The word ‘Inflammation’ has been the buzz word in the world of health for some time now. So naturally we are delighted to have been mentioned by Woman & Home as the live cultures to take in order to support gut health and in doing so reducing inflammation.

Woman & home had an editorial on inflammation and how it affects your health

What on earth is inflammation and how can live cultures be helpful you may well be asking?

Inflammation is of course a natural and life supporting healing response where the body reacts to an injury or illness. Inflammation is what you feel when a scratch becomes swollen or your temperature rises. However the problems arise when the trigger for an inflammatory response becomes prolonged or otherwise known as chronic. This leads to a systemic inflammation and this in turn has been linked to the development of autoimmune diseases. Examples of these are MS, arthritis, Type 1 diabetes, psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease.

One of the most powerful ways of reducing inflammation is to improve gut health, as stated in the article:

"There's a whole host of issues that could cause your gut to suffer, from diet (like eating lots of sugar and dairy) to lifestyle (like taking acid blockers to fight acid reflux) to history (like not being breastfed and therefore missing out on lots of friendly bacteria)."

The article then goes on to suggest taking OptiBac ‘For every day’ in order to rebalance the gut bacteria. The article proposes that gut bacteria have been found to have an important influence on gut health and therefore inflammation.

You may be interested to know that we have been mentioned in magazines before, including: Woman Magazine, Look Magazine, and Red.

  • I'm a little bit of a nightmare. I have been diagnosed (for years) with Hashimotos, IBS (I get very bloated) and recently diagnosed early stage primary Lymphedema of the lower legs. I'm only 32 and often take anti-inflams for the pain in my legs. My gut has never been looked after and I'm worried about overall gut health for the future and possibly leaky gut, since I have a lot of conditions.

    There are a million type of 'Probiotics' out there. Im worried about something making me worse, but I also want something that will look after the above conditions.

    I was looking at taking your Superstrength daily - do you think this will be suitable for me?

    Hope you can help.
