Dealing with gut problems on the reg will 100 percent mess with your mood. Latest studies show that consumption of a specific probiotic can improve both gut symptoms and psychological issues in IBS. In addition to sticking with fresh fermented foods, we recommend keeping an eye out for products from credible brands that enhance their foods with live bacteria as part of their core mission.
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you, especially your digestive system. We usually think of these as germs that cause diseases. But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy.
When you lose “good” bacteria in your body, for example after you take antibiotics, probiotics can help replace them.
They can help balance your “good” and “bad” bacteria to keep your body working the way it should.
Probiotics help send food through your gut by affecting nerves that control gut movement. Probiotics has been shown to improve conditions such as:
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Infectious diarrhea (caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites)
- Diarrhea caused by antibiotics
- Skin conditions, like eczema
- Urinary and vaginal health
- Preventing allergies and colds
- Oral health
