The Ups and Downs of Using Pre- and Probiotics
The pre- and probiotics trend is popular with those wanting to improve their health and wellbeing. The science behind using pre- and probiotics to balance microbiomes in the gut continues to show many positive benefits including better digestion, a boost to the immune system, clear skin, weight management, improved mood and better sleep. While these are all great for your overall health, there can also be a few speed bumps to getting your digestive system on the right track.
What are Pre- and Probiotics and What Do They Do?
Probiotics are the good bacteria found in certain foods and supplements that naturally bring balance to your gut when the bad bacteria get out of control. Prebiotics act as the fuel for probiotics to flourish and help improve the microflora, which helps control our immune system to respond to inflammation. Our digestive system is more than just a food processer and it’s often considered a second brain. So when it’s on the fritz, it can cause a lot of other problems throughout the body, including obesity, tiredness, weight gain and sometimes chronic illnesses.
What are the Possible Side Effects to Using Pre- and Probiotics?
Of the many good things that stem from the use of pre- and probiotics, some people may experience some unpleasantness and discomfort, such as bloating, gas, upset stomach, diarrhea or an allergic reaction. These symptoms usually subside after a few weeks. If they happen to linger, it’s important to know your health situation and talk with your doctor before taking any supplement that may cause side effects. While pre- and probiotics are relatively safe to consume, people with weakened immunes systems, chronic illnesses or are recovering from surgery should avoid taking pre- and probiotics. Generally healthy people can take these supplements, but should start slowly to see how your body reacts and adjusts to the new changes.
