Most of us don’t know how absolutely critical our gut health is to the overall health and functioning of our entire body. Did you know that the same tissue that comprises your gut comprises your BRAIN? If your gut health is off, your brain health is off. Your brain plays a pretty critical role in the overall functioning of your entire body, so wouldn’t it make sense to make gut health a high priority? Probiotics are an important player in promoting gut health.
What are probiotics and why are they important?
Probiotics are bacteria that line your digestive tract and support your body's ability to absorb nutrients and fight infection. You have 10 times more probiotics in your gut than cells in your body! Probiotics support immune function and healthy digestion. Did you know that 80% of your immune system is located in your gut? Also, our digestive system is the second largest part of our neurological system. That’s why the gut is called our second brain. Your digestive system affects every physiological system in your body, even your mental and emotional health. If your gut is “off,” then your thought processes and emotions will be, too.
When a child is born, they already have probiotics in their system, because they are exposed to their mother's bacteria during the time of delivery. This starts a chain of events that causes the infant's GI tract to begin producing good bacteria. Unfortunately, as time goes on, the balance of good bacteria to bad bacteria can be thrown off by things such as using prescription meds, especially antibiotics, as well as high carbohydrate diets, drinking chlorinated or fluoridated water and consuming non-organic meats and dairy products that contain antibiotic residues. High sugar intake, eating GMO foods and grains, emotional stress and exposure to chemicals can also throw the gut flora balance off. The way to fix this is to consume probiotic-rich foods and supplements.
