AMSURG Partner Shekhar Challa, M.D., Endoscopy and Surgery Center of Topeka, was featured on Today’s TMJ4, an NBC-affiliated TV station in Milwaukee, talking about probiotics and how he believes them to be the new vitamin.
“Around 30 years ago, we used to take vitamins only if we needed them. Now, we take vitamins because they help you with so many conditions. I believe that’s where we are headed with probiotics,” Challa said.
Challa also talked about how benefits of probiotics go beyond digestive health. Probiotics can decrease the incidence of colds, urinary tract infections, allergies eczema and help with weight loss.
