Probiotics are live bacteria and yeast substances that occur naturally in the body and are good – if not absolutely essential – for the digestive system and our overall health. A probiotic supplement can be taken to ensure a healthy balance at all times. Here, the medical estheticians and in-house nutrition consultant at 8 West Clinic reveal how taking a probiotic supplement can make you feel like a billion bucks!
When it comes to our health, we often think of bacteria and yeast in negative terms. But our bodies are full of good bacteria in the form of probiotics, which help to boost and maintain our gut health by helping to produce vitamins, absorb minerals, aid in the elimination of toxins and more. Best of all, the correct balance of good bacteria will keep the bad bacteria at bay and your health running smoothly.
Depending on diet, medications and other lifestyle-related issues, our natural probiotics can tend to run low at times. This is when a supplement like UltraFlora Balance by Metagenics can come in handy to give our system a healthy boost.
Both a healthy balance of natural probiotics and a probiotic supplement can yield benefits related to various digestive problems, such as indigestion, IBS and even lactose intolerance – there are also big benefits when it comes to resisting disease, increasing energy levels and elevating mood. That said, you can expect to be healthier and happier – a billion times over – by achieving the optimal balance of probiotics in your bod.
