Use of Probiotics
I would like to know if you should continuously use this or if there is a specific period...... I do have a spastic colon, excercise regularly and try to follow a health diet.

Dear Rachel

You can certainly use probiotics continuously. There are many benefits to using certain probiotics for long periods of time. Some indications to use them for longer are the benefits to your gut health, preventing diarrhoea, improving nutrient absorption, and then some probiotics offer immune health benefits that may help to prevent minor infections and illnesses.

If you have found a probiotic that assists your spastic colon, you can certainly continue with it for as long as you need to.
