Just about anyone who knows a little something about digestion has heard of “Probiotics.” They’re supposed to be the magic bullet of the digestive tract– “miracle pills” that cure digestive problems just by adding “good bacteria.
Yes, some bacteria are the good guys, and they mostly reside in the digestive tract performing all kinds of useful duties. They provide 70% of the strength of the immune system that protects you from the bad guys.
Still sick? Maybe you need more bacteria.
Sometimes your digestive system needs help– when you start seeing the symptoms of indigestion– that’s where Probiotics come in. Many of you may have tried Probiotics to get rid of diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, indigestion, and the most bothersome of all digestive ailments, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
And what happened? More than likely absolutely nothing, right? You can’t expect Probiotics alone to get rid of conditions overnight that took years to produce
The best Probiotics work in all 3 areas.
Since most Probiotics work on only 1/3 of a digestive tract that measures almost 30-feet long— that leaves about 2/3 of the tract— the stomach, small intestine and colon that still need to be treated.
A good supplement will itemize the contents on the label. So, when buying Probiotics, be sure to read to label and get as many different enzymes as possible— not just acidophilus. But remember, don’t rely on Probiotics alone for proper digestion, as they will not overcome the lack of good, wholesome nutritious food. Good health all starts with good digestion!
