Are probiotics the next “wonder pill” when it comes to treating intestinal issues?
When it comes to treating GI issues, a lot of people are looking for well-meaning ways to conquer their GI symptoms. But so often they aren’t aware of the true, current state of their gut health which really depends on the balance of their gut bugs or microbiome.
Do you know that some gut infections like SIBO can get worse because the good gut bacteria are in the small intestines where it shouldn’t be causing bloating and discomfort? Answer “Yes” or “No” and feel free to place your questions in the comment box below.
Apart from conditionals like SIBO, investing money in your standard drugstore probiotics can be a waste since many of those brands contain dead cultures that don’t have a long shelf life. Medical grade probiotics, on the other hand, have been tested and will actually put the expiration date on the product. They guarantee the bacteria are still potent until this expiration date. This is important because you don’t want to be taking a product that has “dead” bugs.
While including probiotic supplements for your gut can be smart, enjoying naturally fermented foods where the cultures are live is a smart idea too. These foods are rich in probiotic bacteria and increase your gut microbiome, improve your digestion system, and also support your immune system.
