What are the effects of taking probiotics?

side effects of taking probiotics

A lot of folks ask us if there are any side effects associated with taking probiotic supplements, and here is what we tell them:

They are Natural Health Products that support good digestion and immune health. But, similar to when you consume a new food, they may produce occasional gas or bloating when you first start taking them. We recommend gradually increasing the amount each day until your body adjusts and you are satisfied with the results. Always read and follow the label.

Remember: probiotics are the “good” or “friendly” bacteria that occur naturally in the gut, but factors such as age, diet, and even a change in routine may affect a healthy digestive balance and lessen our numbers of good bacteria. Also, because at least 70% of our immune system is in the digestive tract, having a good balance of bacteria supports healthy immune function.
