More than 2000 years ago, Hippocrates suggested that all disease begins in the gut, and modern medicine continues to demonstrate that, very often, this is indeed the case. The gut has many functions central to health including digestion, absorption, immunity, detoxification and elimination. However, many factors of modern living such as stress, poor diet, excess alcohol, illness and antibiotic use, can adversely affect gut health.
Probiotics are live microorganisms that help to keep the digestive system healthy by ameliorating the growth of harmful gut microbes and boosting the number and diversity of beneficial gut microbes. An imbalance of gut microflora may play a key role in the development of some gastrointestinal symptoms and disorders.
Replenishing gut microflora with a multi-strain probiotic supplement offers a simple and effective way to support the gut, and therefore overall health and wellbeing.
