Posted Aug 18 2010 6:11am
Everyone has billions of live bacteria living in their intestines. Some of these bacteria are beneficial to keeping you feeling healthy. And some of these bacteria are not good, and are responsible for many symptoms that people don't realize.

Put the balance in your favor

Probiotics are becoming an important part of many individual's healthy lifestyles. Everyone has bacteria living in their intestines, and more people want to put the balance in their favor. A balanced intestinal flora can make a lot of difference to the way you feel, and how healthy and energetic you are. Symptoms of an imbalance in your intestinal flora include...

Gastro intestinal problems
Indigestion
Feeling bloated all the time
Constipation
Yeast infections
Flu like symptoms
Chronic fatigue
These are just some of the physical symptoms that can happen if your beneficial bacteria is being taken over by other bacteria and yeasts in your intestines.
Along with the physical symptoms of yeast overgrowth you can have emotional and mental symptoms as well. These include...
Depression
Foggy brain
Lack of concentration
Irritability
Feeling light headed or drunk after eating certain foods
Memory loss
Severe mood swings
PMS
Probiotics keep you intestines clean

As well as keeping your intestinal flora in perfect balance, probiotics also help to keep your intestines clean. These beneficial bacteria feed on other micro-organisms that your body doesn't need.
Keeping the walls of your intestines clean is important so you can absorb more of the nutrients from the food that you eat. Your bowels also perform their functions a lot easier when they are cleaner.

As you can see probiotics have many benefits for your health yet many people still don't know what they are or what they do. Why not put the balance in your favor, and see if you start to feel better.
