Benefits Of Probiotics For Men

What Are Probiotics?

Probiotics are made of good live bacteria and or yeasts that naturally live in your body. You regularly have both good and bad bacteria in your body. Getting an infection means more bacteria are knocking your system out. Good bacteria help eradicate extra bad bacteria, returning the balance. Taking probiotic supplements adds good bacteria to your body.

Here Are Reasons Why Men Should Take Probiotics

  1. Healthy weight management and control appetite. Probiotics help men in appetite control and healthy weight management. Good bacteria strains appear to boost satiety, regulate appetite, decrease emotional eating, and help manage obesity.
  2. Diabetes management. Diabetes is related to bacteria in your gut, and healthy bacteria appear to help improve insulin secretion, insulin resistance, and complications related to diabetes. Intake of lactobacillus and bifidobacterium strains may even help prevent diabetes.
  3. Reduced gastrointestinal conditions. Taking probiotic supplements or eating foods rich in probiotics can reduce diarrhea and other gastrointestinal problems.
  4. Improved oral health. Taking probiotics may help improve oral health, especially your teeth and gums. Good bacteria help reduce the number of harmful bacteria in your mouth that cause bad breath, cavities, and gum disease.
  5. Prostate health. It is important to care for your prostate, with one in eight men diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. It can help to reduce inflammation in the prostate. Good bacteria reduce the bacterial load of E. coli and E. faecalis in urine cultures. This promotes better prostate health and can help prevent swelling of the prostate.
  6. Supports cognitive health. Good bacteria aid the body's response to inflammation and aid in the absorption of nutrients, which in turn promotes cognitive function.
  7. Better psychological health. Probiotics have been shown to reduce depression and anxiety symptoms similar to prescription medications. The link between your gut, brain, and microbiome, and a healthy microbiome appears to reduce depression and anxiety.
