8B Wednesday, May 23, 2012 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Consid0000r prot00iotics for z lth, di00,,00stion HERE'S TO Your HEALTH AURA WHITTAKER The digestive system is home to more than 500 differ- ent bacterial species. They help keep intestinal linings healthy and assist in break- ing down food. Beneficial or- ganisms are also believed to help regulate healthy im- mune response. Probiotics are micro-or- ganisms such as bacteria and yeast that are believed to im- prove health. The idea of ingesting live bacteria may seem strange at first glance. Researchers believe that some digestive disorders re- sult when the balance of friendly bacteria in the in- testines becomes disturbed, such as what happens after an infection or after taking an- tibiotics. Intestinal problems can also arise when the lining of the intestines is damaged and introducing new benefi- cial organisms in the form of probiotics may help. Although more research is needed, there's encouraging evidence that probiotics may help: --Treat diarrhea, especial- ly following treafinent with certain antibiotics. --Prevent and treat vagi- nal yeast infections and uri- nary tract infections. --Treat irritable bowel syndrome. --Reduce bladder cancer recurrence. --Speed treatment of cer- tain intestinal infections. --Prevent and treat eczema in children. --Prevent or reduce the severity of colds and flu. Side effects of probiotic use are rare, and most healthy adults can safely add foods that contain friendly bacte- ria to their diet. M/so, sauer- kraut, kefir (fermented milk drink), live-cultured yogurt (plain) and lacto-fermented foods (made without vinegar) are good foods to start with. As usual, choose organic whenever possible. If you're considering taking supplements, check with your doctor to be sure they're right for you. Generally you will pay more for a higher quality product with purer strains of friendly bacteria.
