Benefits of Probiotic Supplements

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Have you heard the word probiotics before?

-These are living organisms that are proven to have many health benefits when consumed or even applied to your body.

Probiotics can be found in yogurt, dietary supplements, and many other beauty products. Therefore, you can consume them through food or even by taking supplements.

In a vast number of studies, it has been found that your overall health is linked with the number of bacteria (probiotics) in your digestive system.

Probiotics are essential because if you have a proper and healthy balance of these gut bacteria in your body, you’ll witness a wide range of health benefits.

Now, what are the benefits?

That’s why this article is here to give you all the facts about the benefits of probiotics.

Therefore, read till the end to get a crystal clear idea about it.


1.  Probiotics Can Treat And Reduce Diarrhea

Probiotics are well-known for their ability to treat or reduce the intensity of diarrhea.

When you intake a lot of antibiotics, there are chances you might face problems regarding diarrhea. This happens when you intake antibiotics; it disrupts the balance of good and bad bacteria in your gut.

In a study, it has been found that probiotics reduced the chances of diarrhea by 42%. However, the rate of effectiveness will indeed depend on the dose and type of probiotics taken.


2. Mental Conditions Can Also Be Helped And Improved

In various researches, it has been found that gut health has links with mood and mental stability.

It has also been approved that if you take complete probiotic supplements, it can improve some of your health disorders.

In a study, researchers experimented on 70 workers for 6 weeks. The workers who consumed 100 grams of probiotic yogurt or probiotic capsule each day benefited from depression, stress, anxiety, and general health.

In another case, 40 patients with depression were given probiotic supplements to see whether they show any decrease in depression or not.

To their surprise, they saw that patients who took the probiotic supplement for 8 weeks straight got their depressions significantly reduced.

Moreover, they also saw that C-reactive protein levels and insulin decreased drastically compared to those who didn’t consume probiotics supplements.


3.   The Heart Will Also Stay Healthy

Probiotics also help in keeping a healthy heart. And this is done by lowering the bad blood pressure and cholesterol.

Certain lactic acid-producing bacteria can also help in reducing cholesterol by breaking down the bile in your gut.

Bile mainly consists of cholesterol, helps you with your digestion.

Probiotics help in breaking down the bile and prevents it from reabsorbed in your gut.

In a review of 9 pieces of research, it has been found that probiotic supplements can indeed reduce your blood pressure but only reasonably.


4. Specific Allergies And Eczema Can Be Kept Under Control

Some specific probiotics can reduce the intensity of eczema (skin irritation) in children and infants.

In a study, it has been found that infants who consumed probiotic supplemented milk got improved eczema symptoms rather than those infants who fed on milk without the presence of probiotics.

Another study showed that women who consumed probiotics during their pregnancy had healthy children. Statistics show that 83% of the children had lower possibilities of developing eczema during the first two years of their birth.

Although the connection between probiotics and eczema is still relatively weak, researchers are still searching for better leads that can show the genuine relationship between these two.

Some studies even showed that probiotics could also reduce diary allergies within people. But there is still no proper evidence to substantiate the fact!


5. Helps In Boosting The Immune System


Probiotics might also help you to boost your immune system and can also put a halt to the unwanted growth of harmful bacteria in the gut.

Even, few probiotics enhance the production of antibodies naturally in your body!!

In an extensive review, it has been found that consumers who took probiotics reduced the chances of developing respiratory infections. Although, more pieces of evidence are required to justify the fact.

Another study showed that probiotic Lactobacillus crispatus reduced the risk of infection in the urinary tract of women by 50%


6. Helps In Reducing Body Weight And Belly Fat

Probiotics can indeed help you with weight loss and belly fat!!

There are several ways of doing this. For instance, there are a few probiotics that can prevent the intestine from absorbing dietary fat.

This fat then excretes through the feces and doesn’t stay in your body any longer.

The exciting fact about probiotics is that it burns calories and also stores less fat. This is due to the increase in certain hormones like GLP-1.

Probiotics can also help you to lose weight directly!! In a study, women who took Lactobacillus rhamnosus consistently for 3 months straight lost 50% more weight than those who didn’t consume probiotics.

But one thing that you need to keep in mind is that not all probiotics will help you to


7. Reduces Certain Digestive Disorders

Over a million people in the USA suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Certain probiotics from the Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus have indeed improved people from the symptoms of mild ulcerative colitis.

Interestingly, a study found that replacing with the probiotic E. coli Nissle was as effective as other drugs that help maintain the remission in people with ulcerative colitis.

Moreover, probiotics also have benefits for various bowel disorders. In the early research, researchers suggested that probiotics might have the upper hand to improve irritable bowel syndrome.


Final Verdict

Probiotics are present in a variety of foods and supplements.

If you want, you can also purchase probiotic supplements from the online market. But make sure that when you are buying, you go through the reviews of the customers.

Many online marketplaces sell fake probiotic supplements at the price of the original one. Therefore, always sure that you’re purchasing it from a trusted and reliable source.
