Probiotics use in IBS

July 28, 2014

Did you know that Probiotics contain different amounts of strains of “species” when manufactured.  In a recent article, Joe quotes this “Probiotic bacteria have been found to stimulate the body’s immune system. They may also aid in several stomach illnesses such as inflammatory bowel diseases, antibiotic-related diarrhea, Clostridium difficile toxin-induced colitis, infectious diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, and allergies. Probiotics have been found to enhance the digestion and absorption of proteins, fats, calcium, and phosphorus. They may also help overcome lactose intolerance and restore healthful bacteria after a course of antibiotic therapy has altered the normal gastrointestinal flora.”  The authors concluded that multi-species probiotics may be an effective way to reduce IBS symptoms and change gut bacteria levels. More research is needed to confirm these findings.
