–Over 70% of your immune system is located in your digestive system.
–Having a good ratio of "good" and "bad" bacteria is critical to your optimal health. The ideal balance is 85% good & 15% bad.
–Consumption of antibiotics, dietary changes, cigarette smoking, fluctuating stress levels and pollution are some of the causes of microflora imbalance your gut doesn't warn you about.
How it affects Senior Citizens?
Aging and consumption of medications such as antibiotics cause the good bacteria in our digestive tract to decline. So older adults bear greater risk of suffering from digestive complications such as constipation, diarrhoea, and irritable bowel syndrome and other major illnesses resulting from a compromised immune system.
How it affects Adults?
Most digestive problems come from lifestyle imbalances, unwholesome foods, and stress. The general working adult population. It is more exposed to these elements has lower body immune system and it would develop frequent colds and flu which may affect the entire family. Bad breath can be an embarrassing problem caused by these unhealthy lifestyles. It can seriously affect one's personal and social life.
What is Probiotics?
Probiotics are GOOD bacteria that keep your natural balance of microflora and promote digestive health.
Benefits of 6 strains Probiotics as below:
✅ Increase resistance to gut infections by inhibiting pathogens and improving host immunity
✅ Reduces the chances of acute diarrhea and even helps fight E.coli infections
✅ Break down body waste, increasing stool frequency, reduce constipation
✅ Aid in the absorption of nutrients
✅ Strengthen the immune system
✅ Reduce colds and flu
✅ Produces vitamin K as well as lactase, the enzyme that breaks down lactose
✅ Provide living bacteria that help the body absorb nutrients and keep a healthy balance of good bacteria
✅ It produces lactic acid which helps lower pH levels in the digestive system and impedes the growth of harmful bacteria
✅ Improve and promote digestion
✅ Control diarrhea
✅ Helps eliminate and prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in the intestines.
✅ Promoting and maintaining digestive tract health.
✅ Is a lactic acid bacterium that produces lactase, which facilitates the digestion of lactose in milk
✅ Decreases the symptoms of malabsorption - a disorder that occurs when people are unable to absorb nutrients from their diets
✅ Reduces the risk of antibiotic associated diarrhoea
Probiotics even could create HEALTHY GUT and HAPPY MOOD?! 😲
Probiotics is well known for its benefits to prevent diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome, yeast infections, eczema and other conditions. Now, study has shown that healthy gut could create HAPPY MOOD!! 😊
