Probiotics are believed to exert their beneficial effects through their ability to adhere to mucosal surfaces in the digestive tract as well as their antimicrobial activity against pathogenic bacteria. There is substantial evidence to support probiotic use in the treatment of acute diarrhoeal diseases and the prevention of antibiotic-associated diarrhoea.1
Help restore good gut flora after antibiotic use
Diarrhoea is a common side effect of taking antibiotics. It occurs when the balance between beneficial and pathogenic bacteria in the digestive tract tips towards the latter. This encourages the overgrowth of opportunistic or pathogenic strains.2
Several studies suggest that supplementing with probiotics when taking antibiotics, especially L. rhamnosus and L. casei, can reduce the risk of antibiotic-associated diarrhoea by 42%.3-7 Probiotics can also help relieve diarrhoea not associated with antibiotics.
Maintain gastrointestinal system health
Bloating can occur for many reasons, but it is often due to excessive fermentation in the digestive tract. In most cases, this is caused by an imbalanced gut microbiome as a result of medication use, stress, travel, or poor diet. Some bacteria produce lots of gas as part of their fermentation process, while others produce little to none. Several clinical studies have shown that certain probiotic strains, especially B. lactis and L. acidophilus, can help reduce gas production that causes bloating.11-14
Support healthy immune system function
Several studies that show that probiotics offer protection against microbial infections; and that taking probiotics for a 12-week period can help reduce the risk of getting the common cold in healthy individuals. Research also shows that probiotics can reduce the duration and severity of common cold symptoms.15-17
They can also reduce the frequency of acute URTIs by 47% and the duration by 2 days. Studies on Bifidobacterium animalis ssp lactis Bl-04 have shown this strain specifically can reduce the risk of URTI’s by 27% over a 5-month winter season in healthy active adults.18,19 Probiotics can help improve the symptoms of infectious diarrhoea. They enhance the immune response and produce substances that directly inactivate the viral particles.8 Studies show that B. lactis can significantly reduce diarrhoea as a result of viral gastroenteritis9 and that L. plantarum Lp-115 can inhibit adhesion of pathogenic microbes to the intestinal wall and reduces inflammation in the intestines.10
Changes in the gut microbiota as a result of starting with probiotics can result in bacteria producing more gas than usual, which can lead to bloating. However, these side effects usually subside within a few days or weeks of taking the probiotics. If the symptoms persist, seek the advice of a healthcare professional, who can explore the possible causes.
