We think it’s fantastic that the media are highlighting the importance of good gut health, and we’re also getting a warm fuzzy feeling because newspapers and glossy mags are recommending our brand. In their August 2017 issue, ‘Woman and Home’ magazine have published a really great article about the importance of keeping your digestion in tip top form, with some excellent tips on how to do so, and our ‘Bifidobacteria & fibre’ is their choice for constipation symptoms.

'Womand and Home' magazine recommend our 'Bifidobacteria & fibre' for constipation
The featured OptiBac Probiotics product contains the probiotic strain Bifidobacterium lactis BB-12® together with 4g of prebiotic fibres. This strain of bacteria is almost a celebrity in its own right, as it’s one of the most extensively researched bacterial strains in the world. It was used in one of the largest ever clinical trials on probiotics, where the results suggested that it may improve bowel regularity and constipation symptoms. Read more about this research here: Largest ever probiotic trial supports BB-12 for regularity. It’s no surprise, then, that this strain is also included in our latest resource, The Probiotics Database, which presents an overview of the world’s most extensively researched probiotics.

Gut health linked to immunity and mental health?


I strongly recommend reading this fabulous ‘Woman and Home’ article as it’s full of good, solid advice presented in a way that’s very easy to understand, even if the whole subject of gut health and function is completely new to you. The article explains more about the link between the gut and mental health, and also the connection between immunity and intestinal function. We’ve previously written about these connections on our own blog – check out these related articles here:
Probiotics for immunity: a look at the research

I was delighted to see that the authors of the 'Woman and Home' article also highlighted the importance of stress management, exercise, and good eating habits such as chewing properly – we don’t automatically associate these with digestive function but they’re hugely important. There are some really useful diet tips, and lots of food for further thought to get you thinking more about maintaining the health of your ‘second brain’. Top marks, ‘Woman and Home’ for trying to improve women’s gut health and of course, thanks for the recommendation.
