Good gut bacteria is a hugely underrated benefit for your physical well-being.
Did you know that there are roughly 450 or so different species of bacteria right now sitting in your gastrointestinal tract? If you put all of those little critters on a kitchen scale, they’d add up to about three pounds. Now, I don’t know about you, but that seems like a significant enough population to be concerned about! We need to be sure that at least 85% of those bacteria are in the helpful bacteria court—the probiotic side of the equation.
Those probiotics activate T-cells (the cancer fighters) and trigger a multitude of immune system reactions throughout your entire body. Your body is counting on 15% or less of your intestinal flora to be pathogenic, so it’s up to you to do what you can to keep things balanced in an optimal way.
Not convinced yet that you need to be getting more probiotics into you? Read this list of reasons why I recommend eating probiotics and supplementing with them, and then decide!
*Reverse ulcers. Probiotics can actually reverse IBS, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and ulcers. If you’ve had a gut inflammation of any kind, get probiotics into you asap.
*Weight loss. Recent research shows that certain strains of probiotics, (lactobacillus in particular) actually help to prevent belly fat!
*Immunity boost. Probiotics may help prevent colds, allergies, and flu.
*Better breastmilk. If pregnant women and nursing mothers take probiotics, studies show mom’s breast milk has enhanced immune protection for baby, but remember to work with your practitioner on what’s best for you.
*Relief from GS symptoms. If you’re suffering from gluten sensitivity (GS) or celiac symptoms, you may find relief from probiotics being added to your diet.
*Beat the yeast. A healthy balance of probiotics in the system may help prevent yeast infections.
*Prevent cancer. Probiotics help to nourish certain enzymes in the body which may help to reduce tumor production in your body.
*Fight GMOs. We have such a corrupt food supply right now that GMOs are in the least suspected places. If you eat any non-organic meat or processed foods containing GMOs, you are consuming antibiotics. The intake of these foods kills healthy bacteria in the gut so you have to consume probiotics to ensure balance is restored. A doctor by the name of Natasha Campbell-McBride famously cured her son’s autism by restoring healthy probiotic levels in his body, thereby relieving inflammation in his body. The diet she developed is known as the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) diet and it is followed widely throughout the United States and Canada.
So how do you get all the probiotics you need?
One way is eating fermented foods which are teeming with probiotics. Some types of fermented foods include • kimchi • miso • kefir • sauerkraut. Easy foods to add to your diet, although you won’t get all the strains your body possibly needs.
Secondly, you can take a supplement–with all the benefits from doing this one thing, I cannot for the life of me, understand why you wouldn’t.
