We live in harmony with millions of healthy probiotic bacteria within our bodies, particularly in our gut which help with digestion and immunity (What are probiotic bacteria?). Occasionally the balance between these friendly bacteria and harmful bacteria is upset – a good quality, multi strain probiotic supplements can help to restore this balance. Abnormal gut bacterial growth can be caused by a poor diet, recent illness, antibiotics, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and simply traveling abroad. This can lead to gut problems such as bloating, wind, colicky pains and diarrhoea and general symptoms such as fatigue and lack of motivation. There are an increasing number of chronic conditions (in and outside the gut) which are now linked to abnormal bacterial flora.
In situations where the natural balance between good and bad bacteria may be upset a healthy probiotic supplement is recommended along side healthy dietary changes.
Why buy NatureMedical probiotic supplements?
Most probiotics, sold as dietary supplements, which do not undergo the high level of testing and approval process that drugs do. Manufacturers are responsible for making sure they’re safe before they’re marketed and that any claims made on the label are true. The bacteria in probiotic freeze-dried tablets may not even be still alive. It is really important to buy probiotics from reliable sources.
Naturemedical probiotics are produced by a long established, reputable UK manufacturer with a high quality assurance track record completely compliant with EU, UK and USA standards. So what you see on the label is definitely what is inside the capsule and they are fresh, free from contamination and the use by dates are accurate.
