Stomach health has become an important element of wellness. Links between the stomach and our overall health have been demonstrated by research and one of the easiest methods to improve stomach health is through probiotics, such as live culture drinks (some types of yoghurt, kombucha and so on).
These drinks and other supplements contain friendly bacteria that can help a person’s digestive system and immune system operate better. They boost the good bacteria in our stomach by fighting off bad gut bacteria.
They help to eliminate harmful bacteria that can potentially lead to chronic disease and illness. Research has shown that they can help improve immunity, digestion and gastrointestinal diseases. Some researchers believe that they can also reduce the risk of chronic diseases (such as heart disease) as well as being helpful in treating diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome and other stomach disorders. They can also influence a person’s weight and mental well-being.
