Probiotic Food Supplement 

Food Supplement Probiotics in Pharmacy

Probiotics (literally pro bio means for life) are bacteria, viruses or yeast that have beneficial effects on our health.

According to the WHO and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the official definition of probiotics is: "live micro-organisms that, when ingested in sufficient quantities, have positive effects on health, beyond the traditional nutritional effects .

These are actually essentially lactic ferments, microorganisms and bacterial type (and not yeasts) present in our digestive tract from top to bottom, at varying concentrations (very little in the stomach, a lot in the fat intestine).

The benefits of probiotics on our health

Regular intake of probiotics is necessary for the re-seeding of the intestinal flora to be optimal and effective.

Reduction of diarrhea with probiotics

In addition to rehydration, some probiotics reduce the risk and duration of the episode of infectious diarrhea, including lactic acid bacteria and yeast Saccharomyces Boulardii.

Relief of irritable bowel symptoms and IBD

For patients with irritable bowel syndrome or IBD (inflammatory bowel disease), taking probiotics can:

  • improve the condition of patients,
  • decrease the frequency and intensity of abdominal pain, flatulence and bloating,
  • promote intestinal transit.

Improve the functioning of the digestive system

In case of constipation, some lactic acid bacteria can accelerate intestinal transit (Bifidobacterium lactis).

Be careful, however, during antibiotic treatment, to space the catches by at least 2 hours . In addition, treatment should be continued at least 15 days after the end of the infectious episode. Evaluate the relevance of continuing treatment with a health professional.
