What Are Probiotics?
Probiotics are naturally occurring live bacteria that are available in food such as fermented vegetables and live yoghurt. The meaning of the word probiotic is ''promoting life'. Probiotics help to populate your gut with good bacteria.
Are Bacteria bad for me?
After decades of trying to eradicate bacteria with soap and antibiotics, we are coming to a greater understanding of the symbiotic relationship we have with bacteria in our bodies. While some make us sick, others play essential roles in digestion, human immunity and are even thought to produce chemicals that determine our moods. Around 100 trillion microorganisms and 500 different species live in every healthy bowel. These microorganisms are generally not harmful, quite the opposite! Gut-dwelling bacteria keep pathogens (harmful microorganisms) in check and are essential to many digestive processes that enable us to absorb nutrients from food, and they are consequently at the very heart of immune function.
How do Probiotics Work?
When gut bacteria become out of balance, for whatever reason, it would appear humans become out of balance too. Our gut is populated with a delicately and regularly evolving kaleidoscope of gut bacteria: there are good bacteria and bad bacteria, and the situation changes according to diet, antibiotic use etc. When we have an imbalance and the bad bacteria are winning, we are more likely to get sick and even depressed (Gut bacteria produce neurochemicals such as serotonin and dopamine that regulate basic psychological processes). Probiotics seek to redress a gut imbalance. It is now believed that the human gut needs to be diversely populated with a range of competing microbial inhabitants to be fully healthy.
Are probiotics safe?
When people first start taking probiotic supplements, there's a tendency to develop gas and bloating in the first few days. Apart from these temporary symptoms, probiotics are generally safe. Some people, however, should avoid probiotics either in foods or supplements, and they include people with weakened immune systems or cancer patients. Speak to your doctor about any concerns.
When do I need Probiotics?
If you are struggling with digestive issues or have had courses of antibiotics in the last 3-5 years, you may consider a probiotic supplement.
Can I source probiotics from food?
Yoghurt, Kefir and Sauerkraut are excellent sources. A low-glycemic, whole food diet that includes healthy proteins, fats and fibre, along with probiotics, can improve the health of your gut significantly. Prebiotics are also beneficial non-digestible carbohydrates that provide food for friendly bacteria. Food sources include beans, garlic, onions and leeks. Xylotene from Sweet Cures acts as a prebiotic.
Will probiotics survive stomach acid and make it to the digestive tract?
Probiotics must survive in the acidic gastric environment if they are to reach the small intestine and colonise the host, thereby imparting their benefits. Lactobacillus species are considered intrinsically resistant to acid.
When is the best time to take a probiotic?
The best time to take probiotics is alongside your meals. Right before or just after the meal is best for getting the most out of our probiotics. Taking your probiotic with food provides a buffering system for the supplement and aid its safe passage through the digestive tract. Taking alongside a healthy meal provides the best chance of getting the most out of your probiotics.
What's the best storage method for probiotics?
In a cool, dark place.
