Bacteria – the good, the bad and the ugly

‘Good’ bacteria or microbiotics are essential for good health and vitality, no matter what your age. Poor diet, stressful situations, low quality food, travel tummy and antibiotics can all affect our levels of ‘good’ bacteria. ‘Bad’ or ‘unfavourable’ bacteria on the other hand, can cause intestinal imbalances that can lead to the risk of infection and illness.

The digestive system is one of the most important systems in the body; it controls about 60 per cent of the immune system. This is why it is so important to address symptoms such as, indigestion, bloating, gas, wind, undigested food in stool, diarrhoea, and constipation. Over time if left untreated they can lead to a weakened digestive system and what is called ‘leaky’ gut, which results in digestive problems, allergies and auto immune disorders.

Udo’s Choice® Super 8 is an excellent product with therapeutic strengths of 8 different bacterial strains, each specifically formulated for their powerful value in maintaining the composition of a healthy digestive system as well as overall health.
