Probiotic Care - for Problems with Digestion

Most of us, at some point or another, have suffered from some kind of digestive problem. These ailments are pretty common, and most of us just assume it’s a short-term problem that your body will fix itself.

But sometimes it can be a sign that your gut isn’t receiving enough probiotics – helpful microbes that work together to ensure your digestive tract is working properly and the food you consume is quickly and efficiently processed.

Since the time we’re born, we have billions of different strains of bacteria living inside our digestive track. Some are good and some are bad. But we need both kinds; they actually work together to help keep us healthy and our digestive systems running smoothly.

When your bacteria levels get low, or improperly balanced, we experience digestive problems. Below is a quick overview of the possible ailments and what your body is trying to tell you.

  • Diarrhea
    Watery stool is often the first indicator something could be wrong. Diarrhea is brought on by intestinal irritation or increased muscular action in the gut. This ailment is also accompanied by abdominal pain, rectal soreness and increased thirst.
  • Gas
    Gas is brought on by the fermentation of undigested carbohydrates in the digestive tract. It can range from a mild discomfort to severe abdominal pain. While some gas is normal and to be expected, severe gas can be unpleasant, uncomfortable and embarrassing.
  • Constipation
    Constipation is one of the most common ailments reported by Americans. While we all go to the bathroom at different frequencies, you should be on the lookout for dry, hard stool that’s hard to pass. Being constipated also affects the way you feel, often times leaving you feeling lethargic.
  • Bloating
    If your abdomen is swollen or feels tight, you could be suffering from bloating. It could also be a sign that your good and bad bacteria counts are out of balance, preventing your digestive tract from operating as normal.

While we all have billions and billions of bacteria in our digestive systems, the actual amount fluctuates at any given time. This is because huge numbers can be killed off by medications, contaminated drinking water, processed foods, and other impurities that enter our bodies. So we need to be sure we are replacing those lost microbes so we can maintain a healthy level that our bodies need to properly function.
