Did you know there’s a link between recurrent UTIs and cognitive decline?
Most of us already have a rudimentary understanding of probiotics — that they’re healthy gut bacteria which help us digest food, keep us regular, and maintain balanced immune function.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Healthy probiotic bacteria may help us with situations as diverse as weight loss, skin conditions, cholesterol, and even our moods.
This talk will skip right over the basics, and get into some of the really interesting stuff. We’ll look at specific issues and needs effecting women and people over the age of 60. And we’ll explore established and emerging research that points to a connection between UTIs (which probiotics can prevent and mitigage) and cognitive decline in aging. We’ll also explore non-traditional probiotics made from yeast, not bacteria, that powerfully prevent infections and antibiotic-induced diarrhea.
