The Benefits of Probiotics

Here at Solutions Rx, our team has been providing high-quality, affordable vitamins and supplements for over six years and counting–and probiotics is one of our top-sellers.

Why? Well, the benefits of probiotics are seemingly endless… which is why we’ve decided to dedicate today’s blog to it. Let us know which benefit ends up surprising you the most!

Firstly, What Are Probiotics?

Probiotics are defined as “live microorganisms that are intended to have health benefits when consumed or applied to the body”. These microorganisms commonly belong to groups of bacteria called lactobacillusbifidobacterium, and others all of which play a different role within the body. 

While calling them “bacteria” may ring alarm bells, don’t worry: probiotics are inherently helpful, which is why many people choose to supplement them in order to get their full range of benefits. 

What Is the Role of Probiotics in the Body?

As “good bacteria”, probiotics protect the balance of your microbiome, which is the delicate ecosystem within your body that works to keep all areas of your body firing on all cylinders.

Specifically, probiotics:

  • Helps your body digest food and supports a healthy immune system.
  • Protect your body from bad bacteria and viruses
  • Regulate the functionality of your skin, lungs, mouth, gut, and intimate regions
  • And mitigate the symptoms of common concerns such as lactose intolerance, eczema, gum disease, and yeast infections

While probiotics can be found in food and drinks like yogurt, kefir, kombucha, and sauerkraut, most adults will need to supplement their probiotic intake to fully benefit from them.

The Difference Between Probiotics and Prebiotics

While probiotics and prebiotics may sound similar, they actually play two different roles: probiotics are live microorganisms that improve the “good” bacteria within the body, while prebiotics are high-fiber foods and supplements that act as the food for these good bacteria.

Both are crucial when looking to experience the full range of probiotic benefits.

The Gut-Mind Connection

On top of the physical benefits of consistently taking probiotics, probiotics may also boost what’s been nicknamed “the gut-mind connection”.

Harvard Health Publishing notes that the neurochemicals that probiotics create within the gut can be helpful in mood regulation, with gut bacteria producing, on average, 90% of the body’s supply of serotonin. For those who may grapple with mood concerns or chronic difficulty sleeping, bolstering this connection between the gut and the brain can play a major beneficial role.

Especially during winter months, where low exposure to sunlight often triggers seasonal depression due to the lower levels of natural serotonin that the body is exposed to, incorporating probiotic supplements may help regulate mood and stabilize sleeping patterns.
