A blend of 20 gluten free wholefoods broken down by a superculture of probiotics (food based probiotics). Certified organic and made with selected non gluten free wholefoods, in a readily absorbable format. The 20 living wholefoods are broken down (fermented) by Lactobacilli bacteria to enhance the foods goodness. The bacteria naturally break the foods down to allow optimum nutrient absorption.
Why gut bacteria is important…
Microbiologists have known for some time that different diets create different gut flora, but previous research has focused on mice instead of humans, leaving the actual relationship between our food and our stomach bacteria unclear. A new study, published December 2014 in Nature, indicates that these changes can happen incredibly fast in the human gut—within three or four days of a big shift in what you eat.
Chang, a scientist who has worked on the connection between B. wadsworthia and colitis in mice, agrees that the new study does nothing to prove the same for humans. But he thinks there may be something there. “For the lay public, it underscores the importance of diet in health and disease. People should pay more attention to what they eat. But it rests on scientists to recognize that dietary discipline has these varied effects, and to understand what each component does so we can design healthier diets.” Dramatic changes in our diet, he says, could very well be the cause of “Western disorders” such as inflammatory bowel disease and obesity.
What do probiotics do?
Probiotics help move food through your gut. Researchers are still trying to figure out which are best for certain health problems. Some common conditions they treat are:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Infectious diarrhea (caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites)
- Antibiotic-related diarrhea
- There is also some research to show they ease the symptoms of non-stomach-related problems. For example, some people say they have helped with:
- Skin conditions, like eczema
- Urinary and vaginal health
- Preventing allergies and colds
- Oral health
