Wise Owl have been saying about probiotics all along…
What Symptoms Can Probiotics Help?
Research and studies have shown that probiotics not only help the digestive system directly but can have a positive impact on many areas of the body:
|Irritable Bowel Syndrome|
|Inflammatory Bowel Disease|
|Asthma and Allergies|
Probiotics not only help many symptoms and conditions but they also aid absorption of many important nutrients, ensuring your body takes in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fats from our diets. In fact, probiotics are required for the production of some B vitamins, folate and vitamin K.
Variety of Strains
It’s not possible to make a product which is identical to and which exactly reflects a healthy intestinal flora, and it would be different and unique for each person. Therefore, the key objective is to make a selection of strains, depending on the product is going to be used for. For example, a product that is designed to stop traveller’s diarrhoea will contain other strains than a product that is especially developed to be used during an antibiotic treatment. Whereas a “general” probiotic, we try to make a selection of strains that contain as many probiotic properties as possible to treat as many symptoms as possible.
The “Gut Brain” Connection
What does the gut have to do with the brain? Scientists have discovered that the gut and the brain communicate via hormones, the nervous system and the immune system. Microbiome (microorganisms) release neurotransmitters similar to our own neurons, communicating to the brain. The science behind this explanation is complex, but to explain it in simple terms; how we think and feel can result in physical symptoms. For example, if we are faced with a dangerous situation our body responds by the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis and goes into “fight or flight” mode. During this process our heart pounds, body hairs stand on end, our pupils dilate and natural adrenaline floods our systems to give us strength to be on alert to defend ourselves. In fact, even the platelets in our body change shape so that if we are physically attacked, we bleed less. This goes to show that any type of stress or response to a situation can have a powerful effect on our physical bodies, our systems and consequently, our health. Although the “fight or flight” response might save our life in a situation, it may also have a negative impact on our gut bacteria.
How Do Probiotics Reduce Stress and Anxiety?
If we are living under chronic stress whether it’s mental or physically draining us, we can get symptoms of clinical depression and anxiety, but what does this have to do with the gut? During these times, some of us experience high blood pressure, headaches and chronic gut problems. Our body releases inflammatory cytokines, chemical messengers that alert our immune system and our body responds as if the stress is an infection. Therefore, if you have chronic stress, your body thinks it has a chronic infection such as autoimmune diseases, ulcerative colitis, multiple sclerosis and depressive disorders. The gut plays a significant role in regulating our immune response, making a difference in our mental and physical health.

DID YOU KNOW
Recent news has reported that scientists in California have improved their understanding of Parkinson’s Disease significantly. Their experiments and research has concluded that the brain disorder could be caused by bacteria in the gut. In fact, the evidence is so strong that they are suggesting it could lead to new ways of treating the disease with probiotics. The debilitating disease damages the brain resulting in extreme tremors and difficulties in mobility.
