What are Probiotics?
You have bacteria living in your intestines. Some of them could make you sick; however there are also bacteria that are actually beneficial. These "friendly" bacteria or probiotics help keep bad bacteria and yeast from growing in your intestinal tract causing intestinal dysbiosis. Intestinal dysbiosis is a bacterial imbalance that results in overgrowth of bad bacteria and yeast. Normally you have an abundance of friendly bacteria; however antibiotic treatment, stress and poor dietary choices may all cause intestinal dysbiosis.
Why Take Prebiotics?
When the bad bacteria and yeast become overgrown in your intestinal tract, you have a condition called dysbiosis. Dysbiosis has been linked with disorders like vaginal yeast infections, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Chron's disease, Colitis, Antibiotic Associated Diarrhea (AAD), C. Difficile infection, E. coli infection, traveler's diarrhea, and rheumatoid arthritis. Common causes of dysbiosis are stress, age, poor dietary habits and especially when on antibiotic treatment. The antibiotics that you take for killing an infection will also kill the healthy bacteria in your digestive tract.
Prebiotics and probiotics can restore the balance of bacteria in your digestive tract. It is important to take documented strains of probiotics. Documented strains have been studied and are proven to have a benefit. Prebiotics are non-digestible foods (e.g. FOS, Fructo-Oligosaccharides) that help good bacteria grow and flourish. It is the "food" for probiotics and keeps them healthy.
Make sure the probiotic supplement you are taking is Enteric Coated. Enteric Coated capsules have a protective film that will only dissolve in your intestinal pH. It therefore protects the bacteria from being destroyed by your stomach aid and the probiotics are delivered to your intestines undiminished.
Now, I know what you are thinking, "I already eat yogurt with probiotics". While it is true yogurt contains probiotics, yogurt only has two of the over 1,000 different strains of probiotics. Also the probiotics found in yogurt are not protected against your stomach acid. Between 40-50% of the bacteria will be destroyed by your stomach acid and not reach your intestine where it is needed. That is why taking a multi strain probiotic supplement that contains a prebiotic and is enteric coated will help you get better coverage of your intestinal tract.
