Many different strains of probiotic organisms are in use, which has different but overlapping benefits.

What is a probiotic?

Supplementation with probiotics has many mechanisms of action that benefit health, including but not limited to:

  • Supporting metabolic activity, such as the production of short-chain fatty acids and vitamins, nutrient absorption, and digestion of lactose
  • Adhering to intestinal epithelial cells to help maintain a healthy balance of organisms in the intestinal tract
  • Helping to establish populations of good bacteria after disruption in balance
  • Supporting immune function
  • Promoting intestinal epithelial cell survival
  • Supporting healthy bowel function
  • Degrading oxalates Probiotics can be obtained through supplementation or food, e.g. buttermilk, yoghurt, kefir, some types of cheeses, soy beverages and plants. Dietary diversity and taking a variety of probiotic species and strains are methods that help support a healthy microbiome.
