Imbalances in our gut bacteria—either a lack of beneficial bacteria or an overgrowth of unhealthy bacteria—can interfere with our mission for optimal health.
Abdominal pain, bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, and a struggling immune system are some common outcomes of imbalanced gut bacteria.
Antibiotic therapy, illness, poor diet, stress, and environmental toxins affect the health of our gut flora. In the past, regular consumption of fermented foods helped to maintain healthy gut flora, but these foods are increasingly rare in our diet. The combination of unhealthy lifestyles and a lack of fermented foods in the diet makes probiotics an important supplement.
ProbioMed™ 50 is a high potency, shelf stable, broad-spectrum probiotics formulation containing 50 billion CFU per serving.
It consists of ten of the most highly researched probiotic strains, with each strain and specific CFU count being fully disclosed. These are robust strains that are capable of surviving the harsh journey to the intestines and are able to attach to the intestinal walls, where they can grow and function effectively to support GI health.
This novel packaging removes the need for refrigeration, making this probiotic convenient for travelers and anyone on the go.
ProbioMed™ probiotics may be useful for:
• Improving symptoms of IBS (see more info below)
• Digestive health
• Supporting bowel function & healthy elimination
• Recolonizing good gut bacteria after antibiotic therapy
• Rebalancing gut flora
• Boosting immunity
• Supporting oral health
I recommend taking a quality probiotic (like this one) daily or every other day. If you’re traveling, fighting a cold, on antibiotics, or treating a condition, you may need to increase your dose. Take with food.
How ProbioMed can help treat your IBS
IBS symptoms have been linked to certain changes in the gut bacteria. For example, people with IBS have lower amounts of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium in their guts, and higher levels of harmful Streptococcus, E. coli and Clostridium. (6, 7)
Changes in the gut flora may influence IBS symptoms which is why probiotics are being increasingly investigated as a treatment option for IBS. Aside from their potential to reshape the gut microbiome, there are several ways probiotics may improve IBS symptoms: changing intestinal motility, reducing gut sensitivity, improving intestinal barrier function, and calming gut inflammation and immune activation, to name a few.
However, not all probiotics are alike. In fact, the term “probiotic” covers many different strains and types of bacteria and yeasts. Their health effects vary depending on the type.
Probiotics that have had positive results in treating IBS in placebo-controlled trials include various Lactobacillus species like L. rhamnosus GG and L. acidophilus, various Bifidobacterium species like B. infantis and B. longum, and mixtures of strains. (14, 15, 16)
ProbioMed 50 contains many of the bacteria species that have been proven to be effective in treating IBS which is why I recommend it.
