Probiotics are probably the most important supplement for everyone. If you’ve ever taken antibiotics you should take probiotics regularly to improve your gut health, and as a vital way to stay healthy.

Of all the supplements people take, probiotics are probably the most essential to everyone. Gut health and bacteria are easily destroyed and the use of antibiotics not only when taken orally for an infection but also in our food supply, meat, milk, and water are causing many health issues.

Taking a probiotic is a basic essential for everyone, but if you have taken a course of antibiotics you should supplement with a probiotic.

Probiotics are live microorganisms that may be able to help prevent and treat some illnesses. Promoting a healthy digestive tract and a healthy immune system are their most widely studied benefits at this time. These are also commonly known as friendly, good, or healthy bacteria.

The root of the word probiotic comes from the Greek word pro, meaning "promoting," and biotic, meaning "life." The discovery of probiotics came about in the early 20th century, when Elie Metchnikoff, known as the "father of probiotics," had observed that rural dwellers in Bulgaria lived to very old ages despite extreme poverty and harsh climate. He theorized that health could be enhanced and senility delayed by manipulating the intestinal microbiome with host-friendly bacteria found in sour milk. Since then, research has continued to support his findings along with suggesting even more benefits. 

Each of us has more than 1,000 different types of bacteria that live in our digestive tracts, helping us to break down food and absorb nutrients. But when we take antibiotics -- medicine that is designed to kill destructive, illness-causing bacteria -- the drugs can also kill the healthy intestinal flora that helps us digest. About 30 percent of the patients who take antibiotics report suffering from diarrhea or some other form of gastrointestinal distress, according to the recent JAMA study on probiotics and antibiotic-associated diarrhea. As a result, doctors commonly prescribe taking probiotics to "repopulate" the digestive tract with healthful bacteria. The study found that it was a viable solution for many.

But probiotics can also help with other types of digestive issues. Research has shown that probiotics can be helpful for people with irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS, a hard-to-treat condition that can have a range of intestinal symptoms, such as abdominal pain, cramps, bloating, diarrhea and constipation. 

There is also a very strong link between gut health and brain chemistry as seratonin is manufactured in the gut. Seratonin is the happy hormone that keeps us feeling well, happy and when out of balance or low can cause depression. Keeping your body and gut bacteria in good order affects not only your digestion but also your wellbeing so getting the good guys in there is essential to stay happy and vibrant!

Even for those without an urgent problem, probiotics can help with overall digestive management. Good bacteria help "crowd out" bad bacteria. That's because the intestine is lined with adherence sites where bacteria latches on. If the sites are populated with good-for-you microbes, there's no place for a harmful bacterium to latch on.

Surprisingly, one of the main functions of healthful bacteria is to stimulate immune response. By eating probiotic-rich foods and maintaining good intestinal flora, a person can also help to maintain a healthy immune system. In one study of students, those who were given a fermented dairy drink (instead of milk) displayed increased production from lymphocytes, a marker of immune response.

Good health begins in the gut so if you’re feeling run down or been sick you need to get the good guys back on board. Go Probiotics! Take according to the label.
