Antibiotics alter intestinal microflora, and can result in the proliferation of antibiotic resistant bacteria. Probiotics promote naturally healthy microflora and support normal intestinal microbiota following antibiotic therapy.
IBS affects nearly 5 million Canadians and can also result from altered intestinal microflora. This leads to malabsorption of bile acids - which aid in fat digestion - and in turn, increases fluid and mucus secretion into the colon for bile acid dilution. As Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium help reabsorb bile acids, less water enters the colon, decreasing diarrheal occurrence.
In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial involving 52 adults with IBS, daily supplementation with CUL-60, CUL-21, CUL-20 and CUL-34 significantly improved quality of life and bowel habit satisfaction scores, and decreased the number of days with pain within 10 weeks.
