What Are Probiotics?

Turbo boost your health

RATE:  
 

Probiotics come in many different forms but fundamentally they are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, in particular our digestive system. When we think of the word 'bacteria' it's usually associated with something dirty that causes diseases, but the truth is that bacteria comes in both good and bad forms and are influential to our lives and all life on the planet than we can ever realise.

The two most important benefits of taking a probiotic includes boosting the immune system and improving digestive function, which includes gut health. Regular use of a probiotic can also assist in treating IBS, constipation, diarrhoea, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and many other digestive issues.

Six in ten UK households regularly buy probiotic drinks and supplements, which claim to be bursting with health-boosting ‘friendly bacteria’. Recent studies have shown that in a number of them, the ‘friendly bacteria' said to aid digestion barely even made it to the ‘target’ area, the small intestine.

To be effective, probiotics are considered to have 3 key features; contain a high live bacteria count, they need to survive passing through the acidic stomach environment and finally they need to flourish in the small intestine. If all of these features are achieved then the probiotic will get to work and do it what it does best.


Studies show that most well-known brands of probiotic drinks and yoghurt contained enough bacteria but failed on the next two stages, while others fell short on the number of bacteria surviving the stomach. A few passed all three challenges. Bacteria survived the stomach and flourished in the small intestine, however it contained fewer live bacteria than stated.

The big question, do we need to take one? Well some people take them as a form of health insurance and some take them for chronic disorders such as IBS and are often not particularly satisfied with conventional medicine. Taking probiotic supplements for preventative reasons are a lot safer than taking drugs like statins and they're a popular choice as long as they meet all of the requirements necessary to reach the lower intestine and work effectively.

A great alternative is fermented foods. Fermented foods have been part of the human diet for centuries and they give us a far greater variety and complexity of beneficial bacteria than most probiotic supplements. While no-one can deny the benefits of probiotic supplementation, in the long term it is easier to trust the thousands of years of fermented foods in the human diet more than most laboratory formulations. Some well-known home-made fermented food options include probiotic yoghurt, kombucha, sauerkraut, kefir, kimchi and pickles.

If you don't have time to make your own and need a reliable probiotic supplement then you need not look any further than LA Muscle's groundbreaking new product; Probiotic.


What makes it different to the others you might ask? Good question! We saw the research, we saw what else was offer on the market and we knew we could do better! Digestive issues are extremely common and everyone on the planet will experience at least one of them at some point in their day-to-day lives. That is a fact. Nowadays our diets are so varied that it's just inevitable, so it's better to be prepared and know exactly how to reduce it's impact when it happens.

With hundreds of probiotic formulas on the market, none are like the LA Muscle Probiotic. This amazing supplement contains 13 high grade probiotics in a 10 billion CFU per gram formula. What this means is an ideal ratio of “good bacteria” to maintain digestive and immune health. Also, with cheaper formulas, you must store them in a fridge for best results however as LA Muscle's Probiotic is superior it can be stored at room temperature without losing its potency.

If you don't have any immediate need for a probiotic it can be considered as an optional supplement but similarly to a multivitamin, there are millions of people worldwide who choose to invest in a probiotic as a daily supplement in order to prevent any nasty surprises from affecting their day-to-day lives which is a good option to buy one and one of the reasons why at LA Muscle we wanted to create the perfect probiotic to enrich the lives of our customers and make sure you maintain optimum health all year round!
