Bioglan Biotic Balance is a probiotic. Probiotics are live ‘friendly’ bacteria. I take Bioglan Biotic Balance for 3 reasons:

  1. it works
  2. it contains four different strains
  3. it’s easy to take.

I notice a positive impact from Bioglan Biotic Balance. This impact is especially helpful when my gut flora is disturbed. Some brands contain only one strain, but Bioglan Biotic contains four. So, this increases the variety of good bacteria in my gut. They come in a one-a-day pill which doesn’t need to be refrigerated.

Are probiotics good for you?

Our gut bacteria can sometimes become unbalanced or damaged (e.g. after an upset tummy). Probiotics can be beneficial in restoring the natural balance of bacteria in your gut. They could also play a role in increasing immune cells in gut lining and reducing inflammation. Scientific research on this potential benefit is currently limited. There is, however, a growing body of research into the health benefits of probiotics due to their popularity. It’s important to note these studies use probiotics which are different to those in supermarket yogurt and not all studies are done on humans. Many people with conditions such as IBS find probiotics beneficial. For further information visit the NHS website.

Bioglan Biotic Balance Ultimate Flora Review

I once suffered food poisoning and staggered into the chemist in search of Immodium. The pharmacist said they don’t have that kind of drug, instead they use high strength Saccharomyces boulardii. Saccharomyces boulardii is one species of good bacteria. I was surprised at how well it worked and was back out sightseeing less than 48 hours later.  I’m a convert! I have chronic gut diseases including coeliac. So taking probiotics is beneficial for me.

A Quality Supplement

Bioglan is a brand I feel I can trust. As probiotics are not considered ‘food’, the regulations are less stringent than for medicines. Not all supplements are of equal quality or efficacy. I can tell these probiotics work for me because if I run out and miss a few days, I notice a change in my bowel symptoms.

A lot of probiotics contain one or two strains of bacteria. So it can be trial-and-error to see which one(s) work best for you. I like the Bioglan Biotic Balance because it contains four different strains:

  1. Lactobacillus acidophilus
  2. Lactobacillus Rhamnosus
  3. Bifidobacterium Longum
  4. Saccharomyces boulardii.

I find this combination more effective than  a single strain.

Easy and Convenient

One of the biggest challenges of probiotic supplements is ensuring they don’t spoil. This can often happen if the temperature or humidity is too high. Some brands require refrigeration to prevent this, but Bioglan uses special technology which allows them to be kept at room temperature. Each capsule contains 20 Billion live cultures which is equivalent to 4 pots of yoghurt. One daily tablet which can be kept in a cupboard or my bag makes them easy and convenient to take. As with a lot of supplements, these should be taken with or after food. This prevents stomach acid affecting them and gives them a chance to colonize your gut.

    Good to know! I normally use Yakult, but have found that it doesn’t really seem to be making much difference recently, so to try a supplement with four different probiotic strains instead of trying them out one at a time seems like a sensible way forward.

      Yes, I’ve tried probiotic drinks and yoghurts before without as much effect (plus they need refrigeration so aren’t as convenient). These are great when you need a boost!

    Been looking for something like this after over eating treats during Christmas. Plus read something about gut bacteria helping with the covid Jab although didn’t understand that too well. Will try these and see if they cure my January bloating

      I hope they help! Gut bacteria are known to be involved in immunity so that might be the link for helping with the vaccine (look after your gut bacteria and your immune function will improve thereby helping to produce covid antibodies).
