Although they are still being studied, probiotics may help several specific illnesses, studies show. In 2011, experts at Yale University reviewed the research. They concluded that probiotics are most effective for childhood diarrhea, treating ulcerative colitis, helping the immune system, Treating vaginitis, Treating symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, Treating Crohn’s disease etc.
It’s easier than ever to get your fix these days: Not only is the yogurt industry exploding, but an increasing number of foods fortified with probiotics are being introduced as well. The best and most natural form of food that you can take is fermented food. Yogurt with the “live active cultures” seal indicates that it has not been heated after the fermentation process and contains at least 100 million cultures per gram consequently implying that the product contains probiotics. Words like unpasteurized or lacto-fermented indicate the product contains probiotic cultures.
A new and improved idea for the intake of “friendly bacteria” is now within your cosmetic lines. Scientists are now experimenting with various cosmetics to contain probiotic so the skin can absorb the cultures and they can do magic for you. Friendly bacteria are making the leap from yogurt to skin creams, gels, and makeup, thanks to research that shows probiotics hold promise for warding off acne and eczema and may even have anti-aging properties. Moreover the bacteria can adhere to keratin and help heal dryness and problems of inflammation.
Pro biotics also come in the form of supplements to help you fight diseases. If you consider less fermented products you can attain the culture from supplements in the form of pills, tonics and liquid shots. Some of them are kept in low temperature so one usually has to refrigerate them to keep them effective. Having probiotic diet can improve immunity and fight harmful bacteria that brood within your body.
