The best natural probiotic for bowel health containing 10 powerful strains
MicroBiotic Plus is a probiotic supplement with specific strains that help to resolve constipation and prevent travellers' diarrhoea.
It sounds contradictory that probiotics that can resolve constipation could also prevent upset tummy and diarrhoea when travelling. But, in fact, both are symptoms of dysbiosis, where the gut has a ratio of too many 'bad' bacteria to too few 'good'.
MicroBiotic Plus is a multi-strain probiotic supplement for digestive issues with specific strains that help constipation
Studies at Kings College, University of London, show that specific strains of probiotics:
◊ Reduce transit times through the gut
◊ Increase the number and frequency of bowel movements, and
◊ Soften stools
MicroBiotic Plus contains multiple probiotic good bacteria strains that expressly target constipation. Strains that are shown in clinical trials to help in constipation include:
These are ALL in MicroBiotic Plus - which gives you 12 billion live good bacteria per capsule.
Why do we get constipated?
When the bacteria in your gut become unbalanced – with more harmful bacteria than good ones – it can lead to digestive issues including constipation, stomach cramps, bloating and IBS.
How MicroBiotic Plus can help
By helping to re-balance the ratio of good to harmful bacteria in your gut microbiome, MicroBiotic Plus can improve overall digestive health and relieve constipation.
Take at least one capsule of MicroBiotic Plus every day to re-introduce good bacteria to your microbiome.
What else can you do to relieve constipation?
♦ DRINK MORE WATER - There is some evidence that sparkling water works even better than plain water.
♦ EAT MORE SOLUBLE FIBRE FOODS - Increasing your intake of foods high in (especially) SOLUBLE fibre foods like beans, peas, lentils and other legumes, oats, high-fibre fruits like oranges, grapefruit, mangoes, blackberries, apples, pears, figs, nectarines, prunes, strawberries
Recent research indicates that INsoluble fibre foods like bran, nuts and seeds may, however, actually make the problem worse, especially in cases of IBS. So don't overdo these.
♦ BE MORE ACTIVE / DO EXERCISE - Increased activity has been shown to reduce the symptoms of constipation.
♦ DRINK REGULAR COFFEE - Caffeinated coffee stimulates the gut to aid digestion. That's one of the reasons why it's common to drink coffee at the end of a big meal. Research at the University of Iowa shows that coffee can be 60% more effective than just drinking water.
♦ EAT PREBIOTIC FOODS - These are what the PRObiotics (good bacteria) themselves feed on, including: bananas and apples, garlic, onions and leeks, chicory, burdock and other roots, Jerusalem artichokes, Asparagus, Dandelion leaves (great in a salad)
FOR DIARRHOEA AND TRAVELLERS' TUMMY UPSETS
If you're travelling abroad to places with very different types of food and cooking and food storage methods, it is recommended to take a probiotic supplement before and during the visit.
Diarrhoea can be caused by a bowel infection eg. gastroenteritis, which in turn can be caused by
a virus, such as norovirus
bacteria, such as E. coli picked up from contaminated food, or
a parasite, often spread in contaminated water and caught in areas with poor hygiene.
This is often known as travellers' diarrhoea.
Diarrhoea causes dysbiosis - an imbalance in the gut microflora - with too few beneficial bacteria and an overgrowth of harmful micro-organisms. Dysbiosis then increases gut permeability and inflammation of the intestine.
Supplementing with probiotics encourages the ‘good’ live bacteria to colonise in the gut and crowd out the pathogens, thereby helping to reduce the duration and severity of, or prevent, diarrhoea.
Research, including a 2018 meta-analysis in Epidemiology and Health, shows a "statistically significant efficacy in the prevention of travellers' diarrhoea". The most effective strains to help prevent stomach upsets include a mixture of different Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium good bacteria.
Researchers have also concluded that probiotic supplements are a useful addition to rehydration therapy in managing acute infectious diarrhoea. They have the greatest effect if given as soon as possible after the onset of diarrhoea.
MicroBiotic Plus contains multiple probiotic good bacteria strains that expressly target travellers' sickness issues.
They include Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. plantarum, L. casei, L. rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium lactis and B. bifidum.
The capsules do not need refrigeration, so are easy to take with you on your travels.
