LOS ANGELES, CA--(MARKET WIRE)-June 25, 2008 -
According to gastroenterologist Dr. Eamonn Quigley, your overall health depends on the healthy functioning of your digestive system. Your digestive system not only pulls nutrients from food to nourish the body, but it participates in protecting it from disease. The bacteria that populate the digestive tract play a major role in both of these functions.
Imbalances in the types of gut flora - friendly vs. harmful - can lead to digestive upsets, which if left unchecked, can lead to far more serious health problems. One such condition is Irritable Bowel Syndrome, (IBS).
IBS is the most common, chronic medical condition in the Western world. Approximately 40% of those with IBS have symptoms severe or frequent enough to disrupt their daily lives.
While the cause of IBS has not been clearly identified, new clinical evidence suggests that an alteration of the normal bacteria flora may be to blame, making Probiotics one of the most promising supplements to recently emerge. Probiotics are live, microorganisms that when administered in adequate amounts provide an excellent health benefit.
In "Probiotics and Digestive Health," you will discover how Probiotics work and why they are so critical for regulating overall digestive health. In addition, you will learn the differences between Probiotic strains and the promise of a newly discovered strain - Bifidobacterium infantis 35624 (Bifantis) for relieving IBS and other GI problems.
Dr. Eamonn Quigley is available for interviews to share important information about the health benefits of Probiotics.
