The term ‘probiotic’ may have gained some fancy among people nowadays. Lots of probiotic products are launching every now and then. But what we miss out is, they have been around for centuries. Fermentation of food and beverages started as early as 17th century. The ones which had live strains of microbes like yeast and bacteria (good ones) at the stage of consumption could be called the probiotic products. The rest are just fermented products from which the microbes are filtered out later. From the early age till now, there has been a massive development in probiotic products, especially probiotics for men.

But men and women are made up differently both inside and out. Same approach cannot be taken to treat each of them. Unlike women, men do not have reproductive parts inside the body. There are differences in hormones and even colon environment. In some cases men are more prone to certain diseases like Prostate cancer. Same goes for women.Conditions like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel diseases (IBD), Gallstones, chronic constipation etc. are more common for women.

Due to this, probiotics for men and women are specially made for providing specific treatments for each of the sexes. This will maximize the benefits that we receive from probiotic products.
