Gut Health and Probiotics
Whether it’s ‘superfoods’, ‘detoxes’ or ‘charcoal tea’, the science is always worth questioning – but not with probiotics. It’s been incredibly exciting to see the long overdue rise of gut health, but why is gut health so important?
A healthy gut means a healthy body.
Probiotics are being treated as the new multivitamin – media and health practitioners scale them to the same degree of importance as proper hydration. Our microbiome is slowly worsening, thanks to the inflation of toxic exposure in today’s world. Therefore, the practise of a daily probiotic can only do wonders for the vast majority of us.
Unfortunately, with the probiotic trend came an overload of poor quality, high cost supplements. Many consumers buy these without researching what is truly inside them and suffer more consequences than benefits. Finding a clean, trust worthy brand can be stressful, which a poor gut definitely doesn’t need. Therefore, I want to share my absolute favourite go-to brand, Proven Probiotics!
Proven Probiotics: 101
I’ve been using ProVen Probiotics for a long time at my practise, they’re the one and only probiotic I trust for my clients.
Proven are owned and managed by Dr Nigel Plummer, a world-renowned expert in the field of probiotics. Dr Plummer produced his first human probiotic in 1994, having previously worked in the field of animal probiotics. With his 20-strong team of scientists and researchers,
Dr Plummer then developed the Lab4 consortia of probiotics used in ProVen products around 15 years ago. Since then, the Lab4 consortia have been subject to continuous research.
“It was simple really,” says Dr Plummer of his motivation for founding ProVen, “I wanted to take the best of everything I’d learnt over the past 30 years and show people that probiotics really can benefit family health.”
30 years’ experience in probiotics, coupled with continual research and new product development, makes ProVen one of the world’s most respected producers of probiotics.
“Over the last 15 years, we’ve become the only people producing probiotics who are
doing substantial research,” says Dr Plummer, “I am very proud that we are able to
provide that evidence base for people who are looking for a probiotic supplement.”
ProVen products have been successfully used in research relating to allergy, common illnesses and impaired digestion They’re designed to be used in pregnancy, through infancy, childhood and into adulthood. More recently, the company has also undertaken research into the use of the Lab4 consortium of probiotics to support both mood and performance.
Today, Dr Plummer lectures across the world to scientific audiences on the role of the microbiome in intestinal and immune health. But, his passion remains in demonstrating the everyday practical benefits of probiotics for families across the UK.
I advocate probiotics to all ages and all lifestyles, from infants with severe eczema to adults with poor digestion. There is truly a probiotic for every lifestyle!
A probiotic can only thrive if you are striving for a happy, healthy body.
