By now, almost everyone has heard of good bacteria, the active cultures in a range of dairy products such as yogurt and kefir (and even some cheeses), and in fermented foods such as miso, kimchi and sauerkraut.
Most of these are tasty additions to our diet that can also help improve our overall digestive health. But can they also boost the immune system?
Studies have shown that adding good bacteria (or beneficial bacteria) to your diet gives a wide range of benefits for people of all ages, as well as unborn children and those who are nursing. Some of the most commonly studied strains promote T cells and the so-called Killer cells. Some of the immune cells triggered also appear to have cancer-fighting properties.
Good bacteria taken by women during pregnancy appear to affect the immune system of the unborn infant. Taken in childhood, meanwhile, evidence suggests they help young children avoid immune-mediated diseases, including colds, asthma, eczema and type 1 diabetes.
The effects of good bacteria are well-documented in relation to improving digestive and gut health in a number of ways. They can help offset the side-effects of antibiotics which kill both harmful and helpful bacteria at the same time, reintroducing the helpful bacteria into the body and also boost the level of immune cells in the mucous membranes of the intestines.
In one study on good bacteria, immune function, infection and inflammation in the body, good bacteria stimulated a range of antibodies. Good bacteria such as lactobacilli and bifidobacteria was found in children to reduce the incidence and duration of diarrhoea. They can also reduce the risk of travellers’ diarrhoea in adults.
These are just some of the reasons that Nua Fertility supplements include good bacteria in their formula. Trust us, your health, your gut and your fertility will reap the benefits.
