The benefits of probiotics beyond gut health

Gut health has become an important point of focus for many researchers and healthcare professionals. And with the summer season gathering steam, it’s something that’s been on our minds as well. It’s only natural that we want to be able to partake in and fully enjoy all the outdoor barbecues, vacation-mode meals, and festive Fourth of July celebrations. All that, compounded with the benefits that a healthy gut offers for everything from brain health to stronger immunity, brings us to the hot topic of the hour: probiotics. 

What good do probiotics do? 

Your gut is already full of tiny little live microorganisms that are essential for overall intestinal flora as well as its overall healthy function and balance. They’re the “good” type of bacteria that help keep your digestive system running like clockwork.  Probiotics, then, deliver additional live strains of this beneficial bacteria into your gut. 

Here’s how probiotics, especially the stomach acid-resistant ones, can benefit your digestive health in a variety of ways: They help support digestion, nutrient absorption, stool regularity, and even your immune system health.* Some strains can also help target specific concerns that women might have–such as urinary tract and vaginal health–and can help reduce uncomfortable symptoms related to occasional bloating.* 

We know that certain yogurts, fermented foods like sauerkraut, and kombucha are good for our gut health as they’re packed with these essential probiotics, but if you want to consistently support your gut, supplements may be the way to go.

Here’s a spotlight on three probiotics from Nutra Biogenesis. We love that their line offers a selection of supplements that are vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO.
