Good health begins with gut health

The gut microbiota is highly diverse, hosting billions of bacteria, both harmful and beneficial. Maintaining balance between the good and the bad is vital not only for digestive health, but also for overall health. At times, this balance may become disrupted, which may lead to digestive discomfort.

Millions of people experience digestive issues daily; it has been reported that almost half of the world’s population experiences at least one functional gastrointestinal disorder on a regular basis.1 Moreover, approximately 5-35% of the global population suffers from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)2, with effects on bloating, constipation, diarrhea, flatulence and abdominal pain.

Certain circumstances may also increase the permeability of the intestinal epithelium, making it less resistant and compromising its ability to keep unfavorable substances and bacteria out of the rest of the body. This process is called translocation, also known as having a “leaky gut.” The translocation of harmful substances from the gut has been associated with a range of serious conditions.

 

Children, adults, seniors—everyone benefits from improved digestive health.

At every age, a stable “gut feeling” is the foundation of a balanced life. It is the key to peak performance, even in the most challenging mental and physical tasks, and can enhance the enjoyment of all that life has to offer. It is not surprising that multiple studies have shown that the intake of probiotics can improve overall quality of life.

Over the course of a lifetime, human gut microbiota will be continually challenged and changed. By maintaining the balance between good and bad bacteria, we can support strong digestive health at any age.

How can probiotics help?

Multiple clinical trials have shown that various strains of probiotics can support improved digestive health. However, not all probiotics are the same, and even within the same species, different strains of bacteria may have different modes of action and unique health effects. Identifying a desired health effect is the first step to finding a strain that meets your needs.

The consumption of carefully selected probiotic bacteria may foster a diverse, balanced microbiota that improves digestive health.
