Why Are Probiotics Helpful With Constipation?

Probiotics are delivered effectively to your intestines, where they go to work to give you relief from constipation. Add probiotics to your diet to help reduce diarrhoea, constipation and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Constipation, diarrhea and symptoms of IBS are some of the most common gastrointestinal complaints in countries like the USA, England, Australia and New Zealand today. Probiotic supplementation helps to build up a healthy supply of good bacteria in the intestines and is a natural alternative to over-the-counter remedies. Probiotics are safe and effective at quickly treating these issues.

No Side Effects

For chronic or occasional constipation, we recommend a top quality probiotic dietary supplement which passes through the stomach acid and implants in the upper and lower intestine so you can stay regular and feel better faster. Most commercial probiotics do NOT survive this bypass, and die in the stomach or high acid (low pH) environment, fooling the person into believing they are taking a valid supplement.

What is the Role of Probiotics in Constipation?

Probiotic bacteria naturally live in your intestinal tract. They aid in digesting food and purging wastes from the body. By crowding out bad or unfriendly bacteria, probiotics produce lactic acid (which reduces the pH in the intestine), and essentially speed up the digestive process. Because the intestines are able to work more efficiently with the proper balance of good bacteria, stools are able to pass through the colon more quickly, preventing the colon from absorbing too much water from the stool, which causes constipation.
I recommend anybody with constipation or diarrhoea to take one, two or even three capsules daily.

What is the Role of Probiotics in Diarrhoea?

Diarrhoea describes bowel movements (stools) that are loose and watery. It commonly occurs when the digestive system is over run by harmful bacteria, and the intestines cannot break down and absorb the food going through them. Episodes of diarrhoea can arise (and often do) from the use of antibiotics, which can destroy the good bacteria, and when traveling to areas of the world where sanitation is poor. The probiotics we recommend on this website can help to build up a healthy supply of friendly bacteria in your digestive tract and protect you against diarrhea.
