In clinical practice, we see patients with complaints that cross the entire spectrum of health. On of the most common concerns is associated with digestive or gastrointestinal (GI) health. Patients may have constipation, diarrhea, bloating and/or chronic GI infections such as Candida; or associated problems such as small-intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).

Probiotics have ample research suggesting their ability to support a healthy digestive tract. The digestive tract is an extremely dynamic environment that, when properly balanced and healthy, works in amazing ways.

The clinical use of probiotics has been evolving over time. Consider a type of beneficial bacteria that was actually developed from studies looking at the relationship of the microbiota on the root system of plants and the microbiota in the human digestive tract. Efficacy has been shown in treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
