February 12, 2013 | By Anita Jackson

Do you love spicy foods, cheese or desserts that contain milk, but end up feeling sick after you've eaten them? Is it difficult for you to stay away from these foods? Certain foods often cause uncomfortable digestive problems.

If you've been dealing with unpleasant reactions to your favorite foods, it's important to realize that probiotic lactobacillus could be the natural solution to your worries.* Lactobacillus bacteria naturally feed on the acids causing these problems in the digestive systems.*

Learning More About Lactobacillus Probiotics

For most people, bacteria are the tiny microorganisms that they seek to destroy with soaps and powerful home cleaners. Nutritionists and doctors understand that like most things in life, there are both harmful and helpful bacteria. Beneficial bacteria are known as probiotics. It's essential that your body have a constant supply of probiotics, specifically lactobacillus probiotics, to properly digest food and support your natural defenses.*

Without probiotic lactobacillus*, your body can become overrun by pathogens, toxins or other harmful bacteria that can lead to the following occasional digestive problems:

  • Heartburn
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Gas and Bloating
  • Nausea
  • Lactose Intolerance

What Can Probiotic Lactobacillus Do For You?

It might sound a little strange to be ingesting millions of bacteria on a daily basis, so it's important to be aware of all the health benefits lactobacillus bacteria can provide.* In addition to supporting your natural defenses, probiotic lactobacillus has the ability to help your body extract more nutrients from the food that you eat.*

Lactobacillus probiotics also have the ability to help:

  • Maintain gastrointestinal function.*
  • Support vaginal and urinary health.*
  • Relieve digestive discomforts.*

Where Can You Find Probiotic Lactobacillus?

You may think it's difficult to find a natural alternative for best digestive system function, such as probiotic lactobacillus, in the aisle of your local grocery store.* However, it may be easier than you think. Kefir, yogurt, miso, tempeh, kimchi, natta, sauerkraut and other fermented foods often contain small amounts of lactobacillus probiotics and can be found in many supermarkets or health food stores. If you don't like these foods, a simple way of benefitting from lactobacillus, usually in larger quantities, will be through a probiotic dietary supplement.* Make sure to look for lactobacillus as an ingredient on the label.
