By now we’ve all heard about probiotics and the ever-increasing wealth of information about our “microbiomes.” The amount of information can be overwhelming, so let’s take a quick look at what some of the top nutrition experts across the country have to say about probiotics:
Dr. Purna Kashyap, M.B.B.S., Mayo Clinic.
“Probiotics appear to offer a benefit for maintaining health and potentially treating disease. We know the microbiome supports digestion, maintains immune health, influences how drugs are metabolized, controls glucose levels and may even affect your mood and behavior.”
Dr. Mark Pimentel, MD & Director of the GI Motility Program at Cedars Sinai.
“I think probiotics are the way of the future. This is a very exciting time in terms of the microbiome.”
Dr Michael Roizen, Chief Wellness Officer and Chair of the Wellness Institute at the Cleveland Clinic.
“Taking probiotics is a good habit that can really benefit your digestive system, which is intricately connected to your overall health. Yet, most Americans are still unfamiliar with them and the good they can do. The good bacteria in probiotics do more than keep your digestive tract peaceful. They also fight inflammation, urinary tract infections and ulcers; counteract antibiotics. Spore form probiotics are the Chuck Norris of probiotics: total tough guys.”
Dr. Mary Ellen Sanders, Chief Science Executive of the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP).
“Probiotics provide an extra layer of strength. They behave like soldiers in your intestinal tract to combat pathogens.”
