Unless you’ve been living under a probiotic-free pebble, you probably know how important probiotics are in the business of keeping your gut happy.

Found in fermented foods, cultured milk or supplements, probiotics are the tiny microorganisms or “good bacteria” that may assist with a variety of digestive problems like constipation, Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and lactose intolerance.

Medical experts have found that the brain communicates with the gut and the microbes (bacteria, viruses and fungi) that line your stomach, colon and intestines. The microbes are in constant communication with your brain, affecting everything from your mood, emotions, sleep, metabolism and health.

Thus, the benefits of probiotics go beyond just healthy bowel movements, as a healthy digestive system could lead to improvements in mental health and the immune response. New studies are also looking at the effects of probiotics on both oral and dermatological health. By aiding in protein absorption, these good bacteria may also help your body recover after a workout and reduce muscle strain.

As concerns rise about antibiotic-resistant infections, probiotics could be powerful protective and healing agents that work seamlessly with our natural body systems.

In addition to adding more fermented foods to your diet, like kimchi and kefir, consider the Releaf Probiotic Range which includes Releaf Probiotic 12-Strain, Releaf Probiotic Melt 12-Strain, Releaf Probiotic Active 12-strain and Releaf Probiotic kids chews. Results of evidence-based analysis from human studies and animal models suggest that probiotics have the potential for clinical effectiveness on intestinal diseases, including infectious diarrhoea, antibiotic-associated diarrhoea, atopic diseases and irritable bowel syndrome.
