Probiotics, the beneficial live micro-organisms present as a part of your gut flora are far more helpful than just in the process of digestion.  Though proper digestion and stomach health are the primary benefits offered by good bacteria, surprisingly they are not the sole reasons for introducing probiotics into the system. On the contrary, human beings are greatly profited by their presence when it comes to oral health, skin conditions, metabolic activities and most importantly immunity. Here are some of those noticeable benefits brought about by the presence of helpful micro-organisms. Take a look. Reducing Cholesterol Researchers state that the overall cholesterol level is reduced in the presence of probiotics. Probiotics are known to break down the bile salts formed by cholesterol thus inhibiting their re- absorption by the gut walls. Good Oral Health For healthy teeth and gums, the probiotics prove astonishingly helpful. As bad oral health can lead to severe conditions like diabetes, heart disease and also low birth weight, omitting the cause can ensure a better life. Certain probiotics like the Lactobacillus reuteri kills the tooth decay bacteria and also subdues the effects of gingivitis. By including the probiotics as a part of your daily diet you can easily omit the risks of tooth loss or perpetually bleeding gums. Effect on Tonsillitis Certain probiotic elements like BLIS and K12 are known to have a positive impact on people suffering from tonsillitis and strep throat. A measured dose of these bacteria can have a considerable effect on the throat condition thus reducing the recurring episodes of throat disease almost by 90 percent. Reducing Diarrhea Episodes Whether due to unhealthy food intake or as a side effect of antibiotics, diarrhea is a horrible experience. However, if you consume probiotics along with the antibiotics served to you, these diarrhea systems have all probability of vanishing within a very short time period. Female Urinary Tract Condition One of the primary focuses of the probiotics is used to maintain a healthy urinary tract in females. Females are mostly affected by the presence of spermicides, antibiotics, birth control pills etc due to which the balance between good and bad bacteria is completely disturbed. Introducing probiotics in the form of supplements like Syntol and Floracor-GI or as a part of daily diet can prove quiet effective but only after consulting a doctor. Eczema Mothers with skin condition such as eczema run a high risk of passing on the disease to their next generation. However, if the pregnant moms are prescribed to include a regular intake of probiotics either as diet or supplements, chances of the progeny inheriting this disease are slim. Minimizing the Signs of Colics The condition when babies cry continuously and is there no apparent way to confirm them is quite a devastating sight for parents. This symptom in babies can be reduced if the mother takes in probiotics as a regular part of the diet during the breast feeding period as they cannot be prescribed to infants. Even if certain reports present otherwise, probiotics though not a miraculous cure for diseases definitely are not harmful. Eating certain berries, fruit or fermented stuff cannot exactly bring about some drastic change in your health but it definitely strengthens your body’s immune system gradually.
