GUT WOES NOT HELPED BY PROBIOTICS!
HIGHLY touted probiotics don’t do much for gut health, including digestive conditions like Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis or irritable bowel syndrome, according to the American Gastroenterological Association. Probiotics are tiny living organisms, including certain bacteria and yeasts, usually found in foods like yogurt or dietary supplements. They aren’t considered drugs, so they aren’t regulated like pharmaceutical products. That means there’s no scientific research on how they may help treat a disease. If you’re starting a probiotic regimen, consult your doctor.
