With it still being the beginning of the year, hopefully, you haven’t given up yet on your goals to live a healthier life as a healthier you. Although diet and exercise are the two components that will get you on the right track, taking things like probiotics will help regulate your digestive system. But what are probiotics exactly and how can they benefit your health? Read on to learn more.
What Are Probiotics?
Probiotics are a healthy type of live bacteria and yeast that are said to aid in the health of your digestive system. By balancing the good and bad bacteria in your body, probiotics help to regulate your digestive system and overall digestive health. Specifically, probiotics work to treat patients who suffer from illnesses like:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Infectious diarrhea (caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites)
- Antibiotic-related diarrhea
How Can You Get Probiotics?
You’ve likely seen the commercials for yogurt filled with probiotics with actresses like Jamie Lee Curtis claiming that they have helped her feel better than ever before. As the most popular way to get probiotics, yogurt is a great way. However, Dr. Jack Bertolino also offers patients the ability to get these same health benefits but in pill form with a series of pills called the Ultra Flora line. Filled with pure strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium lactis, this patented formula will aid you in getting optimal gut health.
By ridding your body of harmful bacteria and coating your gut with good bacteria, you can live a more comfortable and healthy life. In addition to a strict diet and frequent exercise, taking probiotics (especially if you have an illness like IBS) will help to regulate your digestive system.
