Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts promoted as having various health benefits. They're usually added to yoghurts or taken as food supplements, and are often described as 'good' or 'friendly' bacteria. Probiotics are thought to help restore the natural balance of bacteria in your gut (including your stomach and intestines) when it has been disrupted by an illness or treatment. IBS and diarrhoea: "Probiotics may help to reduce bloating and flatulence in some people with IBS. This is supported by a research published in 2010, although we don't yet know the extent of the benefits, nor the most effective type of probiotic. Probiotics won't work for everyone with IBS, but if you want to try them, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) suggests taking them for at least four weeks, at a dose recommended by the manufacturer, to see if they help. There's some evidence that probiotics can shorten an episode of diarrhoea caused by a stomach bug by about a day. Read the NHS Choices analysis of research into diarrhoea caused by a stomach bug. Read the NICE guidelines for managing IBS in adults." Gut Support and Health: "Without probiotics, antibiotics can sometimes wipe out the protective gut bacteria, resulting in diarrhoea. Probiotics given with antibiotics may also reduce the risk of developing a Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) infection. C. difficile are potentially dangerous bacteria that can cause diarrhoea and life-threatening complications. They can infect the gut if the balance of gut bacteria is disturbed by antibiotics. Probiotics are thought to directly kill or inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, stopping them producing toxic substances that can make you ill. Some studies have found that certain probiotics, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, may help to reduce the symptoms of lactose intolerance, which include stomach cramps, flatulence and diarrhoea."
