OptiBac Prebiotics and Probiotics
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes diseases. But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy.
Prebiotics are the food that the good bacteria feed on.
Probiotics are the good type of bacteria that help crowd out the harmful bacteria in order to keep you healthy. This is important because more than 70 percent of your immune defenses can be found in your digestive tract.
In order for us to maintain a healthy digestive system we need to ensure that we have lots of “good” bacteria. These friendly bacteria have a number of important roles:
- Improving your digestion;
- Producing vitamins;
- Relieving symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS);
- Detoxifying chemicals;
- Producing nutrients to repair the gut lining;
- Increasing resistance to infections and regulating the immune function;
- Preventing the overgrowth of bad bacteria.
OptiBac Probiotics specialise entirely in probiotics, and in particular we use specific probiotic strains to target specific health conditions. Recognising that different types of probiotics can have different beneficial effects on the body, we aim to offer each of our customers a specific probiotic formula in order to support your individual health needs.
