We're really chuffed to have been mentioned in the latest Bella magazine, especially as they've dedicated a double-page spread to probiotics and how they could help with a variety of health conditions.


The article starts by introducing probiotics as good bacteria which, "help the body break down food and absorb nutrients, and boost immunity." It then talks about how lifestyle and diet as well as other factors such as taking antibiotics can decrease the good bacteria in our gut.

The article then moves on to how probiotics may help with bloating, constipation, IBS, how they may help prevent traveller's diarrhoea, as well as the importance of taking a probiotic when you've been prescribed antibiotics.

Our own 'Bifidobacteria & fibre' product gets a mention in the 'Probiotic Supplements' section, where the article recommends, "If you want to be a bit more 'regular', try OptiBac Probiotics Bifidobacteria & fibre."
There are also a number of great tips in the article such as trying probiotics for a number of weeks before evaluating whether the product is for you; "Try probiotics for at least four weeks. Some may take up to 12 weeks to work fully. If you don't get results, try a product with different bacteria strains".

Dietary tips such as eating plenty of foods which include prebiotic fibres which "feed the bacteria in your gut" and can be found in foods such as apples, bananas, sauerkraut, lentils and onions to name a few from the article.

Bella also looks at five burgeoning areas of research for probiotics and how they may help with health conditions such as eczema, depression, allergies and immunity, high cholesterol, and obesity, in the future.

Overall we couldn't be happier to see probiotics being featured more and more in the press these days. We're also seeing a deeper understanding of the subject by the journalists writing the articles and this can only be a good thing for our industry.
