PROBIOTICS - You may have heard of the growing trend, but what are they?

Probiotics are live, ‘friendly’ bacteria and yeasts, which help restore the natural balance of bacteria in your gut, stomach and intestines. The balance can be upset by everyday factors including stress, ageing or poor diets, and  this can lead to poor immunity, digestive discomfort and an general lack of energy (among other symptoms)! Probiotics have found to benefit conditions such as IBS, colds/flus and cystitis. In short, your gut plays a very important role in maintaining overall health, and Probiotics assist your gut by providing natural support to tackle these issues and keep your body working the way it should! 

Is the bacteria safe?

Unless you have an immune system problem, Yes! In fact, Optibac Probiotics (the brand stocked by us) offers some of the most researched probiotic strains in the world, which have undergone rigorous testing to ensure the highest quality both in terms of safety and doing their job to access specific health benefits.


Here at Ringwood Health Clinic we stock a large range of Optibac Probiotics; they are a U.K family-run business. They have taken specific probiotic strains to target specific health conditions/life situations - ranging from pregnancy/women, travelling abroad, taking alongside antibiotics and everyday tablets - there is something for everyone!
