Probiotics…are they right for you?

Many people with digestive issues use probiotics for gut health.  Probiotics are generally safe to use and effective for some but they are not always effective for others.  Research is very skewed in this area because there really isn’t much quality research on this topic.  Using probiotics is kind of a buyer-beware situation because they have various effects from person to person.  One legitimate study showed that those kids who drank a probiotic milk had fewer colds and flu like infections compared to the control group however there was no major effect on gastrointestinal infections or diarrhea. The quick bottom line is that, if you try them and they work for you, keep using them as they are safe.  However, if you have never tried probiotics and have the money to spend, it would be worth a shot….as they are safe to use and may work wonders for you!!
