Live native bacteria fundamentally inhabit our gastro-intestinal tract, and in return for food and shelter they help us to digest food, absorb nutrients, keep pathogenic bacteria at bay and support the immune system.
Bad bacteria will always exist in our gut – generally in harmony with the ‘good’ live native bacteria. Illness, antibiotic treatment and poor diet (e.g. rich in sugar) can all affect the balance between the good and bad bacteria.
In such cases the bad bacteria will start to ‘colonise’ the good live native bacteria causing pain, bloating, discomfort and even diarrhoea. It can be difficult to restore the good balance at such times.
Included in the Nature’s Own pre and live native range, we offer Saccharomyces Boulardii. This is a unique, natural and safe microorganism, with a wealth of research data, which has been used worldwide as a food supplement for more than half a century.
