Probiotic Supplements – Kenya

In Kenya, most of us believe that all probiotics are equal and that all you need to do is to take some yogurt labeled as “Probiotics Yoghurt”.

There are 3 MAIN types of probiotics namely:

  • Lactobacillus
  • Bifidobacterium
  • Saccharomyces boulardii

Each of these 3 main types has sub-classes and each subclass has certain benefits to certain body areas.

Women Health Probiotics

Lactobacillus acidophilus is the most talked-about strain of probiotic when it comes to establishing and maintaining a healthy vaginal balance.

Two other important strains include lactobacillus rhamnosus and lactobacillus reuteri.

Weight Loss Probiotics

Of all the probiotic bacteria supplements studied to date, Lactobacillus gasseri shows some of the most promising effects on weight loss.

Such strains are seldom formulated alone as a supplement, but rather as a compound formulation with other probiotics.

Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium probiotics have also shown to have an effect, especially on the midsection.

Probiotics & IBS

Probiotics from the Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus, and Saccharomyces families have shown particular promise, specifically, L. Planatarum species that showed 78% symptoms improvement after 8 weeks in a research study.

Again these types of probiotics come in compounded form with many strains that have been shown to be effective.

Probiotics & Lactose intolerance

The NHS acknowledges that certain types of probiotics like Lactobacillus acidophilus could help with the reduction of lactose intolerance symptoms.
