During the last ten years, "probiotics" have become an increasingly popular concept in scientific circles. More and more researchers are starting to realize that these "healthy bugs" play a significant role in our health today.
Several studies have shown that probiotics, or microorganisms that do not cause diseases, are ingested through food or supplements. They can be beneficial to immune functioning and absorption of nutrients and diarrhoea treatment, both in children and adults.
Did you know? An average healthy person has between 100-300 trillion probiotic bacteria and yeast living within them, compared to only 10 trillion cells in the body.
So, it is imperative to know more about this bacteria and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about probiotics in general and our probiotic supplement in this article. (1,2,3)
Probiotics: What are they?
A probiotic is a living microorganism used in non-pharmacological ways to promote gut health. Probiotics can be prescribed to treat a wide range of disorders. Probiotic strains that are beneficial for specific outcome diseases have proven to be most helpful in determining which probiotics to take. "Probiotics" are friendly bacteria that are beneficial for the body. Taking probiotics every day is critical for maintaining overall health and attacking harmful bacteria. Foods fermented, such as yoghurt or kimchi, contain probiotics. Probiotics in serum are generally measured using CFU (colony-forming units).
Why should you take a probiotic supplement every day?
To maximize the benefits of probiotics, it is recommended to combine probiotic supplements with food sources. It is also recommended to supplement probiotics because the nutrients in natural sources may not be as beneficial as those in supplements due to their inherent sensitivity. Hence, a supplement with multiple strains could be helpful as each strain plays a different role in your body.
What are the science-backed benefits of probiotics?
Probiotic bacteria have a lot of scientific evidence to support their health benefits. Several different species of probiotics have been found to benefit not only digestion, but also skin, respiratory function, cognitive function, mood, and even immunity.
Our bodies benefit from probiotics from the moment we're born until we're old. Breast milk is one of the most important sources of nutrients for the bacteria in our gut. Our gut bacteria are constantly changing as we develop. Lifestyle, diet, and other factors we encounter in everyday life affect them - age, gender, stress, pollution, the environment, etc.
Many studies have shown that probiotics can help those who suffer from food allergies, behavioral disorders, mood changes, autoimmune disease, arthritis, chronic fatigue, skin disorders, and even cancer. It's for this reason that a probiotic-rich diet is so beneficial.

By providing these nutrients in a steady supply, we are able to create an intestinal environment conducive to the growth of beneficial bacteria. The nutrients in these foods are usually high in fiber, such as berries, whole grains and legumes. These foods are rich in prebiotics, which are beneficial to the body.
