There are a few myths that get circulated around probiotics that we can clear up in one post. Many people think probiotics are just for adults. They think that they should only take them on an upset stomach. Instead probiotics are good for keeping gut bacteria in check and the effects will wear off when they are not taken. It’s also thought that these are only good for gut health but there is evidence to support boosted mental health as well.
- Healthy eating works well for healthy gut bacteria but so do probiotics
- Probiotics are not all the same, and you may not be aware of the effect they are having on you.
- They work even if you don’t know it, and you shouldn’t just take them when your stomach is upset.
“While a healthy, fibre-rich diet and exercise are the best place to start, probiotics can also be a useful tool in helping to maintain a balanced gut flora”
