Probiotics Boost Digestive Health And More
Probiotics are healthy bacteria that compete with potential harmful bacteria. Probiotics set up shop in the body, taking up valuable bacteria real estate, and that keeps bad bacteria away. We eat lots of bacteria everyday and food manufacturers add probiotics to some foods to help boost their nutritional value.
A recent medical article, Role of Probiotics in Health and Disease, reviewed the science behind probiotics and research studies showing where probiotics have been found to be helpful. This article concluded that probiotics may be helpful for treating diarrhea, some antibiotic-related side effects, eczema, irritable bowel disease, cystic fibrosis, dental health, and more. Probiotics can also help prevent urinary infections and may decrease your risk for developing colon cancer. Probiotics may cause mild digestive symptoms, like bloating and gas and they may need to be restricted in people with health problems that compromise the immune system. Always talk to your doctor before adding any supplement to your diet.Probiotics can serve a similar benefit for dogs and have been recommended to improve digestive health and boost the immune system. Wheatis and Toby just started using probiotics from BioNatural Pets. Their 5-in-1 formula contains a group of probiotics to help improve skin, digestive, and immune health. It comes in a powder that you can add once daily to your dog’s water or food. I opted to add to their breakfasts and they think they’re getting an extra flavorful gravy each morning in their food. It must taste good because Toby, my notorious slow eater, now gobbles down his breakfast faster than Wheatie.
