Probiotics Could Change Your Life

Scientists are now proving what Wise Owl have been saying about probiotics all along…

The word probiotic means “for life” or “promoting life.” Probiotics have been researched throughout the years and significantly lately, and the results have been astonishing. In fact, you may have seen probiotics more in the news recently as surprising revelations have discovered that friendly, good bacteria have more and more benefits than originally thought. The enormous range of conditions that benefit from probiotics is far more extensive than anyone could have ever imagined. Ranging from respiratory conditions such as asthma to inflammatory bowel disease and even healthy brain function.Most of us know that probiotics are good for getting good bacteria into our system. Probiotics are microorganisms that live in our intestine to keep pathogens limited and to aid good nutrient absorption and healthy digestion. Pathogens are harmful bacteria that can contribute towards disease developing in the body. The digestive system can be affected by poor diet, antibiotics, stress and travel and when the body is under these conditions, candida fungus can quickly invade the good bacteria. Probiotics ensure that there are good bacteria in the body, helping to barrier any growth of candida fungus, assisting our digestion and general wellbeing.

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
Ulcerative Colitis
Asthma and Allergies
Skin Disorders
Urinary Infections
Sugar Cravings

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.

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.
