Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
In a new article from eProbiotics.com, the author discusses how recent findings demonstrate that supplementing with probiotics and probiotic supplements may provide relief from the symptoms that accompany colitis, the inflammatory bowel disease that can cause open sores to form on the intestinal walls and other afflicted areas.
In the article, it is mentioned that probiotics are the good bacteria that are found naturally in the digestive system to keep a healthy balance and can be found in food sources such as kefir, yogurt and probiotic supplements.
The article details how doctors continue to search for an exact cause of colitis; in the process they discovered that probiotics actually prevent harmful bacteria from adhering to the lining of the digestive walls and preventing intestinal inflammation.
Since the immune and digestive systems are closely related, and those with colitis appear to have compromised immune systems, the article details how scientists are now exploring the link between bacteria and colitis
Doctors have also discovered that optimal digestive health occurs when there is a ratio of 85:15 good to bad bacteria, and recommend consuming between 10 and 25 billion colony-forming units of probiotics each day.
