Getting to the Guts of Good Health with LGG®

A Healthy Microbiome = A Healthy Body

Do you experience:
• Uncomfortable digestive symptoms?
• Eczema, allergies, hay fever or autoimmunity?
• Do you want to reduce eczema and allergy in your children?
• Have you had antibiotics and ‘not been right’ since?

While these conditions affect your body in different ways, they have one thing in common – they are all influenced by the microbiome, the full complement of microorganisms (e.g. bacteria, yeasts and their genes) that live in and on us. The balance of microbes in the gut (the gut microbiota) in particular plays in important role in the health of the whole body.

LGG® – The World’s Most Studied Probiotic

If you are aware of or interested in the microbiome and probiotics, you may have heard of Lactobacillus rhamnosus (LGG®), simply because it is THE most researched probiotic in the world. For the uninitiated, probiotics are live microorganisms that when consumed, impact the microbiome and deliver health benefits to the person. Specific probiotic stains have different actions in the body, for example LGG® plays an important role in maintaining or restoring function to the digestive tract and regulating immunity. Your Practitioner will prescribe the specific probiotic strain(s) best suited to your health condition.
