Before doing any research, I thought probiotics were just another fad diet thing too. I gotta tell you though, probiotics are the truth. 80% of our immune system is located in our gut. Maintaining an efficient digestive system is crucial to being healthy and staying healthy. High cholesterol, irritable bowel syndrome, candida, skin problems including eczema, reduced immunity, infections, other autoimmune problems, even food poisoning, and so much more.....can all occur from poor gut flora.
Ok so how do you know if you possibly have a gut flora imbalance? You're most likely included in the "Poor Gut Flora Club" if:
📌a doctor told you (hello, Captain Obvious)
📌you've been on any type of antibiotics in the last two years. Yeahhhh, TWO years. that's how long it can take to restore your gut after one single round.
📌if you have gas or an upset stomach often
📌if you have bad breath often
📌if you take supplements!
Now before you run to the store...
Be careful in selecting your probiotic; most on the store shelves are worthless. There are a few good ones out there... and this is what's working best for my family:
Florify has 10 billion colonies of flora from 7 important bacteria strains. Each strand focuses on something different, so finding the right strands are super important. Florify also has fructooligosaccharides(FOS) as a prebiotic. All bacteria, good and bad, need a food source. The problem is, if there are too many sugars in the digestive system the bad bacteria can outgrow the good. This can lead to any of the problems I mentioned above. FOS is the solution there. They push your probiotics into action.
A probiotic is a super easy way to keep your digestive system in tip-top condition and get more nutrition our of your food and supplements. Our immune systems are stronger than ever! #gettingreadyforwinter #nosickness #healthygut
