Probiotics

I wanted to share an article with you that I found in "Men's Journal, July 2015."

"A number of recent studies suggest that probiotics-microbes taken as a supplement- can promote digestion, boost immunity, support heart health, and relieve allergy symptoms by boosting the amount of healthy bacteria in the gut.

Gregor Reid, chair of Human Microbiology and Probiotics at Lawson Health Research Institute in Canada, says certain strains may even help speed recovery from workouts, ease anxiety, and lower cholesterol.  Integrative Physician Frank Lipman recommends probiotics to most of his patients.  People's microbiomes are out of whack because of poor diet, antibiotics, artifical sweeteners that kill good bacteria, and chlorinated water.  

And though yogurt, Kimchi, sauerkraut, and other fermented foods supply some probiotics, the amount you get from a capsule is so much greater."  

I've been recommending probiotics to my patients for 30 years, and it is great that this practice finally gets more attention.  Many of our patients are already using probiotics and experience the benefits on a dialy basis.
