Most people deal with indigestion as a fairly common occurrence, either from eating something that just doesn’t agree with them, undiagnosed food allergies, stress, or medication.  The truth is, an upset stomach can happen for many reasons, which can greatly vary from person to person because of differences in body chemistry.  Klaire Labs probiotics offer a variety of dietary supplements for people looking for natural ways to improve digestive as well as general health.

Whether it’s for health reasons, aesthetic improvement, or striving for a more simplified lifestyle, most of us rank choosing more nutritious foods somewhere among our daily goals.  Even with careful planning, shopping, and brown-bagging, it’s hard to say no to the occasional treat–sweets, processed foods, or an overindulgence of starches and simple carbohydrates.  While from a basic nutritional standpoint our bodies forgive these in small amounts, we still usually pay the penalty in the form of an upset stomach, bloating, or irritable bowels.

What’s Behind the Delicate Chemistry That Can Throw Off Our Digestion?

Our digestive tracts already house a population of bacteria, some of which aid in digestion and help us keep up a healthy metabolism, and some of which can cause negative effects such as disease and inflammation.  The types and amounts of bacteria differ among people, but the balance of gut bacteria is thought to make the difference between healthy digestion and problems like upset stomach, diarrhea or constipation, bloating, or gas.

We can disturb this balance with poor dietary choices, unknowingly feeding the bad bacteria with a diet high in sugar or simple starches that break down to sugar.  Other causes are not as easy to prevent:  stress, lack of sleep, and some medications.

A Convenient and Natural Answer

When we add fermented foods to our diet–yogurt, kefir, fermented vegetables, soy products–their health benefits arise from the live cultures of good bacteria in the process of making them.  Probiotics give us these benefits easily and naturally, lowering the proportion of harmful bacteria or even replacing them with the addition of more of the good.

Browse the carefully-balanced formulas by Klaire Labs probiotics for your specific needs.  Look for a supplement with Lactobacillus to resolve diarrhea, and Bifidobacterium to fight infection and help digest fiber.  The inclusion of alpha lipoic acid, an antioxidant, boosts immunity, and alpha-ketoglutaric acid helps to more easily process amino acids.  A great all-around supplement, B Complex Plus 100 provides the body with more than its full daily doses of vitamins B-6 and B-12, which help fuel the nervous system and brain as well as the digestive system.
