Have a Weird Gut Feeling? Take a Probiotic!
Updated: Jul 19
Do you often have built up gas, indigestion, and lower abdominal pain? Deal with allergies? Find yourself getting sick more often than usual for you? Believe it or not, all of these issues can be caused by your gut, not just the obvious ones. Gut health is an essential part of your overall health — so when that’s off-balance, it can affect a whole list of other body functions.
If you are dealing with any of the above conditions or if you’re on an antibiotic (or both!), you should consider adding a probiotic to your supplement regimen! A probiotic is made up of live microorganisms that are either the same as or very similar to those found naturally in the human gut and can be beneficial to your health. These microorganisms are also referred to as “good bacteria” or “helpful bacteria” because they may potentially help with a variety of health concerns.
Over the years, researchers have been studying probiotics to determine whether they might help address concerns relating to digestive support, oral health, and more. Probiotics are naturally found in many fermented foods, including yogurt, miso, pickles, and kombucha. But for many people, the amount of probiotics in food isn’t enough to restore a healthy balance. That’s where a supplement can come into play.
At BioActive Nutrients, keeping your family safe and healthy is always a top priority; offering a high-quality probiotic is an important part of meeting that goal! Our Cranberry Probiotic with Prebiotics is formulated with 12 billion CFUs at the time of manufacture from 7 probiotic strains. Every batch of our product is GMP-certified and comes with a certificate of analysis verifying exactly what’s on the label.
Some things to note before taking a probiotic: always consult with your doctor to be sure you find what is right for you and your health needs. As probiotics are sold as a dietary supplement, they often do not require FDA approval. Probiotics can be beneficial for people who are healthy and tend to have minor side effects. However, those with underlying health problems, such as a weakened immune system, may experience mild to severe side effects.
