In a world of constant travel, be it for leisure or business or social commitments. We live in times where we are constantly on the go. So much so that our eating habits and consumption pattern goes for a toss. We eat out more times than we eat in. And, such a lifestyle has led to an increase in bad to good bacteria ratio in our body. When bad bacteria out-balances the good bacteria in our body, such imbalance can lead to digestive disorders like irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease and infections.
How do you take care of yourself in such times? Being a constant traveller myself, making sure of health is of utmost importance. Believe it or not, we are prone to a lot of health issues like low immune and prone to minor illness like a cough, cold is on a rise. In such an environment I resort to Probiotics to maintain a healthy gut.
What is Probiotics? Pro means promoting, and biotic means life, in short, probiotics means promoting a healthy lifestyle. Probiotics are the good bacteria required to maintain a healthy gut. Good bacteria present in your gut can enhance the immune system, combat obesity, and provide numerous other health benefits.
Probiotics are a natural way to establish and maintain a balance of good and bad bacteria in your digestive system. It can be consumed as food or taken as a supplement, both of which help to keep your digestive health in check. It boosts your immune system and improves digestion and absorption of food nutrients.
