What Are Probiotics: That Healthy Gut Feeling

The supplement market is growing rapidly and here at Face the Future we are big advocates of supplementing your healthy diet and skincare for extra benefits. While there are a certain supplements you can take to target your individual health and skin concerns, one supplement that is universally beneficial to all ages and genders is probiotics.

Probiotics are often to as 'friendly bacteria' but what do they actually do? Well, our gut manufactures a number of essential enzymes, vitamins and nutrients and transmits them around the body. In addition, around 70% of our body's defenses are located in the gut. Friendly bacteria support these essential functions and a healthy immune system.They play a very simple role that has a huge impact on your whole body. If you consume very high levels of raw and fresh plant-based food, the chances are your probiotic levels are pretty good. However, in our modern diets it's hard to achieve optimum levels naturally, which is why supplements are so helpful.The Advanced Nutrition Programme Probiotics are fantastic for boosting your friendly bacteria levels, which in turn aids digestion, supports the immune system, relieves symptoms of IBS and can even improve skin conditions such as blemishes and eczema. The supplement comes in a powder form, so can be sprinkled onto food or into drinks which is great for those who don't like swallowing tablets or for supplementing your child's diet. It has a sweet yet subtle flavour, so I find the powder best added to juice or sprinkled over cereal for breakfast.For more information on probiotics or any of our supplements, call our advisors on 0113 282 3181.Written for you by: Ellie, Face the Future
