Why do some people need probiotic supplementation?
The bacterial diversity and the number of probiotic bacteria can decline for a variety of reasons. Overuse of antibiotics, chlorine in drinking water and high fat and high sugar diets all play a role, as well as our mother's health, infant birth and feeding method. Other factors also play a role, such as the ingestion of intolerant foods and inflammation within the gut. Inflammation within the gut caused by inflammatory diseases and consuming foods that produce an IgG immune response decrease probiotic adhesion to the gut wall, allowing other pathogenic microbiome to thrive. Combining three of the most researched strains of probiotics; Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei and Lactobacillus rhamnosus provides a therapeutic tool in the management and prevention of immune and gut disorders, as well as encouraging neonate health.
