We would like to take this opportunity to introduce our new sponsor, KayaBiotics. You may be wondering about the probiotics stories you’ve been seeing and hearing over the past few years. In July, a comprehensive review concluded that taking probiotics together with an antibiotic can help avoid the diarrhea and other gastrointestinal complications from the antimicrobial drug (JAMA, July 19, 2018). Other studies have shown that probiotics may help ease the symptoms of seasonal allergies (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, online Feb. 22, 2017) and reduce inflammation (Nutrients, Jan. 3, 2017). These beneficial bacteria appear to be useful in treating a range of digestive difficulties, including ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel syndrome as well as acute infectious diarrhea and antibiotic-associated diarrhea (American Family Physician, Aug. 1, 2017). A review of the literature show that certain probiotics can be effective in treating constipation (European Review for Medical and Pharmacological Sciences, Oct. 2018). Not just any probiotic will do, however. They are not all created equal.
As with all dietary supplements, it can be hard to determine the quality of the probiotics you may find on the drugstore shelf. Moreover, with probiotics, one variety does not fit all needs. There are many different strains of probiotic bacteria and they have different uses.
That is why we are pleased to introduce KayaBiotics. These probiotic products are produced in Germany, where regulatory oversight of dietary supplements manufacturing is far stricter than in the US. KayaBiotics products are made only from organic certified ingredients and are designed to improve the diversity of intestinal flora. They are hypoallergenic and micro-encapsulated to protect them en route to your large intestine.
The three available formulas are created for very specific purposes, such as strengthening the immune system, fighting yeast infections and helping with weight loss.
