There are over 100 trillion microorganisms that live in your digestive tract. So it’s therefore not surprising that bacteria levels can become unbalanced, causing your digestive tract to function improperly. This happens in people who don't have Crohn's Disease.
To combat this, many people use a probiotic to help get their digestive tract back on track. Probiotics are a type of beneficial bacteria that can help aid digestion but the question of whether they can they help those living with Crohn’s disease needs to be answered.
It makes sense that in recent years scientists have begun to explore the use of certain strains of probiotics for treating Crohn’s Disease along with other types of bowel conditions. Probiotics are good bacteria which are thought to enhance digestion, absorption, and processing of foods through the intestinal tract.
In people with Crohn’s disease, the immune system attacks organisms that it thinks don’t belong. By using the right type of probiotic dietary supplements to restore the original microorganisms to your digestive tract, you may be able to tame an overly aggressive immune system and keep your crohn's flare ups under control. So YES it can help.
Not all probiotics are going to be alike and some brands and mixtures of bacteria are very likely going to be more effective than others. So I am very careful about what I use and recommend.
