Health Benefits of Probiotics
Updated: Jul 1
Did you know that Village Dairy yoghurts are packed with Probiotics - the friendly bacteria? Probiotics, similar to the natural bacteria that are already present in our digestive system, offer several health benefits. Read our previous article to learn more about probiotics and probiotic rich food.
Probiotics have been the go-to recommendation for the maintenance of general health and wellbeing of the digestive system, and also for the treatment and prevention of several digestive health problems and diseases. However, more research and consistent data sets are needed to make definitive conclusions. Given below are a few of the widely known health benefits of taking probiotics:
Improves gut health
Probiotics have shown positive results most commonly in the treatment of diarrhoea, and also other disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn's disease
Several probiotics have shown to reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels, or as we call it - the ‘bad’ cholesterol, in the blood
Lowers blood pressure
Probiotics may help with modest reductions in blood pressure due to the presence of strains of the most common probiotic called Lactobacillus
Helps with skin conditions
Some evidence shows that probiotics can be helpful to relieve skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and eczema
