Achieve healthy living with Probiotics

Wednesday, May 20, 2020

Take a look at our articles

From the time that Antony Van Leeuwenhoek first discovered bacteria in 1676 up to today, scientists have learned more about these fascinating microorganisms than Antony could have ever dreamed of. For one thing, bacteria aren’t all slowly harming us, like we used to think a few hundred years back. For another, our bodies really depend on the bacteria that live inside us. So much so, in fact, that we occasionally need to regulate the balance of that bacteria in order to achieve the healthiest possible living we can; it’s a certain bacteria-dependent equilibrium.

What are probiotics?

Probiotics are tiny bacteria that maintain the ecosystem of your digestive tract, ensuring that it stays healthy and functioning properly. When probiotic levels are found within your stomach, they help fight off harmful bacteria, boost digestion, and decrease intestinal inflammation. When these probiotics are in short supply your gut gets unhappy.  

We need the correct balance of bacteria in order to maintain gut health. Gut health leads to overall body health and has been shown to lead to benefits like disease risk reduction, weight loss, better digestion, better skin, and a more effective immune system.

How do you get probiotics?

Many natural sources contain probiotics, some include:

Yogurt - The best mix of probiotics will be found in natural, non-GMO yogurt. Although some more commercially processed brands might be especially tasty, probiotics come naturally.  

Kefir - With strains of more than 60 yeasts and bacteria, this traditionally Russian/ Eastern European drink beats yogurt on its probiotic count.

Kombucha- A sweet tea most likely originating from China.

Kimchi - A potent Korean dish made of fermented veggies.

Supplements - Many also take it in supplements. It’s important to know what is needed, however, as unnecessary excess in use is unhealthy.

How do they help us?

Our guts are all about balance. We need the correct balance of bacteria in order to maintain gut health. Gut health leads to overall body health and has been shown to lead to benefits like disease risk reduction, weight loss, better digestion, better skin, and a more effective immune system.

After taking antibiotics, it is very beneficial to have probiotic supplements. As antibiotics function to destroy both good and bad bacteria, it’s wise to replenish the helpful bacteria after weakening both sides of the playing field.

Individuals with digestive issues such as Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) also greatly benefit from taking probiotics.

Probiotics also provide an overall sense of wellbeing throughout your entire person, calming the mind, allowing food to digest properly and get distributed evenly, as well as improving overall immunity. We must always remember that our bodies are more connected than we think and ensuring that one area is healthy helps to keep the rest of the body healthy as well.

Rain has combined a robust profile of benefit-heavy bacteria, chosen carefully by gut-health experts, to support your stomach in many ways. Their product Pure also includes pre-biotics to feed each probiotic, increasing their effectiveness. Each of these bacteria have been sourced from nature's finest places, plants and processes.
