The People’s Pharmacy radio show and podcast are supported in part by sponsorship. One of our sponsors is KayaBiotics, a German company that makes high-quality probiotics from all-organic ingredients. Germany has rigorous oversight of supplement manufacturing, and we are pleased that such products are available to our listeners.
The Benefits of Probiotics:
Most people think of probiotics as having benefits for the digestive tract. Indeed, there are many studies indicating that people can use probiotics for relief from diarrhea and other gastrointestinal problems (Minerva Gastroenterologica e Dietologica, Dec. 2015). Numerous studies indicate that probiotics, alone or in combination with prebiotics, can reduce the risk of postoperative infections after people undergo abdominal surgery (Annals of Surgery, online Aug. 28, 2019).
The usefulness of probiotics is not limited to digestive difficulties, however. Research indicates that people taking probiotics lose less time to flu-like illnesses. Other studies suggest that probiotics may help people overcome metabolic syndrome (Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, online Oct. 30, 2019). Probiotic foods such as yogurt may even lower the risk of developing lung cancer.
