The Surprising Benefits of Probiotics
This blog post was created in partnership with BC30™ through Maverick Mindshare to share how you can nurture your digestive health. As always, I only partner with brands I love and use. Thank you for supporting the partners that keep Tris Alexandra Nutrition + Wellness going!
Supporting your gut microbiome – the trillions of bacteria that reside in your gut – is one of the most powerful things you can do to enhance your health and wellbeing. These beneficial bacteria work in harmony to maintain your digestive health, but gut health benefits go far beyond aiding digestion.
Studies show connections between the gut and our mood, immunity, skin, brain, weight and more. Meaning our gut has the ability to influence so much of our health and how we feel. The gut is where we breakdown, make and absorb nutrients, metabolise hormones. The majority of our immune system resides in the gut, and serotonin, our happy neurotransmitter, is made in the gut.
The gut is sensitive to many of our lifestyle factors such as stress, processed foods, refined sugars, and environmental stressors, which can compromise the beneficial bacteria. To achieve a healthy gut, we need to support the beneficial bacteria, so we feel our best. And one of the key ways to support our gut health is with probiotics.
WHAT ARE PROBIOTICS?
Probiotics are live good bacteria that contribute to digestive health and overall health and wellness. To be considered a probiotic, it must be live at the time consumed, be in sufficient quantities to be efficacious and provide a health benefit. Think of probiotics as little helpers that restore digestive health in your gut.
Some probiotics are called ‘vegetative probiotics’, and they need to be refrigerated as the live bacteria are fragile and vulnerable to environmental conditions such as heat and digestion. These probiotics are commonly found in fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, kefir and yogurt, or in supplement form. But not all probiotics make it to your gut to support healthy digestion nor can they be used in your everyday foods and beverages.
Another form of probiotics is ‘spore-forming probiotics’, which have an outer spore that protects the beneficial live cultures from damage during digestion and during manufacturing and shelf life.
BC30™ is a natural spore-forming probiotic, which means its natural protective shell safeguards it, so it arrives live in your gut to promote and restore digestive health.
BC30 can be found in a range of food and beverages in Australia and worldwide, such as teas, snacks, oats, kombucha, breakfast products and more, making is easy to include probiotics into your daily healthy diet at any time of day. Look for the BC30 logo and brand name on-pack or scan the ingredient listing for the unique strain name of Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086.
